Preparing for life after lockdown… Allow us to make the transition back to work an easy one

Preparing for life after lockdown… Allow us to make the transition back to work an easy one

Almost a full year after we all became aware of COVID-19, it seems like we can at last start our preparation for business after lockdown. With retail and hospitality set to re-open in just a matter of weeks and the population getting ready to holiday, socialise and shop again, we have now reached a point of significant positive change.

We know that many things will be different, and most organisations will be operating with changes to premises layout, employee rotas and probably also predicted throughput. The key to bouncing back successfully will be in the preparation carried out now for this very different working landscape.

At PLM Global we have, of course, been making our own preparations. Not only have we made our entire company ‘post-COVID ready’, but we’ve also given a huge amount of thought to how we can help each and every one of our clients to hit the ground running and cope with the challenges they face.

How exactly can we ensure that we support our clients with exactly what they need?

There are 3 main aspects of the PLM Global service which will be key in helping our clients to recover quickly and effectively: -

Supplier collaboration

When it comes to equipment, we are proud of the fact that we have access to the highest quality equipment and best technology available. The strong relationship we have with our suppliers means that we can even offer very short lead times on these tried, tested and trusted systems. No delays as we re-build stocks and no delays due to import restrictions – we’ve got it all covered.

What’s more, PLM Global can also boast the best-in-class secured supply of all consumables as a result of our long-term, direct relationships with OEMs.

Repair and refurbish

As well as offering our own range of refurbished and warrantied legacy stock and 2nd user equipment (thanks to our trade links across 5 continents), we also offer a full repair and refurbish service across our clients’ estate.

Whether it’s a small number of ad-hoc repairs or an annual contract for planned refurbishment, PLM Global have solutions for any existing equipment challenge. And with extensive stocks and the backing of a global, world-class spare parts supply chain, we can offer turnaround times of just 3-5 days across the range. In fact, downtime needn’t be a concern at all with loop stock provided by us to keep things running whilst we expedite repairs.

Rentals and Buy-Backs

Even the most organised businesses will have a degree of uncertainty when it comes to demand post-lockdown, and this may raise concerns about current hardware inventory. The desire to capitalise upon the peaks is often tempered by the risk of having valuable capital tied up in equipment which is required only periodically.

Our answer to this dilemma is a simple one- the facility to rent additional hardware as and when it is needed. Again, our solutions are available at short notice and with the same guarantees of quality which applies to all of our new and pre-used units.

And if as a result of new trading trends equipment is no longer needed at all, PLM Global offer a buy back service. With our extensive, global client base, we can apply best market pricing to any redundant barcode and EPoS hardware, with both straight purchase and revenue-share options available.
