Important Update: Powertec’s response to the increasing impact of COVID-19 Virus

COVID-19 update

The Powertec Team thank all our partners for your patience and support at this difficult time and our thoughts are with you.

Powertec Telecommunications wants to inform our Partners of the increasing impact the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has on the ability to contact our staff or purchase product at this time.

Important Update:

In accordance with Powertec’s Business Continuity Plan, a large portion of our staff are working from home due to safety concerns regarding the potential for transmission of the COVID-19 Virus.

Contacting the team:

The majority of Powertec staff are working from home, and phones have been redirected – for many of our team, it is business as usual.

Web orders are preferable as it means we can fulfil your order with less staff intervention.

We ask our local customers to please, Phone, Order & Collect. Call ahead if you wish to collect a package and we will arrange for a collection time. No one can enter our Southport Head Office at this time.

Our Logistics Team & Warehouse:

Our warehouse staff will endeavour to remain in the office as long as they are able.

Due to current issues, the stock situation is changeable and fluid.  Currently our supply chain is strong but there are some delays due to the shrinking pool of carriers. As you may have read, restricting movement within numerous countries, including Australia has been implemented due to safety concerns regarding the potential for transmission of the COVID-19 Virus.  The knock on effect is increased transportation costs to get stock to Australia.

Please note your orders and deliveries could be affected in the following ways:

  1. Deliveries have been delayed for the incoming stock from overseas causing immediate shortages of some products and possibly long-term shortages of others.
  2. Delivery of your outgoing orders via our parcel courier may be delayed depending on the staffing situation at the parcel company.
  3. Due to the supply of emergency service clients, the fulfilment of your order may be reduced, delayed or put on back-order depending on the products or circumstances.

Should any of these events occur, we will keep you up to date with your order status.

Next Steps:

We are happy to report that only a small number of products are affected currently, and most items are due for delivery soon.

Updating Our Partners

We believe it is our responsibility to protect our cost position, both to be able to weather the storms but importantly to ensure that you have a Partner who is looking towards the future and being part of the solution contributing to lifting Australia and New Zealand (and the world) out of this current crisis. The recent $US drop along with increasing transportation costs are affecting stock prices.

As your Partner in this, we will strive to be as open and proactive as possible in our communications and solutions, throughout the crisis, so we can manage necessary adjustments with your needs at the heart of our decisions.

Kind regards

Samantha Clifton

General Manager
