More than 97% of all Tellco pkPRO clients are SMEs. A large number of these companies are directly or indirectly affected by the coronavirus outbreak, both financially and in terms of staffing issues. The situation at these SMEs is currently tense. In addition to prioritising the protection of employees’ health and safety, loss of revenue is currently presenting them with a big challenge, and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. This may lead to liquidity shortages and, in some cases, may put people’s livelihoods at risk.
