In March 2020, as the impact of COVID-19 became apparent, RC Deaf Missions Malaysia found that consumers were struggling to access its products as getting to physical stores became more difficult for some.
Some more, their business was mainly depends on walk-ins for over decades. They need manually place order and could not afford to spend time or treasure worrying about the technology underpinning its business. They have been existed for 15 years but not yet have the chance to explore ecommerce before the pandemic.
Lack of IT expertise
- Technical skill shortages were holding them back from pursuing transformation with limited budget.
Dine-in was prohibited
- Not getting any walk-in during the pandemic due to movement restriction to mitigate COVID 19 resulted in big losses as their income source is mainly generated from dine-ins.
"When we don't have dine-ins, when we don't have enough online order, the eventual that could happen, which is to shut the whole operation down. And the beauty of what we had here of empowering deaf people to shine, will go."
