Gone are those days when it was enough for firms to own a website. As per the reports, 80% of the companies, which are both digitalisation and customer-centric were able to earn high revenue and enhance their brand's goodwill.

The utilisation of all key metrics of digitalisation-

·     online search via various mediums

·     analytical reports

·     e-commerce platforms

·     mobile apps

·     social media channels

A proper study and analysis of these metrics bring informative insights into firms' notice. The companies are more aware of their customer's needs and firms' market position.

Strong Leaders and Entrepreneurs

The Covid-19 crisis could be seen as a tunnel with a shine at the end. Wondering how? The business sectors were struck hard, the same persuaded entrepreneurs to do their best instead of outshine their survivor personality.

The crisis indeed produced a new generation of entrepreneurs, who were resilient enough to look out a challenge as an opportunity to get stronger. The private and government sector companies took advantage of comprehensive digital solutions to fight up with dropped sales, lost revenue margin, and many more negative impacts.

The success story of these businesses was manipulative enough to persuade those who have established companies in Dubai, to invest in modern technologies which is a solution to be more result-driven to the repercussions of the pandemic.
