Well what a few weeks! But let us remain positive and plan for now. Some quick and casual concepts have worked hard to get some form of delivery and pick up in their businesses, to keep supply chains ticking over, some staff engaged, some revenue coming and some sanity. We know that at some point the social distancing must be relaxed and this will present more opportunities to generate some revenue. One day stores will get to re-open.
When sites closed, winter menus were still in operation and when you re-open there will be some menu changes needed – we want to make sure we are ready to help and support you with these, so please talk to us about this and other re-opening topics as soon as possible so that we can avoid any bottle necks when the rush to open happens.
Closed or part closed stores could actually offer you an opportunity to implement or update equipment and systems. Please be under no illusions – we know companies have little or no cash flow now, so proposing spending money could be seen as a little insensitive – However, we have discussed offering payment terms that are linked to a return of some form of business as usual with some clients already. We have in the past invested large sums in our customers to get them technologies they want. We feel it would just not be right to share our thoughts over possibilities, in case there are ideas and actions that could benefit and help you in the longer term.
Staff are of course, allowed to train, as long as it does not bring income into the business and they remain furloughed. The same is true for our staff and as such, we are using this time to offer to train more people aspects of our systems. Therefore, we would like to extend this offer to clients, free of charge. If you are interested in staff training on Centegra Plus stock management, Cash Management, Reporting and Setup, NCR Silver or Business Intelligence then please drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org (so that it reaches the relevant people who are of course, working remotely). When we have a view of who could be interested in topics we will either run webinars or individual training sessions.
Enough said from a top level, if you have some time please scan this document and contact us should any topic be of interest.
