Shopmatic - an e-commerce Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company in Singapore - has partnered logistics and transportation solutions provider Aramex to improve the e-commerce experience of online merchants.
"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 recognise that managing the last-mile delivery is one of the biggest challenges for Homepreneurs and small and medium- sized enterprises (SMEs) and we want to help them solve this problem," said Anurag Avula, CEO & Co-Founder of Shopmatic Group.
"We are confident that our collaboration will enhance our "one-stop-shop" value proposition, managing the entire ecosystem, enabling anyone to sell online," added Avula.
In line with the partnership, the e-commerce solutions of Aramex will come as part of all custom-built Shopmatic platforms currently available in India, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
"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," said Othman Aljeda, CEO of Aramex in Asia.
