A lot has changed. We are finding that our customers are continuing to become more connected and global. Our customers want to be where their customers are, just as we want to be where our customers are.
Customers, especially the younger ones, first get information on the Internet before calling a supplier or seeking advice in person on site. In that respect, our working environment has also changed. But it has improved, too. Drives are projected and requested with our STOBER Configurator, we do conferences on video platforms or commissioning on remote maintenance systems – so we’re on the road less and have more time for the customers. From an ecological point of view, it also makes more sense.
Another aspect of networking is our products: complex concepts such as safety technology, the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, and global data protocols are coming up more and more.
