Automation & Adapting to a “ New Normal ”

2020 was quite the year. This past year has thrown a number of challenges our way, challenges that no one could have prepared us for.

COVID-19 has changed the way the world works. The virus has impacted how people interact and of course, how businesses continue to operate. With no clear end in sight, it’s safe to say that this new world of social distancing, reduced human interaction, minimized capacity, and mask wearing is our “new normal”. How can we continue to serve our customers and deliver great service? In order for businesses to succeed during this time, we all need to adapt to this new way of working. 

The virus has made it very difficult for businesses to remain open. If you were lucky enough to make it past that hurdle, operating your business was an even more difficult task. There are new health guidelines that must be followed and are constantly updated. Operating hours have been reduced. Many businesses had to make financial cuts to survive. With curve balls being constantly thrown our way, how can we ensure our operations continue to run smoothly? 

Remote site management and automation are more important now than ever before. With the need to limit human interaction, being able to manage operations remotely can make your job easier. 

Imagine being able to get an inside look into your operations without having to physically be at the store. You gain the ability to turn equipment on or off from anywhere and be alerted of operational abnormalities. Automation technologies such as wifi thermostats, energy management and lighting control systems connected to a cloud platform enable operators to obtain remote connectivity to all of their stores. While these are all great benefits in general, they are especially important right now. Remote site management can help you stay efficient while reducing human contact and associated costs.
