Arlington companies provide needed community solutions during COVID-19 crisis

Arlington tech companies are known for being some of the most innovative in the nation, and even during the current pandemic, some of these companies are finding ways to pivot those business models to not only continue operations during the COVID-19 crisis but also to help their fellow Arlington businesses.

GoTab, an Arlington-based company that provides a revolutionary mobile ordering and payment platform, is taking the current situation and reaching out to local restaurants affected by the Stay at Home Executive Order. During the closures, GoTab is waiving install fees and any contract restrictions for local restaurants interested in using the platform to help with curbside pickup and delivery options. No app download is required for this platform.

Hobsons subsidiary Starfish is offering online programs and resources to help educators navigate the new distance learning efforts in classrooms across the nation. The platform also allows educators to individually connect with students in quarantine.

Additionally. Arlington-based language giant Rosetta Stone is offering a complimentary three-month membership for any students to continue their language studies while at home. As part of the program, students learn through immersion and are provided with progress data and printable reports.
