At Catalysts, we have been working in distributed teams for years. We live the “New World of Work”. We work in our offices, at customers, at home or in a train. To sustain broadband communication even when working in a distributed setting, we have developed a new way of telepresence (in addition to instant messaging solutions): our “CatPhones“.
The video demonstrates early prototypes of our CatPhones in action (back then, we called it “CoffeCam”).
With the help of a UPS (hidden in the lower part) the CatPhones can easily be dragged from one room to another. The touchscreen makes it convenient and easy to use and through LAN cable, Wifi and even LTE connection, it can be used in nearly any situation.
Until the end of the year, Catalysts will implement 50 CatPhones in our Catalysts offices, at client locations, at our partners, and in our home offices.
