We strongly believe that we are all in the same boat and will get through this adversity together: Athbi Al-Enezi
[Kuwait – 20 April 2020]: JustClean, the leading laundry technology company in the GCC region, said that it is prepared to design research systems to assist the efforts exerted by the Governments across the region regarding their evaluation of the impacts of the current coronavirus pandemic. In addition to providing data showing consumer trends, concerns, and urgent requirements, JustClean is more than willing to highlight the main business challenges that are faced by the technology sector across the region.
Commenting on this, Athbi Al Enezi, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of JustClean, stated: “The GCC’s technology sector is facing difficulties that may have a lasting negative effect on businesses well beyond the span of the current coronavirus pandemic. We, in JustClean, understand the increasing pressures that the GCC governments are being placed under as they work tirelessly to support the economy under difficult circumstances.”
“We need to outline the main areas where technology companies need assistance in order to protect jobs, survive as businesses to support the economy’s recovery,” Al Enezi added.
For his part, JustClean’s Co-Founder and Managing Partner Nouri Al Enezi commented: “We appreciate the efforts that are being exerted by governmental and civil society bodies. From an operational point of view, we demand that home delivery businesses that adhere to health regulations be allowed to resume their work as normal during the curfew, particularly companies such as JustClean that have the fleet and personnel capacity to serve users 24/7, seven days a week”.
“We support the measures that now encourage national and expatriate consumers to use online services, availing themselves of the technological services that are being provided by governmental bodies. This will have a positive impact on all technology providers, as the e-transaction culture has become an integral part of daily life and is contributing to reshaping the way we will manage our lives in the future. By utilizing pioneers of the business sector and the experienced skill set they have obtained in their line of work, the government would be able to hear their suggestions and set forth the best action plan during this time and beyond.,” Nouri Al-Enezi added.
Regarding the lessons that are being learned and the challenges that are being faced, JustClean stated: “As the bulk of our staff is now working remotely, the empty space in our offices – with no rent relief available – imposes an additional financial burden that is being faced by us. This burden could be eased through the relaxation of employment regulations i.e. allowing work from home on a permanent or temporary term basis until normal business levels are restored”.
