Data-Driven Operational Strategies in the Pandemic Era
Friday, October 09, 2020
As state economies struggle between surging cases of COVID-19 and intense pressure to reopen — albeit with varying degrees of restrictions — companies that reduced or halted operations in response to stay-at-home orders are torn between the urgent needs to both restore revenue streams and to ensure the safety of their employees and customers. Since every location has a different dynamic and risk profile, creating a return-to-work strategy is complicated, whether a company operates in five locations or 500. The solution to developing a sound, portfolio-wide strategy includes having ready access to data, analytics, and insights, including regional and community-specific risk factors. Much of this data is available free-of-charge and can be easily integrated with traditional location data and information around corporate real estate portfolios.
