For all our VTEX Customers, Partners and Team Members,

An unprecedented health emergency has led to an unprecedented challenge for everyone.

We must thank all the healthcare professionals and first responders all over the world. These unsung heroes are putting themselves on the front lines and standing ground against this virus. From the bottom of hearts, we thank you for your endless work and constant sacrifice to save others.

As we are facing the biggest health crisis within the last century, we’re also learning that we could do more for our beloved elderly community. Families are rediscovering empathy and love under crisis and many things have been put back into perspective during this turmoil.

Our new norm of social distancing and remote work has now pushed organizations to embrace rapid digitization. This is something they may not have been prepared for, nor were our customers or partners. This is where we believe VTEX can make a difference. Our mission is to accelerate the digital commerce transformation. Now more than ever, we must be able to deliver commerce capabilities to businesses that need fast solutions to survive in this very difficult time. We are running online workshops and transforming stores into marketplaces to enable them to sell goods from stores among other digital-first capabilities. The VTEX team members are working around the clock to attend to the increased demand for this fast and compulsory digitization of enterprises around the world. The committed schedule for a go-live project now represents lives and comfort for the ones in need. Our top priority is to be supportive and creative to help our customers and partners save their businesses.

We couldn’t do this without our valued VTEX team members.  We are all committed to guide and inspire our customers that are facing the waves of this health and economic crisis. We are well prepared and highly trained to ensure our customers and partners will thrive. Here we stand. Here we fight. Together, we are stronger.

 

Sincerely,

Geraldo Thomaz and Mariano Gomide de Faria
