Importance of Technology in the Face of a Qualitative Team Identity
MOTOR ASIN established ASIN ACADEMY with the slogan “It’s Worth the Education…”. Under the roof of ASIN ACADEMY, they organize educational events, trainings and seminars for all departments and colleagues, including management. They receive support from universities as well as well-known consulting firms which have specialized in their specific area of interest with the headings of personal and institutional development.
ASIN ACADEMY was created with a deep understanding of belief in education and aims to move MOTOR ASIN’s workforce and management team in the direction of a more qualitative ‘Team Identity’.
“Contemporary business models do not, any more, give credence to the concept where personal achievements tend to shine out more. Therefore, we are compelled to prepare ourselves for more learning, more education and possession of an understanding which is open to continuous progress.
Another fact which cannot be left out, for the success of team-work models is the necessity to utilise the technology in order to make efficient and secure use of ERP(enterprise resource planning) programs to where the stock, budgeting, planning, purchasing and selling tools and reporting units can also be integrated. Holding on to this awareness, we aim to keep all the departments and our co-workers up-to-date as a result of educational practices and we also would like to keep one step ahead in the market by investing specially on IT side of our business courageously.”
