It’s quite often to hear a question like this from our client: Do you have an office in my city? If not, how do you work with a company in another country without having a face to face meeting? Whenever we discuss, the question of how AIMIR deals with long-distance communication and time difference keeps emerging every now and then. Since it may have concerned many clients who are willing to try our 3D rendering service. Today, we will have a further explanation of how we solve this problem and make it a win-win situation.
For nearly 10 years of development and evolvement of the Internet, unquestionably, it radically changes the way how we work and socialize. There’s no doubt that our lives have benefited from the technological innovations greatly as it brings more and more convenience. With that being said, working remotely is not a new topic. It’s gone viral early this year because of the outbreak of COVID -19. People are required to keep social distancing and work remotely to mitigate the risk of infection.

And when they are off work, we will work on the revision and update the drafts, for urgent cases, we could also communicate with clients at the time frame they feel comfortable with. This would be the ideal situation that we make good use of time and I hope it could ease your concerns.
