With years passing, his passion grew as he started reading and self-learning, and he decided to pursue his passion. He completed his education in Computer Science at Swansea University, and later to add to the skillset he pursued an MBA.
Moreover, to keep up with the market trends and predict them, Mohamed pursued a diploma in Marketing from the American University in Cairo and a diploma in Artificial Intelligence from Oxford. He has a distinct perspective for the entrepreneurial life and says, “When you’re your own boss, it’s very different from working for someone else—as you’ll be working towards your dream and passion.

In response to the challenges posed by the pandemic, he shared “We tried to think out-of-the-box to provide unique solutions to our clients.” Mohamed and his team are introducing initiatives like the sanitizing gates, thermal cameras, smart helmets, virtual meeting rooms, and e-signature solutions.

Welfare of Employees Is Priority
Mohamed shares that working remotely is the safest course of action during the pandemic. “While this is the safest course of action during the pandemic, it does inhibit collaborative efforts and opportunities for hands-on training,” says Mohamed. He anticipates that soon enough the drawbacks of remote working will become clearer for enterprises and they will look for ways to smooth disruptions for employees. Due to this, technologies like VR will gain popularity. Companies will be seen adopting technologies like video conferencing for smooth workflow amongst the employees.
A business cannot survive without people and taking care of their welfare is the responsibility of the leader. Mohamed apprehends that COVID has fared to have adverse mental and financial affects and currently it is important to pay attention to the employees and his clients.

Amid crisis, the team of Potensia Systems has changed the logistics, transportation, supply chain, purchasing, and workflow. He further shares, “Technology has helped us to serve our clients either on maintaining their business running and providing solutions that could help in identifying unnormal human temperature and sanitizing solutions.”
It is assumed that the pandemic will leave the world with many startling challenges and life after COVID-19 will not be the same as before. Mohamed anticipates that the normal new world strategy will be implemented, and advices to change the mindsets and adapt to the new changes.
