This pandemic has had an immediate and long-term impact on small businesses. From isolation to restrictions to social distancing, small business owners have had to adapt and find solutions to keep their business.
Digital channels are becoming the new norm. For example, local farmers have embraced digital technologies as a way to sell products directly.
A positive trend of this new standard is support for small local businesses. People are looking for local and independent businesses. Many social media campaigns are dedicated to local shopping and the hashtags #supportlocalbusiness or #shoplocal are trending.
We at GPCoders are here to support you and help you keep your business open by offering solutions that fit your needs.
Restaurants: Stay open and continue serving customers with online orders
The hotel industry is among the sectors most affected by multiple blockades and strict guidelines.
Create an app to keep your restaurant open:
Offer online orders with local pickup and delivery options.
With online or offline payment options, your customers will still be able to enjoy their favorite dishes.
As experienced by our customers, a custom android app will also help you reach new customers and can become your main source of traffic.
Grocery Stores: Serving the local community with local delivery and Click and Collect
As restaurants closed, online grocery stores saw a surge in sales. Create an app for your store and become a point of reference for the local community. With "Local delivery" and "Click and collect", you can offer a solution that allows your customers to receive their order safely while respecting the social distance.
Resellers: Don't miss the big end-of-year commercial events.
With the "Click and collect" offer, your customers will be able to securely collect their order in your store while respecting the social distancing guidelines
With local delivery, you can improve the customer experience: no long waits or delays due to Covid19, which lengthened shipping times.
A built-in discount coupon system can help you create campaigns for big business events like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and year-end holidays.
And, of course, secure online payment options.
