Mayur Pitamber, Solutions Product Marketing Manager commented, "We’re already starting to see remote technologies take centre stage in the wake of the crisis – at 8x8, we’ve seen a tenfold increase in video traffic, and this only looks set to rise as businesses increasingly ask employees to work-from-home. Remote working has been on the rise generally over the past few months, and enforced work-from-home is certainly speeding up the adoption of the tools and technology required to do this effectively. With widespread disruption set to continue, a solid business continuity plan will be vital. The definition of ‘business as usual’ is rapidly changing – no longer can businesses expect their employees to work the traditional 9-5 in the office. The coronavirus has accelerated this shift to a widely-adopted agile working policy as businesses recognise the power of working from anywhere, at any time and on any device."
