COVID-19 UPDATE CENTRE
Working together to keep our customers trading and their staff safe through the pandemic and beyond
Thanks for visiting our Covid-19 update page. (Last updated 23rd August 2021.)
We continue to monitor the wider global situation regarding Covid-19, and appreciate the increased complexity of doing merchant business in this new commercial landscape. We continue to support our customers with innovative, easy-to-use software that makes life easier whether you're in the office, yard or living room. Dealing with uncertainty has become the norm, and our cloud software enables our customers to adapt fast when things change, and scale up business capability to cope with periods of increased demand without creating unrealistic overheads for when the market slows.
If there are any urgent updates, we will let you know via email or telephone. For other information, please see the updates below, or feel free to give us a call.
BUSINESS AS USUAL
While we don’t want to tempt fate, the nature of our business allows us to continue trading uninterrupted. Our team can work effectively from home, without compromising the quality or availability of service.
MERCHANTER CUSTOMERS & PROSPECTIVE CUSTOMERS
One of the huge advantages of a true cloud-based system is that it can be operated and updated remotely.
We have launched an online demo system to allow customers interested in Merchanter to try it for themselves at a time that suits them. It’s simple to use so we doubt you’ll need assistance taking it for a spin, but if you would rather have some help, we can happily arrange for a guided online demo instead. If you’d like to arrange to access the demo system or set up a guided demo, either email email@example.com or fill in the form here for login details.
INSTALLATION, ONBOARDING & TRAINING
While we would of course prefer to see our customers in person, we are able to conduct all demo, onboarding and training remotely.
Remote onboarding and training has many advantages; it’s less time consuming and disruptive for you and your staff, and of course it keeps everyone safer. It also means your staff can have training flexibly and remotely from home if they’re not in the office, so it really does offer a great deal of convenience.
YOUR HARDWARE, NO EXTRA RISK
Merchanter is a true cloud system, meaning it can be accessed as easily as a website through your internet browser. There is no need for other hardware or shared equipment, reducing the risks for your workforce.
SAFETY MEASURES FOR SITE VISITS
Thankfully we are able to resolve the majority of customer queries remotely, without a need for site visits. On the rare occasions that site visits are required for users of our older systems like UniTrade 360, we will of course comply with all health and safety recommendations and procedures to keep our customers safe.
HELPDESK SERVICE OPERATING AS USUAL
Our friendly helpdesk team is in place and working their usual hours to ensure we provide a seamless support service for our customers. You can email or phone as usual and there should be no difference in the service levels we provide.
