Coronavirus – What we’re doing to prepare
Given the current status of the Coronavirus pandemic, we would like to share some information on the measures we have put in place this week to ensure the long term reliability of Alliot as a distributor. We feel that our key function is to keep our warehouse operating, receiving stock and shipping out our customer orders, we have therefore taken the decision to physically isolate our warehouse operation team from the rest of the business and have enforced a remote working policy for all Alliot employees who are able to perform their roles outside of the office.
Our thinking is that the majority of our staff are trained to be able to work in the warehouse, should one of our existing warehouse team catch COVID-19 we may be forced to send the whole team home. In this instance, we would deep clean the area immediately and rotate our home working staff to cover these roles and maintain operation.
We would like to reassure our partners that there are no current stock issues and no current personnel issues. We are taking this bold and early step to mitigate the future risk to our staff, our business and our customers.
We maintain focused on providing the very best services and fast delivery times to support you and your business. The intentions of these measures are to:
- Protect our employees from being put at risk of catching COVID-19
- Provide continuity to ALL of our operations, protecting our customers from supply issues
- To continue to provide you with an outstanding level of service
Like everyone else, we are currently in unchartered territory, but as part of ProVu holdings, we are well accustomed to utilising the technologies available and are in a strong positionto adapt to this work methodology. Our move to send everyone home to work has been in place for two days and has gone extremely well with no disruption to our operations.
We will keep you updated with further changes as and when we have more information.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Alliot Team.
