The new school year starts today in Belgium in physical classrooms. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic remaining volatile, we cannot predict how long this will last. Fortunately, experiences with online learning over the past few months have been largely positive, making it possible for education to continue at home. B2B companies are also recognising that online training is a great way to help their employees build knowledge anywhere, anytime.
Many of you are already familiar with Vintage’s expertise in developing business-critical and interactive tools and applications. But what about clients who already have multiple applications and websites in place? The good news is that, as well as building new platforms, we specialise in integrating them with the existing setup in order to streamline our clients’ workflows and save them time and costs.
B2B companies are now also more and more aware of the high impact that social media have if they want to grow their business and generate new leads. Social media are therefore rapidly evolving to a standard and necessary tool in B2B marketing. However, many companies are still not making optimum use of these valuable platforms.
For most companies, creating an annual report is a mandatory and sometimes onerous task, resulting in a weighty document filled with dense text. And, unfortunately, for many busy board members, stakeholders and partners, it’s a document that can easily get buried under the pile of paper on their desk, only to be dipped into when they have a little spare time or need specific information. But there is a better approach! An interactive, online report is a much more dynamic and satisfying experience for both its creators and its readers.
The ongoing pandemic has led to the cancellation of all kinds of events worldwide. From local product launches to international trade shows, the event calendar for the coming months is limited, perhaps even empty, with no clear view on how long this situation will last. Many people are also reluctant to visit showrooms, making it difficult for B2B companies to see customers and partners in person and demonstrate products.
Online business, particularly sales activities, was already growing before the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdowns across the world further accelerated the trend. 24/7 online availability is now a necessity for most companies. Vintage is experienced in developing and facilitating applications that provide consistent service for our clients’ customers and employees from any location, at any time.
Yes, you could say I’m pretty ‘vintage’ after 20 years at Vintage Productions… I still remember that first day at the gate in the Rodestraat. Recovering from a reverse culture shock as I had just returned to Belgium after living in Mexico for 3 years. So 20 years have passed since then. The cliché is true: time flies when you are having fun!
