Agility Test: Pivoting During the COVID-19 Crisis
We are all navigating uncharted waters at the moment — but the Dev IQ team has been encouraged to both learn from and help as our clients pivot their businesses during these strange times.
How Dev IQ’s Clients are Making an Impact
- Physical distancing does not have to mean social distancing:
One of our clients is taking an existing product, created entirely for the purpose of bringing groups of people together to meet and exchange ideas, and transforming it to be able to provide the same opportunities for connection and synergy — digitally!
- Filling in the gaps:
Another Dev IQ client has transitioned part of their advanced manufacturing operation to begin building parts for ventilators. This will help to close an essential gap for healthcare providers, avoid systemic overwhelm, and save lives.
- A brave new world:
A client building highly specialized healthcare tools for the pharmacogenomics world has made a quick pivot to be able to provide much needed rapid testing for suspected Coronavirus patients.
Through mobilization of CQuentia’s integrated resources including our molecular laboratory and new COVID-19 test, we believe we can offer value by providing reliable results to hospital and clinic customers in as little 1 to 3 days.Alan Meeker
- Knowledge is power:
While much is still unknown about this virus and its full impact on our lives, Caduceus International Publishing is publishing free e-learning resources on COVID-19 to provide as much information as possible to their students and the general public —including a 3D view of the SARS-COV-2 virus.
The Dev IQ Team
Dev IQ is committed to creating solutions that improve quality of life. We are driven by our values to make the world a better place while continuously innovating and improving. This is a challenging time, yet it is also an excellent opportunity for growth and learning.
- We have moved from a flexible, hybrid onsite-remote structure to entirely remote. Our toolkit was already in place, with platforms like Zoom, Slack, shared Google Drives, and more — allowing us to stay connected to team members and our customers.
- We’ve joined the Innovation Response Team’s group of Colorado Citizen Software Engineers to assist the State of Colorado during this time of crisis.
- The wife of our COO is making masks and head caps for nurses and other friends in the healthcare space; our Head of Recruitment and HR Manager is helping raise money to provide meals to healthcare workers; and more!
We are all in this together, and now more than ever is the time to consider what kind of positive impact you can make.
