Beezwax News: Reflect, Regroup, Transform

As we send this, we know many still grapple with the challenge of COVID, while others sigh some relief. Hopefully, we are coming through this challenge, collectively, with increased mutual empathy. And we take stock of the resilience and ingenuity that carries us forward.

Green clover field and birds as sun rises

At Beezwax, we have met the challenge resourcefully, deepening our skill as a distributed workforce, and empower our clients to do so. We grew, with many new positions now open. We built web, Tableau, and FileMaker systems to help our clients maintain momentum and position themselves for the positive upswing ahead. And we are wanting to stay in touch. On that note, you can reach us any time you need — right here.

Or just reply to this email if you'd like to discuss working with us.

For some organizations, the impact of COVID was critical, requiring real-time delivery of front-line solutions, and an accelerated path to digital transformation.
