As we are all coping with the new realities the COVID19 pandemic has created we also must start to look towards the future. While we are certainly going to enter a recession, the depth and length of such a downturn to our economy is unknown. What is known is that as we come out of the worst days of this pandemic we face some strong headwinds in our economy. With this in mind companies are already starting to focus on ways to cut costs and become more efficient in their operations. One area where most companies will look first is back-office operations.
