Connecting Our prayers and thoughts go out to our employees, customers, partners, other people, and businesses that have been affected by this horrible pandemic. Last month we wrote about fighting alongside everyone for this long haul we had ahead of us during this Covid19 pandemic and that we would win this war together.  These last 30 days were a challenge for many on both the personal and professional front. Here at, we did not skip a beat.  We were born as a remote organization, so instead of us spending time getting adapted to the work from home experiences, we were able to turn our focus to others that needed help.  We helped many new customers take advantage of the free Microsoft Teams offering, we helped others move their infrastructures to Azure, and we provided to our community even more than we normally do. Our free “Learn from Home while Work from Home” webinar series taught hundreds of people new tips and tricks around Power BI, Excel, and other Office solutions. Several of our team members donated their time to provide additional content to the User Group communities as well. Connecting with others during this time is very important.  In order to stay connected, I created #CoronaVirusCheckIn moments.  Weekly, I schedule one to two 15-minute meetings with people in my network and do a Teams call with them.  We try to not talk about work, other than a quick update, but typically we are checking in about our families, new tv shows or movies we’ve watched, new dishes we have cooked or new board games we have played.  These have been incredibly rewarding personally and I strongly recommend that. In closing, please remember, we are here for you as a Partner to continue serving you the best that we can.  We will be here continued during this Pandemic and afterward. Let us know if you need help with your business solutions. We are Invested. Prepared. Accountable, even more than ever now. David Gersten Strategic Engagement Manager
