The current exceptional conditions represent a heavy additional burden for the traditional die, mold, and model manufacturing as well as production machining and is exacerbating the current economic crisis.
Based on this, the Tebis Consulting team has prepared some information on topics that are currently of particular importance.
We hope that we can support you a little in this way and would be pleased to have you contact us by phone or email.
Try to transfer work to the home office to the extent possible. Click here for more information on how you can use your Tebis workstation from home.
Use modern communications media like Microsoft Teams/Skype for Business, TeamViewer, GoToMeeting etc.
If none of these systems is available to you, use the free version of blizz (https://www.blizz.com/de). The benefit is that you can hold video conferences with up to 5 simultaneous participants and that the software or app works on all common devices (iOS, Android, Windows, etc.). Screens can also be shared, enabling each participant to also view the content of a screen. This helps you when discussing data, designs, presentations or similar items.
In the event of problems installing additional software (e.g. due to a lack of credentials), web-based services such as Google Hangouts (https://hangouts.google.com/) can also be used. In this case no installation is necessary – calls are made from the web browser. However, the caller must have a Google account. The meeting partners do not have to be registered with Google. Video conferences with up to 10 participants are possible. A disadvantage is that screens cannot be shared.
A study by US psychology professor Albert Mehrabian shows that up to 55% of communication is through body language. You should therefore use video conferencing instead of simple telephone calls whenever possible. Suitable webcams are already available for about 30€, such as the Microsoft Lifecam HD-3000 with integrated microphone.
