We at Blrt spend a lot of time (okay, all of our time) thinking about humans and how they interact with one another. Not even happy hour is spared our dialogue on this subject. However, through the very nature of our boundless genius (and less as a result of our sheepish modesty) we have also created a product that helps out our fuzzier friends.
We’re talking about animals, of course – not James in the mailroom (fuzzy as he and that glorious beard of his may be).
Dr. Geoff Wilson brings vets together
Dr. Geoff Wilson is a veterinarian, adventurer, and Blrt power user. An early adopter of our platform, Geoff has been using Blrt to alleviate the frustrations that sometimes mount when trying to get in touch with a colleague about a patient they share. Empowered by the ability of Blrt to shift time and place, Geoff is able to discuss x-rays and other medical data with vets in other practices and cities without the need to schedule a meeting or play phone tag.Read the story of Dr. Geoff Wilson: #veterinarian, #adventurer, and #Blrt power user.

Take a look:
When Geoff sends a colleague a Blrt of an x-ray, the recipient is able to see his notations and hear his comments as he manipulates the image. However, at any time his recipient can pause the Blrt and zoom or move the image by themselves to get a better look. If another doctor is added to the conversation later, every previous Blrt is still there for them to view. The newly added doctor can catch up on the patient’s progress without the need to resend files or offer further explanation.
Team Blrt love our own fuzzy office friend, Dexter [note from Dexter: “Woof!”], so we are thrilled to see our technology being used in this way.
Considering none of their patients understand what they’re saying and can’t tell them where it hurts, communication can be seen as a frustration for veterinarians. To ease that frustration, we at Blrt have developed a product to facilitate better communication between them and other humans.
Blrt is a communications platform, with mobile and desktop interfaces. It enables people to get their point across quickly, by talking, pointing and drawing over images, documents and websites. The result is a video-like recording that can be shared with others, called a Blrt, that requires much less bandwidth than video.
Blrt recreates the way people communicate face-to-face, providing a better, more human method of working with others remotely. Once recorded, Blrts are stored in the cloud and are exchanged with others in a conversation-like fashion. A record is kept of the exchange, and new parties and media can be added at any time.
Blrt shifts time and place, allowing anyone, anywhere to participate in their own time, while maintaining conversational continuity and communication clarity by capturing hand gestures like pointing, zooming and drawing in sync with their voice. In an era where activity-based working and distributed teams are commonplace, Blrt will revolutionise the way people interact to get things done.
Blrt for Animals, however, remains a dream.
