Credit Strategy has launched the Covid-19 Tracker, a new website section for all members, along with a premium membership package designed to help businesses with staff working at home or furloughed.
The Covid-19 Tracker is a new feature of the Credit Strategy website, where every news item has been collated that relates to developments such as Treasury support schemes, new FCA guidance, mortgage payment holidays, activity and reaction among trade bodies and firms, plus call volumes flooding into banks and debt advice charities.
As we’ve covered all announcements from government, regulators, lenders, service providers and industry transformations as they’ve happened, these can now be found in one place.
Available to all members, the Covid-19 Tracker will enable readers to browse back through articles on these topics since March, providing a refresher on the wave of support measures and changes that have taken effect in a short period.
As a further measure to support our audience, we’ve also removed the paywall to selected Premium articles (highlighted in ‘Editor’s picks’ on the Covid-19 Tracker page) and the forthcoming digital issue of Credit Strategy magazine.
This issue of the magazine will feature an in-depth report on lenders’ continuity plans and support for customers. The digital issue will be mailed out to our entire audience to download, to help them benefit from the insight of fellow members.
We’re also making changes to keep readers – and their staff – informed. We’ve launched a heavily discounted three-month Premium Membership to help members with staff working at home, and those using the furlough scheme, access content to stay engaged and informed.
Luke Broadhurst, chief executive of Shard Financial Media, the parent company of Credit Strategy, said: “Our members have undertaken rapid, significant changes to support their customers. We are no different.
“We recognise that members have swiftly adapted to oversee WFH policies, and in some cases, may have furloughed staff. Recognising this, and our members’ desire to ensure remote staff stay informed, engaged and motivated, we’re enhancing our content service to our entire audience.
“We’re working round the clock to help all members, standard and premium, track every development amid the Covid-19 outbreak that has an impact on them, their clients and customers. Our new short-term membership package also offers a tailored solution to those looking for granular insight on best practice and industry trends, during a period in which shared knowledge will be vital.”
