In Part 2, Chris Enbom, CEO at AP Equipment Financing and Work Truck Direct; Andrew Cotter, EVP, CIO from Somerset Capital Group; and Katie Emmel, Chief Operating Officer at IDS discussed empathy for customers and employees, getting staff up to speed with technology and business continuity through the cloud.
