With the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation developing, we believe it's important to be transparent about how Axero is responding to the outbreak. Our philosophy is to approach this situation with transparency, empathy and urgency. Axero's top priority is the health and safety of our employees and those we serve, including customers, partners, and prospects. We care deeply about our customers and have all hands on deck to support them through this developing situation.
The information below is based on our guidelines and practices as of March 13, 2020. We will update this post to reflect any changes to our plan.
Axero has always been a strong proponent of remote work. 100% of our team has the opportunity to work remotely.
All company-related travel is suspended until further notice. We believe that limiting travel is our safest and best option for reducing the risks of infection. For personal travel, we are asking all employees who travel by airplane or cruise ship to self-quarantine for 14 days upon their return.
Axero maintains business continuity and disaster recovery plans focusing both on preventing outage through redundancy of systems and business operations. We also have rapid recovery strategies in the event of an availability or performance issue.
Whenever customer-impacting situations occur, Axero's goal is to quickly and transparently isolate and address the issue. Identified issues are published on the Axero Customer Support Community and are subsequently updated until the issue is resolved. Learn more in Axero's Security and Risk Management policy. At this time it is business as usual and we are closely monitoring our technology infrastructure.
We continue our commitment to transparency and sharing information with employees as the situation develops. Our leadership teams are using our internal communications tools (Communifire), Slack, and/or email, to update employees on the latest developments and anticipate concerns or questions they may have. We want to do everything we can to minimize panic and maximize safety.
