In the morning when you get into the office you have a quick stop for a coffee or some fresh juice from our lounge before heading to your desk.

While sipping away your coffee you quickly check your emails for any changes or issues that stands out or might be of a concern while planning your day ahead.

As your colleagues in Asia are busy ending their day you might give them a call for a quick catch up on their day. After catching up is done it is time to take care of any incidents, change request and tasks that have been logged in our ticketing system or perhaps continue working on some of our short-term and long-term projects.
