Özcan: "We accelerated our test processes with digitalization"
Speaking about the subject, OTAM General Manager Ekrem Özcan said, “As OTAM, we carry out tests for R&D, testing and certification studies before production. We have recently taken many important steps to speed up our testing processes. In addition to providing service in three shifts, we enable both our customers and our colleagues who continue to work from home to carry out their work easily without coming to OTAM with the Augmented Reality Platform and Remote Management Applications we have implemented last year. "We are preventing the pandemic from slowing down our testing processes and accelerating them with this application we have implemented and our competent staff in the field.
55 percent increase in turnover despite the pandemic
“In this way, we receive test requests not only from domestic but also from Europe. Italy is one of the countries we provide testing services. With the business we have bought from abroad, we have increased our turnover by 55 percent as of the end of August compared to the same period last year. I would like to express my gratitude to the Italian company managers who chose us in the test studies and to our competent staff who successfully carried out the tests ”.
