Dealing with Covid-19 stress
It is not until times get tough that we realize how important things are we have always taken for granted. Customers and sellers are finding it hard to manage the increasing demand and uncertainty of the availability of essential products. We see people standing in long queues, their carts filled with goods to last them for weeks or even months.
Despite the danger of Coronavirus being spread, people are visiting grocery stores and supermarkets in dozens and even hundreds. It has come to the point where those who wait for the crowd to disperse are finding empty shelves in the stores. So how do stores manage in such times? They have to keep track of the inventory, ensure the billing process is fast, and most importantly find a way to help customers buy the required products from home.
There is need to fulfill increased demand
The big names in eCommerce have gone out of stock and are not able to deliver products. It falls on the grocery stores to keep up with the demands of the customers. And it has to be done without breaking the rules of the lock-down or risking the lives of people in this pandemic.
