Everyone is panic buying here and there, and all you hear from friends and family is “Is your company allowing you to work from home?” Companies from all sector – big and small – are affected by the novel coronavirus from Wuhan, China. The global impact is palpable; streets are almost empty. It is as if we were watching a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie.
Financial experts to date foresee the downhill impact until August 2020. For business; it is business, as usual. How do we do business when we are told to do our part and maintain social distance, though?
vOffice Philippines Inc. is a global instant office solutions provider with over 35 branches across the world and like the experts at the World Health Organization, their answer is to maintain social distance, stay clear from crowded areas, refrain from physical contact, and continue doing your business virtually as much as possible.
To do so, any business owners may simply avail of vOffice’s Virtual Office plan online or by calling them.

They screen and connect the calls directly to your mobile phone as if you were still in the office. Giving your clients an image of stability and continuity despite the crisis.

Be sure of the establishments you go to, call them to check how equipped they are before heading out.
