Investment Opportunity

An Internet (cloud / SaaS) based management software for a booming industry of Tier 1 & 2 Indian cities followed by global cities.

This is huge opportunity in an untapped market with only two Indian players.

This is a seed investment opportunity for social media Internet (cloud / SaaS) based management software product. We plan to launch across India with good media coverage (print, television, on-line, etc.)

Market size:
Huge (200+ Cr p.a.), untapped, unorganized market especially in Tier 1 and 2 cities. Same solution can be sold in different geography and for multiple purposes.

There are only two organized players active in market. One is 1-year-old player and other less than 3 years. This is the best time to get into the market in current age of Facebook and smart phones. I expect few more players to enter soon

Revenue model:
1. Rental: we will be selling in subscription model where customers will pay every year

2. Custom development/services: some customers may ask for custom development which we will do against fee

Technology verticals:
1. Web Technologies: web portal where users can access the application from their PC or Laptop

2. Mobile / Tablet: we will also have mobile applications which can be installed on smart phones and tablet devices for better availability (anytime – anywhere)

3. Cloud / SaaS: this product follows software-as-a-service model and made to service all customers from one portal. All data will be at a secured centralized server, no local installation is required.

Competitive Advantage

Differentiators / USP:
1. Focus on social media: no competitor has focused in this space in the industry

2. end-to-end collaboration portal: both competitors primarily focus on accounting where as we focus on social collaboration. There is a lot of automation involved. This also involves advance features like auto-generated websites for each account, online payments, email and SMS broadcasting, discussion forums, classified section, etc.

3. Available from mobile, web and tablets: all competitors are only accessible from web browser. We will be available from mobile and tablet devices as well

4. Scale: we will be launching & promoting across India. Wider coverage and bigger customer size will generate many more opportunities for us
