Demand for SUMO Scheduler Surges Amid the Coronavirus Outbreak

ATLANTA (March 11, 2020) — Appointment Scheduling software company, SUMO Scheduler, is seeing a huge spike in demand in 2020, amid corporate concerns about the spread of coronavirus. Similarly, demand for video conferencing and collaboration tools from Microsoft, Google, and Zoom is skyrocketing and expected to increase more as the number of cases rise.

The increase in customer demand demonstrates one organization flourishing while others are seeing a downturn on account of the worldwide outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. Recently, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authorities proposed that, given the opportunity of the coronavirus being announced a pandemic in the nation, individuals working for organizations can use tools like SUMO Scheduler to book virtual meetings over voice or video conferences as opposed to meeting face to face.

In February so far, 77 public company transcripts mention “work from home” or “working from home,” according to financial data platform Sentieo. That’s up from only four mentions of the phrase around the same time a year ago. The vast majority of those documents also mention coronavirus.

SUMO Scheduler’s 10-year partner, Salesforce.com even announced this week, “Along with our employees in Washington State, we are strongly encouraging all employees across California to work remotely for the month of March.” Further, Alibaba CEO Daniel Zhang told investors on a recent earnings call, “the crisis is a very, very big challenge to the society,” but it also gives people a “chance to try a new way of living and new way of work.”

SUMO CEO, Jason North states, “It’s critical to our customers’ success that they are able to keep utilization up as workers transition to work-from-home and this is exactly the strength of our software. Our appointment scheduling automation software adds up to 75% more appointments to our users calendars and does a fantastic job facilitating remote meetings.”

SUMO’s VP of Product Architecture, Nick Zenko adds, “As a heavily customer-focused organization, SUMO Scheduler is even taking it a step further to work closely with key customers and ensure additional priority is put on any product enhancements that may further support remote workers.”

SUMO is currently running promotions to help prospective customers during these uncertain times and encourages interested organizations to contact us to use SUMO to schedule a virtual meeting with our product experts and learn more”.
