COVID-19 outbreak is a trial for everyone, every organization and every nation involved. SonoScape has responded proactively through accelerated manufacturing, logistic, installation, service, solution sharing, and donations.
- Accelerated and orderly manufacturing: With risk evaluation and careful precaution measures, including regular body temp check, workplace disinfections, staggered scheduling, 70% factory workers and engineers returned to their duty under government permission and in safe working environment to produce around the clock.
- Work against time: adjusted delivery and installation procedure, so the devices can be shipped, installed and tested within 24 hours.
