Post Lock down Construction Industry response
Standstill work is resuming and concerns seems to evaporate
The Last week has been a relieving one and on my way to office saw slowly opening of economic activity. Visited ongoing construction project sites and I could feel the eagerness of the Industry to get back to work. The professional approach with all precautionary measures were in place to combat COVID-19 at the construction sites is truly commendable.
The country is entering a new phase so is Construction Industry. Business is not going to be the same for the Construction industry and new trends are emerging.
In these times of social distancing and lockdown customer behavior is not going to be the same in buying construction and building materials.
Physical meetings for selecting and buying products will take a back seat for times to come.
Retailers, distributors, and manufacturers should identify new ways to engage with customers.
Already digitizing of Indian economy has got a booster dose with COVID 19 like situation.
Customers want to search, select, and buy the product online and construction materials suppliers need to embrace and learn this new digital way to engage with them.
This will be an opportunity for a business that is willing to adopt the permanent change and threat for those who cannot.
We at econstructionmart.com have been helping suppliers embrace digital technology to engage with customers online and on mobile.
