As Gütlich explains, "we started decentralising the workplace very early on. Mundus Agri is internationally networked, so that our partners in countries such as Turkey and the Ukraine can access important information and documents. Video chats with Microsoft Teams are as much a part of our daily work as sharing documents using cloud-based databases such as SharePoint."
Most employees started working from home around two weeks ago. "Software development, trade and accounting and editorial staff - nearly everyone is working from home," as Gütlich remarks. "Only a very people, who do not have the necessary network connections at home, still come to the office every day. Here we do, however, keep a distance to each other. Everyone basically has their own office. In addition, there are enough detergents and disinfectants available for everyone".
The support of customers and business partners is also of top priority. "We are doing everything to keep our business up and running and to provide our customers with the information and all the sales tools they need to trade. We are in the process of enlarging our portfolio. In addition to food and feed commodities, our customers are, for instance, now also able to trade goods with sell-by dates on Mundus Agri."
