SOFTWARE solutions provider MultiSys Technologies Corp. on Thursday launched Multistore, a computer application for building an online store for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
“Multistore is an end-to-end online store builder for food and beverages, retail, grocery, and market shops and other services with store management, door to door delivery plus e-payment features in one single platform,” MultiSys CEO and founder David Almirol said in a forum with The Manila Times.
Multistore integrates MultiSys flagship platforms such as Deliverybox, which supports pick-up, delivery and scheduled delivery services; Paybox, which enables cash-on-delivery, e-wallets and bank payments; and Storebox, which allows for marketplace and digital store management.
The app allows entrepreneurs to efficiently oversee their business operations from product management, delivery and logistics services, content management and marketing, customer support, procurement management, and inventory tracking, to name a few.
Multistore also provides comprehensive forecasting metrics, live data trends, comparative reports, notifications and order tracking, as well as collection and analytics dashboard in customizable timelines.
“We developed Multistore mainly to empower micro, small and medium enterprises, especially for them to be able to adjust in our situation. During the pandemic, a lot of businesses closed their doors due to lack of foot traffic, physical limitations and restrictions,” Almirol said.
“Our MSMEs need to embrace digital technologies, especially nowadays when physical interactions are still quite limited and we need to help enable them at the same time. At MultiSys, we are committed to bridging the digital gap between the customers and business owners by providing them the avenue where users will no longer need to source1 elsewhere,” he added.
Multistore offers several payment options, including credit or debit card, online banking, e-wallets, and cash, on top of flexible shipping options of logistics providers and delivery channels.
The app also allows businesses to see their total sales of the day even on a per branch level, total orders coming in and out, and orders paid. Such financial reports could also be downloaded as needed.
MultiSys Head of Business Development for E-commerce Carl Flores said interested parties can sign up and create their account at http://www.multistore.ph/.
Flores said no transaction fee will be charged.
” I think it is very critical nowadays to have your own digital presence because it is critical for business owners to go into this digital transformation,” Flores said.
Multistore will be a key component of PLDT Enterprise’s Beyond Fiber, a curated digital solution that will empower MSMEs to grow through an e-commerce platform.
“PLDT Enterprise and MultiSys are making sure that we give business MSMEs the right tools,” PLDT Enterprise Vice President Nico Alcoseba said.
