Shopmatic, a homegrown eCommerce SaaS (Software as a Service) company, today announced a strategic partnership with Aramex, a leading global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions. The partnership will allow online merchants to deliver their products efficiently and securely, thereby improving the entire eCommerce 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.
Since its inception in December 2014, Shopmatic has offered a revolutionary, all-in-one e-commerce solution that enables business owners to build and manage their businesses online, commission-free. This collaboration between Shopmatic and Aramex serves to boost Shopmatic’s capabilities as a reliable and comprehensive eCommerce solution provider for anyone who wishes to sell online.
“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 eCommerce solutions will come as part of all custom-built Shopmatic platforms, which is now available in India, Singapore and Hong Kong.
