As the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve, it is important that physical distancing doesn't mean disconnection from the people you trust. Following on from our update in January 2020 on the roll out of our cloud based video and voice conferencing system Microsoft Teams, our digital strategy has placed us in a strong position to keep us all connected.

Using the latest technology from Microsoft, our entire team are fully equipped to:
  • Interact one on one with video conference calls.
  • Hold video conference meetings with multiple participants at the same time as if we were all in the boardroom together.
  • Share screens and guide you through those complex financial reports or help you extract those statements we have asked you for and you can't figure out where to find them.
  • Answer and transfer phone calls from anywhere in the world (but most likely from our homes at this point!) as if we are all in the office together.
