Since our beginning, LogMeIn has created tools that allow people to work from anywhere. And we believe in the next few years, environmental, social and economic factors – along with advancements in technologies such as 5G – will likely drive more and more companies to embrace “the virtual workplace.”
Regrettably, the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to cause individuals and companies around the world to question how best to conduct their business during this outbreak. These factors have also put inevitable strain on critical service providers like local and regional municipalities, hospitals, educational institutions and non-profit organizations as they ready themselves to deal with further outbreaks and disruptions.
At LogMeIn, we’ve already seen many of these trends play out in Asia, where usage of some of our collaboration products has more than doubled in recent weeks, and we’re starting to see significant spikes in traffic in other regions of the world as Coronavirus awareness and concerns grow.
We feel LogMeIn is in a unique position to help our customers, their employees and our communities during this time. As a result, we are making it a top priority to do all that we can to help our customers focus on the health of their employees and their business, while also helping the critical service providers in our communities who are on the front lines. Beginning immediately, we will be offering our critical front-line service providers with free, organization-wide use of many LogMeIn products for 3 months.

Expertise and Best Practices for Embracing Remote Work
We have also started a resource center with tips and best practices on how to master the shift to remote working for employees, managers and IT teams. For example, we have an article on Tips For First-Time Remote Workers along with a guide to Understanding The Challenges of a Fully Remote Workforce as well as other content already available on this resource center. We will be continuing to update this page and our social channels with educational materials from both LogMeIn staff and third party experts in the coming days and weeks. You can learn more by visiting our remote work resource center.
If you are a LogMeIn customer looking to help protect your employees and rapidly expand your remote work policies, please contact us. We are committed to supporting you the best way we know how.
