COVID-19 Statement

In relation to Cornavirus (COVID-19), the WHO Director-General has said "We’re not just fighting an epidemic; we’re fighting an infodemic”. There is a lot of misinformation out there, that's for sure.

Like all organisations, we continue to closely monitor developments regarding COVID-19. With current levels of concern, we have proactively taken steps to ensure the continuity of our support contracts and business operations should the situation worsen.

At String, the health, safety and experience of our employees and clients is our top priority. We wanted to reassure you that we are ready and prepared by providing an update on the actions we are taking in response to Covid-19.

In connection with guidance provided by global health authorities, we have strengthened our on-site cleanliness measures. These actions include, but are not limited to, the following efforts:

  • Increased daytime cleaning scope and frequency to sanitise all high-frequency touch-points
  • Ensuring enough stock levels of soap and soap dispensers and that our hand sanitiser dispensers remain filled
  • Regular communications plan to keep all employees and clients updated on the measures in place.

Also, in connection with guidance provided by the global health authorities, String have instituted a “work from home” policy for all employees who travel back from known effected areas and for anyone who is not permanently based in our Preston office.

These restrictions are subject to change as we closely monitor developments worldwide.

Furthermore, we have taken steps to ensure that our operations and support obligations will continue; through the employment of similar “work from home”, teleworking and other approved social distancing and travel restriction protocols.

Flexible working will continue to play a part not just in String’s life but all of our clients and we are here to help and support all our clients through this challenging time.

This training programme was designed around all things Microsoft Cloud, and we could see the benefit this would have for our team, but […]

Cloud Migration vs Digital Transformation

Cloud Migration vs Digital Transformation, what’s the difference and what do you choose for your business? Well, let’s answer a few questions to clear things up. Cloud Migration vs Digital Transformation, are they the same thing?   It seems a reasonable question, however, I would argue that the two are quite distinct.  To get us started, […]

The Benefits of The Cloud

The Benefits of The Cloud Whilst the majority (if not all) of our Blogs are about Cloud Computing; they can sometimes be a bit, well, esoteric.  So, our Head of Marketing, Abby, has asked me to put together a simple, no messing about Blog, that details the benefits of The Cloud. So, here are my […]
