Communication and collaboration tools have been a lifeline for employees working from home. Voice and video conferencing, chat and instant messaging, presence, and document sharing have enabled remote workers to stay in contact with colleagues and streamline workflows.
Real-time communications have transformed maritime, energy and other industries with offshore operations. In the past, two-way radios provided the only communications link between offshore sites and onshore locations. Personnel working on vessels and offshore facilities were essentially cut off from the rest of the world.
