For Siva Kumar, 28, a management professional working for a China-based cross-border e-commerce firm, seeing his fellow Chinese colleagues flying down to Bengaluru every month was a routine.
They visited Bengaluru for the company’s monthly review meetings. But since January, the travel restrictions placed across countries due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) scare have changed the way the company staff meet.
As his fellow colleagues could not travel to India from China, they all met in Malaysia in the first week of March. But little did they know that that face-to-face meeting was going to be the last one for at least the next two quarters.
Siva and his team now use DingTalk, an enterprise solution platform that supports virtual online meetings.
