The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant uncertainties, new risks and new opportunities for the global economy and society at all levels. The rapid digitalization of business, trade and life, especially remote working, distance education and shopping on digital platforms, has led to the widespread use of digital technologies. This period, called ‘’the new normal’’, has brought the data-driven economy to the forefront. Data collection, data analysis, creating value from data and data security have become even more important.

As 'KAT Mekatronik Ürünleri A.Ş.' family, we are very glad to share this success that biOnay, one of our group companies, has achieved by integrating with technology.
