COVID presented many challenges to business in general, but it was a big year for the phone. When physical locations shut down, often the only way to establish a personal connection with customers was through a call. First Orion was able to offer its branded call solutions to businesses looking to connect with their customers at a time when face-to-face interaction was slim.
Stalnaker, First Orion’s president, said the company has thrived by being able to adapt and evolve.
“Don’t be afraid to make mistakes,” he said. “If it’s not working, we figure it out. If there’s no solution to a problem, we’ll create one.”
