To do this, we will be making a few changes that will help us check in with our clients more consistently, while keeping you and our team members safe. Here are some of the things we are doing:
- We have ensured that there will be no disruption in our service to you. All of our employees are fully equipped to work remotely. Our IT infrastructure is backed up and secured.
- We'll be prohibiting any visitors from entering our offices until further notice. This measure protects any employees that will be onsite.
- All of our phone lines will work as you are used to. We ask you to please leave a message to ensure all calls are returned.
Thank you for your understanding as we take these precautionary steps. If you have any concerns, please reach out to your SCS Account Executive. Additionally, keep checking this page as we will continue to update it.
