Workbench keeps Xenex engineers focused on designing germ-zapping robots, not managing file servers

Back in October, we wrote how impressed we were with the work Xenex was doing in the fight against Ebola. Two months later, Ebola is still very much in the news and Xenex has been right there with it.

Sounds like a great Workbench use case to us. We caught up with Dallas last month and asked him what Wild West Off Road is all about and how Workbench makes life a little easier.
