Financial Services conglomerate IIFL Group today said that its early-stage investing vehicle IIFL Fintech Fund has invested $2 million in EasyRewardz Software Services Pvt. Ltd, a company that offers services related to loyalty-based rewards as a part of its Series B Funding. EasyRewardz has earlier raised funds from Transcontinental Venture and Flipkart.
The capital infusion in EasyRewardz will be used to expand its operations and develop new products. EasyRewardz offers industry-agnostic cloud-based CRM, loyalty, and conversational commerce solutions that enable seamless omnichannel customer experience. The company’s key clients of the company in the BFSI space include- RBL Bank, ICICI Bank, Bajaj Finserve.
Commenting on the investment Mehekka Oberoi, Fund Manager, IIFL Fintech Fund said, “EasyRewardz is an interesting and growing space. Till now most of the spends were focused on marketing with little attention being paid on loyalty. With digitization picking up, spends on loyalty and customer retention should start picking up. EasyRewardz is well positioned to capture this segment. They have already worked with marquee brands in BFSI space. The opportunity landscape is exponential both in India and abroad.”
Commenting on the investment Soumya Chatterjee, CEO, EasyRewardz said, “We are happy to invite IIFL Fintech Fund in to our investor community. As we double down our focus on expanding our CRM platform to BFSI, we look forward to learn from IIFL and work together with them closely to co-create platform extensions for this domain. Evolving out of Covid, EasyRewardz has taken major strides in exploring new markets outside India and new domains in India This investment from IIFL will help accelerate these initiatives.”
Gurgaon-based EasyRewardz was founded by Tejas Kadakia, Soumya Chatterjee, Angad Singh and Sapan Kadakia in 2011. It enables members to track and manage their loyalty balances across BFSI, retail and shopping programmes all from a single dashboard.
In August 2021, IIFL Fintech Fund was established with a dedicated Rs 140 crore sponsorship from two group companies - IIFL Finance and IIFL Securities. The financial services group with a large retail interface is aiming to offer last-mile credit with the help of cost-effective technologies. Before investing in EasyRewardz, the fund has already made eight investments -- Leegality, FinBox, Trendlyne, DataSutram, Multipl, Finarkein, TrustCheckr and Open Financial Technologies – within eight months of its existence.
