Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are moving their activities from offline to online. This has led to the rise of online bookings, telephone orders, virtual meetings, among others. Measures such as working from home, social distancing, washing hands, and making transactions as contactless as possible are being encouraged. Xente has come up with different packages to help businesses during this pandemic.

Switching From Physical Stores to Online Channels

This package helps businesses quickly shift the sales channel mix from person-to-person and physical stores to new digital and online channels. If your finance processes rely on cash and manual paperwork, handling petty cash in the office, paying workers with cash, shopping from physical stores for office supplies with cash, Xente will help you quickly shift to modern digital and cashless processes. You can get started FREE of charge.
