Professional services firms also saw the growing importance of technology to their businesses. Having to deliver uninterrupted quality services despite the strict mobility restrictions has caused firms to embrace and maximize the use of technology. From conducting meetings both internally and with client, to sharing of business files, firms have modified their business processes to be adaptive to the evolving business requirements.
