Focusing on Our Clients During COVID-19

With accounting firms in the middle of tax season, and the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic crisis spreading, firms are working to support remote workers as fast as possible.  According to Accounting Today, many large firms like BDO and Grant Thornton, immediately implemented their plans for remote workers.  Services like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Slack have seen dramatic immediate growth in working to facilitate staff and customer communication.

Netgain’s ITaaS solution, along with Microsoft Azure, has enabled our clients to quickly deliver on the need to have all their employees work from home.  By combining controls like multi-factor authentication, hosted applications, and encrypted sessions, firms have the confidence that not only is their environment protected, but their employees are as productive as in the office.

We’re in constant contact with our clients, and they’ve seamlessly implemented the work from home model with no additional technical work.  They’re continuing to provide services as normal, in a time when many firms are struggling to meet the challenge.  

As this emergency situation continues, Netgain is doing everything that it can to help provide secure systems and environments for our clients.  Over the next weeks and months, a new normal will develop where working from anywhere will be a requirement.   Please, take care of yourselves and your families, and in the future, let us help make this remote requirement an automatic one for your firm.
