New York — March 13, 2020 — CRM company Pipedrive is closing all of its offices around the world on Monday to slow down the spread of COVID-19 and cancel business trips and events that require physical presence. All of the company's nearly 640 employees continue to work remotely.
Timo Rein, CEO and co-founder of Pipedrive, said that Pipedrive decided to minimize the work-related social contact of its employees to protect them and their families. At the same time, it is important for the company to adapt its work processes so that they would be less dependent on the constraints of the environment and to contribute to slowing down the global spread of the virus. “We want our customers to continue to receive the best products and services in difficult times, and we want to help reduce the spread of the virus. We hope that the situation will return to normal in the near future.”
Although moving an entire business to home offices will require some changes in work organization and processes, Rein says that it is unlikely to have a significant impact on the company, as most things can be done at Pipedrive without going to the office. "Employees are used to doing their jobs anyway via computer and video calls, because colleagues and customers are located all over the world. Nothing will change for the company's over 90,000 customers.” Pipedrive helps employees with the means to continue work at home smoothly.
