Webfitters Named a Recipient of WECD's 'We're All Innovating' Contest
When the pandemic hit, our team at Webfitters felt an overwhelming need to extend a helping hand and create an innovative solution that could benefit as many businesses and people as possible. We created the 'Your Event Stream' to allow continued service despite the physical restrictions a mandated lockdown imposed.
Now, we are being recognized for our creative response to the pandemic's many challenges and look forward to the new opportunities this award will bring us.
About the award
To recognize Wisconsin companies for their contributions and creative responses in finding ways to help people in the midst of a pandemic, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) created the 'We're All Innovating Contest'.
A total of $3 million was available in funding and after the judges made their final decisions, 231 Wisconsin businesses were chosen to receive a share of that prize.
Webfitters is proud to be one of the recipients in the 'service and business operation innovations to respond to COVID-19 disruption' category. Our team is grateful to be recognized alongside other companies doing amazing work to confront the adversities we face.
About the Your Event Stream (YES)
Webfitter's Your Event Stream (YES) allows users to stream live events in lieu of a physical presence. This has created opportunities for small businesses to remain operational and still connect with their audiences when it matters most. https://youreventstream.live/
Take for example Jones Funeral Service- when Wisconsin went into lockdown, they were still able to host live stream services so friends and family could say good-bye to a loved one. With features like downloadable and shareable recorded videos, comments via text, and passworded-protected events, YES allows businesses to create a secure, yet intimate way of engaging with their audience.
The funding we received will help our team optimize existing features and develop new technologies within the platform.
We are very honored and humbled to be a recipient of the WECD's award and look forward to further advancing the connectivity capabilities and communication solutions that Your Event Stream offers.
