All too often, price is the defining factor in our industry without considering the opportunity cost of lesser solutions. What does this mean to you and why should you care?
Eight plus weeks ago you went remote, your ability to Work From Home (WFH) was put in place when you initially hired us, your business processes and procedures have not had to be augmented to work from home, your office locations have been in stasis waiting for your return.
