Due to the Corona crisis, the Thai government has instructed provincial governors to encourage residents to stay in their homes to flatten the infection rate curve. The people practice social distancing and avoid travel. In order to meet these current challenges, a tablet service has now been connected. This allows contactless shopping in the stores.
The idea: A 7-Eleven employee offers customers waiting in front of the shop the opportunity to buy their everyday goods via tablet and order home delivery for essential goods. In this way, customers are supplied with food, household or hygiene items without having to enter the store. The desired goods can then be picked up later or delivered to their home.
The new application is based on the API of OSP's e-commerce application stack and could therefore be implemented within a few weeks. At the same time, a native app is currently being built which is specifically tailored to this use case and includes, for example, a guest checkout.
