How has Covid-19 affected your business?
April 6th, 2020
As an essential business providing necessary software IT services to businesses who continue to operate, it is our duty to those that rely on our services to continue to operate and provide support to all who need it in this difficult time.
At Astreon we’ve implemented work from home for most of our workforce. To promote the safety of those that do remain in the office, each team member is completely isolated from each other.
For those working from home, the change was difficult at first, and it took some getting used to for all staff members. Now that we’ve all settled in, productivity is up, and we continue to manage our business and support our clients and partner’s needs amidst the crisis that our world is working hard to cope with.
The most important things are supporting each other through this difficult time and focusing on health and safety of all people.
We’ve found that more than ever, companies need to rely on location based services for the safety and security of people, whether in a fixed or dynamic location, high value assets and equipment that are not being used which need to be monitored, and of course in key verticals like transportation, which is a mission critical industry right now delivering food, medical supplies and important goods to all who need them.
We continue to serve the needs of all business who lean on us.
We’d love to hear from you. How is it going with your business? We’d love for you to share some of your personal experiences as well. Now, more than ever, we need to rely on each other to get through this difficult time.
