As the Coronavirus continues to impact around the world ProAct International would like to make clear our position and actions taken to date.
The health of ProAct employees, customers and partners is our primary concern in any event and so in light of global precautions for the COVID-19 Coronavirus and taking into account recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), UK National Health Service (NHS), UK Government and other Governments around the World, ProAct will be adopting the following policy:
The company has adopted, with immediate effect, new travel restrictions for the safety of its employees and customers, which is consistent with current travel guidance by the various organisations.
ProAct is suspending all international travel for meetings and for participation in all external events. All meetings of this nature must take place using virtual methods such as Conference calls and or Video Conferencing. International travel will only be sanctioned for business-critical situations where virtual methods are insufficient. Fortunately the nature of our business in information technology means that we are well equipped to sustain our operations remotely with staff working from home.
If ProAct staff have personal travel planned to affected or restricted areas, they must inform their manager and must self-quarantine for 14 days, working from home, after their trip is completed, per recommendations by health organisations and Governments.
Domestic travel for work or meetings with customers is permitted however ProAct staff are encouraged to also hold these meetings and events virtually if possible.
We will also ensure that we understand and respect the policies of the customers, partners or events we are attending and always follow local restrictions and or enforcements, so please be sure to keep us advised on your own policies.
At these meetings or events we will also adopt a policy of “no handshakes” to further reduce the risk of contracting or spreading the virus and this will also extend to visitors to ProAct offices.
As a well established software solutions provider to our many clients around the world we believe that these restrictions are in the best interests of all concerned and should not adversely restrict our ability to trade or support our products and customers.
ProAct International are keeping those directly affected by this virus in our thoughts and are hoping that we can all stay safe by using all the precautions and guidance available to us from the health authorities
Welcome to ProAct International
Your supply chain is analogous to an orchestra – many pieces playing in harmony to achieve a perfect performance. Playing a wrong note or at the wrong tempo, the audience will notice and the entire performance is compromised.
The more complex the musical score or the more pieces involved, the higher likelihood of error. So whilst the music sheet documents exactly what needs to be played and at what pace, the conductor is critical to its execution, listening to the performance, making split second decisions and instantly directing the players in order to keep all sections aligned and in tune.
This type of dynamic orchestration is key to the performance of any supply chain.
Complexity is inherent in many supply chains, but many perceive complexity to be bad simply because it is difficult to orchestrate. Whilst no one would ever seek to simplify a great symphony, in the supply chain world we often deal with complexity by simply removing it. Rationalisation and simplification no doubt have their place but over simplification often negates or neutralises the intrinsic value of the supply chain.
At ProAct, we take a different approach.
Don’t strip out complexity simply because it is difficult to manage, learn to manage it by implementing tools that embrace complexity.
