The COVID-19 crisis forced businesses to quickly shift to remote work environments. Shelter-in-place directives and the increasing number of COVID cases made work from home a necessity rather than a luxury. The sudden shift brought in multiple challenges to the business world. While some companies faced these challenges rather painlessly, some others are still struggling to catch up. A consumer-goods distributor approached Phykon as they faced difficulty in migrating to remote work environments.
