COVID-19 has forced businesses to radically change the way they do business. Retailers can learn a few lessons from the situation to ensure they emerge with the knowledge and tools to thrive should another unforeseen incident like this ever re-occur. Now is the time to think about making the retail company future-proof for the modern world that awaits. Below are some of the main areas you should be planning for.
It’s imperative to move operations online. By the end of the year, e-commerce sales are projected to comprise more than 15 percent of worldwide retail sales. There are different explanations for this. Most importantly, consumers have the freedom to make transactions day and night regardless of the time of day. However, as this global pandemic has demonstrated, an e-commerce store enables consumers to continue accessing the goods and services of many retail businesses.
Thankfully, launching an e-commerce store is simple, especially if you have a modern point of sale (POS) system. With a cloud-based solution, you can easily keep track of essentials such as product inventory, receive online orders, and direct them to the correct department or staff. Real-time reporting features mean better decision making while contact-less payment makes transactions safer for everyone using a customer’s preferred payment method.
