Live Crawls to track real time inventory details
Rajbeer Huda had recently quit a well-paying job in California to come back to India and pursue his dream of opening his own start up. Staying as an immigrant abroad, he had seen an issue faced by a lot of other people staying abroad who wanted to wish or send gifts to their family or friends back home. There was a constant effort required to search a retailer or delivery gift shop and following up with them to track the delivered gift. But above all, there was no quality check over the kind of gifts that got delivered.
Then came the e-commerce era, making easy deliverability an option. However, the options were limited to their stock and the person receiving the gift had to trust the sender’s choice and opinion on what would suit them best. Filing for return at the gift receiver’s end was not possible. Seeing such a state of the online gifting scenario in India, Rajbeer wanted to come back home and change the gifting e-commerce game in a nation with the fastest growing buying capacity. He decided to start a gifting portal providing multiple options and more freedom to the gift receiver to change/replace the gift. But the challenge was affiliating with other retailers as he didn’t want to limit the gifting menu based upon his inventory. But if he pointed to other sites, then keeping a track of their respective inventories was a much more arduous task. Hence Rajbeer was in a tight spot and after much deliberation he decided to take PromptCloud’s help.
