Communication Platforms for Business in the New Normal

Communication Platforms for Business in the New Normal

The COVID pandemic was a sobering reminder for many that preparedness should never take shortcuts. The effects on “business as usual” were devastating, with travel restrictions and office closures causing significant problems in communication throughout the country. Yet, these challenges also gave birth to new opportunities.

The recent report by cybersecurity firm FireEye showed that 66% of businesses have admitted they felt the pandemic exposed weaknesses in their digital strategy.

The communication strategy for your business is an essential tool in helping you serve the needs of both current and future customers. With economic recovery taking hold across many regions, it’s more important than ever to have a well-researched plan that can withstand any disruption on par with what happened during The Great Recession – when businesses were left without employees or infrastructure due mainly because they didn’t know how best protect themselves from risk factors like this happening again.
