Webfactory Coronavirus Update
March 27th, 2020
This is a very uncertain time for us all and we wanted to update you on how we're responding to the challenges of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
Here at Webfactory, we're working hard behind the scenes to make sure we are fully prepared for the potential effect it could have on our employees and customers. Being in the tech sector, we are well positioned to adapt as things develop. With this in mind, all our staff have already moved to remote working positions and are available via phone, email and live chat if required. By doing this we can continue to offer our full range of services at this difficult time.
For piece of mind, our core hours will remain the same (9am - 5pm) for calls, emails and live chats. We will continue to receive emails 24/7 and will aim to reply to them as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
We recommend adding information to your website to inform your customers about how you are operating during this period. You can do this with your website's content management system. We've also produced a small blog article with information on actions you can take on your website to keep your customers informed. Read our website coronavirus blog article.
