With approximately 11% of Americans out of work in June of 2020 and 82% of small business owners reporting they are concerned or very concerned about the potential impact of the virus on their business, it might seem at first glance that now is not the best time to invest in new technology.

If that is where your gut is right now, it is understandable. A common reaction to challenging business climates is reduced spending, including that of investing in the tech sector. However, this view is likely to be shortsighted given the uncommon challenges of the current pandemic.
