The most important step is to start by identifying the services you need to develop to meet your customers' needs in the long term: ordering, payment, contact, signature, administrative procedures, messaging...

In this period of uncertainty and changes in consumption patterns, the companies that digitize and innovate to stand out from the competition are those that best secure their future.
