New hope for a new year
I sincerely wish everyone in the Hanwha Techwin family a happy and healthy New Year, and I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the holiday break.
The start of a new year is always an exciting time. It’s a chance to embrace new opportunities and envision new ways to collaborate and innovate. In 2020, we learned a great deal about ourselves and what we can accomplish when we work together.
I’m proud of the dedication you all demonstrated by successfully adapting to changing business conditions. Because of your efforts, we’re in a great position to build on our many successes from last year.
Hanwha Techwin solutions enabled exciting customer installations across many industries. We established strategic relationships. We launched new industry-defining products, including an entirely new series of COVID-related solutions that met our customers’ unique operating needs during a challenging time. These innovative solutions were developed to address short-term public health guidelines. But they also hold long-term potential for enhancing customer efficiencies by combining safety and health with traditional security and surveillance capabilities.
I encourage you to stay close to your customers, system integrators and channel partners. These relationships are vital to our growth. Talk to them often about their priorities and concerns. Keep them updated on our technology developments, product launches, webinars and announcements.
The same approach applies to our internal Hanwha family. It’s important we all support each other and remain empathetic to everyone’s different situation, especially as we all continue to operate remotely.
With our company’s resilient spirit, I’m hopeful about the tremendous potential in the months ahead for several reasons.
The increasing availability of effective vaccines means relief from this pandemic is in sight. From a technology perspective, new innovations in Artificial Intelligence, edge-based recording, cybersecurity and cloud-based platforms will help drive our business and our industry forward. You can read more about these exciting developments in this Hanwha Techwin trends report.
Let’s keep our positive momentum moving forward and make 2021 a successful year to remember.
