The coronavirus pandemic is impacting everyone and as the situation continues to affect our world, we wanted to reach out and update you on how we at Simplicit are supporting our employees and you—our customers.
Our team of 20 employees are capable of working from anywhere. We’ve taken actions to reduce the need for our employees to come into our offices; at this point in time most, if not all, are working mostly from home and able to answer the phones, provide remote support and answer emails as needed to ensure you receive the technical support needed. We’ll continue to make sure our workforce is supported as this crisis evolves.
