“How can we be of service?”
It’s a question we at Revenue Analytics are always asking ourselves.
And it’s why we were inspired to share a list of resources that is helping our own team adjust to the “new normal” of work and home life under COVID-19.
We hope you’ll find these resources (which exclude news and medical info) as helpful as we have.
If you’ve got a great resource to share, send it to us and we’ll add it!
