Company plans to expand its presence to other parts of Asia such as Philippines, Australia, and Indonesia, further strengthening its commitment to the region.
SINGAPORE, Jun 15, 2016 – From developing unique web stores for business owners, to listing them on marketplaces and social channels, to providing insights on how to sell online, Shopmatic, a homegrown e-commerce SaaS (Software as a Service) company has achieved several milestones that have transformed the retail landscape in Asia.
In 2015, Shopmatic began its operations in Gurgaon and Bangalore, India with a committed mission — to provide a simple, affordable and smart ecommerce solution. This allows business owners, particularly SMEs (Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) and ‘Homepreneurs’ (entrepreneurs who work from home) to go digital and grow their businesses online. With a team of more than 40 people, the company subsequently achieved many breakthroughs in the ecommerce industry.
“We are very fortunate to have grown into our current size in such a short time while continuously improving our product offering, service proposition and customer experience,” CEO and Co-founder of Shopmatic, Anurag Avula, said.
“I’ve witnessed thousands of people accomplish life-long dreams of growing their own successful business and nothing makes me happier. This is the best thing about working at Shopmatic — seeing all of the incredible things our community does with our platform. Every day we are a step closer to transforming the marketplace and giving more people the opportunity to access the best global, regional and local partners on a simple platform and in just a few clicks. More importantly, we are helping our customers reach out to a new set of customers, a segment that is beyond traditional brick and mortar.”
Within months, Shopmatic invested heavily in a high performing logistics network, partnering with Aramex, a leading global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions.
“We recognize that managing the last-mile delivery is one of the biggest challenges for Homepreneurs and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and we want to help them solve this problem. The partnership between Aramex and Shopmatic brings about a strategic opportunity for us to enhance our “one-stop-shop” value proposition, managing the entire ecosystem, enabling anyone to sell online,” Avula added.
In an effort to provide its customers in Asia the best ecommerce solution, Shopmatic has also partnered with top industry players, such as PayPal, allowing business owners to enjoy special rates from its payment partners so they can generate more margins from their online sales.
This year, the company plans to expand its presence to other parts of Asia such as Philippines, Australia, and Indonesia, further strengthening its commitment to the region.
