IT company invests money in bid to survive the coronavirus outbreak

Tom Flockhart, managing director

A SCOTTISH IT business has revealed the major efforts it is deploying to survive the COVID-19 crisis.

Capital Document Solutions has invested more than £25,000 to readapt operations and redeploy more core staff remotely in its efforts to strongly position the business.

The Edinburgh-headquartered firm – which has 200 members of staff across its bases in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness says the near total shutdown of business life has had a profound and immediate impact on its operations, as it has for all other businesses.

Tom Flockhart, founder and managing director, said: “We’ve set up our own ‘Cobra’ team which meets regularly to review our plans, processes, and actions as well as outcomes. That lets us take the necessary decisions to maintain our operations as effectively as possible in these challenging circumstances.

“On top of that, each of our teams has been tasked with identifying new strategies that we can implement to enhance the business when we get to the reimagined stage on the other side of this crisis.”
