The quarantine has come to an end and Denmark is slowly starting to reopen. After two months at our home offices, the office at Bredgade is almost running on full steam again.
Even though it has been two very different months it has also been two educational months. The coronavirus has created opportunities and made it possible to rethink workflows and processes.
It's great to see all the familiar faces again and just being able to eat a nice lunch with a colleague feels splendid. We are also welcoming new colleges as we continue to grow and as a result of this, we're looking into options about expanding the office.
Most of us have already moved our workstations from home to the office at Bredgade and we're all adjusting to the everyday life of a post-pandemic world.
We hope that everybody has gotten through the pandemic without too many challenges and is safe and healthy.
The annual EGR Power Affiliates has been announced and we are happy to announce that we rank 17th this year!
EGR Power Affiliates 2020 shines a light on the 25 most successful affiliate businesses in the global gambling industry and evaluates each company in five specific areas, including commercial success, appetite for M&A and compliance procedures.
This year has been challenging so far, not just for us but for iGaming companies around the world. Increased regulations affecting some of our key markets and a new Google algorithm are just some of the obstacles that have come our way, not to mention a health crisis affecting large parts of the world. Regardless, we have been able to adjust and thrive.
We are very proud of all our colleagues who have made this achievement possible. We are always ready for new challenges and are thrilled to see where the next journey will take us.
COVID-19 has taken its toll on global society. In Denmark, the government is doing what they can to stop the virus from spreading and has chosen to prolong the already existing quarantine until the 13th of April. This also means that Traffic Lab’s office at Bredgade will remain closed and we will continue working from home.
By now we have been working from home for two weeks and the whole situation taken into account, we are doing very well. It has been comforting to experience how our organization continues to function despite the new surroundings, and so far there haven't been a problem that we have not been able to solve.
Most of us have already moved our workstations from Bredgade to our home to get as comfortable as possible. We are in good spirit, open for business, and ready for another two weeks of home office.
We hope that every part of the world will do their job to help bring this pandemic under control.
As of 11.03.2020, there were 514 cases of contamination with Covid-19 in Denmark. In light of this, the Danish Government has issued guidelines to prevent further spread of the virus. As of now, the guidelines have the following impact on the public:
Following the recommendations of the Danish Government, Traffic Lab’s office at Bredgade will be shutting down from 12.03.20 to 30.03.20. We continue working from our homes and follow the latest developments.
Fortunately for us, we’re a digital business, and thus in no way as affected as many other Danish businesses are. The majority of us will be able to continue work without any serious obstructions, and we expect to be as responsive as always to our business partners.
We hope that we can all help each other bring this pandemic under control very soon.
Stay healthy everyone!
