It is generally accepted that we are facing an unprecedented situation, with all that it entails. One of the most immediate challenges for businesses across sectors was to enable a mass transition to remote working due to the pandemic. The real nature of the challenge was not remote working itself, but the scale and speed at which it had to be adopted whilst always keeping abreast with best practises and high quality standards. For Tabs And Spaces, the biggest non-software development agency in the country, things came rather easy. Our development teams were able to cope with the transition seamlessly.
The very nature of our work involves the utilisation of web-based platforms for communication, project management and coordination whilst in essence working in a digital world, thus our teams were able to switch over from working at the office to working at home with minimal in-person contact as soon as the situation required to do so.
As a matter of fact, we have been one of the first companies in the country to adopt a remote work scheme and we have been working remotely since March 9, 2020. At the time of writing, we have no plan in sight to return to the office. From a business development perspective, it is generally accepted that Cyprus and Cypriots businesses in general had been lacking in the digital field compared to more technically-advanced countries.
In our point–of–view there is a significant rise of interest in the digital sector, as businesses have been speeding up their digital transformation in order to keep up with the ever-changing environment, allowing us to capitalise on the opportunity. We have seen significant interest in our range of services, and our teams are currently working at full capacity in order to accommodate the various requests we have been receiving.
We have experienced a notable rise of interest in our web development services, with the forefront being, of course, eCommerce and online shopping in general. Companies within the retail sector, food & beverage, even the services sector are striving to establish a strong digital presence, whether that means a website to stand out from the crowd and inaugurate an online presence, marketing oriented pages for lead generation, and fully fledged eCommerce stores integrated into the backbone of the given business. Keeping an open communication with current customers and instituting means of generating new sales and customers are the main objective throughout. We have seen a shift of budgets relating to traditional means and ways of operation towards digital.
We strongly believe that the spread of COVID and the unprecedented situation we are called to contend with, has forcefully displaced the "old" standards deeming this the beginning of a new digital era, impacting and abrupting the way of business we have all adhered to up to this point.
Digital is the new kid on the block and is here to stay. They say that 30 days is long enough to create a new habit and we've been way past the 30 days mark.
The fear of uncertainty, doubt of the future and a possible return to the restrictive measures within the next few months or even years will act as the ultimate force of maintaining the new status-quo.
