WOWBii Interactive, the manufacturer of Interactive Flat Panel Displays (IFDP) is working with Nigerian state governors to establish virtual meetings with immersive collaboration capabilities reducing the need to travel out of their different domains.
The company was said to be achieving this through its Wowbudd platform, which offers technology-enhanced solutions that enable face-to-face interactive telepresence, in-room and virtual annotation and wireless casting, with added digital signage solutions to create Situation Rooms or Command Centers for governors to remain in Business-As-Usual mode despite the global pandemic.
According to a statement issued by the company, the interactive device is a futuristic platform which connects seamlessly with legacy Unified Communication solution kits making it a truly outstanding, hassle-free touch centre for multiple teams and locations.
“This intervention provided exclusively by WOWBii is necessary to mitigate effects of cessation or limitation of physical contacts, in line with World Health Organisation’s (WHO) social distancing recommendation, and to flatten the growth curve of the lethal coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Beyond this, the adoption of immersive virtual meetings and digital interactions have been an evolving paradigm within global businesses and leading government establishments, who are aligning with operational best practice in collaborative interactivities and video conferencing,” the statement stated.
Meanwhile, the Office of the Vice President was said to have started running its virtual meetings on this indigenous product as an innovative solution to the pandemic crisis, while Borno, Nasarawa, Lagos and Plateau States have completed the installation of the WOWBii equipment. Other Nigerian states are in line for installation of the WOWBii infrastructure.
Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder of WOWBii Interactive, Mrs. Terae Onyeje, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating the adoption of immersive virtual interactivity in Nigeria. We are pleased that the Federal and State Governments are using these times to embrace and entrench tech-innovations in governance.”
