MerCovid19: Kooomo's initiative to supply PPE to Catalan companies

Kooomo has created a B2B eCommerce website, which enables companies to purchase Covid-19 protective equipment - allowing companies to provide safer working conditions.


Kooomo is delighted to announce the launch of the MerCovid19.cat website. This initiative aims to distribute protective equipment to Catalan companies, - minimising risks to their employees and allowing for greater productivity during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The new MerCovid19 platform is exclusively aimed at companies and corporations, allowing them to purchase everything from masks, thermometers and hand sanitizing gels, to protective suits and pulse oximeters. These are all preventive products that allow employees to work with greater peace of mind, reducing the risk of infection.

Speaking on the announcement, Daniel Viniegra, Head of Growth, Spain/France at Kooomo, says “Chamber of Commerce of Barcelona needed a quick turnaround on a project like this - and we’re honoured to offer up our knowledge and technology, to get this equipment on the market for the good of the Catalonian businesses and people.”


Barcelona Tech City, the association of technological and digital companies that represents over 1,000 companies and of which ZeroGrey (Kooomos' sister company) is a Corporate Partner, has made the contact between Kooomo and the Chamber of Commerce of Catalonia possible. The latter quickly accepted Kooomos' proposal in order to give rise to the creation of this new project and make it known to the public. 


Through this MerCovid19.cat initiative, we hope to inspire other companies and public entities nationally and internationally - to work together on similar projects that may improve the economy of each community.

According to Ciaran Bollard, CEO of Kooomo, “The whole team at Kooomo has gone above and beyond to be able to carry out this project - our quickest platform launch to date with a turnaround of just one week.  It is great to be able to give something back and protecting companies and employee's is a critical part of getting us all back to work and restoring some level of ‘normality’. We have reached out and offered the same service to both the Irish and UK governments and hope to work with them soon.”

MerCovid19 was created and launched rapidly due to Kooomo’s Cloud-based SaaS eCommerce platform. Its "Full-Stack" technology and eco-system of 200 integrated partners, made it possible to design a powerful platform in a short time.

Kooomo is committed to supporting eCommerce projects, deploying their knowledge and technology to recently set up relief schemes for retailers, so that other companies can benefit and strengthen themselves during these uncertain economic times.
