I am writing to you to let you know the dates, specific changes and services affected during this phase of infrastructure updates.
Our intention is to minimise the impact on Partners, Customers and Suppliers however, it is possible that some of you may be affected.
Please note we plan to provide additional Technical Support and Customer Services during peak engineering activity on August 15th and 18th.
Below, please find details of the planned infrastructure changes;
