How EasySIM Enabled Seamless Omnichannel Transition for a Well-Known Mass Retailer

Our prominent mass retail client, established in the mid-20th century, operates over 2,000 stores worldwide, offering affordable clothing, electronics, home, and groceries and owns a reputed position. However, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the retail industry, and our client found itself struggling to keep up with the changes in consumer behavior.

However, the transition required a significant shift in mindset and skills for its employees and it emerged as a need of the hour for our client.
