Our Covid-19 response

Bodaty’s Covid-19 Response During this time of crisis, I want to share with you how we are working tirelessly to help people.

At Bodaty, we are doing our part to help humanity navigate through the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. After much analysis and thought we have decided to target various aspects related to this pandemic, including - 1. Preventing the spread of the Covid-19 Virus We have launched a program to get masks and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that is antiviral/microbial to people who need it. There is a huge shortage of this equipment worldwide and while we realize that manufacturers are trying to ramp up we also know that these will not be delivered soon enough.
So Dr. Rao in our science group has formulated a few variants of antiviral/microbial coatings that can easily be applied to any mask to make them kill any viruses on contact, thus rendering them more effective than just physically blocking the virus. We’re currently testing these and determining …

No Way! We can't let Main Street America die!

At this time of crisis, it is all the more necessary for all of us to come together as a community. ...And that means we can't let America's Main Street stores die. Cramer says that the result of the hardships faced by retailers due to this crisis will be that only the large behemoth players will survive. A lot of retailers may, in fact, face an untimely demise due to the Covid-19 outbreak induced recession. However, it doesn't have to be that way.

Samyata is now available to stores for $0 Fees and $0 Commissions, with no commitment, to help stores weather this crisis.

Samyata offers a great way for retailers to avoid this fate. We make it easy for buyers to shop and get their purchase within the hour whether it is by picking it up (BOPIS- Buy Online Pickup In-Store) or by using a personal shopper. If they choose to use a personal shopper, the buyer doesn’t need to worry about a store's e-commerce site or BOPIS solution being wrong - which happens a lot. For stores, Sam…
Well, here we go again. More store closings, more retailers struggling. What we need is new thinking. What we need is for retailers to break out of their traditional models and adopt new retail ecosystems like Samyata.

Retailers still cling to old models such as -
1. e-commerce - Yes e-commerce is old news. Let us explain. It is no longer enough for stores to just throw up an e-commerce website using the plethora of e-commerce vendors and hope that people go to their websites rather than buying from pure-play e-commerce sites like Amazon. Plain and simple. If a retailer believes that they can avoid having their lunch eaten by these pure-play e-commerce sites, they are in for a drubbing. This is evidenced by the perplexed responses of these struggling retailers, who can't seem to see that their e-commerce sites will simply not hold water when it comes to competing …

Yeah, it is!!!
...and Samyata will lead the way there - and here's why and how -
- Samyata connects Local buyers with Local stores and Local Personal Shoppers - focusing retail around where the buyer is
- Time and convenience - making things easily accessible, multiple options for pickup and delivery, and fulfilling requests within the hour
- Samyata deals with all the stakeholders in retail - Shoppers/Buyers, Personal Shoppers, and Stores
- Everyone talks about BOPIS (Buy Online Pick up In-Store) - Samyata does this for all stores subscribed to the Samyata Ecosystem - this is no longer just for the large retailers
- ...and Samyata doesn't stop there -with Personal Shoppers - buyers can have things brought to them and with Samyata Now personal shoppers can search and buy for buyers anywhere

Samyata means "…
If it's not the Retail Apocalypse (a rather dramatic characterization IMHO), it is the regular drip drip of bad news for today's retailers. Even Saks Fifth Avenue is suffering according to the Wall Street Journal https://www.wsj.com/articles/hudsons-bay-owner-of-saks-posts-lower-sales-11575985094?shareToken=st21b8df7538fb4eb4bff5f3d201c495cf

It doesn't have to be this way. Retailers can make money and lots of it! Samyata provides the next generation of retail functionality - which is what Shoppers are clamoring for - buying what they want, where they are and when they want! Mobile, Geolocation specific, Analytics/AI driven, with integrated Personal Shopping or BOPIS - coupled with a free POS.

We would love to have Saks on our platform! Let's turn this ship around.
People need a fair wage for the work they do - seems obvious, right? Apparently not so obvious to the numerous "gig" economy companies out there - you know, all the delivery companies....
When we created the Samyata retail ecosystem and included the ability for shoppers/buyers to use Samyata Personal Shoppers to do their shopping, pickup and delivery for them - we did an exhaustive analysis of all "gig" economy companies out there...... And we didn't like what we saw.
So we fixed it!
Samyata Personal Shoppers set their own wages, hours and they get to build a clientele and a sustainable business or career. We literally solved ALL the issues the Washington Post talks about in this article -

Family stories make a difference!

We've always believed that its important for families to share stories. Especially, when it comes to children hearing and learning from their parents and grandparents. Our Living Link suite of apps - Popopmomom and Kiddoflock help families do exactly that.
This article in the Wall Street Journal reinforces what we already knew. https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-secret-benefits-of-retelling-family-stories-11573468201?shareToken=st872a94c1a6b249b781fac76d524b50c8
