Our team is working on the front line with healthcare providers whose role is vital in keeping the public safe. For the safety of our clients, staff and the general public we are keeping our engineers that have worked in these dangerous conditions isolated for at least 14 days before visiting other client sites or our office. The field engineers servicing our less at-risk clients are also provided personal protective gear PPE that get changed out when going from one location to another. They are also kept isolated from other employees plus all of our field technicians are having their temperature taken daily and checked for any signs of infection. While our help desk staffs have been instructed to work from home but continue to provide vital remote support over the phone and via screen sharing sessions. Our heart goes out to anyone and their families working to fight this disease. We continue to pledge our support in any way we can and ask that you pray for everyone who has been affected by these unprecedented times.
