Sungard AS launches new flexible workplace solution

Sungard Availability Services has launched a new dedicated workplace recovery service.
Designed to address the changing face of the workarea recovery space, and COVID-related social distancing restrictions, the new flexible solution provides customers with on-demand access to fully dedicated, bespoke working areas.

Each facility can provide all the necessary IT equipment and connectivity available at a company’s original production site, housed within buildings with hardened infrastructure, including UPS and generators.

It will enable businesses to partially or entirely move workforces to a new location, helping to spread out staff members safely, or indeed entirely replace a production site located an area of ‘high’ or ‘very high’ risk in England. Temperature checks can also be offered at site receptions and flexi-plastic screens installed where needed.

“2020 has been an immensely challenging time for businesses throughout the UK,” comments Pat Morley, GM Continental Europe at Sungard Availability Services. “As the fight against disruption to operations and supply chains continues to rest on the ability for organisations to remain both resilient and highly available, there is a growing need for innovative solutions which help businesses adapt to change at speed. This new offering not only affords businesses greater security, productivity and privacy than if staff were home working, but crucially, the ability to arrange workplace recovery in advance an outbreak emergency. This is just one way businesses can tackle their continuity requirements today, and plan effectively for tomorrow too.”

This latest announcement follows the unveiling in September of seven new Serviced Workplaces across the UK.


Listen to CIR's latest podcast with Sungard AS's Chris Butler and Pat Morley, in which we discuss some of the challenges created by the quick shift to home working, why the office may not have seen its last days and how the current environment can impact the ability of a business to recover.
