Obviously at some stage business must go on as usual, but how do you do that within lockdown restrictions when you’re running an essential service. How will you prepare yourself for the future landscape of on-demand services?
Today we are going to explore the specific benefits of adopting social distancing through booking automation and scheduling software.
