Lars adds:” Being a global corporation based in Svendborg comes with its challenges. Because we do business with the types of organizations we do, there are even greater requirements in place for us. We work very hard to not only be worthy of those contracts, but to actually live up to them and then some. We have been certified by Anti Bribery and we have dedicated ourselves to a long list of charters in sustainability. All of this rubs off on the other parts of the business, even at home in Denmark. This makes us Best in Class in many areas.”
Presence is the key word
“We support our partners in standardizing and streamlining their IT-investments globally, but at the same time, we recognize that not all regions and countries are the same. This requires us to have insight into local customs to create the best possible customer experience for the end users” Mathias explains. “Sustainability is a strategical focus area for us and our presence in Asia supports this. Why must IT products that are manufactured in China be shipped to Denmark only to be sent back in the same direction to the end-user in the Philippines? Our new structure offers a more simple and far more sustainable solution. Through all of it, sustainability is the key word.”
As Lars also said, the service level is a central element in Danoffice IT’s new Asian hub, Mathias explains: “From an organizational standpoint, it makes sense. All our clients are global so out here, it turns into teamwork between our sales representatives and me and we have plans to hire more people. The first employee is already in place as Joline Wang will start on August 15th. She is Singaporean and will operate the orders and help with the administrative side of things."
Mathias adds: “After a year and a half, I moved to Switzerland and worked in our office down there. I really liked it, but when the opportunity presented itself to help create the Singapore office, I took the opportunity - also to develop the company and strengthen our business”. Therein Mathias confirms that a journey can be many things, if one seeks personal growth and travel, the opportunities are present within our organization.
At Danoffice IT, we now have the results of a gamble which will affect the rest of the corporation, and this is something our CEO knows full well: “I look forward to seeing how in our daily operations, we are getting closer to our customers who are so dependent upon us. I also look forward to developing our Singapore office so that more of our Danoffice IT co-workers, who desire to travel in their career in more ways than one, will have the opportunity to do so. Naturally, I am also looking forward to seeing this gamble affect our business – by decreasing the distances in our logistics and service in the Asian market, we will also be freeing up resources and streamlining in other areas” Lars Baun, CEO says in closing.
