From our Quarantine to yours, Happy Holidays. Its been a hell of a year. I think we can all say no matter what state or country you live in that we are looking forward to getting back to a more normal way of things.
We service a lot of small businesses, and we know the year has been tough for everyone, especially small businesses. A recent Yelp study suggests that between Feb and Oct 2020, 800 businesses had closed PER DAY; another UC Santa Cruz study suggests the number is even higher (1,500 PER DAY). The real numbers won’t be fully known for a while; however no matter what number you pick, the carnage is staggering.
Surviving in this climate requires steel determination. To those that were able to adapt and are still standing, our hats are off to you!
To our customers:
We are SO grateful for you. Thank you for trusting us with communicating with your customers and clients!
We at GReminders have seen our customer base shift also, much more to virtual meetings, with Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, etc… for virtual appointments and collaboration.
We have invested heavily into the platform in 2020.
