Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by COVID-19.  All our lives have changed drastically in the last few months and, no doubt, will continue to be affected in the coming months ahead. 

With a remote workforce, Ostendio has been working diligently with our customers to ensure continuity of service.  As a company who regularly offers remote work options to its employees it has been a smooth transition for our employees to work remotely full-time. However, we understand that this is not the case for all organizations.
