Many retail and service businesses face unprecedented challenges as containment measures are enforced to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some of our customers have been creative to maintain their cash flow using QuoteMachine. We not only wanted to share “how” with you but release new features to bolster these best practices.
- We’re introducing our express e-com feature. It lets you share your special offers and portions of your catalog easily, and have customers order and pay online.
- We have extended our free trial to 3 months for our new users using the integration with Lightspeed Retail (more details on the solutions provided by Lightspeed and its ecosystem on their blog: 15 COVID-19 Relief Plans for Small Businesses)

We might realize these new habits will hold and adopting them today might get you ready to reach new heights when this crisis will be behind us.
