Vivo India has come up with a new “VIVO Smart Retail” model to connect its offline retailers with customers. The model is focussed on following the norms of social distancing while doing business.

The Indian government is offering few relaxations in green and orange zones of the country to flag off the offline market. Several e-commerce companies have also commenced delivering non-essential goods including mobiles, laptops, and other electronics. In this order, Vivo’s Smart Retail model will be implemented to boost smartphone demand across offline networks.
