The pandemic outbreak led to the imposition of restrictions on free movement, catalyzing the shift from brick-and- mortar to the web. This is a clear indication of a change in consumer behaviour in favour of e-commerce.
IntraSoft is future-ready, on account of our focus over the last few years on building our technology-backed services for brands, to tap this expedited market opportunity.
We focused on strengthening the business to seamlessly handle rising volumes and expectations of speed, culminating in a customer-delight experience. Amid supply- chain bottlenecks, the Company responded efficiently, and stood out as a credible provider of marketplace selling services to our brand-partners.
The cash flow performance this year is an outcome of our strategic focus over the last few years, a significant part of which was to align our brand portfolio to our operational benchmarks.
There was no change in the nature of the business of the Company, during the year under review.
Covid 19 update
With the outbreak of the pandemic last year, IntraSoft was quick to respond. With our technologies deployed, we were successful in supporting our brand-partners at a time when they needed us more than ever. Despite other supply-chain bottlenecks they may have faced, we continued to drive their marketplace business. This has cemented the crucial role we play, and strengthened our long-term relationship with them.
COVID-19 has catapulted us years ahead into the online ecosystem, giving the e-commerce industry an acceleration in terms of the online shift of consumers.
The performance of the Home & Garden category (a key portion of our overall brand portfolio) only makes us more confident about the future of our business.
In line with various advisories, directives and orders issued, from time to time, by Local authorities, Municipal Corporations, State Governments and the Central Government of India, as well as the local authorities and the Government of the United States, our employee base has adapted seamlessly to processes and protocols for the remote mode of work. With a focus on safety and wellbeing, our teams will continue to work remotely for the foreseeable future, and are well equipped to do so using our cloud-based systems.
Acknowledging the importance of vaccination in thwarting the further spread of the virus, we have and continue to encourage our employees and their family members to get vaccinated.
We believe that we have taken into account all possible impacts of known events arising from the global pandemic caused by COVID-19. However, the impact assessment of this pandemic is a continuous process given the uncertainties associated with it. We will continue to monitor any material changes to future economic conditions.
We continue with an unwavering commitment towards all our stakeholders, and look ahead with cautious optimism.
