It’s not necessary to run out of any medication, contact lenses, toothpaste or milk in the fridge. The basics should be covered by an automated system. It can even have some AI included. It can range from pharmacies, to optometrists and your local grocery store. Below are some examples and scenarios of where there is currently a need for automation.
Example 1: Your Contacts
A client comes to buy contact lenses at his local optometrist. The optometrist knows how many the client is buying, and in how many days the contact lenses will last. It will be good to set a reminder to contact the person before-hand. What would be even better is if when the client has 7 days remaining of the current batch of lenses, they get a notification about it on a dedicated app. The person could order and pay for the next batch of contact lenses, and it could ship to the client directly.
It’s much better maintaining existing clients than to search for new ones. If you can maintain clients in a way that they feel you’re taking care of them too, you’re building great relationships and your clients will recommend you to others.
Example 2: HolidaysIt’s August holidays and most shops are closing for the month. Let all your clients know via a notification on a dedicated app that their regular products will need to be ordered and delivered before the holidays start. It can work for optometrists, dentists, pharmacies, doctors, teachers and many other professions.
Example 3: Your Groceries
Your grocery store gives you a milk bottle for free. It has a sensor that syncs with an app and let’s it know when the bottle is almost finished. It gives you a notification to order more and pay for it. It gets delivered by the shop closest to you.
