> In this quarantine situation in which we are called to stay at home, some retailers are trying to adapt and guarantee their customers the possibility of receiving the goods comfortably at home – so as to avoid gatherings at the points of sale.
Thus, the company Age Soft has decided to try to meet everyone, creating the free application Buy From Home . The latter is aimed at both traders and consumers, trying to give them the opportunity to sell / buy goods, even if the physical stores are currently closed, and in any case avoiding that the customer has to leave the house.
This is a way, according to the authors, to give continuity to the activities that are currently being closed, and not only: shops / restaurants can register their company on the app and set how, where and when they can bring products to customers’ homes. They will also be able to photograph the products to create their catalog , indicating price and availability.
Customers will instead be able to browse the products of the registered stores, also by contacting the sales point via chat or phone for elucidation, with the possibility of spending their money to help nearby activities, those that were addressed before the outbreak of the pandemic – whether it was the greengrocer near the house or the stationery for the notebooks necessary for their children.
The products that can be sold through Buy from Home are of several types: they range from basic necessities, including desserts in the pastry shop, cheeses at the dairy, cold cuts from the delicatessen or meat in the butcher shop, plants and gardening, clothes, perfumes, books, stationery or do-it-yourself, passing through IT, telephony, jewelry, appliances and never forgetting the food for our four-legged friends.
The application is available free on Play Store for Android and is coming soon also on App Store for iOS . We hope in turn that it can help small traders and their customers to meet even in this situation.
