Ahmedabad based ecommerce portal, Infibeam has been in business for over 7 years. With each passing year they have evolved and added new businesses to their work portfolio such as Online Retailing, E-Commerce Marketplace, E-ticketing and many others. Their 2011 business extension, Buildbazaar which allowed users to create their very own online store was awarded ‘The Game Changing Idea of The Year’ in 2014.
Latest business expansion of Infibeam is the launch of SaaS-based logistics services aggregation platform, ShipDroid. It’s a distinctive and beneficial tool that allows e-sellers to join hands with multiple logistic players on one platform and deliver their products across India. Amalgamated with their SaaS based ecommerce platform Buildbazaar, all its users have the comfort of choosing preferred shipping company, getting their package picked & delivered and track the shipment online.
ShipDroid can simplify and bring about transparency & uniformity in the whole logistics process, making it particularly useful for small and midsized sellers.
While speaking about the idea behind ShipDroid, Co-founder and Head of Logistics Platform, Infibeam, Sachin Dalal said, “This is a big step forward in streamlining e-commerce experience for all marketplace sellers for whom logistics is the most challenging and costly part of selling online.”
Some of ShipDroid’s salient features and benefits are listed below:
Efficient logistics management made accessible at low price makes ShipDriod an innovative service for SMEs. While for now it is only available to Buildbazaar users but in future Infibeam plans to open this service to local sellers as well.
An early entrant in this segment was Delhi based ShipRocket which was launched in 2012. They too are based on SaaS model but what sets them apart is that it can be integrated with ecommerce platforms like Kartrocket, Prestashop, Magento, Shopify, and marketplaces like Snapdeal, Amazon and eBay.
