Media Release: Align Announces Free Access to Huddle Software During COVID-19 Disruption
Align announces free access to huddle software to help SMBs manage remote teams during COVID-19 disruption.
NEW ORLEANS – During the economic tumult caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, New Orleans based Align Technologies is making their Huddle Tools available for free to any SMB looking to improve organizational communication and manage remote employees during this time. At this time of unprecedented disruption, consistent team communication is more critical than ever.
Align’s Huddle Tools manage team member updates and associated tasks to create focus and to drive accountability. Throughout this disruption, these tools are available for free for organizations looking to improve communication and increase productivity. The Align Huddle Tools include a portal for a written record of huddle content and task performance, which serves especially well for virtual meetings or huddles when some employees are unable to attend. “It’s all about productivity. Companies thrust into remote management need tools to make it easier to communicate efficiently, manage workflows and provide transparency into daily work. We hope this offer aids in the response efforts for businesses as they work to weather these economic challenges,” said Doug Walner, CEO of Align.
The recurring daily or weekly meeting (Huddle) presents an opportunity to share updates, discuss progress or obstacles, and get the team on the same page. Similar to the daily scrum meetings used in software development, Huddles have been used successfully by organizations of all sizes to communicate and react quickly to new information efficiently. Businesses looking to respond effectively to changing market conditions will benefit significantly from implementing regular huddles now.
