What’s It About?
JoTo PR Disruptors client Mike McLaughlin, chief information officer and vice president of professional services at Technologent was featured in an article on TechRepublic titled, 5 things SMB IT departments should do to survive the impact of COVID-19.
Small companies face an extra set of challenges now that remote work is the norm for most employees due to the coronavirus outbreak. Most large corporations have the basic structure in place for telecommuting, but that is not always the case for small- and medium-sized businesses. These companies have to establish a technical infrastructure and keep employees connected all while bad actors are looking to take advantage of these transitions.
SMBs must take time to develop a plan to sustain critical infrastructure during times of crisis. This could include disaster recovery as a service for companies that can’t afford infrastructure redundancy.
McLaughlin said Technologent’s customers are also looking for help to handle the increased demand on internal IT teams for emergency operations, including reporting and communication. He recommends using web-based service portals to support these business needs:
- Exposure management to respond to suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 among employees
- Emergency outreach for communicating with the workforce to share updates and status reports
- Emergency response operations to provide a centralized system for requesting, managing, and tracking resources
