Below is a year-in-review of our top stories covering the changes stemming from the shift in remote working including navigating the digital transformation in the ITAD space, supply chain issues resulting from the pandemic, and HOBI’s remote box program.
Digital transformation is quickly becoming a new normal, especially in the business world. Enterprises are changing the way they interact with other companies and colleagues, and this change has provided more opportunities for collaboration and networking. Now, there’s no need to worry whether or not an employee can physically be present for a meeting, because digital transformation allows for the creation of virtual studios and office spaces so colleagues and team members can join from the comfort of their homes and collaborate more efficiently than ever. Digital transformation has increased communication and networking efficiency by providing more time for connecting that we would otherwise spend commuting, but what does this concept mean for the ITAD industry?
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the world in many different ways, from bringing about a digital transformation and changing the way we do business, to creating a labor shortage fueled by fear of returning to the workforce. Even now, society is still dealing with repercussions of the worldwide lockdown, and perhaps the largest impact of all are the issues created within the global supply chain.
Before 2020, the idea of living life contactless would seem silly, and near impossible, but as more businesses continue to operate remotely in efforts to steer clear of the COVID-19 virus, more employees are continuing to work from home. During this time HOBI International Inc. remains committed to supporting the IT and mobile asset disposition needs of our clients. We have developed a COVID-compliant assurance program designed to mitigate exposure to the virus while maintaining client satisfaction and maximizing your return on the value of your assets.
