Once the WHO (World Health Organization) declared a pandemic alert on March 1st, 2020, no one imagined the repercussions this would give to the world.
Once announced the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, very difficult times came along, so we have been in the need to adapt ourselves too to a new reality. This not only about changing the dynamic of our daily life but also the dynamic of our way to do business. We have experienced a time of health crisis that has generated economic impacts in so many sectors globally.
Due to the pandemic, and being part of the ICT sector, we have been highly impacted, and we have had to promote the culture of working remotely from home, virtual training and education, social restrictions and other strong measures. The telecommunications companies have had to invest on the development of strong connectivity in order to ensure and provide users with network coverage and a reliable access.
Communication and digital tools have been of vital importance in these times of pandemic. Among some of the tools that have become more popular either for socializing and / or for working purposes are:
- Microsoft Teams
During this pandemic we had to “unlearn to learn”. Companies have learned to carry out their commercial activity remotely and also to adapt to do business in other ways. We were forced to go virtual, this has been one more push into the digital age.
Telecommunications, technologies and digital businesses have been allies during these difficult times of pandemic that we have been going through. Telecommunications today is one of the essential services due to its influence on economic and personal activity.
