We are living in unprecedented times. The rapid spread of the Coronavirus; COVID-19 in the past few months has changed our world dramatically. Due to which many of us are now required to stay at home to protect ourselves and others from the spread of the virus.
Nowadays, Businessmen are in dilemma like ‟How can my business bounce back?‟, ‟Should I continue with my business?‟, “What are the different strategies to be adopted for my business during COVID-19 lockdown?”, “How to Manage Finance Post-Corona?” and “How to Transform and Manage my Business to a Digital Business Post COVID-19?”
While many businesses are adopting various strategies and encouraging their customers to cope up with the Coronavirus crisis by using contactless payment and contactless marketing wherever possible in order to reduce the unnecessary contact between people during the virus outbreak.
Our Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi has highlighted the importance of social/physical distancing and urged people to not step out of their homes unless it is of extreme importance.
Basically, when a customer visits the shop for purchasing items then the customer has to face many problems like standing in long ques for billing that increases a person’s chances of being infected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Also, the customers ask for the price of different items, deals and discounts on the items at the billing counter.
Sometimes, the operator at the billing counter is unable to reply to queries of every customer due to which there are chances of losing those customers as they get frustrated and visits another shop to purchase the required items.
This also results in a loss in business as the businessman is unable to push their sales to another level because of losing the customers.
To make the whole process easier, My Shop QRID is helping us to fight back against COVID-19 by making the process contactless and digital.
In order to fight Corona Virus; Marg ERP has designed My Shop QRID to ease the life of 70-80% distributors who are operating in the bunch market and for those whose customers visit their shop by themselves.
