Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Taikee, the grocery focused B2B e-commerce platform of Peel-Works, announced the release of its all new app to offer retailers an intuitive buying experience. Currently available to android users, this addition to Taikee’s technology offerings, illustrates the company’s initiative in building India’s most advanced B2B grocery buying platform for small and mid-sized retailers.
Taikee launches a fresh upgrade for its user app
With a fresh and clean look, an interactive and easy to navigate user flow, the new Taikee has simplified the buying process for a retailer. Starting with a simple onboarding process to even allowing for browsing the app in guest mode, the company has made sure to amplify user experience in order to promote self ordering.
The new product enhances the function of search with multilevel brand and category filters. It also offers retailers a richer set of information for every product, increases offer visibility, provides shipment tracking, enables quick access to important documents like invoices (even on WhatsApp) and offers multiple payment modes for hassle free and well-informed transactions.
A clean interface, responsive technology and a wide range of SKUs, make Taikee a one-stop-shop for retailers to source their inventory. The app UI gives brands multiple opportunities to create brand recall and communicate special offers to their customers.
Shashwat Srivastava, Chief Product Officer at Taikee says, “Helping kirana stores succeed is at the heart of whatever we do and technology is an important enabler in this journey. We are constantly innovating and also interacting with our customers to understand what they need. In this new release, we have provided all the valuable features that our users needed. To automate the entire system, we have used AI and ML based software at the backend. We will continue to offer advanced capabilities in the future.”
Furthermore, to optimize operations, the company has also created a robust backend that lets the fulfilment teams function efficiently, by providing dynamic sales and fulfilment updates. This development falls in line with the company’s vision of ensuring a seamless B2B customer experience.
Sachin Chhabra, CEO and Co-founder of Taikee says, “Of about 13 million kirana stores across the country, less than 3.5 million are using tech platforms. Our goal is to digitally empower all the kirana stores across India, make them independent and give them the experience they deserve while ensuring profits in this new-age ecosystem.”
With efficient product discovery, ordering and inventory management that will help retailers get products to their stores faster and at competitive prices, Taikee has already reached a milestone in driving India’s digitization wave.
