Are you or your staff practicing social distancing and working remotely in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak? We're all doing as much as we can to stay safe, which has meant making some quick decisions and quickly transitioning employees to work-from-home arrangements.

Microsoft Teams is an incredibly powerful tool to continue collaboration and virtual face-to-face communication while your team works from the safety of their homes.

Then, identify any needs that are not being met and fill in those gaps with appropriate solutions. Get started by completing an overall inventory of all of your IT devices, software, and other equipment.
