During the Covid19 crisis, digital technology demonstrated its full potential by enabling us to continue some of our daily activities but also to provide better patient care.
However, companies in the sector are no less impacted by the crisis: 1 in 2 company managers are faced with requests for price renegotiations from their customers.
Questioned in the Syntec Numérique barometer, 80% of company directors anticipate an average drop in their forecast turnover of almost 20% over the second quarter of 2020. This estimate can be explained by the decrease in order intake forecasts from April to June 2020, which concerns 96% of respondents.
In an open letter also signed by TECH IN France, France Fintech and the Alliance Industrie du Futur, Syntec Numérique calls for massive investment by public authorities in the technologies and industry of the future (industrial internet, AI, 5G, robotisation...).
With the aim of accelerating the digitisation of the State and local authorities, these major technological projects are part of public procurement. The digital transformation of companies, and more particularly in industry, will require a massive effort to support productive investment. But also to place greater emphasis on education and training in these new methods and technologies.
A plan to better digitalise health, public services, administrations, schools and businesses while providing technical solutions to societal and environmental challenges.
The survey conducted by Syntec Numérique was sent online from 20 May to 1 June 2020 with 166 respondents. A panel of respondents including all professions and all sizes of companies. The distribution of the sample corresponds to the orders of magnitude of the digital sector represented by the union.
