To assist with reducing cases many precautions have been taken such as social distancing, increased cleaning protocols, face covering and of course remote work. Businesses both big and small have had to make adjustments to continue their operations remotely, or onsite with certain limitations, the transition to remote work has been easier for some businesses than others. These businesses already had the right tools or level of digitization in place necessary to create a digital remote work environment, for others it was much more of a challenge. These companies had already implemented or have implemented an ERP like Odoo to transform their business. They were ahead of the game. There is a reason why ERPs are in such high demand right now.
