Posted on March 13, 2020

COVID-19-AV Demand-1200x600

As the numbers of confirmed cases of COVID-19 increase, companies are quickly focusing on safety, collaboration, and efficiency via remote work. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention suggested remote work could mitigate the risk of contracting COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus. These employees would, in theory, need to rely on a video conferencing system, virtual conference platform or mobile office solutions to connect them to others.

With government and school closures, quarantine increases, and millions of companies around the world enforcing work-from-home policies to their employees, the demand for AV solutions is more important than ever. Many organizations are adopting remote work arrangements to slow the spread of COVID-19, and RJ Young is here to help provide assistance to keep your work moving forward while keeping the safety of the community in mind.

Video conferencing connects customers, remote workers, and teams. It offers all the technology and capabilities any business needs to conduct a virtual meeting. Small to large businesses, government, healthcare, corporate, and education can all benefit.  Video or virtual conferencing, online web conferencing, and chat software allows people to maintain some semblance of business as usual. 

With mobile office solutions, you can be in the office no matter where you are. RJ Young will integrate your mobile devices with your network to ensure that you have access to the same data you would when sitting at your desk. 

Your smartphone can be a full extension of your office network so you can scan, upload, organize, and share documents from any device. If you are not working remotely, but trying to keep person-to-person interactions at a minimum instead, you can even print directly from your smartphone and send it to the printer in the conference room, the hallway, or anywhere in the office. 

Is Your Company & Security Team Ready?  

Beware of phishing attacks 

With the rapid transition to a remote workforce, the pressure is on for companies to understand and address a wave of potential security risks. When workers start to connect from home or a coffee shop, they could be using personal devices to send business data over unsecured networks. This could also potentially expose organizations to cyberattacks and computer viruses if precautions are not taken.  

With concerns growing, hackers and thieves are using this threat to phish for information or attempt to infect your computer with a virus. Be extra cautious if you receive any emails with links to sites that claim to show maps of the spread of infection or ask you to log in with your email address and password. 

Be cautious and do not let the concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic trick you or your employees into clicking buttons and opening files you would usually ignore.
