With thousands of businesses closing, how did COVID-19 affected the print and IT industries, and how were RDS Team able to surpass these difficulties? 

Gustavo personally experienced the hardships brought by COVID-19 as one of his children were infected. He was a 34-year old nurse, and given the nature of his job, he is always at risk of getting infected. His son had to spend more than a week at the hospital. Besides this, Gustavo’s brother residing in Argentina was also infected. 

Jumping on the business side, Gustavo had a clear understanding of the impact of the pandemic. This is why they always talk and reach out to customers. Having experienced the implications of the virus first-hand, they offered services that are easy to customize. In this way, customers can upsize or downgrade their subscriptions. 

Every case is unique, and it begins with communication. What we ask is, call us, tell us your situation is, let’s come up with a flexible plan, that works for the both of us…” Gustavo said. For him, it is always about relationships and how you build connections with people.
