In just two months, the coronavirus outbreak has changed the way thousands of companies operate in an unprecedented way. As business owners and employees move online to try to navigate this new normal, others are working hard to ensure that they can continue to operate amid this global pandemic.
BMIT Technologies delivers services to hundreds of customers from various industries including online gaming, financial services, ICT, manufacturing, media, transportation, retail and hospitality. The tech company powers businesses to achieve their desired outcomes through harnessing technology and it is involved in the provision of data centre services within the Maltese economy, including provision of bandwidth, connectivity and co-location services, and the sale of hardware to third parties.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting chaos it is creating, BMIT Technologies has adapted its strategies to ensure an unprecedented level of diligence in terms of CSR. While this has always been a priority, new and innovative ways of conducting business in a safe and reliable manner are being implemented to ensure the safety and well-being of all clients and employees.
As companies, organisations and schools continue to move to remote working as part of the national and global social distancing measures, demand for efficient cloud computing is at an all-time high. From the onset of the outbreak, BMIT took several initiatives aimed at providing essential and necessary services to ensure that their clienteles can continue to run their respective businesses smoothly during this challenging and hard-hitting time. Among these initiatives was a swift response to support their customers by implementing teleworking as quickly as possible, in order to protect their respective workforce, engineering and maintain their client’s key systems during the COVID-19 crisis.
The tech company also chose to help and assist local organizations which provide vital support to vulnerable societies and which have seen a sharp rise in requests for basics such as food and rent. To that effect, BMIT recently also donated a substantial sum to two local NGOs: the Richmond Foundation and the Jesuit Refugee Service. Both organizations are specifically designed to support those who have found themselves on the fringes of society or who have slipped through the cracks, now more than ever. “From the start of this outbreak, we were determined to provide the best service in ensuring that all our services operated at highest levels of efficiencies. With our monetary donations, we simply wanted to offer some additional support to these two wonderful NGOs which are dealing with the fragile side of society.” said Karl Demicoli, Head of HR at BMIT Technologies.
