To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.

What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
