Embracing The “New Normal”: The Advent of Digital Technology

01 Jun 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic necessitates a “new normal” wherein people need to adapt to several changes, and/or make behavioral ones. “New normal” can be defined as a variety of contexts implying that something which was previously considered unusual has now become a commonplace. This may mean living in post-pandemic will be altered— from work, home, and social life.


As we are dealing with the changes brought by COVID-19, new guidelines or regulations are being designed and will be imposed in place, most of which will affect on how we do things around. These aim to lower the risk of infection, as we’re slowly getting our lives back, while COVID-19 remains active on our environment.


Under this scheme, people are allowed to go outside and buy their necessities in the marketplaces, retail stores, and such, with strict observance of the “new normal” regulations. With this, it becomes obvious that the heightened measures for health will force us new work conditions— from physical setups, operational procedures, and even employment numbers. Considering that the virus is primarily a human-to-human transmission, people have to deal with a way of living that is cautious about physical interactions.


What most people refer to as the “new normal” is the emergence of the advantage of digital technology in keeping our daily operations going. In this blog, Inewvation International listed down some of its “must-have” innovative solutions for business to serve their customers better, meeting the “new normal” standards.
