How the Corona crisis accelerated remote working



In this episode of Kanaal Z's series 'never waste a good crisis' Andreas Creten, Founder & CEO of remote-first company Madewithlove discusses how engaged entrepreneurship with a digital approach runs in times of corona. Read all about it in this blog post below and don't forget to watch the video (dutch only).

Digital solutions

Madewithlove helps companies build scalable digital platforms. They take the technical side on us and make sure that a team on the side of the customer eventually takes over our work. The big difference with a normal agency is that they determine an exit strategy from day one. With their strong and experienced team, they are able to market digital platforms very quickly. The sooner they are superfluous themselves, the better they have done their job according to CEO Andreas Creten.

Madewithlove works primarily for corporate ventures, start-ups and scale-ups. They mainly kickstart projects, providing a shorter time to market. In this turbulent period, companies need to switch quickly to digital solutions. If you do not have the technical knowledge yourself, it is not a wise decision to build a technical team on an independent basis.

Certainly, in this period, companies need to quickly switch to digital solutions. If you don't have the technical knowledge in-house, it's not a good idea to try building a technical team yourself. In addition, the proof points of Madewithlove are about advising in make/buy decisions, helping to define the technical strategy and the ideal team setup. Once that right set is found, they build the product and leave when they have trained a team to take it over from them.

Senseful advice

Andreas Creten advises managers who were less prepared for this digital crisis never to rush. At one point there was great panic surrounding the corona crisis while building a robust digital platform requires time and expertise. User expectations have risen immensely over the past 5 years. As an organization you only have one chance to do it right and proper, don't waste this chance or the effort will be in vain.
