1st June 2020 - Yorcoms relaunch helps keep customers connected during lockdown

1st June 2020 - Yorcoms relaunch helps keep customers connected during lockdown
The impact of Covid-19 on housing, health, and care providers - and their residents, customers, and patients - has been unprecedented. Lockdown and the necessary limitations on social contact imposed by the Government have hugely increased the risk of loneliness, social isolation, and boredom for many vulnerable people.    At Yorcoms, we understand that keeping connected has never been as important as it is right now. Whether that is customers staying in touch with family, friends and loved ones, or shopping for groceries online, or providers trying to keep in contact with their residents, we believe that providing the infrastructure to make this ‘connectivity’ possible is one of our key responsibilities during this time. We also understand the issues faced by our customers and with these in mind we have worked to develop innovative solutions as part of our exciting relaunch.   Our ‘technology for good’ ethos drove us to ask how could we safely implement our technologies to help relieve feelings of isolation and boredom? How could we keep people connected whilst adhering to government guidelines? How could we support...
