In current times of instability and uncertainty, businesses are figuring out how to proceed with this sense of a “new normal.” At OTR, we have been striving each day to support our employees and make sure that we support our community in any way we can.
We did not shut down our office but are now putting a lot of attention to creating safe and contactless engagement, minimizing human contact, restricting business travel, and cross-training team members to perform other employees’ functions to be prepared in case of absence.
Working in the IT industry, it was easy for our company to switch many processes online. Our engineering, development and design teams are now working remotely. We use a range of online instruments and products that help us stay connected with each other and with our files.
Our company has always operated with a people-first mindset. At this time, we’ve introduced a number of measures to support our employees through this crisis. We’ve switched some teams to remote work, and are increasing the flexibility of hours. In addition, our office has ramped up their cleaning schedules and added new hand sanitizing stations. We continue to offer paid sick leave and compensate our workers at the same level as before the pandemic.
We know that many companies are facing difficulties now. On our end, we try to support our long-lasting partners in every way we can. The VR solutions we deliver help adequately prepare for highly complex situations similar to the one we are going through right now and reduce human contact while achieving the same results in many spheres and industries and, therefore, help mitigate pandemic effects for many critical areas.
We value our partners and really hope to continue cooperating with them for years to come. That’s why we are looking for ways to support them. One of the steps that we can take in this direction is offering 30-day deferred payment options for all our new and long-lasting clients to go through these hard times together.
If you’re looking for ways to support us, and other businesses during this time, online reviews are a great place to start. In fact, 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. However, not all reviews are equally helpful and powerful, however; many companies in the B2B industry turn to trusted resources like Clutch and The Manifest.
Clutch is a DC-based verified B2B review platform that strives to support small and mid-sized businesses, such as ours. We recently received two five-star reviews from satisfied customers who called out our high-quality solutions and how we strive for perfection!
The Manifest is an online leader in the B2B space that provides lists of agencies that provide a variety of services, including AR & VR development! We’re happy to have the support of platforms like this, especially as we adjust to this remote environment.
Our leadership team at OTR is excited to celebrate the success of our employees, even in the face of uncertainty, and we are even more thrilled to be able to support other businesses by reviewing our partners as well. Stay safe!
