Siemens Digital Industries’ #TechTalks webinars support customers during Covid-19

Featured Latest Trends & Technology

Around 200 engineers and technicians attend each session

Siemens Digital Industries is running daily ‘#TechTalks’ during Covid-19 to help clients get the most from Siemens products and solutions, maximise uptime, save energy and manage their systems remotely. 

The 45-minute interactive webinars focus on a range of topics covering technologies in manufacturing. Each bitesize talk is run twice daily and includes a question-and-answer session.  The webinars are then available to watch on demand.  

The number of engineers and technicians logging in for each webinar has doubled to almost 200 since its launch in April. It was the Covid-19 lockdown and the work-from-home situation that prompted Siemens Digital Industries to launch the initiative where manufacturing companies and employees are adapting and responding to the new normal.

John Richards, Business Development Executive at Siemens Digital Industries, said;

“Our goal is to attract a following for #TechTalks webinars, with the next phase offering bigger and more refined content. Whilst the lockdown may ease, the ‘new normal’ may require a new sales approach and webinars, exhibitions and conferences delivered virtually may be here for a while longer.”

The sessions are designed to help Siemens’ customers and those interested in Siemens products and services to see what is possible and to get the most out of the solutions.

“Client feedback has been tremendous and has encouraged us to enhance the offering,” added Richards. “We look forward to scaling up and upgrading this model in an effort to reach out and support our customers during this pandemic.”

The webinars run from Monday to Friday with topics at 9am and 2pm and 10am and 3pm UK time. To register please visit:
