January 5, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$12
Digital innovation is being driven by an unprecedented pandemic event that is disrupting business models, industries and markets. The COVID-19 pandemic has also revealed business and societal needs that required immediate solutions – and companies across Canada stepped up in innovative ways to solve the need.
Join us for a panel discussion, moderated by Chris Herbert, with three innovators and hear their stories – the obstacles, the innovations and the outcomes:
Responding to the needs of a client providing software to a manufacturer for a newly engineered ventilator, Enable adopted new processes and technologies to quickly deliver quality training videos for healthcare professionals.
COVID-19 created a crisis of food insecurity nationwide, with a 40% increase in demand. Working with Second Harvest, RedBit rescaled and optimized an unscalable web platform to meet the growing need helping thousands of communities get food to people in need.
Understanding the needs of employers to assure the safety and well-being of their employees in their return to work, TEKTELIC launched a low-cost, low-power contact tracing solution to mitigate virus spread on work sites supporting business continuity with a minimal of economic disruption.
