Technology in 2020: unprecedented times

In light of unprecedented events, we’re all aware that working in the office isn’t business as usual around the world right now. Across the globe, large corporations are taking steps to place health and safety first, with necessary precautions, and asking staff and teams to work remotely from home, with business travel bans. You likely find yourself in the same situation at the moment.


You likely find yourself now in the same situation. Beyond the health implications, it has become clear that there will be logistics and technology implications as well.

With many of us working from home and/or part of internationally-based teams, we are lucky to rely on tech, wifi and streaming, more than ever before & this scenario can pose some challenges;

Fast, stable and reliable connections aren’t always guaranteed, but perhaps the bigger challenge lies in the fact that China is one of the world’s largest tech and networking equipment manufacturers and exporters. Currently many Chinese production plants have been shut down, giving way to a huge backlog of equipment production.

As a result, prices have skyrocketed due to scarcity, and delayed delivery are a given.


More than ever, we stand behind our mantra – ‘good for people, planet and profit’, and are glad to be of assistance during this time of reduced operations and travel.

Refurbished equipment are better than new in many ways – after going through our rigorous testing and upgrading process.

We’re able to offer:

  • Faster delivery
  • Lifelong guarantee
  • Lower price

On behalf of the team at Aliter, we want to send you our heartfelt wishes for your health and safety during this time. Take care of yourselves and each other throughout what will be a challenging time, but no doubt, a time when humanity rises to meet it.

If you think you might be in need of refurbished tech support or equipment, we’d love to help. Please get in touch via the contact page. Aliter is still operating out of both our Dutch and Singapore HQs, albeit with some expected transport and delivery delays.
