Response to the COVID-19 pandemic has brought in wide-ranging and necessary limitations on travel and close personal contact. These restrictions and precautions are presenting businesses of all sizes and across all sectors with challenges.
While the timelines for how long COVID-19 will remain a public threat are unclear, with estimates ranging anywhere between two to 18 months, organizations are building out their business continuity plans to account for travel restrictions and to greatly reduce human-to-human contact.
One of our industrial partners has shared specifically how it’s adapted to this new normal to ensure that its operations continue to flow, its people and customers are safe and connected, that the company does its part to mitigate the spread of the virus, and that its operations remain efficient.
Rogers Electric is a sales and service provider for electric motors, gear-boxes, pumps, compressors and other equipment, throughout Atlantic Canada. Rogers serves industrials like petroleum, mining, lumber, hydro, water treatment, fisheries, and others. They operate numerous remote locations around Atlantic Canada and a headquarters in Bathurst, New Brunswick.
In normal operations, the company frequently visits client sites to conduct equipment installations and service. Rogers sometimes has to send multiple technicians to a job site if the task is overly complex or if the on-the-ground resource requires assistance. These procedures had to be adapted to greatly reduce travel and human-to-human contact.
The company has taken COVID-19 spread mitigation very seriously while also ensuring that operations continue to flow efficiently, and its staff and clients stay safe.
Here are the technologies that Rogers Electric has either put in place or have had in place that ensure business continuity.
