Digitalization as a decisive competitive advantage in times of Coronavirus
United Planet available to customers and partners at all times
As a leading software developer and digital leader, United Planet has had location-independent working deeply rooted in its company DNA since its founding. The low code development approach and the digital workplace allow employees to be reached worldwide and to access all data at any time – working from home is just one of many use cases.
Freiburg, March 27, 2020.
The current situation is not just a stress test for society but also for the vast majority of companies – worldwide. This illustrates what experts have been saying for years: comprehensive digitalization is a decisive competitive advantage – now more than ever! While analog companies are currently having great difficulty in enabling their employees to work in any location, the employees at United Planet can switch to working from home in hours. At the same time, they don’t have to do without company data, their phone line, their emails or the internal communication tool ‘Intrexx Share’.
Consequently, the staff is still completely available to all customers, partners and interested parties and can continue to provide them with the product and service quality that they are used to from United Planet.
Low code development and the digital workplace therefore are and remain two factors for success for companies that want to boldly face the challenges of digitalization and safeguard – even in difficult times – their competitiveness.
Because one thing is certain: Only companies that are well-positioned digitally have a chance of coming out of this time stronger and developing their market position further.
Employee health comes first
It was a deliberate decision from the management to send effectively all employees to their safe home office. In this way, United Planet plays its role in reducing social contacts to a minimum and therefore, in decelerating the spread of Corona. The health of all colleagues, their families and our customers has the top priority.
Short-time work is currently not on the cards for United Planet
Because the company and its data are completely digitalized, operations can be fully guaranteed. Short-time work is currently not a consideration at United Planet. Meetings with customers and prospective customers as well as internal meetings are being held via video conference.
As a result, all United Planet products and services continue to be available and can be used by customers and partners as usual.
