Rossendale-based CircleLoop, the cloud-based phone system for business, has pledged to provide free business telephony to any school, healthcare provider or charity who is facing remote working challenges.

The service, which the company says is a response to the escalating coronavirus crisis, will be offered free of charge for the next three months to any existing or new customers who need to facilitate remote, mobile or flexible working at short notice.

The firm said its system can be live "in a matter of minutes", with no card or payment details required.

Damian Hanson, co-founder of CircleLoop, said: “Here at CircleLoop we recognise the unprecedented issues that the coronavirus outbreak is causing for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

"As a team we wanted to do something to try to make the pressures experienced by schools, healthcare providers and charities a little easier when needing to work remotely during self-isolation periods in the coming weeks.”
