Business Resources for Working Remotely with Gibson Teledata

Dear Fellow Chamber Member,

Thank you for all you are doing for our community during these trying times. By way of assistance, I wanted to reach out to volunteer my company’s services and my personal expertise. One of our premier vendors [www.8×] offers a free video/web conferencing service that might be helpful in keeping your services going strong during Coronavirus “social distancing”.  It is a good way to meet one-on-one with community members or in small groups via a smartphone, tablet or PC.

 I would be happy to meet with you or any of the staff to show you how to use this free tool.  Here are some ways it might help you organization:

  • One on one meetings via video conference.
  • Meetings led by the staff or volunteers – Brady Bunch video for up to 50 participants, including screenshare for presentations.  Even if you don’t have a webcam, you can join audio only.
  • Staff meetings so you can see faces and jointly review documents.
  • Board or committee meetings to screenshare important documents or presentations.
  • You can even join meetings audio only – from a cell phone or a landline.

You can sign up for a free virtual meeting room with this link that will give you audio, web, video conferencing capabilities for meetings up to 50 people. Anyone can sign up for this – it is free.  8×

Additionally, here are some links that provide support for 8×8 Video Meetings:

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or issues that you may have in reference to remote workers or any your business’ technology needs in general.
