Fisheye's Anti-Corona Action Plan

16 March 2020

At Fisheye, instead of panicking, we tend to believe that every problem can be viewed as a challenge calling upon our creativity. And in the past few days, our entire team answered exactly that call.

“Desperate times call for desperate measures.”

An age old saying, but more topical than ever, as the current situation concerning the Covid-19 virus has large parts of the world trembling. At Fisheye, instead of panicking, we tend to believe that every problem can be viewed as a challenge calling upon our creativity. And in the past few days, our entire team answered exactly that call.

For starters, where possible our team started working remotely. At least half of our crew of 30 has set up a remote office inside their home walls, surrounded by nothing but their own family. Socially isolated but fully operational, these colleagues use our widely implemented software solutions to keep projects up and running.

Secondly, and main key in this challenge, is our longtime usage of Microsoft Teams. Cloudstored file sharing, project channels, team and personal communication options, video conferences and other possibilities all in 1 software package allow Fisheye to remain operational. Our entire design and content teams have gone remote, including all interns, while accessing our vault files with an encrypted VPN connection.

On top of that our technical support team is currently finishing setup at multiple client locations, all of which have been closed off to the public. Our workshop wizards keep working on current projects in-house, though be it under strict and separate guidelines. We’ve even added the possibility for remote video conferences through webcams in our warehouse.

Times like these ask for a very specific approach, but as a company it’s time to take responsibility. We’re happy to be as flexible as ever to maintain the safety of our coworkers, while joining in on the battle to #flattenthecurve.
In the meantime we’ll stay fully operational, so feel free to reach out to us whenever necessary!
