“Relationships are important to us. At Paul Merchants, we follow a simple principle: A satisfied customer is a permanent asset, and a satisfied employee is the base of customer satisfaction.”
Paul Merchants believes that a responsible firm should have a self-regulatory and corporate governance system in place to ensure that ethical standards and transparency with customers and business partners are upheld. The notion that everything they do as a business will definitely have an impact on all elements of society, and that it is their sacred obligation to bear responsibility for that impact, has driven them along. The customers speak for Paul Merchants, and this is how they have distinguished themselves from the competition.
During the epidemic, every firm had to deal with a difficult situation. PML’s main difficulty was dealing with decreased demand and dwindling markets. Due to a decrease in income, people became extremely cautious about making any kind of purchase. However, as a powerful and trusted brand, the company’s first and greatest goal was to ensure that consumers’ services were uninterrupted. The company began providing services in digital formats and provided door-to-door services, allowing it to better serve customers. During the change, it launched various digital services in record time and created a slew of new goods. Using digital technologies to help scale the business was also beneficial.
