Businesses are Using This System to Stay Operational
As the current pandemic keeps spreading across the world, the nemesis has showered a massive catastrophe across industries and businesses.
The US economy is hugely affected, and the United Nations Conference Trade and Development (UNCTAD) on the 4th of March hints that export across the global value chain could decrease up to $50 billion. According to the National Association of Business Economics (NABE), the US was already in recession, and the US GDP will experience a 26.5% contraction in the second quarter. Growth will start to show up in the third quarter but with 12% unemployment.
Responding to the economic doldrums, many companies have opted for furlough. Several industries exposed to the risk of non-completion of the projects due to the lack of workforce.
Daniel Sun, the VP Analyst, Gartner, says, “Companies need to leverage a systematic approach to strengthen the resilience of their current business models to ensure their ongoing operation during COVID-19”.
Businesses’ Unique Challenges
While business continuity is a significant area to focus on now, companies are still clueless about getting a productive workforce to help in their projects.
The VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) has forecasted a 5% drop in the engineering products and services in 2020.
Many engineering firms across the US, Canada, and Western Europe have reported that the global pandemic has pushed them to adopt new systems that never availed before. Though the companies that have witnessed higher order intake in January 2020, they are expecting an 88% drop in the order values.
On the other hand, fighting the increasing uncertainty, businesses are in the utmost need of enormous, high-quality, well-analyzed, crunching data, market insights, analyzing trends, and making better decisions.
According to a study by Mckinsey, industries, and sectors who are spearheading and at the rear of the global crisis, like healthcare, telecom, grocery chains, are mainly counting on data in supporting the consumer needs in various ways and keeping the wheels of the economy turning. However, at present, there is a considerable gap between the demand for data and the skilled workforce to process it.
Even the IAB reported a grim scenario in the advertising sector after surveying 400 ad-buyers. In the media landscape, advertising and creative service have disappeared as another casualty due to the global business and economic shutdown.
The industry has witnessed colossal cancellation of campaigns, pausing of all advertising efforts, and shifted budgets. The sector has reported considerable challenges in finding remote workforces to work on the pending projects.
The unprecedented challenges in all sectors have called for temporary halts in services, postponement, and hold on the contracts.
