HERNDON, Va., Dec. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Like the rest of the world, when COVID-19 hit, Jeffrey and Grace Littlejohn were concerned. And like many small- and medium-sized businesses, their family-run residential electrical services company experienced a steep decline in March and April. But a few months later, business began to pick up once again.
“As an electrical services company, we were in the right line of business,” Grace Littlejohn said. “Because people were quarantined at home and had to work remotely, they started to really pay attention to their surroundings. They either wanted to improve their spaces for themselves, or prep their homes for sale, or they just had time on their hands and wanted to take care of some electrical work around the house.”
With the unexpected uptick in their business in the midst of a pandemic, having customers make ACH payments has been a true benefit to the Littlejohns as electronic payments are easy, convenient, low cost and secure.
