Survive and Thrive Despite COVID-19 with Cloud Plus
Businesses today are facing wide and varied challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes taking measures to protect their staff, managing a highly distributed workforce during periods of lock-down and as staff seek to work from home generally, clients defaulting or downsizing, and supply chain disruption. With the ongoing challenges and uncertainties caused by COVID-19, many businesses are struggling to survive, let alone thrive.
While the world is hopeful that COVID-19 vaccines will help to stabilise things, given ongoing the mutation of the virus and the fact that some vaccines are more effective than others, it is safe to assume that it will be some time yet before things really settle down. Also, no doubt there will be lasting impacts on the world around us, and you could be excused for asking “what’s next?”.
Given the impact that COVID-19 has had on a global scale and the ongoing challenges that we are facing, it is important that you take appropriate steps to ensure that your business can weather the storm. Working with the right technology partners is critical and you need to ensure that your overall ICT solution will support your business effectively despite the sorts of challenges that are arising.
Here are three key reasons why Cloud Plus is a great company to partner with:
1. Offices in three great countries, including a brand new 1,000sqm office in Manila
We have offices in three counties included in The CEO Magazine’s Top 10 list of best countries to invest in or do business in for post-COVID. Australia, the Philippines, and the Czech Republic are ranked 6th, 7th, and 10th respectively in a study conducted by CEOWORLD of 80 countries according to their business and investment environments. Some of the factors considered were constitutional framework, education and research, market potential, and trade openness. This provides confidence that we have made smart choices to fuel our labour needs and as we expand internationally.
To support the growth of our team in Manila we have recently moved to a new 1,000sqm office in Mandaluyong fitted out to ensure that our team have everything they need. This includes comfortable workstations with acoustic dividers, a well-equipped gym with a shower, a fully functional kitchen with a coffee machine and fresh fruit every day, vending machines, various meeting rooms, and huddle / break areas. The second phase of the fit-out will deliver additional workstations and meeting rooms, as well as sleeping quarters to support staff working shifts or doing after-hours work.
2. We remained fully operational despite the impact of COVID-19
We are confident that we will succeed despite the difficult situation that the world is facing. Aside from having solid cash reserves, Cloud Plus has remained fully operational even with the continuing spread of COVID-19 while looking after our employees’ health and safety.
With our work-from-home policy for our teams in Europe, the Philippines, and Australia, we’re able to provide continuous and uninterrupted services to our Partners and Clients. We have also been taking appropriate safety measures if there’s a need to visit one of our datacentre locations or client sites. And we have put in place systems and processes to ensure the health and welfare of staff working out of our offices.
Of course, we have done more than just hold the line. Even during the most challenging periods of the pandemic, we were able to effectively recruit and place staff in Manila across a wide range of functions for both Cloud Plus and BPO Clients to fill gaps and fuel expansion. See the outsourcing page on our website for more information.
3. Our solutions enable businesses to survive and thrive, even in a crisis
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the importance of our Cloud Solution Framework, which enables us to deliver seamless and highly reliable solutions that can incorporate Data, Security, Hosting, Backup & Disaster Recovery, and Voice services.
Businesses have realised the importance of reliable Data Network Services as well as the peace of mind and secure remote access services made possible by our award-winning Managed Security Fabric offering.
Our best-in-class virtual hosting services powered by VMware vSphere offer the reliability and scalability you need in a crisis with the option of hosting in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane as appropriate.
Whether you host with us, in your office, in colocation, or with another cloud provider, our Backup & Disaster Recovery offerings will ensure that you can recover quickly and effectively from any challenges that arise.
And of course when you have staff working from home or on the road our Unified Collaboration and Communication options deliver the features and capabilities you need. They feature both handset and softphone clients for desktop and mobile devices that can be used in the office or remotely with zero-touch provisioning and end-to-end encryption. Our softphone clients also have collaboration features that help overcome the new challenges that arise with a highly distributed workforce.
Our performance throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has proven that Cloud Plus has established strategic, operational, and financial resilience that will enable us to survive and even thrive in the face of such significant threats.
