What the boss says – chairman Ian Fishwick

“We are convinced that we are well-positioned to survive the economic challenges of the Coronavirus.

“This crisis has revealed the critical nature of communications, technology and the reliance on high performance and reliable networks.  In the near term (post [coronavirus]) we hope to show that our IT and unified communications managed services are critical to the survival of any organisation and need to be up-to-date and performant.

“We doubt that the world of work will return completely to ‘as it was before’, indeed we anticipate a ‘new normal’ where remote working is more prevalent – increasing the dependence on effective, unified communication, highly resilient networks and cloud technology.   This is what we do, it’s our mission “uniting technology, inspiring people”.  In conclusion, we expect to be well placed to address the changed demands that arise.”
