Pandemic Situation in Thailand with Seven Peaks Software

– by Bo Pedersen

A detailed summary from Seven Peaks Software

I conducted an interview with Bo Pedersen from Seven Peaks Software in Thailand to ask him some questions about the challenging times during the worldwide pandemic situation.

Timo Reinhardt

“First of all, I would like to know how you are doing during this time of a pandemic crisis?”

“After the first lockdown we haven’t had that many local infections and many “normal” activities became possible again. But, at the moment the infections go up again. So, let’s hope that we can get it under control together by wearing a mask, keeping distance from each other and by following the rules and measurements set by the government.” says Bo during April of 2020.

“What are the effects of the pandemic situation for Seven Peaks Software and how are you dealing with it?”

“Just like any other company we started working from home. This was something to get used to at first. Of course we have worked remotely before for 1 or maybe 2 days in a row. But now we had to work from home for multiple months. Luckily, we had experience with having online meetings as we have a lot of overseas clients. One thing that was actually an advantage for us was that we were going to move into a new office. So, by the time we we able to work at the office again we directly went into the new office.

Even though we were in this pandemic situation, we still had a lot of projects to work on. Actually, in the first half of the year, we had a 20% growth compared to last year. It wasn’t as high as we expected, but certainly very nice taking the COVID-19 situation into account and a lot of the other companies that were struggling and losing a lot of money.

The biggest struggle for us was that it was very difficult to hire new employees. Before the lockdown we hired about 5 new people per month, which came to a hold in the end of March. But, recently we have been able to continue hiring in the same pace as before the lockdown.” Bo answered.

“What is your opinion about the trends in the industry of your business?”

Timo Reinhardt

“What are the most important factors of customer engagement and satisfaction and did you notice any changes during the pandemic crisis era?”

Timo Reinhardt

“How do you think the company will look like in 10 years time?”

“I think we will rapidly grow as we have already noticed there is a high demand for our company’s services. We are also looking to expand into new markets and in 10 years time we will are hoping to have offices on multiple floors in The PARQ building. Our main goal is to maintain the industry leader status, which we will be working very hard for.” Bo proclaimed.

“Anything else to add?”

Conclusion

(pandemic situation overview)

It’s a challenging time for everyone during this ongoing pandemic situation. While daily lives around the world have been affected significantly, there are some lucky ones who were able to go on with their daily lives with minor regulations and measurements. Just like any other company, Seven Peaks Software encouraged work-from-home during the pandemic crisis. We still had a lot of projects to work on during the pandemic situation, and have recently been able to continue hiring at the same pace as before the lockdown. We are seeking to improve our services by hiring more employees to work on multiple projects for our clients. Our services range from software engineering, native mobile app development, cloud solutions, UX/UI design, quality assurance testing, digital marketing analytics, and digital media marketing.

During the pandemic situation, our growth had been better than expected. At our current stage, we plan to hire more professionals so we can accept more opportunities to serve more clients. Therefore, we would not have to refuse to take an opportunity from clients due to lack of employees ever again. In addition, this also shows that many companies are interested in our services, so our plan in the near future is to grow our Seven Peaks Software family.
