The Covid-19 pandemic is spreading at breakneck speed and it’s impacting every aspect of our daily lives, including the way we work. Many companies have instructed their employees to work from home in an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19, and this new way of working looks set to become an integral part of the way we work long after the dust has settled. Working from home (WFH) or telecommuting is already becoming common parlance.
Technological capabilities and ubiquitous internet access have already paved the way for a new global workforce that stays connected, enabling people to work from anywhere. As an IT service provider, we are committed to providing IT solutions that can help our customers to work remotely without sacrificing collaboration, productivity or security. With that in mind, we would like to offer Office 365 E1 and Microsoft 365 Business Basic* for free for a 6 month period with annual commitment.
