Covid-19 update – remote working success

While showing empathy for the community at large, Systech is more united than ever with excellent communication between our management, personnel and clients.

In these challenging times, the business continues to be lead by Stephen Rayment and Mark Woodward-Smith working from their homes in Dubai and London. Our business owner/manager structure aids quick and efficient decision making in the current rapidly changing landscape across the regions, and our pandemic response team is in constant contact.

Stephen and Mark appreciate how frustrating it is to be on lockdown, but the health of our personnel and compliance with government control measures is paramount. People can feel isolated and our senior managers are working hard to ensure they are in regular contact with their teams and everyone is well aware who to contact if they have concerns.

They have both spent many years travelling the globe and a positive arising from the lockdown is how our robust IT systems have coped and continued to facilitate communications. Planning positively for the future we now know that the use of software such as Teams, Skype and Zoom is extremely productive and they will become a key part of our business procedures going forward, removing the need for extensive and time consuming travel, with benefits for the environment too.

Systech is a strong and secure business, not exposed to share price movements or loan constraints, with a wide range of blue chip and public centre clients for whom we continue to provide excellent services and will work with to support now and into the future.

Let’s continue to work together to minimise the risks presented by COVID-19.

Stephen P Rayment & Mark Woodward-Smith
Joint Group Managing Directors
