Local businesses and customers tune into online platform to meet COVID-19 essentials
While the world faces an economic slowdown and people all around lack basic healthcare facilities during this pandemic, there is one company, GNO that has launched an online platform for any company that has amended their product or service in order to cater to the pandemic.
Incepted at New Orleans, GNOpivot Marketplace is a platform for both the buyers and the sellers. This platform includes healthcare products and other current essentials like face shields, masks alongside professional services, telework software, catering services and many more.
This platform comes as an opportunity for companies alongside the same niche. Peter Seltzer, founder, Pete’s Papercrafts and NOLA Sneeze Guards is one of the companies that are now associated with the platform. They’ve been producing intricate three-dimensional dioramas and laser cutting services way before the pandemic. They’ve now taken up the opportunity to manufacture essential protective goods like sneeze guards and are meeting customer requirements online, and thereby sustaining in the marketplace, all thanks to the platform by GNO.
Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Co. is another local business that has reopened and it uses local suppliers to maintain its place in the market. The sellers are responsible for maintaining their own listings and their transactions with the customers. Any seller with a modified offering that caters to the need of the hour is welcomed to join the marketplace.
