However, we would like to reassure Customers that we have been working on contingency plans for this scenario for some time and that despite physical office closure asper Government’s directives, it is very much business as usual for us. Throughout this period, our staff will all be contactable from home via email, whatsapp and their mobile phones.
These temporary office closures will be reviewed regularly and necessary services will remain available remotely.
