In times of an emergency, telepresence services are crucial

Telepresence acting as life saving tool for emergency response and preparation is something that many people do not think about. However, there are many ways that telepresence technology can ensure that emergency management agencies are as prepared and connected as they need to be.

Here are a few ways how using telepresence as a service can help in times of an emergency.

Interagency connection:

Emergencies often require the efforts of multiple agencies. These efforts can only happen smoothly when there is communication between the agencies. Vidyo's telepresence technology and cloud hosting by Batipi provides the ability for agencies to hold data sharing and information meetings regardless of where the participants of those meetings are.

Planning:

Planning for emergencies is crucial and sometimes it is important that experts in the field take a look at an agency's emergency plan or help with the development of one. Vidyo is an affordable option for bringing that expertise to you, whether you're five miles from the expert you're working with or hundreds of miles away. Save on the cost of travel expenses and lodging. Communicate with your expert where you are, and where they are.

Training:

Multiple agencies can participate in emergency response training via video collaboration services without the need for travel time and meeting costs. On-going training and certification is critical for emergy response personal; telepresence services make it much easier to deliver to your staff remotely.

Mobile applications:

Remote emergency coordination requires clear communication. Vidyo offers high quality conferencing through its mobile app for Android or iOS smartphones and tablets. This app allows emergency service providers in the field to communicate clearly and seamlessly with 2, 3 or more experts using the mobile devices they have on hand.
