21 Gumption Group solutions to challenges society faces in 2021

Jana Wuyts

When written both in Chinese as in Japanese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters. One represents ‘danger’, the other ’opportunity’. A crisis creates opportunities. Entrepreneurs help make the difference. Our businesses certainly did. With great verve. It’s no coincidence that the word emerge and emergency are related linguistically. Here are 21 solutions to challenges society faces in 2021.  

  • Secure teleworking?
    Provide good collaboration tools. Put anything that needs to be accessible to everyone in the cloud. And, it’s important to ensure security. Rank 1 combines solid technology with tailor-made service.
  • Cost saving?
    Compiling a list of cost-savings is the easy part. But deciding where and how to save costs requires expert know-how. Just ask valueXstream.
  • Motivated healthcare workers?
    Healthcare workers are running on empty. With good organisation and by paying attention to what goes on on the shop floor, you can make a difference. EGHT Care places nurses and helps the healthcare sector grow.
  • Reopening of restaurants and bars?
    With restaurants and bars reopened, extra terrace space can help make up for lost income. Requesting a pavement café licence is easy with Geosparc’s Spotbooking tool.
  • What impact does the pandemic have on my organisation?
    Operational efficiency and cashflow optimisation are top of mind. With business intelligence & analytics, Bmatix helps identify inefficiencies and improve cost efficiency.

  • Social distancing?
    Maggy helps maintain social distancing in the 1.5-metre economy. The small portable device makes a warning sound when you get too close to people.
  • Shift towards e-mobility?
    How to accelerate your transition to a low CO2-emission fleet? Combine reliable charging infrastructure with a unique management platform. CenEnergy and Geosparc ensure that your infrastructure is easily manageable, and your parking policy is enforceable - giving you an optimal ROI.
  • Welcoming back fans?
    Being able to watch our favourite teams live again seems like twice the fun. With the iXpole platform, clubs will make VIPs even more happy.
  • A winning online experience?
    Oddball helps businesses give clients a premium online experience, resulting in repeat custom. With a mix of behavioural science, creative design and data analysis.
  • Organising e-commerce?
    The coronavirus has fuelled e-commerce further, both in B2B and B2C. TheValueChain and V-Chain focus on end-to-end customer experience (CX) solutions by SAP.

  • Digital strategy for SMEs?
    V-Chain provides the right tools for SMEs to help them face today's challenges, such as the transition to e-commerce and the evolution towards faster, cheaper and more sustainable.
  • Smart integration of systems for better business?
    Connectivity is the foundation of any digital transformation. AppyThings provides smart data and functionality integrations through API management, streaming and events.
  • Software quality that makes happy customers?
    Once upon a time, extensive digitization was the playing field of the big boys. Today, many SMEs follow suit. The importance of software testing is growing. No quality? No happy customers! Just ask Brightest.
  • Avoiding stock shortages?
    These days, the significant interdependence of global supply chains is a major challenge for supply chain managers. valueXstream makes your supply chain resilient.
  • Signal boosting while minimizing health risk?

  • To the cloud or on-premise?

  • Using new digital technologies?
