Owl Labs, the leader in immersive video conferencing technology and services, announced the launch of the Work from Home Scheduler (WFH Scheduler), a free household resource management app for booking workspaces and scheduling responsibilities in the home so you can work productively with everyone under one roof. The spread of COVID-19 has forced the closure of schools, offices, daycares, and community spaces; and people are being encouraged to practice social distancing and self-isolation to the greatest extent possible. Globally, millions of people suddenly have to work from home, where they’re sharing limited space with their families, partners, children, roommates, and pets; making it difficult for them to focus and find a productive work/life balance.
Owl Labs’ WFH Scheduler enables users to input their shared household spaces for meetings and work (home office, living room, dining room, bedroom, etc.) and their shared household responsibilities (childcare, pet care, cooking meals, chores, errands, etc.). Users can then “book” spaces within their home the same way they would reserve a conference room at the office, as well as sign up for household responsibilities the same way they would assign deliverables during a meeting. The app then shares these schedules on an easy-to-view calendar that provides transparency to everyone in their home on who is working where, what needs to get done when, and who is responsible for what.
Owl Labs recently conducted a survey on the challenges of working from home during the COVID-19 crisis to 500+ respondents in the U.S. ages 25-64. Key findings from the survey include:
“Owl Labs is constantly innovating new solutions to help people work more productively, no matter where they’re located,” said Frank Weishaupt, CEO at Owl Labs. “Offices have systems in place to improve productivity by reducing space management friction, and the WFH Scheduler is an app that creates a similar system for your home. Greater transparency and understanding into what everyone in your home needs to do can help reduce tension and conflict with your family or roommates so you can respectfully share communal spaces and responsibilities and maintain productivity in these trying times.”
The platform covers e entire enterprise technology space- including emerging technologies like RPA, AI, cloud, automation, and the entire gamut of digital transformation tools, strategies and management decisions.
