Coronavirus and Remote Work: How to Maintain Business as Usual - Comment

Description: With the Coronavirus forcing many employees to work from home, how is your company handling communication amongst your team?

Unfortunately email isn’t suited to providing timely information in a situation that is changing from moment to moment.

Email open rates are 23% and dropping, and many don’t get opened for several days. Simply put, you can’t rely on email to effectively reach your audience -- let alone engage with them time and time again.

Text messaging, on the other hand? It has a 98% open rate and is read within minutes.

That’s why many Engage by Cell clients have drastically increased their use of text messaging for internal communication.
