What's  the game plan for your business?

 Strategy  is everything when it comes to sustaining your business in times of  disruption. Consider the 3 Rs – review, regroup and reinvent – as you find  new paths to profitability.
 As Canadian  businesses continue to adapt and adjust to the new business climate due to  Covid-19, there’s bound to be more than a few starts and stops. Retooling on  the fly is hard work. There is no playbook, no precedent and no way to  predict the future, so having a solid business plan—and a Plan B—is your best  ally. Consider the 3 Rs a framework to help you find the path forward.

How Are You Keeping Your Work & Life Boundaries From the Home Office?

 Companies are facing unprecedented communication challenges by having their employees suddenly thrust into working remotely. Physical, on-premises phone systems worked well when employees were all working in the office, but trying to help employees stay connected while setting boundaries between their personal and work lives is another challenge altogether. Perhaps a cloud business phone system can help. Learn more ideas here from ZOOM
