What is your take on business digitalization during this pandemic situation and your thoughts on direction for businesses in future?
The pandemic is a sudden game changer in many aspects of business and consumers’ lives. A new norm of telecommuting from home gave rise to a new wave of operandi modus. Communities are staying home and working online, as a result, purchases of food, essential groceries and general eCommerce products rose and surge correspondingly. Home & office deliveries surged voluminously in tandem. This phenomenon is here to stay and grow.
Viagoo digital technology platform was designed to address transportation inadequacies through collaboration and Viamove – the last mile delivery service platform underpinning Viagoo was to provide deliveries service in lieu of eCommerce explosive growth.
The 2 integrated platforms are a good testbed amidst the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic which were hard hitting local and businesses worldwide. On the contrary, Viamove has attested to the growth potential by remaining relatively unscathed despite Covid19’s relentless hit on many businesses and evidencing promising growth. This is a validation of Viagoo being in the right business direction and thus we are aiming to ride the growth wave along with the exponential growth opportunities of eCommerce in Singapore and Asia.
