#Zoomfatigue – it’s a thing but feedback at the weekly Tuesday @BNIWoking meeting, on zoom of course, indicates that we’re all accepting that virtual meetings are here to stay.

zoom meeting 21 July 2020

Reporting on a hike in demand for improved broadband connection, Andy Dunn of #CleanlineInstallations highlighted a longstanding client who called for help at his home where he is doing stints of up to seven hours on Zoom.

He said: “Although he had 4G Broadband connection it wasn’t reaching the study in his home. When he called us, we found that the whole area had bad connection. So, we sorted out the problem by installing new cabling for him. We’re getting a lot of calls like this at present and for this particular client it’s essential now that he’s working from home because all his outlets are based on the Continent.”

Simon Isherwood of #SitecIT is also very busy getting calls from individuals and companies who are asking for IT upgrades. He said: “Our clients are also doing a lot more on zoom these days and are finding performance to be an issue. We’ve just finished another job for a client who needed a solid state drive upgrade on his laptop which gives him a much faster performance.”

Meanwhile, the rise in property activity continues from people looking to buy and, or, sell, to those carrying out building projects. An interesting side note from Andrew Myall of #DentonsMortgages, as people are taking out a mortgage to use the credit facility against their home to help finance their business as a result of #lockdown challenges.
