As the Coronavirus outbreak has now reached the UK, some of our clients have reached out to us to discover what our business contingency plan is, should quarantine recommendations and travel restrictions increase to combat the spread of the virus.
Please rest assured that in the event of restrictions PLH Medical staff have the capabilities, technology and flexibility to work from home/remotely as required. As examples, we already have remote workers in Blackpool, Basingstoke, London, Reading and York plus an a field engineering team nationwide. All of which visit the office from time to time and have worked in our Blackpool office at some point.
As a team, we embrace remote working. The systems we use – TeamViewer, Red Zebra, Vethub Cloud and Microsoft 365 apps – which all allow excellent inter-team communication, secure access to both our own and client systems, regardless of location. PLH Medical’s technical solutions enable secure flexible and agile working.
All of our data is stored in restrictive access data centres, which will not be impacted by any outbreak, only very occasional access is required to update physical hardware. No public access is granted to these secure locations.
If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
