Dear Valued Partners,
As the Covid-19 pandemic begins to impact on our Caribbean Region, we at Red Advertising & Marketing wish to update you on the steps we will be taking in order to mitigate the effect the virus will have on our operations.
Uppermost in our thoughts and plans is the continued health and safety of our Staff, Clients and Suppliers. This is, and will continue to be, our highest priority.
Hence, we are proactively activating aspects of our disaster preparedness plan in order to continue to serve our clients best during these unprecedented times.
This involves, among other things, moving all of our staff to remote working from their homes. This we judge to be the safest scenario which will help limit the possibility of spread of the virus through our employees. All staff will be fully IT enabled in both equipment and secure VPN access to our servers as well as internet based cloud access.
Hence, beginning Monday 23 March, we are closing our offices and will begin working remotely from home. We will of course still be available to you on email and our mobile numbers.
While delivery of service may initially be slightly delayed, internally we have been using tools such as SLACK, ZOOM and DROPBOX daily to work on briefs, communicate and share files internally and with our clients and suppliers. This experience has served to prepare us for remote working and we believe that we are well equipped for this situation and will be able to continue servicing you as before.
We are also moving to video and teleconferencing as an alternative to physical meetings, again to limit the possibility of transmission of the virus. We have also instituted an overseas business travel ban for our staff.
Finally, regarding invoicing and payments we are moving towards online payment systems wherever possible. Again, to avoid the need for physical delivery.
If you have any queries, please feel free to give us a call and we will continue to update you on further changes as they happen.
We hope that you will successfully ride out this pandemic and we look forward to returning to business as normal in the future.
Please continue to take care of yourself and your family.
