Due to the pandemic, customers have increased pressure on providers to reduce costs, encouraging partners to take the path of business optimization and increase service transparency. Automation technologies and the search for affordable innovations do not leave the main agenda of market participants. However, international experts pointed out that the introduction of innovations in Russia is impeded by the low cost of personnel compared to Europe and the short term of contracts.
