Bratislava, 20 April 2020 – Adastra sales digitization experts came up with a solution to help SMEs. The newly established platform nakupene.online enables any small business to create a simple e-shop to offer goods and services to their customers. Adastra responds to the Covid-19 crisis offering the service completely free of charge.
The main aim of the project nakupene.online is to connect free of charge small and medium-sized businesses with their customers. "In the first phase we want to help businesses to survive during and right after the crisis by driving demand for their products and services. In practice, entrepreneurs can sell their products and services more safely, plan their resources more effectively, build loyalty with their existing customers and get new clients," Standa Dvořák, CEO, adastra.one and author of the idea explains.
The target group of the platform nakupene.online are small businesses and sole traders such as restaurants, pizzerias, bakeries, small grocery shops (operating 24/7), hairdresser saloons, gardening shops, construction shops, toyshops, small textile shops, florist’s, pastry shops, car garages, sports shops, pet shops, wineries, and others. The platform will be helpful also for sole traders offering goods made at home (e.g. confectioners, bakers, etc.).
The platform nakupene.online provides benefits also to customers. Thanks to digitization Adastra maximizes contactless goods pickup, meeting the increasing demand for this type of purchasing process. The project enables customers to plan their favorite pickup date and time, meeting the customer’s preferences and eliminating any contact with other people or queuing. "Moreover, customers will be able to use a comprehensive database of service providers operating around them and a list of products and services they offer, all in one place," Standa Dvořák names some additional benefits.
How does it work?
It only takes a few minutes for entrepreneurs or service providers to register and design their own e-shop. First they input information about their place of business, add a list of goods or services they offer and finally fill in their pickup or delivery availability. "Customers will then be able to purchase goods and services from the seller and choose a pickup time. The payment to the seller is done directly at pickup. We plan to integrate the service with online payment options really soon," Márius Maslo, CEO, Adastra Slovakia says.
Nakupene.online works as a web service, but also mobile apps are available both for Android and iOS. The project partners are adastra.one, Adastra, Acamar Outsourcing Services, Blindspot Solutions and Tatra banka. "Although we realize that there are hundreds of great ideas out there how to help others during the pandemic, we believe that small businesses will appreciate our effort to help them overcome the crisis that could be detrimental to their business and put their business survival at risk," Márius Maslo from Adastra adds.
