This year has been like no other in our living memory. Even aside from the obvious tragic toll on health, COVID-19 has created many challenges. Below are some of the key milestones achieved by the DB Results community. These provide a feeling for the challenges undertaken and results delivered for our people, customers, partners and community, all while staying safe, doing the right thing for our community and leading the way in providing digital innovation.
Business as usual was replaced with working from home in 2020, starting in late January in Hong Kong, and mid-March in Australia, Philippines, Thailand, and in the United States. Around the globe, while adapting to WFH and constantly using Teams or Zoom, we still managed to keep on delivering great results for our customers throughout the year. Whether it has been quick digital projects or major project rescue programs, we have adapted very quickly and managed to collaborate, innovate, remain productive and constantly deliver in 2020, all while keeping our people, customers, and partners working in a safe environment.
In the spirit of wanting to do our part, and keeping true to our purpose of having a positive impact on Health, Environment, Lifestyle and Poverty for society, this year we’ve developed many applications that aim to offer support to the people and communities most affected by this year’s events. We developed MiOK, which gives individuals the tools to keep track of their own physical and emotional health and has now been taken up by many not-for-profit organisations for free, as well as supporting DB Results’ staff. Wellness+ is our organisational communication tool, providing a platform for centralised communication and resources. Most recently we’ve developed Melbourne Alive™, a secure QR code scanning app that helps you keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen as Melbourne continues to reopen, also provided free of charge to the community. (Versions are available for each capital city!)
In the world of digital business, we’ve delivered well over 100 systems and applications across the globe, for industries including banking, insurance, superannuation, travel, health, utilities, legal, retail, government, telco, manufacturers, distributors, infrastructure, land development, and aged care. It speaks to the quality of our team that so many customers put their faith in DB Results to deliver during one of the most tumultuous years in recent history. Our partnership with OutSystems low-code development platform has helped us to drive this digital acceleration.
As 2020 draws to a close, we really wanted to thank our customers, partners, and our people for your ongoing support and resilience, during a tough year. We would like to wish everyone, your partners and families a merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year as we look forward to a prosperous – and hopefully a COVID free time – during 2021!
