Why you need to digitally transform your business to survive in the post Covid-19 world.
March 16, 2021
A year after the World Health Organization declared COVID 19 a global pandemic, many companies continue to work remotely to limit the spread of the disease. Organizations that had never offered remote work options are considering shutting down their offices, or at the very least downsizing them. When will remote workers go back to the office and what will that look like when it does eventually happen? Many employees are reporting that they prefer remote work, or at the very least, would like the option to work from home and remotely when and if they are required to return to the office.
But what does this mean for the future of businesses and entire industries? Many of the collaboration tools that have emerged during the pandemic will remain critical to business operations, even upon a return to office environments. While we wait for this to happen, new tools and software applications continue to present themselves as alternatives in our New Normal. A solution that existed pre-COVID, the B2B ecommerce sales platform for wholesalers, Trenza, has now become critical to small, medium, and large fashion apparel businesses that used to rely on trade shows, in person showroom meetings, and market weeks. With travel and in-person meetings limited, these businesses have been forced to find new ways to collaborate with their partners near and far.
A handful of innovators had already started to use this B2B sales tool (also referred to as a virtual showroom) prior to business shutdowns and were well positioned to capitalize on digital sales that allowed their sales force, buyers and end-consumers to connect in the early days of this global pandemic. Now, a year later, ecommerce solutions have become essential to running their business, and will no doubt become a mainstay.
New digital technologies allow your business to save time and money, and early adopters will likely continue to do business remotely, online. When work habits have been forced to change for such an extended period, new habits have developed. It begs the question if tradeshows will still exist and whether companies will look to cut their travel budgets in favour of new technologies. If you have not already adopted digital platforms for sales, here are the many benefits of using Trenza to reach your buyers and end consumers:
- The convenience of selling remotely allows your sales force, buyers, and customer base to access the platform 24/7, from anywhere.
- Expand your global reach by making your showroom available digitally.
- Reduce the cost of travel, trade shows, maintaining showrooms and the printing of catalogs.
- Stay current and competitive in a wholesale environment that is going digital.
The Trenza suite of products will help to enable your sales experience, will expand your brand presence and reach, and save your clients time and money in a world where travel and meetings are limited. The Customer Experience will be greatly improved with our simple and effective web sales platform, connected to the Momentis ERP, which allows for real-time, accurate data and efficient transactions. The platform will let your Brand shine with your unique imagery, helping to position your company as a leader in the marketplace, remaining relevant and competitive in a digital-first world.
