Remote collaboration during isolation

Remote collaboration during isolation

Sales are at an all-time low and marketing teams are fumbling to make sense of the unprecedented situation. SMEs and startups are probably the worst hit by the COVID-19 crisis, and the economic fallout shall persist for a while now.

“I’ve got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
