Making brighter cities

Note from CEO on Covid-19: We are open for business

Telensa is maintaining operations as usual, supporting all existing and new rollout programmes, while ensuring the health of our team and others.

Dear All

What strange times! During this uncertainty I thought it important to write a few words to reassure all our valued customers and key partners that Telensa is still open for business.

The team at Telensa are doing everything they can to:

  • Continue giving full support to all our customer networks
  • Continue rollout of new networks, as planned, so customers can start to achieve the benefits as soon as possible
  • Continue working with new customers, be it for new pilots or large-scale deployments

As a global company we are used to working “virtually”, using everyday collaboration tools to work together over large distances.  So, as most of our staff move to remote working it is just an extension of business as usual.

Of course, supply chain, manufacturing and logistics require special attention to ensure we continue to deliver high-quality products.  The team has put in a lot of work to make sure that our manufacturing remains unaffected so we can fulfil existing orders and deliver new systems.  We are continuing to work with suppliers to maintain operations.

I am sure that your own teams, like ours, are changing how they work to meet local health guidance.  Please let us know if we can help minimise the impact of the changes and our team will be as flexible as possible.  I’m keen that our account managers discuss the changes with customers over the next few weeks to see if we can help in anyway.

I have no doubt we can navigate this difficult time together and we look forward to coming out of the other side stronger.  In the meantime, my team and I will support you to our fullest ability.

My thoughts are with anyone affected by the virus and I wish anybody in this situation a speedy recovery.

My best wishes,

Brent Hudson
CEO, Telensa
