Hey Jude – An essential service for life under lockdown

The coronavirus has changed life as we know it and our world has become confined to the walls of our homes and property perimeters.

Despite its upheaval, it has ushered in a shift of the paradigm. People have been forced to adapt and find ways that keep them connected with the world beyond self-isolation. For the business world, it’s no different – ‘business as usual’ has shifted to ‘business unusual’ and businesses and entrepreneurs are now turning to technology for solutions to the unprecedented challenges they face, including keeping employees engaged and staying relevant in their customers’ lives. 

Hey Jude is a service that is perfectly positioned to simplify the lives of both customers and employees, especially during disruptive times like these. As the world’s first human-powered digital assistant for busy people, Hey Jude gets things done quicker and smarter than they can do so themselves. It offers members who live their lives on the move, the convenience of getting what they need from one service. Now that the movements of most people are restricted to their homes, Hey Jude is proving to be essential for life under lockdown. Here’s why:

Hey Jude is a simple, easy-to-use service that is manned by a team of human Judes, who use clever tech, customer-rated suppliers and a global database to get things done for members. Our Judes are problem-solvers, they’re compassionate and experienced, can think on their feet, try to put smiles on members’ faces and they care – traits that are particularly relevant for times like these.

Hey Jude members are relying on their Judes who are available 24/7 to handle any tasks and to source essential products and services during lockdown. Hand sanitisers, anti-bacterial soap, and disinfectants, along with groceries and other household products, are in high demand and can be sourced and get delivered to their doors. 

But that’s not the only way our Judes are helping members on a daily basis. Judes are regularly updating members about the latest COVID-19 developments and providing assistance with testing and care. They’re also helping members to work more efficiently by handling all the challenges that come with working remotely – troubleshooting PC and network problems, providing links to free video calling services, sourcing suppliers to replenish ink cartridges, help with online shopping, and support with school-related issues via the Dial-a-Teacher service. 

Members are reaching out to Hey Jude to liven up lockdown when they’re not working. They’re asking about online and entertainment activities such as yoga and workout classes, cooking courses, DIY tutorials, movie streaming services, and apps to play games with friends and family. 

In these most challenging times, businesses not only need to stay relevant, but also need to show that they care for their employees and customers. Hey Jude is the perfect tool for staying connected during lockdown and getting things done. It is an essential service that makes the lives of members easier by solving what’s important to them in that life moment, while also looking after their well-being. 

So, what are you waiting for? Ensure you remain relevant and top of mind and chat to us to see what Hey Jude can do for your customers, your employees and business.
