Brexit is set to become a reality, but its consequences have yet to truly materialize. Combined with the global pandemic forces many businesses at an intersection, leaving them to wonder: what now?
What’s certain is this: As a leader within your organization, you’re still legally accountable to investors for getting ready to stay in business after the Brexit transition ends. If you’re reading this, you’re likely in the same boat as many of our European customers.
HULFT’s most forward-thinking customers recognize that they cannot rely on politicians, suppliers, or government agencies to solve their business continuity challenges. They’re proactively laying the ground work to mitigate risks.
Here are some of the common scenarios we’re tackling as part of our “crisis command center for Brexit” remit:
- A customer is facing new logistics routes and needs to rent additional warehouses at different locations. Their staff is having to work in new ways and new places.
- A customer is anticipating business disruptions caused by supply chain delays (port congestion) or partners.
- A customer has multiple data centres across the EU, including the UK, and is preparing for a relocation of their data centres entirely.
Here’s how HULFT can aid your Brexit transition:
Launch new processes without additional headcount.
HULFT offers a broad range of enterprise automation solutions that can rapidly support new business processes and workflows so you can eliminate manual work and increase productivity without adding headcount. We work with you to understand current processes before making Brexit-related changes. While not Brexit-related, this 30-minute webinar explains how HULFT can incorporate business process automation into your organization without expensive system overhauls. Watch it here.
Meet supply chain compliance.
You’ll be under increasing pressure from governments and consumers to divulge more information about your supply chains and the lack of transparency can stop businesses cold. Not to mention the risk of logistics delays caused by new customs processes will create congestion at ports and airports. While we can’t eliminate the congestion, HULFT offers tactical track-and-trace solutions that help you identify the location of assets, vehicles, goods in transit, shipping containers, and more. Have you scrutinized where your organisation falls on the transparency continuum? Learn more here.
Consolidate your data, reconcile legacy with modern – without replacing a thing.
If a no-deal Brexit transpires and GDPR no longer applies, organisations will face a host of disruptions, one of them being data that is critical to the operation of many businesses. It’s critical for companies impacted by Brexit to evaluate where they house their data and ensure the data migration process is as smooth as possible. We’ll help you eliminate wasteful data, and reconcile systems and databases for better use – without ripping and replacing what you’ve already invested in.
Our 4-step migration plan is mapped to your specific requirements, deal or no deal:
- Understand and decide which data to move
- Understand your environment and requirements
- Prepare for the move
- Test and configure
As an enterprise business and technology leader, your job is to accelerate Brexit preparations by identifying the projects that are in play. Start with analyzing where internal and external uncertainty can pose high risks; then, select and deploy the right technologies to increase business agility and mitigate those risks.
