COVID-19 - Message from Paul Raymond
Health, reliability and efficiency at the heart of our commitments
Humanity today faces an unprecedented challenge to slow the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation is pushing organizations all over the planet to put in place historic and drastic measures to contain the virus. As a company with operations in Canada, the United States and France, we are very aware of the international significance of the spread of COVID-19 on the well-being and activities of our employees and their families, our clients, our partners and our communities. Alithya has proactively put in place many measures as part of a three-pronged action plan focused on:
- Protecting our employees and their families;
- Protecting our clients and partners;
- Protecting our business and our communities;
As expert advisers and digital systems integrator, people are at the heart of everything we do. We are monitoring the evolution of the pandemic very closely and have taken the necessary measures to limit the health risks for our employees: reinforcing hygiene measures, implementing a teleworking policy, restricting travel, postponing events, and following all government required restrictions, among others. We have taken these steps to protect our people and their loved ones in order to support them no matter where they are.
Our clients and partners
We wish to also reassure our clients regarding our ability to intervene under the circumstances to ensure the continuity of our respective activities and the effective management of incidents, in a responsible manner. We are already taking action to implement emergency measures, business continuity plans, remote work and other exceptional measures for our clients. Several of you have already told us about your organizational, human and technological challenges, and we have set up a Centre of Expertise in Crisis Management to support you during this period and give you direct and centralized access to a multidisciplinary team equipped to work remotely. This gives you access to quick and effective advice on:
- Telework and collaboration tools
- IT disaster recovery and business recovery
- An emergency transfer of your applications to the cloud
- Managed services
- Desktop virtualization
- Security for your infrastructure
All our client activities are maintained, and we will always be there for you.
