Discount coupon site GrabOn today launched the third version of its website. The chief change that comes with this version is Buzz Me – a feature that will allows online shoppers to have a personalized notification popping-up on their desktop. Users would not need to register or download any app or plugin for this feature to work.
The company claims that this is a first-of-its-kind feature in the Indian marketplace, and will enhance the shopping experience of users to prefer to shop on the go.
“With this new launch and the existing database of users, GrabOn is in the process of raising ‘Series A’ funding which will be spent to expand GrabOn services to hyper-local offline space while pushing the technology to the next level,” says Ashok Reddy, Founder and CEO of GrabOn.
Mr. Reddy believes that the e-commerce space in India lacks user-friendly experiences and interfaces. He plans to invest a major share of the funds in hiring creative techies. “We have also patented this new feature to avoid idea stealing,” says Mr. Reddy.
The ‘Buzz Me’ notification will be available starting July 1st to all the GrabOn users in India. “We love e-commerce and believe this new notification add-on will offer an incredible shopping experience to all our users at just one-click” explained Sylvester Simon, Chief Business Officer, GrabOn.
