It’s been a busy week.. and we’d like to thank all our clients for bearing with us and especially those who have taken the time to thank us personally for helping them get their staff set up to work from home. All our services running as usual and we’re feeling fortunate that we can work remotely ourselves and help others too.
Only 2 weeks ago we were talking about the possibility of remote working and business continuity and now, following government advice, working from home has become a necessity for many. During these uncertain and challenging times we are committed to ensuring we continue to give our clients the high standards of IT support that we are known for. Most of our systems and support can all be accessed remotely and if we have to be on client sites for technical reasons or delivering hardware all staff are following government guidelines regarding hygiene and distancing. We are now implementing additional support for many clients so they can follow government advice and enable their staff to work from home where possible. If you need help getting staff set up or aren’t even sure what you need please get in touch we are still here to help.
There are a number of reasons why staff sometimes need to work from home. Travel issues, family emergencies and illness have always had an impact on whether an employee is in the office and bad weather conditions and flooding seem to cause problems every year.
Now with the potential coronavirus health epidemic we are being told staff may have to work from home for extended periods of time so it’s a good time to make sure you’ve considered your options. It’s always a good idea to consider remote working as part of your business continuity plan anyway but the important thing is to be prepared and today with the right resources and technology it’s easier than ever.
There are various ways we can help you to enable staff working from home, including VPN access, remote desktop and supplying additional laptops and phones. More importantly we can help you consider the questions you need to ask to make sure your IT doesn’t let you down in the event of workplace change.
