Business uncertainty has led to widespread adoption of working from home. Since most meaningful tasks in any organization require teamwork, this remote work approach has naturally led to a dramatic rise in the use of collaboration tools such as Zoom Conferencing.
In March, the daily usage of Zoom increased over 5 times. The platform makes it easy for corporate users and their clients to hop on meetings whenever needed. It is also popular with educators and students seeking to move the curriculum online.
