How to control Double?
Therefore Double is ideal for business use, for events as well for higher education. It’s the innovation in the field of teleworking. Companies can expand their policy about teleworking and create a strong cooperative environment at the same time for the extern employee as well as the entire team. The arrival of Double makes it possible for growing companies to hire extern experts that may be on the other side of the world. Where this previously seemed impossible, gives Double the chance, by the simple way of teleworking.
can you not be present personally at an event? Double still makes this possible. With Double you can easily move around in the room, allowing you to keep an eye on whether or not the event is going well and gives you the opportunity to speak to visitors and co-workers. Double is also used at various museums. With Double you won’t have to miss a visit to the museum due to illness or other reasons, but you can still experience it. Is there a special opening, but the guest of honor can’t be there? Double makes sure the guest of honor can still take care of the opening.
Double is also being used in higher education in different ways. It is used in both interactive online classrooms and in ordinary classrooms, where the students themselves are present, to make it possible for the professors to teach at all times whether they are around or not. Double also can be used for educational tours for example in libraries or to demonstrate new innovative technologies. As well in the business world it also is possible for extern students to be present in the classroom in real time. This may be the case when the student is in the hospital or has to work at home for whatever reason.
Double is the most innovative way of teleworking. The telepresence robot makes sure you don’t have to miss any event, meeting or other important matter, when you can be there in person. Because he can be present anywhere it is the ideal way for external employees to communicate with their co-workers that are someplace else.
Through the mobility of Double you are able to move freely around the work floor and get in touch of each co-worker for a question of chat without planning a meeting. Because this saves a lot of time, it will eventually lead to increased labor productivity.
A large part of the communication between members on the work floor is informal. The external employees will miss these informal conversations and will only be approached for very important matters. This means that the external employees are less connected and involved in the daily activities within the company. Double gives back the external employees their involvement, by being present at the work floor all day, therefore they don’t have to miss any ‘hall conversation’ anymore.
Because of the presence of every external team member on the work floor, the social bond will be increased between the geographically dispersed team members. They too can easily communicate with each other through Double and will therefore build up a collegiate bond more quickly. Because everyone Is present on the work floor, improvised meetings can take place more easily.
Double can be seen as a very valuable investment. In addition to all the aforementioned benefits, Double also provides a massive saving at the traveling expenses and accommodation costs of the external employees. They won’t have to travel or arrange an accommodation anymore to attend a meeting or event.
