How we are helping UK businesses to adapt post-COVID
After an unprecedented couple of months, it's difficult to know where to begin. Not just in terms of writing this blog, but also addressing the broader picture, as hundreds of thousands of UK businesses phase their return back to work.
Like most of you, we at The Corrugated Case Company are adapting to this 'new normal' — rethinking and revising the way we do business and doing everything we can to keep our staff, partners and customers safe.
At the same time, we've taken a long hard look at what we can offer to help other businesses transition as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible.
Firstly, we are now offering all businesses a FREE audit on their current packaging.
This is something we do regularly for our existing customers, and now we're providing this service to anybody wanting to review and, where possible, reduce their cost expenditure through re-design and box rationalisation.
We can look at the setup you have with your current provider, examining everything from order quantities to the types of materials being used, making sure you're not currently spending too much on your packaging.
In addition to helping reduce costs, we can also review your boxes' spec and performance, identifying areas we can help improve the style, build and design to meet your specific requirements both logistically and commercially.
Secondly, we are now taking virtual meetings for all customers.
While many companies are eager to kick-start operations, we understand that not everybody can meet face-to-face right now. We are delighted to confirm all customers can now arrange a virtual meeting with our sales team via Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams.
We're not the only ones, mind you! The whole world and his dog (yes, that's a John Wick reference) are waking up to the benefits of global video communication — with the man himself, Keanu Reeves, reportedly auctioning one-to-one Zoom calls with fans in lockdown to help raise funds for COVID-19 relief.
We may not have any A-list celebrities here at CCC, but we are incredibly excited to reconnect with businesses who require our services. Whether you need to incorporate E-commerce and mail order or provide in-store customers with a click-and-collect alternative to delivery, we can implement the right packaging solutions to meet your needs.
Mark Wilcockson, our Managing Director, added: “We know the coming weeks and months will mean lots of changes for everybody. Thankfully, we have the in-house skills, resources and technical capabilities to help businesses adapt in these unprecedented times.
“We’ve put measures in place to facilitate onsite meetings, adhering to COVID safety regulations, and connect with customers who prefer to do things digitally. In a lot of ways, we're keeping a close eye on how we can accommodate as well as enhance businesses in this post-COVID world."
