He comments; “No one could have predicted the impact COVID-19 had on our professional and private lives. However, at Workflo, our business plans, goals, and ambitions remain steadfast. We have worked hard to bring together the fragmented managed service market, and to offer clients a holistic solution, one which delivers greater value than that of its individual parts.

“This is also down to intelligent recruitment as the market adapts to change. Having hired personnel which brings our staff compliment to 32, up from 21, since the beginning of the year, the entire team is focused on helping clients seamlessly transition into this new post-Covid era. Core service areas such as managed print, document management and IT management or Cloud adoption are crucial to their business processes.

In doing this, we will alleviate pressure on our clients’ businesses as many of them take time to embrace the new normal. Much of this evolution comes from cloud printing solutions facilitating communication from those workers adopting flexible home working, which allow documents to be produced and sent securely”.

Workflo Solutions recruitment during the lockdown period has enabled the business to hire people who were facing uncertainty in their careers because of the pandemic and is delighted to offer them a new start.
