Newsletter 2021 - 1st edition


It’s hard to believe what 2020 prepared for us. And while most people are happy that year is over, there have been some silver linings which are worth celebrating.

We are happy to see the transformations and developments we have all made at ZOOMFAB. The way we were able to adapt I would proudly call inspiring.Despite the difficulties, we had a year of many successes, making us optimistic to look towards 2021 with anticipation and excitement.

I am glad you are interested to join us on our journey.
 

 

How to maintain planned productivity with less staff?

One of the most satisfying experiences of 2020 was to see ZOOMFAB® helping our clients copying with emergency arrangements in their factories during the peak of Covid-19 outbreak.

To manage a business which is operating at reduced staff levels and with management often working remotely, under normal circumstances it would be a serious challenge to maintain planned productivity and profitability.

The majority of our customers have been reporting the ability to maintain normal factory outputs with 80% or less of their staff.
