We’re All in This Together
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. We continue to follow updates on the virus, and encourage people to adhere to the recommendations coming from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is evolving daily, and like many companies, we at Freeit Data Solutions are focused on our response to help mitigate risks and do our part to prevent the spread of this virus. Customer Focus and Community are core values at Freeit. Over the years, we have developed and refined our telecommuting, contingency, and crisis management plans to ensure we can always support our customers’ needs.
In 2019, we implemented Microsoft Teams as our go-to teleconferencing tool. Over the last several years we have taken a leadership position in promoting work from home programs and virtual teams for our sales, operational, and technical teams. As a result of those early efforts, our systems are in place to ensure optimal customer response times for any needs.
For cautionary reasons, Freeit team members will be working remotely from March 13th until further notice. All essential functions will continue; however, our physical office downtown on E. 6th and Brushy St. will be closed.
In addition, all Freeit employees have been briefed on best-practice health measures as recommended by the World Health Organization and public resources in the areas where we work. Freeit employees will use virtual meetings and virtual whiteboard sessions with their customers and partners in lieu of travel to customer sites until further notice. Onsite support and field functions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and will be highly contingent on the customer’s direction, as well as state and local guidelines.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and modify our actions as necessary to protect our customers, our people, and the communities where we work. Thank you for your commitment and trust in Freeit.
President & CEO, Freeit Data Solutions
