On 23 March, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that effective 26 March, the country will be on lockdown for 21 days.

This was done to reduce the spread of COVID-19 with 554 reported cases. While these measures are necessary to prevent a nationwide disaster, there will be many casualties along the way.

But fear not! GTconsult has anticipated this and has implemented a comprehensive COVID-19 strategy which will not leave you stranded in your time of need.

  1. We are all working from home and all A Team services will still be 100% available. Our A Team is made up of highly skilled individuals who are ready to enable productivity in your business during this time.
  2. In addition, we can assist any person who needs help setting up Microsoft Teams and Microsoft SharePoint remotely via our support desk. COVID-19 will change the face of business. Remote working will increase as will the number of companies who are geared towards the gig-economy. We will gladly assist you throughout this process.
  3. All meetings can take place on Microsoft Teams as discussed in our business continuity plan found here. Virtual meetings will become the buzz word of 2020. Just remember to dress appropriately from the waist up…unless you are presenting something, then just dress appropriately!
  4. There is no such thing as a stupid question. GTconsult has heard it all and will happily answer any questions that our clients may have during this trying time. Your feedback is also very important to us and we are here to listen to any other client suggestions on what more we can do to help during the lockdown.

Stay safe. Practice good hygiene by regularly washing your hands. And remember, take care of yourself, and each other!

We will get through this.
