Employee well-being was our utmost priority. We confirmed that every employee was able to telecommute and had the capabilities, including secure access and tools to perform their tasks remotely without compromising productivity and data privacyEd Sable – President
We had robust systems in place, like the SSL VPN to On-prem, effective collaboration tools like MS Teams, MS One Drive, etc. to help virtualize communications.
Moving to work from home raised a few concerns, especially for the junior employees and trainees. We implemented a daily routine of 3 stand-up meetings within each team. Multiple communication channels were set up using MS Teams to ensure smooth functioning of the projects and encouraged team members to contact one another for help.
Within a week of inception of work from home practice, all teams were functioning smoothly, and we are proud to say none of our delivery dates were missed. In fact, we saw an increase in productivity, and we even secured appreciation emails from several clients.G.N. Shah – CTO
