A Message From Our President
To Our Valued Godlan Customers and Partners:
During this time of planning related to the spread of COVID-19, we want to let you know what we are doing to maximize the safety of our clients and employees while minimizing service disruptions. The CDC is recommending businesses consider how they can decrease the spread of this illness in the workplace by identifying and communicating the following objectives:
- Reducing transmission among staff
- Protecting people who are at higher risk of health complications
- Maintaining business operations
- Minimizing adverse effects for other entities
Godlan is taking steps to address the above objectives. In response to the current unprecedented situation, Godlan initiated several proactive mitigation programs for its employees and teams critical to delivering services, with a goal of keeping all of our Customers’ projects on schedule and ensuring a successful result. Our workforce is nationwide, flexible, and adept at collaboration from any location. We have also scaled up the necessary technologies to support remote services and programming needs of our clients around the globe. Our consultants may be driving vs flying when possible, as well as conducting virtual training sessions in support of ensuring suggested social distances measures. We do not expect any negative impact to our ability to deliver services for your projects.
Additionally, for clients implementing any type of telecommute model, we have solutions to assist with remote access needs, backup and disaster recovery, cloud hosting and business continuity solutions. We are available to connect with all clients who are interested in revisiting their long-term strategies for remote access and business continuity as we move through the emergency response.
Please continue to reach out if we can help in anyway. Our goal is to be as helpful and responsive to our client community as much as possible during this challenging time. We thank you for your continued partnership and are here if you have any questions or concerns.

COVID-19 Forces Millions to Work from Home: Manage and Support Employees Remotely – An Effective How-To-Guide for Manufacturers
With the world reeling from the COVID-19 Pandemic, many businesses and individuals are left struggling to find a new sense of normalcy. Regulations and mandates from local and national government have thrust many businesses into having all non-essential employees work from home, with little to no warning or time for planning. So, how do we cope? How do we survive? Better yet, how do we thrive?
Godlan knows that in today’s highly connected IT world, prolonged downtime can be a manufacturing company’s biggest nightmare. Whether the downtime results from a natural disaster, or even human error, the impact of an outage can ripple throughout every aspect of your business. This ripple effect can threaten operations, resulting in accruing high costs, creating negative customer experiences – and even putting the very reputation of your business at stake.
Working from home is new to many, and it can be overwhelming! Godlan employees have been successfully working remotely for years. We wanted to share our best strategies for working securely. There is an added benefit of learning to implement these steps for work, as they will also help you maintain a cybersecure home.
