Coronavirus Update

Our thoughts and prayers are with all our business friends, clients and their families through these unprecedented times. It is amazing how just a few months ago we were planning to go to some very exciting events. Everything seems to have shut down very quickly.

Who would have thought that in such a small space of time our world would have been turned upside down? Today, instead of inviting our customers to join us for coffee, we are working out ways to keep everyone safe and healthy when they want to meet up to discuss their business ideas.

Sadly, the first step has been to cancel all future events and meetings until we are certain that it is safe to proceed with even small gatherings of people. With some of our family members being in high-risk groups, we have decided to self-isolate as per the government’s recommendations.

However, we are now putting together further technical measures to support our clients so we all can move through this: Our structure already supports a “Working from Home” policy and we are contactable on 0333 344 0871. This is our Voice over IP telephone system which allows voice calls to anywhere around the world. We are available on our mobiles, emails and WhatsApp.

We can now access video conferencing with audio for clients through several systems. We are already setup using Microsoft Teams, centralising our systems with our clients. This allows central collaboration on projects.

We are available Monday to Friday as normal so please contact us with your requests. Bespoke systems and technology are our business, we implement systems for yours.

We are so very grateful to all our customers and staff who are still supporting us during these unprecedented times and hope that our new measures will help to reassure you that our staff and client's health and safety is always top of our priority list.

During these unique circumstances, please follow the guidelines suggested by the World Health Organization, your local government authorities and health organisations.

Important Update: Business Catalyst End-of-Life Extended


As the situation with COVID-19 unfolds it is clear we are in unprecedented times which has created profound uncertainty worldwide. We understand that for many clients their Business Catalyst website underpins their business and we’d like to try to help avoid further disruption where we can.
We do remain committed to our goal to discontinue the platform, but to try to alleviate the stress as we all come to terms with working under these new circumstances, we are announcing an extension to Business Catalyst End-of-Life date by six months. The new end of life date is now 26 September 2021, after which date the service will be taken offline.

For further information regarding End-of-Life, refer to: https://businesscatalyst.com/.

Our team is here to support you during these challenging times, and we hope this helps you with your site migration plans. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

Stay safe and healthy,
The Adobe Business Catalyst Team
