Is Your Security Provider Brexit Ready?
Britain left the European Union almost twelve months ago, and sweeping changes in the way we do business with the rest of the world come into effect at the end of the year. These new rules and circumstances will effect all of us, even if we do not deal directly with overseas concerns. In the case of a NO DEAL Brexit, UK companies should expect fluctuations in product and service prices which have always remained stable before. Certain commodities may simply become unavailable. It has been speculated that the uncertainty may lead to an increase in job losses and crime. Certainly, people from all sectors will feel the stresses of these changes.
The global pandemic has dominated the news this year, and has understandably been a primary focus of concern and resources for most organisations. However, it is important to bear the following in mind: Soon, the pandemic will be over – by the creation of a successful vaccination, or some other means – and life will begin to return to normal. But if the UK leaves Europe without a trade deal, the repercussions will continue to effect us all for years and decades into the future. This is the ‘new normal’ we will still have to live with when COVID-19 is a distant memory, and the decisions we make now could play a large part in shaping that future.
With this in mind, at The CCTV Company we have taken decisive action to prepare for any foreseeable outcome. Our measures include:
- Increasing our cash reserves
- Expanding our fleet of vehicles
- Increasing our staff levels
- Securing preferential supply treatment from our main suppliers
- Securing stable alternative supply chains for all our products
- Partnering with companies who can provide finance to allow our clients to upgrade their security systems immediately
