We Stand Together Against COVID-19

In these turbulent times surrounding COVID-19, many of the states in which Heartland Business Systems (HBS) serves clients have announced “shelter in place” or “safer at home” orders.  HBS will continue to operate as an “essential business.”  HBS is a critical part of the essential business supply chain and will continue to deliver essential products and services to other essential businesses so they can remain open.  HBS considers it our social responsibility to continue to support our clients to help ensure the health and safety of our communities.  As an essential business, we remain open for business and will continue to operate during normal business hours and beyond for the duration of this world-wide health crisis.  We take great pride in serving you and in helping your organization and our nation during this challenging time.  If your organization has any needs during this time, please reach out to us at (920) 415-5561 or inquiry@hbs.net.
