MM 2020 Close and Our 2021 Plans
Here we are again at the end of the year but what an extraordinary year it has been. Every company’s supply chain has been hit hard with the lockdown restrictions, staff risks, customer conditions, liquidity, revenue, and overall economic decline. Some companies have been able to respond very well and thrive through 2020 and other are still reeling from the and trying to ensure their futures planning for 2021 and what possibilities that may bring.
If nothing else this year has proven that personal relationships between people is what got us up every morning, but data is what truly guided our decisions this year.
We have seen a massive uptake in BI and data usage right from the get-go when Covid-19 hit, and the lockdown started. Our statistics across customers reveal a 50% – 600% increase in usage that kicked off already in April 2020. This is phenomenal and the real question is why it took a pandemic with subsequent lockdowns to drive data-based decision making and operational improvements actively within every part of the business.
MM has been very fortunate to have been able to continue our business. We are fortunate that we have been able to assist some customers with payment holidays and other methods to support their own liquidity as well as ours. During this period, we have been very busy taking advantage of a “less busy” schedule for daily customer deliverables where we were able to allocate some time to realign our business to our new ways of working. Our new delivery model ensures we support our customers throughout their maturity growth.
We execute our New Ways Of Work (NWOW) on 11 January 2021.
What Is Planned For 2021?
We have realigned our practices to support our customer maturity levels which we are now able to monitor and manage as part of our data literacy methodology and services.
