Many of us were impacted by the seemingly overnight mandate to work from home in mid-March. To say these past few months have been challenging might be the understatement of the century. Life as we knew it totally changed. IT departments have certainly earned their stripes. Most home computers and laptops can’t run AutoCAD, Revit, Sapphire, and engineering design software locally. Our ability to quickly shift to remote access to the office computer and server kept us in the game.
Microsoft Teams has become an essential part of internal collaboration, and we’re on it all the time. Zoom has been great for Staff Meetings, Updates, and Happy Hours. Going forward, we hope to continue/expand the use of Teams with our clients to improve collaboration. We hope you weathered the storm, some of us with a few extra pounds to shed. We’re grateful to be coming out of isolation and seeing people again!
