Shopmatic , a homegrown e-commerce SaaS (Software as a Service) company, on Thursday announced a strategic partnership with Aramex,a provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions. The partnership will allow online merchants to deliver their products efficiently and securely, thereby improving the entire e-commerce experience for business owners.
Business owners continuously innovate to introduce new business models and technology-driven approaches – convenient payment options, speedy deliveries and easy-return policies drive customers to online platforms. Logistics is, therefore, a key enabler for the growth of the e-commerce sector and is emerging as a differentiator in terms of customer service excellence. To build-up their scale while sustaining business margins, e-commerce companies and logistics providers need to work in collaboration to promote the industry.
“There is enormous potential for online shopping spending in Singapore, which is projected to grow from $4.8 billion in 2015 to $6.9 billion by 2018. Shopmatic wants to enable its users to take advantage of this growth by simplifying the online selling experience. 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,” CEO & Co-Founder of Shopmatic Group, Anurag Avula, said.
“We feel that the partnership with Aramex is a natural fit because both companies share many of the same values, including a shared passion for excellence and a customer-centric mindset. We are confident that our collaboration will enhance our one-stop-shop value proposition, managing the entire ecosystem, enabling anyone to sell online.”
Othman Aljeda, CEO of Aramex in Asia, said: “We are excited to partner with Shopmatic to enable local entrepreneurs, particularly SMEs and Homepreneurs, to sell their products internationally. Aramex offers a wide range of customized e-commerce solutions. We are committed to expanding our e-commerce offerings and geographical footprint to meet the increasing demand for global online shopping delivery solutions and to support e-tailers to grow their business.”
Aramex e-commerce solutions will come as part of all custom-built Shopmatic platforms, which is now available in India, Singapore and Hong Kong.
