Business leaders in most sectors were happy to see the back of 2020 and welcome 2021. The technology entrepreneur, Dave Antrobus of the Fresh Thinking Group, believes business leaders have been forced to accept the introduction of new technologies at a fast rate. The Fresh Thinking Group has always been willing to look for new technologies that can find ways of improving the business sector.
Productivity and the Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the evolution of the business sector into overdrive. The productivity of businesses in the manufacturing sector has been a concern as employees were left without the chance to work. The problem of medical issues damaging the productivity of several companies has led to the implementation of artificial intelligence and robots. The advance of the robotic workforce and the introduction of A.I. has increased productivity at a time when workers are struggling to attend work.
Alongside the introduction of artificial intelligence and robot workers, several companies have looked to use the pandemic as a time to move their operation to the Cloud. Prepackaged Cloud services are among the most popular options for business leaders wanting to improve their profitability. Dave Antrobus believes Cloud services will remain vital to the success of the business sector in the 21st-century.
Remote Working Cultures
Thye pandemic taught business leaders that several of their commonly held beliefs were myths. The implementation of the work-from-home culture has been one of the biggest takeaways from the COVID-19 pandemic. Dave Antrobus points to his own Fresh Thinking Group as a company that embraced the work-from-home culture. One of the reasons the majority of companies refused to accept the work-from-home culture was the fear that a full transition to working from home would take over a year for a medium-sized company. The pandemic forced business leaders to adopt strategies to transition to working from home in an average of 11 days. The lack of problems seen across the long-term adoption of working from home has allowed Dave Antrobus and the Fresh Thinking Group to realign their ideas.
Both companies and transport authorities have the potential to be affected by fluctuations in the number of commuters traveling each day. The work-from-home culture is here to stay and local lockdowns have caused concern for Dave Antrobus and the Fresh Thinking Group. Autonomous vehicles have a role to play in picking up the slack for commuters and completing deliveries.
