Mumbai, May 06, 2020 – Digité Infotech Pvt. Ltd. announced that all of its employees have donated 1-day of their salaries to the efforts to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 crisis in India and in the San Francisco Bay Area, where it is headquartered.
The company has contributed an equivalent amount to the Government of India’s PM-CARES Fund to support the government’s efforts to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 crisis. Apart from this, the company has also made donations to Maharashtra and Karnataka state, for helping the daily wage workers and those working relentlessly in the Emergency Services.
Making the announcement, Digité’s CEO, Mr. AV Sridhar said “The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted nations, governments, organizations and the ordinary people in an unprecedented manner. The impact on front-line first responders including healthcare professionals, police and other authorities as well as essential service providers is significant and serious. We are doing our bit to help the Indian government deal with the crisis in an effective manner.”
In the Bay Area, Digité donated money to the Community Seva charity to help the Bay Area homeless with their unique problems in these challenging times. Thanking Digité, Community Seva’s Founder, Nathan Ganeshan said “Thank you for your generous gift, specifically towards our COVID-19 outreach program. We will use the funds to provide hot and freshly cooked daily lunches and weekend dinners to the homeless population, and to purchase and distribute Solar Power Chargers to those living in homeless encampments. The unsheltered population has no means to charge their phones now with the ‘shelter in place’ rules currently in place. These chargers will help them stay safe, connected and able to reach medical emergency numbers.”
Digité provides Enterprise-class Lean/ Agile project and work management tools and solutions to help distributed teams collaborate effectively in getting their work done – and this has never been more important than now.
Elaborating further, Sridhar said “At Digité, we have made sure all our employees in all locations are working from home. We’ve quickly adjusted to it and strive to continue delivering the highest levels of performance, availability and support. Our priority remains to ensure we can help our customers continue getting their work done. All our teams have been given the resources and flexibility they need to be able to support them better. And, my team and I are available round the clock to help them whenever they require it.”
To help the community at large, especially remote teams and knowledge workers everywhere, Digité has also made their enterprise visual management product – SwiftKanban, free for everyone till June 30th.
