2020 Foresight

RF Solutions

Posted on November 24, 2020

I want to think that when we started our company in 2016, we were anticipating events like a global pandemic because that would make us an incredibly visionary group of people. However, it wasn’t the fear of contracting a virus that motivated us to create an entirely mobile company. It had more to do with the fact that we anticipated that our employees would need to be mobile and able to communicate with clients and colleagues from our multiple offices. As a team of engineers, we are always looking for creative solutions, especially when it comes to technology. The tools that we put in place to make work an activity, not a location, allowed for a seamless transition when construction halted in New York, and we no longer worked out of our office spaces.
