With the majority of retailers now re-open for business, having a plan to keep staff and customers safe whilst being able to operate efficiently is a top priority. Amongst the many challenges faced, communication is one all businesses have in common.
Two-way radios have been recognised within government plans as a viable measure in reducing unnecessary movement within shopping centres and retail parks which is an important step in maintaining social distancing.
One retailer who has taken a proactive approach to ensuring the safety of their team is leading home improvement retailer Screwfix, who approached SFL Mobile Radio to help with creating a ‘Covid Secure’ working environment. After understanding their requirements we supplied XT180 radios to 700 stores across the UK and Ireland which were supplied within 4 days of placing the order.
How has this helped Screwifx?
- Improved the communication across stores, particularly between warehouse and front of house
- Enabled employees to return to work in a safe environment whilst maintaining 2m social distancing
- Allowed Screwfix to provide a safe environment for their customers to collect orders
- Kept the business operational through COVID-19 pandemic
