Recovery Plan & New Tools Announced By Salesforce

With the Ontario government’s announcement that certain businesses can begin reopening today, and all provinces starting to take steps towards adjusting restrictions on daily life, we’ve reached a pivotal moment in the COVID-19 crisis. Business leaders must consider how they can recover from the crisis and return to work with society’s health and wellbeing top of mind. 

As local and federal guidelines continue to evolve, businesses will need new ways of planning, managing workforce readiness, facilities preparedness and emergency management response. Further, as customers have become increasingly reliant on digital services to access information, purchase items and as companies have transitioned to remote work, businesses have had to re-imagine how they operate. While the road ahead is ever-changing, the one certainty is that future business preparedness and recovery lies in the power of technology. 

To support the initial response to COVID-19, Salesforce launched Salesforce Care, a suite of free solutions designed to help businesses stabilize during the initial phase of the crisis. Canadian companies like Women’s College Hospital used this technology to quickly pivot to new business demands, as did the Provincial Government of British Columbia. Now, as COVID-19 containment improves and the economy begins to restart, a more complicated recovery phase lies ahead.
