Covid-19 Support

Monsoon Consulting has been taking proactive steps to help organisations respond to the current crisis so that their businesses can re-distribute their efforts and operations to service customers and companies online.

Five key take-aways:

  1. Think long term – The current climate is giving merchants a real need to appraise their online strategy. Whilst there is an urgent need to act now, the decisions should consider and incorporate the anticipated future trendsfor eCommerce, including customer demand for contactless home delivery and click & collect.
  2. Ownership – Make sure someone in your organisation takes ownership of any new eCommerce venture. Much like a new store or branch, the eCommerce site will be best run when someone owns it internally and works to agreed KPIs.
  3. Simplicity – It’s easy to be overwhelmed with the technology and terminology. However, keep things simple initially and take comfort in the fact that you can scale and grow the technology in line with your business and objectives.
  4. Transformation – A website isn’t just about online sales. It’s a new way of transforming your business and communicating with your clients, customers, suppliers and employees. eCommerce platforms, such as Magento Commerce, provide a full suite of services for business intelligence, CRM, product information, sales and marketing performance and content management.
  5. Scalability – If your site is being overwhelmed by new and sustained demand, there are a number of solutions that can help from virtual queuing software to mitigate web traffic peaks to proven resilient infrastructure & hosting solution
