Label Shimbun, a respected industry newspaper from Japan, praised Cymmetrik for its implementations against the COVID-19 epidemic. It even published a special report, entitled “Facing Crisis in Today's World”, where it talks about the keys to success in the fight against COVID-19, as well as consumer trends and business opportunities that the pandemic might bring. Key points from the report are as follows:
Timely Response, the Key to Success in Epidemic Prevention
As Cymmetrik General Manager Alex Mei explained, even as COVID-19 became news, Cymmetrik's management quickly took action and established an Emergency Response Team. The team closely monitored the pandemic, quickly planned out protective strategies, and implemented the measures throughout the company. As a result, no Cymmetrik employee ever fell prey to the disease, production and services never skipped a beat, printing applications and value-added services kept going, and customers were satisfied and happy.
New Norm, New Opportunities
Mr. Mei says that the pandemic has greatly changed how consumers live their lives. Anti-epidemic measures would speed the trend towards online purchasing, creating more related products and services along the way. E-commerce is set to grow against the trend, and brands desperately need to enhance the looks of their packaging to make them appeal to more consumer groups and be more competitive on the online market.
Knowing how to connect data to services has become mandatory education in this digital age. Merging cloud platforms and print technology, UID (unique ID) services are an effective solution that can help brands manage the data that consumers leave through online shopping. Brands can then analyze consumer behavior and turn such data into valuable digital assets. In addition, printing is set to become an essential part of the medical industry for quarantine, treatment, and temperature monitoring. From both technical development and product application standpoints, significant growth awaits printing.
Full Production Capacity and Transnational Master Planning
To satisfy client needs and provide the timeliest services, Cymmetrik continues to expand its presence in and outside of Taiwan, focusing ever more on advancing the state of print technology. Assistant General Manager Donald Liao reveals that Cymmetrik’s Shanghai Plant has equipped itself with the industry's most cutting-edge soft print and digital printing facilities. Cymmetrik's focus on innovation and development also lead itself to continuous improvements in material and color management, and to ever more exquisite printing. Together, these allow Cymmetrik to provide superlative products and the finest services to its its corporate customers.
Throughout its half-century history, Cymmetrik has seen itself through seasons and vicissitudes. As COVID-19 topples the world like never before, Cymmetrik marches on in the face of this crisis—and its accompanying extremes in economic uncertainty. It marches to the beat of realizing its mission, to the sound of making wishes come true, and to the persistence of its people-first, customer-centric beliefs. With every employee moving in the same direction, thinking the same things. This has allowed Cymmetrik to react quickly, take measures swiftly, and respond to market needs. So, as the shadow of this pandemic blankets the Earth, Cymmetrik walks the same footsteps and maintains its pace, to “embellish products and enrich life”, to “become the world leader in value-added services and applied printing.”
