Our Story

digitizing the worker's day

The year is 2003. Camera phones just made their debut, and the rise of mobilization was rapidly growing. It was also the year the founders of Librestream identified a common vision that still guides the company today. A vision to empower workers with technologies that help them rapidly diagnose, inspect, and maintain assets anywhere in the world.
This vision came out of the team’s deep roots in manufacturing where they witnessed the high costs and delays caused by inefficient communications. Often, teams waited a day for specialists to arrive onsite to see the issue resolved within 15 minutes. There had to be a better, more efficient way.
Out of their experience came the Onsight Mobile Collaborative Platform. Onsight is built for workers to collaborate virtually and access content from the world’s toughest environments and for the most demanding enterprises. Installed globally, Onsight delivers measurable business outcomes including increased aircraft availability, accelerated product delivery, and faster issue resolution. Librestream continuously innovates to digitize the worker’s day.
