In our position as Colt’s No. 1 UK Partner in providing high-bandwidth and flexible SDN solutions to our clients, the onset of COVID19 has spurred on a change that was already in progress. The sudden move to home-working, and the management of that remote workforce by our clients, was something we too had to implement. Managing the transition across 3 continents and 3 time zones, Linimex’s staff were aware from the outset of what would have to change, having advised many clients on their digital transformations over the years. Nonetheless, the transition has given us all a deeper understanding of client needs.
