In these uncertain times it is difficult to see the signal for the noise. As we look to start the tentative task of re-opening and re-booting the economy, we must ask ourselves: what is the best way to re-open? How do you protect yourselves and your clients? We spoke to Hot Spring IT, who just may have the answer. During our conversation, Parmi Lally, Owner and MD of the company, offered more insight into his history and experience.
From the very beginning, Parmi Lally has endeavoured to deliver client-centric and best in class IT solutions to businesses across London and beyond its borders. With over two decades of experience primarily in the IT and technology spheres in both the US and the UK, Parmi can be considered an aficionado dedicated to innovation and best practice in his field of work.
Despite this background, Hot Spring IT has pivoted somewhat in recent months in light of the Coronavirus pandemic to provide smart solutions to businesses following the easing of the lockdown. After all, this situation is unprecedented: there’s no absolute guide on how to do business in the current climate. But, as history often tells us, challenging times yield creative solutions.
On this, Parmi offers a brief outline of how Hot Spring IT is endeavouring to bring a peace of mind in a time of unwavering uncertainty and stress. “Well, your first line of defence is to ensure that no one enters your premises, offices, factories etc with a temperature. How can you effectively and safely do this? Deploy a Smart Heat Sensing device at your front line. The Smart Heat Sensing device can take a temperature within one second and can verify that the person entering is within the parameters set by you. Now you can be COVID secure and ensure you have a good front line strategy.
“Moreover, I have expanded our range of services to also include Temperature Sensing Cameras, hand sanitisers and hands-free access control systems. Employers can rest assured that these products offer a seamless and intuitive way to monitor employees and allow their business to be COVID secure moving forwards, whatever the future may bring.”
Ultimately, Hot Spring IT’s success has long been secured by ‘out of the box’ thinking, and by staying one step ahead of emerging developments within the greater sector. Partnering this approach with an unwavering dedication to client-centric services has certainly proven to be a potent combination for the company in what is, by all regards, a highly competitive environment.
Indeed, the world of business needs creativity and innovation to thrive right now, and those that can offer a guiding light to others look set to be the pacesetters for the future. Naturally, this is especially true in the technology industry, which has been a vital cornerstone for businesses of all shapes and sizes in this period of immense change. To put it simply, businesses are relying on robust technological solutions and services to operate.
To continue on, businesses need experts that know what they’re doing. Experts that they can trust to have their best interests at heart in a time that many are eager for answers. Parmi is keen to offer his expertise to help. “Hot Spring IT was founded on a mission to establish truly personalised services to a client’s very individual needs. We take the time to spend time with the client, learning about their organisation, their values and their current IT situation. From there, Hot Spring IT builds a bespoke solution to deliver a ‘Best Fit’ to improve the client’s IT function and delivery of their core business.”
With a broad suite of services- which includes relocations, start-up set-up and server, desktop, network, voice, cloud and IT Security infrastructure – it is clear that Hot Spring IT has firmly established itself as a sort of one-stop-shop for businesses old and new alike. In this, Parmi has committed himself to being a ‘Master of All Trades’ rather than, simply, a master of one. He is an individual that doesn’t seem content with sitting on his laurels, and instead focuses on developing and moving forwards in response to the current (and future) climate.
With a strong commitment to its core values, it’s no surprise that Hot Spring IT is growing continuously through customer referrals and long-lasting partnerships that look to establish strong roots in the industry moving forwards. All in all, the future of Hot Spring IT lies in development: in delivering better services that meet – and exceed- the ever-changing expectations of clients.
Are you Ready for a Return to the Office?
Here Parmi Lally shares some tips on how you can better prepare for the post pandemic workplace.
- Re-arrange the desk layout to ensure a 6ft gap (at least) between workstations
- Small meeting rooms could become temporary individual offices
- Larger meeting rooms could be used as hot desk rooms
- Ask staff to gauge who would like to continue working remotely, and action on the back of a potential partial return to the office. Make plans for a potential long-term work from home initiative.
- Implement floor markings and transparent shields to ensure social distancing
- Implement temperature checks on staff when they enter the building
- Provide face masks for staff to use during their commute to and from the office
- Provide hand sanitiser in communal areas, such as next to printers, and in kitchens
- Hold an online team building event just before the planned return for the wellbeing of staff
- Review communication infrastructure on an ongoing basis and be proactive in addressing any issues
- Above all, maintain regular communication across the team. It’s important in this uncertain time to ensure a strong platform for the business moving forwards.
