The remote work came overnight before we could really test how the work with the entire remote team would work. We had to find the necessary resources to face the new professional challenges and the new face of the professional environment, the new virtual and collective workspace.
The teams had to adapt to the new working conditions, and this also meant keeping and improving our distance communication and collaborative work skills, because at work everything became virtual - meetings with customers , daily or weekly meetings with the team, documents and even conversations with colleagues "in the hallway".
Business models are changing under the impact of new technologies, as well as other factors (economic, political, etc.). At the same time, companies have their own development strategies that involve innovation, market differentiation, higher profitability, attracting and retaining talent or social responsibility projects.

“Cash flow is King”. This is a reality that you need to pay special attention to, especially in times of crisis.
For all organizations, regardless of size or field of activity, cash flow management is a topic of maximum interest, the continuation and success of the business depending on it. A sudden economic change, such as the pandemic, can affect cash flow quite quickly, which is why business people need to be prepared with the necessary tools to help them overcome any problem related to an unstable cash flow.
Regardless of the size of the company or the field in which it operates, there are repetitive operations and tasks, such as standardized emails / notifications, reports, invoices.

BITSoftware supports Romanian companies in accessing external financing for digitalization and automation
Although in Romania the IT sector is in a continuous expansion, our country is one of the last places in the European Union in terms of digitalization.
