Adjust your orders to the new paradigm
UNCERTAINTY is probably the word that better defines the current worldwide situation. As some regions of the world have started regaining some sort of “normality”, restaurants, bars, hotels and cafés have either had to adjust their businesses after a long-awaited reopening. Others have gone or even returned to a sort of lockdown.
New ways of socializing, meeting with friends are currently just as present in the collective awareness as the fear, the social distancing, the economic difficulties or even possible future restrictions, and this duality creates a high level of uncertainty for the on-trade and small businesses. For example, when it comes to placing beverage orders to the supplier, one of the initial headaches may include to accurately forecast the demand and not being trapped with overstock when clientele is still not flooding in like it used to be, or, in the best case scenario, having an overwhelming amount of customers and running out of stock.
