How are you going to ensure your company makes it through this epidemic intact? And when this passes, how are you going to ensure your company is at the forefront riding the wave of opportunities that the recovery will bring? For many companies it will require a remote solution. Demand has slumped, and continuing to pay staff when orders aren’t coming in like they used to is not economically viable. Using a team of talents in a country with much lower staffing costs could be the difference between a business recovering and a business going under. And when life returns to some kind of new normal, remote resources will position a business to take advantage of the opportunities recovery will bring.

The world is going through a crisis now unlike anything we have faced in our lifetimes. The coronavirus epidemic has now caused massive human suffering and brought economies to a near standstill. As the lockdowns drag on and reserves are drained, thousands of businesses are going to the wall and more still are struggling to stay afloat. Businesses that compete against you, rivals for the same market, are feeling the effects as much as you. And if they cannot recover quickly enough and you can, by taking advantage of remote resources, a once in a lifetime opportunity exists to expand your share of your market.

There are now hopefully the first signs of recovery. Social distancing and lockdowns have flattened the curve, and countries are starting to tentatively reopen their economies. Governments are providing loans to keep the economy going, and scientists have already begun vaccine trials in the UK. Humanity will get through this. Our resilience and resourcefulness will find a way and the economy and business will recover. Now is a time of great crisis, but ahead lies great opportunity.

Remote Resources To Protect Your Business

Your company has certain fixed costs. Systems must be maintained, work must continue. But your overheads may well be greater than your income right now, paying high salaries to experienced talents with a reduced workload. What you need right now is to maintain productivity while conserving resources as carefully as possible. Replacing staff in your home country with a remote team can reduce staffing costs by up to 70% per employee.  That’s where we come in.

Vietnam’s Remote Resources To The Rescue

We’re based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. So far Vietnam has weathered the storm well, thanks to prompt action by the government. Having had near misses from the earlier SARS and H5N1 pandemics, the government in Vietnam learned its lesson and was ready for the coronavirus when it came. With such extensive business and cultural links to China, and a long border, the government knew it was in danger if prompt action wasn’t taken. They followed a model similar to the more celebrated one adopted in South Korea. Fearing a mass outbreak, cases were thoroughly monitored and people were placed in quarantine. People entering the country were checked. Unlike in South Korea, the government didn’t rely on mass test but on contact tracing, following the movements of confirmed patients and isolating those they had come into contact with. As a result, there have been, as of the end of April, just 270 confirmed cases, and the two week lockdown has just been lifted. The economy here is returning to normal, businesses are opening again.

With recovery Vietnam is now looking to help others. Shipments of protective medical equipment have been sent to the US, to Japan and to other countries. Factories are changing over to produce respirators or surgical masks and gowns. Vietnam is looking to help the world recover. And that includes our talents.

Vietnam didn’t wait until the virus had spread before taking action. It knew the danger was coming and took proactive steps and now the recovery is coming. Indeed, experts are predictive Vietnam will gain from this, as other businesses shift production from countries still hit by the epidemic here.

This recovery will be bringing opportunities. Take action now, and be ready for when restrictions are lifted. Let our Remote Resources be your solution to recovery.
