We have put together this article to provide a source of resources and links available for equipment managers, Papertrail subscribers and partners to help plan and reduce the impact of coronavirus on your business.
As an equipment manager with safety as your number one priority, you need all the information at your fingertips to be able to care for and disinfect equipment properly.
