People with Disabilities

VGo increases productivity and effectiveness while lowering costs by enabling a person to get to a location instantly and easily. VGo is not designed as a replacement for in-person interaction but rather as the next best alternative to “being” in the workplace. VGo also eliminates the deficiencies associated with other video solutions that are locked to a TV or computer monitor by providing 100% remote controlled mobility.

In addition to "being" at work from home, VGo can help people who can get to the workplace, but who cannot practically move about the facility or campus. A VGo can be used to enable a person to move around in one part of the facility while they are physically in another.

The benefits of using VGo in the workplace include

  • Getting to places previously inaccessible increases opportunities
  • Freedom of movement increases personal interaction with others
  • Quality of life improvements by expanding the work and social environments
  • Costs can be reduced by lowering or eliminating select transportation expenses, and by communications and speeding decision making

VGo gives a person the ability to not only “be” in a distinct location, but also to “move around” in that location.

"There is still an ongoing struggle to eradicate the perception of people with disabilities as invaluable and less than hard-working employees. Often, the words "professional" and "disability" are rarely used in the same sentence. It's commonplace for weaknesses and obstacles to be seen rather than strengths and accomplishments"

"VGo is helping to break down these barriers! When I use VGo, I am able to work at an alternate worksite while still being able to connect with my team, stay up-to-date with my work and provide services to Georgians with disabilities. VGo is helping me in ways that I never thought was possible! This technology is transforming negative perceptions towards people with disabilities and giving hope to those that need it most."

There’s no substitute for being there in person

Informal meetings and ad hoc decision decision-making are more effective face-to-face. Employee motivation is an important element in their productivity.  But how do you keep things running smoothly when you have multiple locations?  Or when you are out of the office developing your business? 

You can be in two (or more!) places at the same time

VGo is used today by executives, managers, and small business proprietors whose productivity and attention to detail contribute to the success of their businesses.  VGo enables managers to “be” in the most important place at the right time without the associated down-time, inconvenience and cost of travel.

With VGo, executives and managers can visit many facilities in a single day. They can tackle a customer or operational crisis instantly.  They can see for themselves and assess the state of distant operations.  They can provide the leadership that’s required to keep the business running smoothly, the employees motivated and messaging on target. VGo facilitates informal/ad hoc meetings around a conference table, in the lab, at the water cooler, walking down the hall or even in the break room.

Executives and managers can arrive on their own and move about a location as if they were there, remotely controlling their movements using an internet-connected PC with audio/visual capability.  VGo is on-demand – just click where you want to go in the building – pop in for a few minutes or stay all day since VGo runs up 12 hours before re-charging.

VGo pays for itself in as little as 30 days by eliminating the cost of several business trips. Intangible benefits are many:


  • Visit multiple locations in a single day…every day
  • Unforeseen problems are tackled quicker and more efficiently contributing to lower costs and on-time performance
  • Teams are more efficient given a manager’s ability to raise their level of participation, inspection and leadership
Executives, managers and small business owners can be where they’re needed, regardless of where they are.
