As a software company, neither our staffing nor supply chain has been impacted in any way. We have enforced a preemptive corporate work-from-home policy to enable everyone to comply with governmental guidelines in each region, as appropriate. Non-essential travel has been restricted, and all in-person business meetings, consulting engagements and training workshops have been moved to online platforms. Phones have been rerouted so all staff, in particular Application Support service representatives, are available on the regular number customers are accustomed to using to reach them. We do not anticipate any further impact to our organization in this regard. Read about our Accolade Disruption Response Toolkit here. Questions? Click here.
