As many workplaces around the world begin to re-open in the wake of COVID-19, keeping employees safe, informed and motivated while maintaining a healthy bottom line has never been more important. Here are a few ways that wireless screen sharing and digital signage with Airtame can help.

After months of remote working, many workplaces around the world are slowly beginning to return. But with a looming pandemic, employers are faced with increased responsibility for employee wellbeing. If you combine this with the heavy financial constraints putting pressure on many industries and businesses, it begs the question: How can workplaces return to the office safely, while maintaining a healthy bottom line? Here are a few ways Airtame can help.

What is Airtame?

Airtame is a combined hardware and software company, offering a range of products that make screens smarter through a combination of wireless screen sharing, digital signage and remote cloud management. You can read more about what we offer here.

Keep people informed with digital signage

Whether you’re operating a small office space or a large warehouse facility, digital signage has a lot to offer when it comes to keeping employees up to speed on important health and safety information. Utilize digital signage with Airtame in meeting rooms, hallways and cafeterias to share practical information such as maintaining a safe distance, sanitizing hands regularly and staying at home if unwell.

After several weeks spent working from home, many will need a bit of extra help as they adapt to being back at the office. Airtame can help teams stay focused by displaying a Trello board on a shared screen to keep track of a joint project and any upcoming deadlines. Hallway displays can also help keep things on schedule with meeting room overviews as a reminder to show up (and finish) on time.

Minimize the risk of contagion with wireless screen sharing and remote device management

Using digital signage in workplaces is not only an effective way to share safety messages and keep employees motivated; the method itself of disseminating information is safe. Any Airtame-equipped screen offers wireless screen sharing, allowing employees to share their visual aids during a meeting or presentation. There are no cables or dongles involved, meaning no need to touch any hardware that would otherwise be a potential vehicle of contagion.

With Airtame Cloud, IT administrators, managers and communications departments can remotely update and manage what is shared on screens around the workplace, without having to physically touch noticeboards in shared spaces, hallways and meeting rooms.

Facilitate collaboration for those who are still working from home

While many are returning to work, some either choose to or are required to continue to work from home, based on individual circumstances. It’s important that employers can remain flexible, finding ways to facilitate collaboration between those who are physically present with those who are working remotely. One common way to do this is via video conferencing.

With Airtame, you can dial into a conference call using your conferencing solution and share your screen using Airtame. There are a few reasons why sharing your screen with Airtame during a conference call can be more effective than having everyone in a meeting room dial into a conferencing call from their personal device:

1. Eliminate that pesky audio feedback loop that can occur when attendees in the same meeting room join a call.
2. Increase your chances of a better quality call by reducing bandwidth consumption.
3. It’s easy! Share instantly from any device via AirPlay, Miracast and Google Cast, without needing to install anything. Those joining remotely can still screen share via the conferencing platform.

Keep costs down

One of the biggest worries on people’s minds at the moment is money. This is understandable given the severe financial impact COVID-19 has had on global economies, and the somewhat unfavorable projections for the near future.

Airtame is a significantly more affordable option for combined wireless screen sharing and digital signage compared to other providers.

The product itself is also designed to save time and improve focus, which results in a far more productive workplace and a healthier bottom line. Here’s how:

Don’t let the return to work overwhelm you. Share important safety information, keep employees safe, and save money with Airtame.
