Hi *|FNAME|*,

Well, what a difference a month makes. The current events regarding coronavirus has affected everyone in different ways. We are busy transitioning businesses to enable their staff to work from home while other businesses are closing down and laying off staff. It is anyone's guess to how long this is going to go on for, which I think is the concern for most people. Now is the time for all of us to support those local businesses that are doing it tough and try and stay positive as much as we can.

In the world of IT, laptops, webcams and monitors are all in short supply. If you are in need of any of these items please let us know ASAP so we can try and source stock.

If you are looking at ways in which you can work from home, let me know as there are a few different options available to most businesses.

If you need any help or assistance let me know. Stay safe and catch you all next month.

COVID-19 Information

DP Computing is still providing both onsite and remote support to ensure our clients keep on operating. As a business we are continually monitoring the latest government updates regarding the caronavirus and taking all necessary precautions. We currently have a policy for technicians to follow and some of our technicians will be working from their homes. If anyone at your site has COVID-19 symptoms or has returned from interstate or overseas recently we will not be attending the site and instead will be offering remote support. If this causes any issues with clients, we apologise in advance.

We have been informed that due to the fact that a number of our clients are deemed as essential services we will still be offering onsite services and support even in the event of a full lockdown. Whether this means we can also attend other clients premises is not known at this stage.

Remote services can also be used where we do not even need to come into your office or business. Depending on you issue we may insist that we try and solve your issues remotely before we come onsite. If you prefer remote services also please let us know.

We can also help businesses with transitioning their staff to work from home. If you or your staff members would like to work remotely please let us know as we can help set this up.

Just because we are in partial lockdown, doesn't mean the scammers are also on a break. Instead there are more scams out there than before.


We publish these tech tips each Tuesday morning to our social networks, so please join us on the following platforms:
