April 20, 2020: CEO Update on CDP's Response to COVID-19

20 Apr
It’s hard to believe it has been over 5 weeks now since we began our company response to the Covid-19 pandemic. I can honestly say I did not believe we would still be practicing this level of social distancing at this point.And I certainly did not fathom the impact it would have on our economy and our lives. While our world has changed drastically, I hope you, like me, find some comfort that our work routine remains mostly unchanged.   Sure, we’ve closed our facilities in Romeoville and Frankfort to only essential personnel. And we’ve stopped traveling to conferences and to client sites. But most of our work continues unabated. We have development and testing that remain on track. We have users seeking our help and advice. We have systems to operate and monitor. We have proposals due. And we are doing all of these with our usual high level of enthusiasm, skill and knowledge.
I am proud of your dedication to this company and our customers. Thank you for your endurance and staying firm in your work ethic. I can see the glimmer of a return to normalcy in the not too distant future.
Hoping you and your families and friends stay healthy.
