“By monitoring how organizations and businesses implement technology solutions, we have noticed that the gap between the speed and success of said solutions often does not derive solely from technological challenges, such as integration and security, but also from a lack of human skills.
At CoorB, we start by tackling legacy systems-related issues and employing advanced technologies. We then proactively tend to reduce the human skills gap, streamline processes, overcome efficiency barriers, and increase the success rate of technology adoption.” – Ahmed Gaber, CEO of CoorB.
