As a valued SAI Global customer, more so than anyone, you appreciate the importance of trust and integrity in the face of business continuity preparedness. With the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak continuing to change rapidly, I wanted to personally provide an update on what SAI Global is doing to ensure the continuity of our business operations.
We are committed to maintaining a high level of business continuity during these uncertain times, and keeping our software, services and support available to customers around the globe. We have a geographically dispersed workforce that utilizes a cloud-based architecture model and distributed data center approach, which are designed to operate without any service disruptions.
The safety and well-being of our employees is paramount, so we have put several precautions in place to protect our workforce, reduce the impact of the epidemic and help #FlattenTheCurve. We continue to reassess and adjust these precautions as circumstances unfold:
- Starting March 16, SAI Global has strongly recommended employees who are able to work remotely do so for the next two weeks.
- We have restricted non-essential domestic and international air travel for SAI Global business.
- SAI Global leadership is providing specific, real-time guidance for essential employee roles across our business units.
Please see this FAQ for additional detail on how we’re preparing SAI Global’s workforce for COVID-19.
Given the unknown variables surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, we understand that your organization too is facing several challenges including unprecedented business impacts from employee health to disrupted supply chains. We have put together guidance on COVID-19 business continuity here. If you have questions regarding your solutions from SAI, please reach out to your account manager.
With a sound risk management strategy, we can be proactive in mitigating the risks of the COVID-19 outbreak and prepared for whatever comes next. Please read these eight steps for designing a Coronavirus crisis management plan from SAI Global’s business continuity Risk Advisor James Green for an expert view on how to alleviate reputational and financial business disruptions caused by the Coronavirus.
