COVID-19_Supporting your business_Blog header

First and foremost, our thoughts are with the people and communities impacted by COVID-19. The wellbeing and safety of our employees, customers and partners is our top focus at this time.

We are in a strong position to weather these difficult times and continue providing our high standard of service and support to your business. We are closely monitoring the situation, preparing for potential scenarios and reacting rapidly to the evolving conditions and new information as it comes in.

Here is a summary of some of the steps we have taken:

  • We are following guidance from regulatory agencies, including the Ministry of Health and WHO.
  • We have provided advice on how to properly clean payment devices to help prevent the spread of illness.
  • We have enacted travel restrictions, work-from-home policies as necessary, and established other policies and procedures with the purpose of keeping our employees safe and reducing the spread of illness. We have also emphasised that our employees should not come into our facilities if they show any signs of sickness or believe they have been potentially exposed.
  • Providing payment services to our customers is obviously paramount. Our support teams have updated and preemptively tested business continuity plans and procedures that were previously in place. We will continue business activities 24/7 in the event of office shutdowns or other unplanned limitations.
  • We are maintaining robust cloud-based productivity tools to help ensure that our employees remain accessible to our customers and partners even if our facilities are not accessible.
  • We are implementing enhanced sanitisation measures at our facilities, including at our repair centers. We are also providing our employees with training on steps that they can take to keep themselves safe.
