MillionSpaces brings together leading corporates MAS, Hemas, JKH, Virtusa and PwC, in a forward-thinking webinar on adapting to a post-COVID work environment. It’s hard to draw positives from a global crisis such as COVID-19, one that has taken hundreds of thousands of lives and impacted millions more globally, but the reality of crises such as this is that they are, more often than not, some of the greatest catalysts for global change. And with the ever-growing proliferation of the phrase ‘work from home’, or WFH for short, in the popular lexicon, we might have a fairly nailed on indication as to what exactly is going to be driving that change.
While the months following the COVID-19 outbreak in Sri Lanka, and indeed many other parts of the world, saw people confined to their homes with either lockdown or curfew regulations, working remotely, away from contact with other human beings, was a new facet of life that was simply forced on us.
Contributing to the Government of Sri Lanka’s objective of promoting the retail operations in the country, Lanka Sathosa Limited partnered with Sri Lanka Telecom to create an online retail store on behalf of the largest state owned retail network.
Responding to the need of the hour, SLT, as the leading ICT and digital solutions provider in the country, has stepped forward to provide technical infrastructure in the form of developing, hosting and managing the online site on behalf of Lanka Sathosa. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by Mr. Nushad M Perera, Chairman of Lanka Sathosa Limited and Mr. Rohan Fernando, Chairman of Sri Lanka Telecom Group.
The technological expertise of SLT has benefited in creating an efficient and comprehensive e-commerce platform for Sathosa that will enhance customer experience. The customer portal enables registration of customers including OTP verification and log in through e-mail address or mobile phone number. The shopping cart option is available for shoppers to pick the items of preference, and check-out takes place once the delivery address is entered. The website provides multiple payment options, such as Cash on Delivery, Direct Bank Transfer and Credit Card Payments, making it more accessible for many customers.
Each Sathosa outlet is able to log into the portal and update inventory, add products and features, modify prices, and add discounts or promotions for items through the Merchant Module.
