We are in the middle of a crisis, which is completely unpredictable. This began as a health crisis and became a significant economic problem within days and is now on a fast road to being a substantial fiscal challenge. Although reserve banks and governments respond quickly to stabilize the economy and financial markets, many government interventions have not been fast enough to control coronavirus infections, causing COVID-19 disease. Unfortunately, because of the delay, attempts to stabilize the economy would be incredibly costly.
Although several industries have come to a halt to combat the spread of the virus, we realized that our focus is demanding more than ever before. We witnessed increased demand for our services amid the pandemic, with a surge of digitization and mobilization affecting all company sizes.
And, being a leading mobile app development business, holding our client's trust by providing them with uninterrupted services even in these challenging times is also of utmost importance to us.

Touchless deliveries are increasing by 40% these days because of COVID-19. Does that mean touchless deliveries are the latest developments in this problematic situation that will comfort consumers? We were thinking about it and found a YES in the answer. Leaving orders on doorsteps or putting a photo of where you need your order dropped off - these are new methods for consumers to get their orders as the Coronavirus spreads out.

In these difficult times, we are also adding this module to apps developed by us for free to help businesses stand firm. This is just our little attempt to help the organization flatten the COVID-19 curve.
