Corona Crisis - Making the best of it

Apr 14, 2020 4:44:19 PM

There is no doubt that the precautions against the Corona Virus (COVID-19) are affecting our lives in all directions by reducing our mobility, social interaction and resources that make a great deal of our daily activity. The measures taken have lead to an unforeseen impact on the economic situation of many companies revealing global dependencies. What will a travel world look like with all the learnings from this crisis? One question we need an answer for, is how to survive this crisis and prepare for the future.

So, how can we make the best of it, besides just surviving?

One thing is for sure. Keeping calm and acting according to the situation is a prime element of conduct in these weeks. The travel business, as we know it, is slowing down or even coming to a full stop. Nonetheless, with companies sending us requests for demos these days, we see that there is a need to prepare for these challenges and evaluate technical solutions.

The reality is, that a crisis like this reveals the inefficiencies of workflows in business operations, most of which might already have been identified earlier, but which never were solved due to a massive daily workload. Most likely, many managers wish to have been more prepared for the Corona Crisis. Now is a chance to identify and tackle inefficiencies and implement solutions that make your business more resilient and agile in the future.

Operational questions to answer

  • Is there potential for further automation?
  • What are the primary sources of error in your operations?
  • Where do you have double work?
  • What is your strategy with regards to market adoption? (After all, the world will look different after this crisis)
  • What are your dependencies?
  • Can you manage diversification?
  • What are your capabilities with regards to crisis management?
  • What jobs would you like to manage remotely?
