The coronavirus crisis has had a major impact on the channel overnight - changing working patterns for partners and radically shifting customer needs.
Despite the enforced lull in face-to-face events, vendors and distributors still need to be able to connect and engage with customers.
Against this backdrop, CRN has created Channel Deskflix.
Throughout the series we will talk with vendors, distributors and partners to examine what problems their customers are facing, how they are helping and how key products and solutions are enabling businesses to keep moving forward.
Despite causing uncertainty for every business, COVID-19 has showcased the enormous power of the technology firms in our market sell and support. The crisis will create challenges, but also opportunities in areas such as remote working and digital transformation as end users rethink their whole relationship with technology.
Channel Deskflix will zone in on these opportunities and explore how the channel can help keep their customers up and running throughout this difficult period.
