Mirakl’s StopCOVID19.fr marketplace helps solve French PPE crisis
Back in March, to assist the French Government and healthcare personnel in their fight against the Coronavirus, Mirakl launched the StopCOVID19.fr marketplace. Working in collaboration with the Ministry for the Economy and Finance, the Mirakl-powered marketplace aimed to solve the shortage of essential products and materials in hospitals – just as in the UK and around the world a shortage of PPE and getting it to the right place was a massive challenge and today we can exclusively reveal the success of the StopCOVID19.fr marketplace.
StopCOVID19.fr provided a solution to 3 major problems:
- Resolving the shortage of essential products and
- Providing a secure platform
- Centralising the supply and demand of essential commodities for professionals
“As a high-tech company, we examined all possibilities of how we could put our expertise to use to combat this unprecedented crisis. At Mirakl, we feel very lucky to be able to help French doctors and healthcare workers. We are committed to providing assistance to our fellow French and European citizens during this very difficult time. The goal behind this marketplace, which we set up in 48 hours, is to organize the value chain that has been implemented to respond to this crisis. The Mirakl teams have been working tirelessly to ensure that all product references are duly listed from the sectors committed to help cope with this situation.”
– Philippe Corrot, CEO, Mirakl
PPE distributed from Mirakl’s StopCOVID19.fr platform
Millions of items have now been distributed through Mirakl’s StopCOVID19.fr marketplace including:
- 25,265,273 masks
- 18,385,015 litres of hand sanitiser
- 9,387,531 other protective items
In total, 53 million items of PPE equipment have been distributed – an amazing tally.
Mirakl normally focus on creating marketplaces for retailers to enable them to expand the selection on their websites, enabling third party merchants to list and sell. It’s great to see a French company turn their expertise to assist the French nation at a time of global crisis and to turn the project around in just 48 hours was an amazing achievement, but goes to demonstrate that the platform is robust. As the world starts to get back to normal, if you’re looking for a marketplace solution that can scale rapidly, 53 million items processed in just a couple of months has demonstrated Mirakl’s solution is robust and ready to deploy.
