As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic continues to impact the lives of people around the world, Avaya Holdings Corp. is helping businesses, educational institutions, healthcare providers, governments and other organizations quickly adapt to a remote workforce and enable collaboration and communications to help keep people connected, productive and safe.
