On this edition of Late Night Health, former tech reporter Steve Van Dinter and Mark Alyn look at one of the biggest challenges small businesses face in light of the pandemic and despite the economic slowdown. The workforce, in general, is moving toward working from home, and Steve explains how this has impacted small businesses.
Since the start of the pandemic, more than two-thirds of small businesses (67%) have tried to leverage technology, whether launching an e-commerce site or upgrading point-of-sale (POS) technology, to keep their businesses on track. Now, as the economy opens back up, there’s a program to help. Steve and Mark discuss what can people expect with Verizon’s “Small Business Days” program and how small businesses should upgrade their technology.
