How Sebastian is building a better working world

Due to standardizing and automating processes and manual activities, his team reduced a client’s emails by more than 8,000 and standard PowerPoint reports by more than 150 in just three months — using only one digital platform that the team has implemented as one complete transformation process. This shows how important it is to rely on new technologies to position transformation on “digital feet” for the future.
