Coronavirus pandemic makes 2020 the year of digitalization

When 2020 began, none of us could have imagined that a virus would turn life as we know it completely upside down. The coronavirus pandemic has brought huge changes in the world – not just in the industry. We have been amazed by the possibilities presented to us by digital technologies. Here at TDM too, our internal operations have made a huge shift to digitalization. The pandemic relocated the workplace to our own four walls, virtually overnight. Team meetings, coordination, workflows – it all happens online now.

This forced reorganization  has brought some benefits with it. Our employees have learned to use the available solutions more efficiently. Applications and functions have been rediscovered and incorporated into the daily workflow. Bringing the workplace into our homes does of course have its advantages and disadvantages. Some co-workers report that they work much more efficiently and are more focused at home. Nevertheless, they feel the absence of the chats by the coffee machine, the spontaneous discussions in the corridor and the creative input that comes from eating lunch together or from simply working side by side.

Digital sales – virtual information events attract great interest

The sales sector in particular has been transformed by the pandemic. Customer meetings and partner site visits had been part and parcel for many TDM Sales Managers, and were quickly moved online. Digital alternatives had to be created for canceled trade shows: Our new series of webinars has been met with much interest. Practical topics explained by our experts, detailed information and the chance to ask questions without making a commitment – these benefits were appreciated by potential and existing TDM customers alike. Even our annual user group meeting was hosted online in a series of webinars. The video recordings of the webinars are still available to watch online.

Delivering services – projects completed remotely

As a result of the pandemic, our services have largely been performed digitally. This meant the major expansion of our remote services, completed around two years ago, really came into its own. It has allowed us to maintain or adjust software even now we are working from home. With our customers' support, the software can even be installed and commissioned remotely. As of this year, the work of our service expert teams is now based on the new TDM Flex Care Credit System. Customers who have bought credits are free to redeem these as they wish, whether by asking questions or requesting conventional services, advice or support. Another area of digitalization is the new TDM Maintenance Contract Plus: This allows service requests to be processed entirely online. In the TDM Customer Portal users can exchange and manage service tickets and view their current status, access learning content from the TDM Virtual Academy, participate in webinars and get self-help assistance, for example by means of a detailed FAQ.

Co-operations, partnerships and networking

Even in this challenging year, TDM Systems has continued to expand and strengthen its working partnerships. Through our many opportunities to integrate, we have remained an integral feature in the system landscape of machining companies. We were able to set up numerous new Sales Partners around the world. In particular, our focus was on North America, Europe and Asia, including the key markets of China and India. The TDM service offering for customers in China is being expanded by our partner of many years, Tedan in Shanghai. Furthermore, we have formed a technology and sales partnership with DMG MORI and are now a SIEMENS Technology Partner for Digital Tool Management.

2021 – Save costs and streamline processes through digitalization

Digitalization projects have now become a hugely important consideration for the wider public. That's why Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is supporting investment in digital technologies and training in German companies through the "Digital Jetzt" ("Digital Now") subsidy program. You'll be pleased to know that TDM software solutions are 100% eligible for subsidy funding. Get in touch, and we'll be happy to tell you more.
