As many small businesses go into quarantine to slow the spread of COVID-19, many business owners are feeling the pinch. The cessation of movements, lockdowns, and state of emergency in many countries has put many small businesses and companies on life support. But there are still some businesses that are counting profits every day. To help you understand some of the measures small companies are putting in place to survive during the virus crisis, we will look at what Patchion LTD is doing.
What Patchion LTD is doing to keep running during COVID-19 crisis
Patchion LTD is a small company that offers embroidery services to companies and businesses that want to put patches and badges on their promotional products such as free T-shirts. The company was affected by the government restrictions put in place to reduce the spread of the COVID-19.
After realizing their sales were reducing, the company management had to act to keep the company running. As usual, every employer makes decisions based on market demands. Currently, there is a shortage of medical protective gear such as surgical masks, hospital clothing, surgical gowns, medical aprons, and surgical overalls. Doctors, nurses, and other health professionals need these products more than before to keep themselves safe from the virus. Governments are also asking their citizens to wear surgical masks to reduce the risk of spreading the virus to the people around them if they are infected and keep those that are not yet infected safe.
Due to the high demand for these medical protection gears, some doctors who don’t have access to them are exposing themselves to the virus when doing testing and offering support to the sick. Starting to produce some of these medical protective gear is a great way to help reduce the spread of the virus, save lives, and make it easier for us to go back to our normal lives.
1. Manufacturing and producing medical clothing
Patchion LTD is now manufacturing medical protective wears that are in huge demand and supplying them to hospitals. The company was able to make a swift change faster because it already had industrial embroidery and sewing machines. Your company may not be in the clothing industry, but you need to be creative and think of how you can use the production tools and equipment you already have to produce products that are currently on demand. You can repurpose the manufacturing to start making medical kits such as ventilators that are also in high demand in hospitals. By doing this, you will be saving lives, reducing unemployment, and making profits.
2. Special offer discounts
The virus crisis has hit many industries. Most of your customers are finding it tough to cope with the current moment. To avoid losing your loyal customers, you should start making plans on how you can start offering discounts.
Patchion LTD is now offering a 50 percent discount promotion to keep its customers for every order above 80 identical personalized patches. This company is doing this because it understands how difficult it is to make ends meet during these difficult times.
By offering these promotions, the company is now able to retain its customers while still attracting new companies and businesses. You can also do the same, but differently, depending on your industry and other factors. Providing promotions and discounts during this difficult time will make your customers know that your company cares about them. You can also take advantage of the special offer from embroidery manufactured Patchion to promote your business during the virus crisis.
3. Providing a safe working environment for workers
The COVID-19 virus is highly contagious. The virus is primarily transmitted from the infected people to others who are in close contact through direct contact, respiratory droplets, and contact with contaminated surfaces and objects. The World Health Organization and governments are advising businesses and companies on the measures they should take to protect their workers.
Patchion LTD is doing all it can to keep its employees safe from providing them with face masks, hand sanitizers, encouraging them to wash their hands regularly, and making sure the workers are observing physical distancing.
Every company needs to have its employees healthy to keep running. Without labor, your company can not run. Providing your workers with a safe working environment will help prevent the spreading of the virus and keep your company running.
4. Delivery services
Limiting the number of people you are interacting with can also help slow the spread of COVID-19. Patchion LTD is now offering delivery services to its customers. Customers are making their orders online, and after the products are ready, the company is arranging for delivery to make sure the products reach the customers without requiring the customer to visit the company’s office.
Your customers still need your products, but many of them are unable to visit your stores or office. Make plans of how customers can place their orders online and how you will be delivering the products on their doorsteps. After implementing these plans, make sure to communicate the changes with your customers via email or the company’s social media pages.
