COVID-19 (CORONA VIRUS) UPDATE

In light of the continuing situation with COVID-19 (Corona virus), we would like to share with you what we, at Purple Cat Ltd, are doing to ensure service continuity and how we can help our customers.

  • All employees on-site or off-site have been advised on good practice to help avoid catching or spreading the virus.
  • Systems are in place to allow all sales, admin and customer support staff to work remotely if required to ensure a seamless service.
  • Where possible, face to face meetings and site surveys will be replaced by phone or video calls and emails.

Currently all orders are being processed and shipped as expected. We have also checked with our partners and suppliers and hardware stock levels are good. Measures are in place to ensure the protection of warehouse workforce and continuity of deliveries.

For the safety of our staff and our customers, installations are now on hold until further notice. Should you need an installation in the future, we are happy to advise on a suitable solution and cost so please don't hesitate to contact us.

As always, we remain committed to supporting our customers and helping minimise disruption to their activities and businesses.
We offer a range of products including video conferencing and web cam devices, laptops and visualisers that may be useful should employees have to work remotely. Please contact us for advice and we will try our best to offer the lowest prices possible.
