With the circuit breaker (CB) announced by PM Lee in place, remote working is now in full swing for the majority of Singaporeans. This may pose numerous and immediate challenges to Singaporean professionals with the new arrangements.

In order to support business continuity, technology leader Adobe is offering free access to some of its platform and services. These software that are made available include technology that supports video conferencing, virtual meetings and events, as well as other remote business services that can be deployed outside of the traditional office environment to make work from home smoother and more efficient for everyone.

COVID-19 is changing everything about life and work as we know it. At Adobe we’re focused on how to best protect and support our families, employees, customers and communities in the face of this unfolding crisis. We also recognize the critical role our technology plays in creative pursuits and business success. Creativity, document productivity, and digital businesses are too fundamental to Singapore’s society and economy to be curtailed because we are working remotely or unable to travel. As such, coming together as an ICT sector to help local businesses navigate these unprecedented challenges is essential.
