Many businesses and people are struggling as the COVID-19 pandemic has closed restaurants and bars, canceled events, and forced people to practice social-distancing. Technology on our side allows us to maintain productivity and ensure life will continue at a somewhat normal clip. We believe there are three key reasons why technology will pull us all through the COVID-19 Pandemic.
1. Remote Work Capabilities: You may have never dreamed you’d be writing up your next big report with your child sitting next to you playing their online educational game, or your pup curled up in your lap as you work on your laptop, but here we are. Many employers have sent their employees to work from home in an effort to quell the spread of COVID-19. With strong remote access or VPN, work continues without a great deal of interruption.
2. Virtual Events/Streaming: Events organizers across the country are canceling, postponing, or moving events online. Technology allows these events to continue without major hiccups. Artists taking to Facebook Live to perform, speakers moving to platforms like Zoom or YouTube, and church services across the world are offering streaming services only … revealing the tip of the iceberg when it comes to streaming technology.
3. Communication: Video chat, online messaging, email, and phone communication will keep the world connected through this difficult time. We’ll quickly see how important it is to connect with our fellow human for work, pleasure, and sanity.
It is unknown how long drastic measures stemming from COVID-19 will last, but with technology, thankfully the world will continue to progress. If you have questions on how your business can do more online or how your employees can work safely and securely from home, we’d love to chat and help you navigate these times. We’re here for you.
