Gabriel Tupula: Creative Problem Solver and Adaptable Leader
The technological innovations that will play an important role in shaping businesses in coming times are the time that these innovations take to deploy a certain solution. The shorter the duration of the implementation, the better it is in our modern and coming times. With the fast-moving industry, it is extremely important to be able to deploy the right tools in a convenient time frame (for example Slack and Zoom are both tools that go into that category).
Another important innovation is having access to solutions that allow users to manage change resistance. Being able to automate processes that can adapt to change will eliminate the constant need to manage every single operation… Having leadership in the organization with an innovative mindset is a great advantage. Big Bang ERP’s CEO Gabriel Tupula contributes to his organization with his innovative mindset. Gabriel leads by keeping up with the latest technologies, news, and trends to create better solutions for Big Bang’s clients.
