COVID-19 pandemic response

  • We are monitoring Public Health guidance and notifications from relevant Governments and the World Health Organisation and aligning with their policies and advice.
  • On the advice of the government all of our people are working from home. Our offices are now closed to all but those who require critical access.
  • Through information sharing we are doing our part to protect our team and client businesses from the COVID-19 pandemic

Looking after our people

  • Our offices are now closed except for critical access but our business of Supply Chain Planning service delivery continues to operate successfully.
  • We have fully moved to a remote delivery model utilising the best tools to ensure a seamless delivery approach for customer projects, support and advisory services.
  • All of our team are fully equipped to work from home with video conferencing facilities
  • All business related travel has been suspended until further notice.
  • We issue regular updates consistent with the World Health Organisation and the health authorities of the territories we operate in with guidance of how to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • Our aim is to protect the health and safety of our people.

Supporting our clients

  • Remote working is a practice we were used to, and experienced in, due to the nature of our business.
  • Our teams are fully equipped with state of the art working tools, including laptops, software, accessories and network connectivity to work productively.
  • Our IT systems are cloud enabled. This gives us and customers access remotely to all documents, procedures and systems to deliver the best service.
  • Beyond the standard conferencing and messaging tools we have remote delivery practices to deliver presentations, workshops and all project phases from one to one engagements to project delivery at scale.
  • Our data security policies remain the same, so our customers are assured of the same levels of confidentiality and data security.
  • Recognising the pressures on our client’s teams, for each engagement we address appropriate methods to drive engagement so the project teams can balance COVID-19 business operations with the appropriate level of commitment to progress business critical projects
  • We have developed resource plans for our projects in case any members of our team are unable to work.
