On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) assessed COVID-19 as a pandemic, leading to a rapid increase in issued travel bans and cancelled events. The spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus has impacted supply chains and people’s ability to work at the office, putting enormous pressure on collaboration and communication software and the businesses that help install and maintain them.
