We’re Working Remotely

 

With a strong team and a reliable IT infrastructure, we have swiftly managed to shift to remote working since the 13th of March 2020. This measure has been primarily taken to ensure our clients’ and team members’ safety which is of utmost importance.

During this new coronavirus situation we have effectively succeeded in maintaining a connection with our clients, providing support, and enabling them to experience human contact in a way we’ve been missing out on.

The organisation is operating at full capacity and without limitations whatsoever.
