Times are not normal just now and I never expected to be writing a blog post about what my business is not doing!
Practical day to day and what the business is doing!
With restrictions on movement, and due to the nature of most of our works being Lighting Control, we are currently operating a very restricted service.
All of our on-site works for non-essential sites/projects have stopped although we continue to provide some remote support to customers.
We have a small number of projects in the development phase which the relevant team-members continue to work on from home.
The AV industry and Software industry more widely
The AV industry, as part of the larger communication sector, is classed as an essential sector and we have seen in the mainstream media examples of AV at work as part of the Covid crisis response. Supporting the daily briefings, projects to add virtual support to government committees and indeed the main parliament chambers in Westminster and Holyrood and projects helping healthcare professionals collaborate with their peers and offer their services remotely to patients.
In the software industry there are many impressive projects being undertaken at the moment from amateur data presentation and analysis of the Covid data (https://www.travellingtabby.com/scotland-coronavirus-tracker/)
to the efforts of the software businesses supporting the HMRC with the Furlough scheme.
I’m equally proud of the work of our sector in taking the responsible and difficult decisions to do nothing and stepping up to deliver when required.
Stay Well, Stay Safe!
