WHAT IS THE MAIN FACTOR TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN DATA ARCHIVING INDUSTRY AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT?
In our industry original and innovative solutions are the key to achieveing success.To co-create a vanguard of business you have to be brave and also be ahead of reality. A little bit of madness and correctly understanding mechanisms of the transformation process are necessary.
CONSIDERING YOUR EXPERIENCE, DO YOU THINK THAT THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF BUSINESS MUST BE FOLLOWED BY A MENTAL TRANSFORMATION? IS THIS CHAPTER LEFT BEHIND US SOMEWHERE AT THE TURN OF THE 90’S AND 2000’S? HOW HAS ENTREPRENEURS’ THINKING IN THIS ASPECT EVOLVED?
Definitely yes. To take a step towards digital transformation, you must first undergo a mindset change, a mental approach. Entrepreneurs see the benefits of this process more and more often today. They are more open to changes and new things. They already know that transformation today means “to be or not to be” for many companies.
PIKA PROVIDES VERY DIVERSIFIED SERVICES, RANGING FROM PROFESSIONAL DESTRUCTION TO SPECIALIZED TOOLS FOR MANAGING HR AND PAYROLL DOCUMENTATION, THE SO-CALLED “DIGITAL PERSONAL FOLDER”. WHICH OF THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FROM THE COMPANY’S PORTFOLIO ARE THE MOST POPULAR?
Indeed, our services and solutions cover the entire process of intelligent information management. The aforementioned Digital Personal Folder, but virtually any data repository adapted to a given business model (Digital Patient Folder, Digital Client Folder) is today a desired product,sought by the market. Intelligent office service, i.e. the Digital Workflow, is also popular.
WHAT IS THE KEY TO EFFECTIVELY CARRY OUT THE PROCESS OF DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE COMPANY AND IMPLEMENT EFFECTIVE INFORMATION MANAGEMENT TOOLS?
You need the best solutions – intelligent systems and people, specialists who model the process with us. You also need to convince the entire organization, all employees,that it is worth it.You need to show the benefits of it.

We often show new opportunities, we are ahead of the companies’ thinking. We are not just service providers, but guides on the way to digital business.This puts Pika in a row of business visionaries, co-creators of the digital transformation path.
WHICH MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF PIKA’S DEVELOPMENT WOULD YOU DESCRIBE AS A BREAKTHROUGH?
A „milestone” for PIKA was the development of the company’s development strategy in 2001,which significantly changed both the structure and the direction of its operation. The next two steps are 2008,i.e.the construction of our own logistics and operational center in Gdańsk, and 2014 – the purchase of an IT company.
CAN YOU SAY SOMETHING, SHOW OFF PIKA’S FLAGSHIP PRODUCTIONS?
We pride ourselves on cooperation with the leaders of the energy, banking and logistics industries. We have successfully transferred these organizations – as a whole, but also for each individual user – into a new virtual dimension.
HOW DO YOU THINK NEW TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING DIGITAL BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION AND BROADLY UNDERSTOOD DIGITIZATION, HAVE AN IMPACT ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND BUILDING A GREEN DEAL?
We often repeat that it is important to us what kind of world we live in. We move business from paper information to the virtual, digital world. The processes of digital transformation really contribute to building a green deal.
IN MAY, PIKA CELEBRATES ITS JUBILEE – THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMPANY. HOW DO YOU EVALUATE THESE 30 YEARS AND WHAT ARE PIKA’S PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?
I am very pleased with this jubilee. These are 30 years of extraordinary experiences, meetings, but also business challenges. Today – in retrospect – you can see that it was worth it. We want to continue to set standards in the transformation process.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AND DREAMS RELATED TO THE COMPANY’S DEVELOPMENT AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE MANAGEMENT BOARD OF PIKA?
The dream of every CEO is the development of the company. For me, this development means reaching out into the unknown, looking for new solutions. Growth, then, means always being at the forefront of the digitization process.
