3 Ways Technology Will Help Businesses Get Through the COVID-19 Pandemic


At Hargray, our business is your business, and we are here to help keep your business running strong during these unprecedented times.


Many businesses and people are struggling as the COVID-19 pandemic closes restaurants and small businesses, cancels events, and forces people to practice social-distancing. Technology on our side allows us to maintain productivity and ensure life will continue at a somewhat new-normal clip. We believe there are three key reasons why technology will pull us all through the COVID-19 pandemic.

  1. Remote Work Capabilities: You may have never dreamed you’d be writing your next big report from your kitchen, but here we are. Many employers have sent their employees to work from home in an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19. With reliable remote access, work continues without interruption–aside from helping your kids with school assignments and the occasional “best friend” needing a walk!
  2. Virtual Events/Streaming: Event organizers across the country are canceling, postponing, or moving events online. Technology allows these events to continue without hiccups. Artists taking to Facebook Live to perform, speakers moving to platforms like Zoom or YouTube, and church services across the world streaming reveals the tip of the iceberg when it comes to streaming technology.
  3. Communication: Video chat, online messaging, email, and phone communication will keep the world connected through this challenging time. We’re quickly seeing how important it is to connect with our family, friends, and colleagues for work, pleasure, and peace of mind.


It is unknown how long measures stemming from COVID-19 will last, but with technology, thankfully, the world will continue to move forward.

Nobody understands the role technology plays better than the deeply experienced Managed IT Services team at Hargray. With everyone facing the need to work remotely and be available for video calls and meetings, we want you and your team to operate as seamlessly and securely as possible. That’s why we’re here for you with offerings such as HARGRAY SMART OFFICE. Smart Office lets you and your team connect and collaborate safely from anywhere at any time.
