I hope this finds you and yours well and in good spirits. The pace of change may feel overwhelming as the world responds to the novel coronavirus and COVID-19. We appreciate your time in reading this message and your continued faith in our ability to deliver services to you through the pandemic. Praecipio Consulting has taken measures to ensure the safety of our staff and our customers. This is mainly by restricting travel and in-person meetings. Praecipio Consulting has always operated in a decentralized and adaptive manner that is central to our business continuity plan.
As of Monday March 16th, Praecipio Consulting returned to being a 100% remote company with both Austin and Monterrey offices closed. Our distributed teams across North America are taking extra steps to ensure that all capabilities are resilient in the event that anyone falls ill. We are leveraging video conferencing, the Atlassian suite of tools, and a host of SaaS products to ensure that our team is able to collaborate effectively. In addition, we have reviewed our vendors' business continuity plans and continue to monitor them for updates. We want to assure you that we are committed to delivering high quality work through these uncertain times and beyond.
We do not anticipate any disruption in services, but we do ask for your understanding in our inability to accommodate in-person meetings at this time. In an effort to reduce illness within our team and to help flatten the curve, we are isolating and practicing social distancing following the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). When it is deemed appropriate, we will resume our in-person capabilities. In the meantime, we plan to have cameras on during our meetings, and give you the personal experience that we have found is critical to successful projects, hosting, and managed services.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. Please let us know if there is anything we can assist with; we've built a business on enabling teams to collaborate. And most important, please take care of yourselves, your loved ones, your colleagues, and your communities. We'll get through this, together.
Christian Lane, Partner and CEO
And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.
