Retailers boost online sales to increase revenue amid pandemic

In the context of epidemic prevention and control, people have changed their shopping method from in-person to online. To meet this demand, retailers have defined digital transformation as a long-term strategy and an inevitable trend.

Over the past two months, the number of customers coming to buy goods directly at trading centers, supermarkets and retail stores in the province has decreased significantly. In contrast, the online shopping systems at these units have become bustling with positive growth.

In order to overcome difficulties in business, Van Chien Electronics has developed a digital transformation plan to develop online sales.

Companionship is needed
