COVID-19 QUARANTINE WAS A TEST!
Cloud Tools to Work Remotely, Efficiently and Safely
2020–03–13 — When I realized the COVID-19 situation is more serious than we initially thought, I made a very quick decision to move every single staff at Brixwork & HOVR to work from home. We were able to get up and running within a matter of hours, if not less than an hour. The time taken to drive over the 27” iMacs was the most significant portion of it. It was reminiscent when we managed to recover full operations in 5 hours after an overnight burglary cost us every single iMac (and other items).
“The agility at which we went to work-from-home mode was incredible.”
Luckily, as a smaller team of 8 we didn’t bottlenecks in transitioning, but another major factor that allowed the rapid transition was the utilization of cloud communication tools.
