Digital signage is a critical platform for sharing health and safety information during COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic has spread, the corporate world has changed almost overnight. At Enplug, we’ve seen our customers in non-essential sectors rapidly transition staff to a work-from-home model. At the same time, customers in healthcare, grocery, energy, manufacturing and essential industries are adopting new hygiene and distancing requirements.

That’s why our team responded with powerful new tools that streamline communications for both remote employees and essential on-site staff during COVID-19.
