NCSS Plans Out Everything
From re-opening your agency to putting your IT solutions in action, NCSS carefully plans out every step to ensure success. NCSS and their careful planning are what defines them. The plans and framework they construct keep you informed of each procedure and don’t leave you dark.
A great example of this is the framework they constructed for agencies that want to open up safely during the pandemic. NCSS carefully creates three phases of re-opening that prioritizes health, safety, and efficiency above all else!
The first phase revolves around the resumption of low-risk activities gradually. Anything that requires little to no contact that you can do safely will be slowly re-implemented.
The second phase of the framework for the resumption of activities focuses on a safe transition. Re-implementing a majority of economic and social activities gradually under a set number of regulations. The continuation of said activities can happen over a few sub-phases based on your agency and its current capabilities.
The third phase is the resumption of most, if not all, activities when the pandemic finally subsides and vaccines start rolling around. This plan is only one of many which will assist your company in the future!

Things such as making senior or people with disability web pages, finding new uses for space in the office, and optimizing your mobile site can come a long way. Making everyone feel comfortable and making work efficient should be the goal of SSAs when they go digital.
Going digital is no easy task. It requires effort and loads of preparation to pull it off properly, and even then, some things might still go wrong.
