Woman working on a project

While COVID-19 is having a dramatic impact on our lives, businesses, and communities, there are some actions you can take to help maintain day-to-day operations with as few disruptions as possible. Most of them, naturally, are centered around digital solutions.

Even in the current remote-working environment, there’s a way to avoid growing project backlogs.

For instance, do you need to share files with your team, residents, or contractors? File-sharing services like Box, Dropbox, and OneDrive allow you to exchange files by using a shared network drive. You can email links and set alerts to keep track of activity.

Also, consider shifting your permitting, inspection, plan review, and code compliance processes. Are there inputs (forms) or outputs (reports) that can be processed electronically to keep your processes moving? Consult with your internal IT expert to address any privacy and licensing concerns.
