Update as of 25 March 2020:

For nearly two weeks in most parts of the world, companies across industries and geographies have been working remotely. At Syncron, we are no exception as the wellbeing of our global customers and employees is our top priority. In my original post below, I highlighted some of the policies and infrastructure we have implemented to ensure as smooth of a transition as possible into a remote-work environment.

I am proud and thankful to share that we are continuing to maintain the same level of service and support to which our customers are accustomed – the transition has been seamless. After working with and speaking to many of our customers recently, they are not only seeking ways to maintain current business operations, but are also exploring ways to become more flexible and creative in their approach to after-sales service. In the coming days and weeks, we will continue to provide the resources our customers need to drive value from their service supply chains.

The resiliency I’ve witnessed recently is nothing short of incredible, and on behalf of the Syncron team I can say that we firmly believe our industry will emerge from this time stronger than ever. As always, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager directly if you have any questions.
