How OffiNeeds is helping corporates plan and purchase office essentials

21 May, 2015

In the 35th episode of TC Show Off, a weekly show that provides startups a platform to showcase their businesses, Srikanth Acharya, CEO, OffiNeeds, showcases how his e-commerce portal is solving a big pain point of the corporates by helping them plan and purchase office stationery, IT consumables and corporate goods under one roof.

The company has been in the business of selling office essentials offline since 1957. It is more like a family business which was set up over 50 years ago. Acharya has been associated with the offline side of this business since almost a decade. According to him, this is the biggest strength of the startup as it already knows the key parameters of the sector.

Customers can place orders in bulk and can get them delivered at their doorstep.

He said the startup has two types of customers—small or medium size businesses and medium to large businesses.

The purchase value of the former varies from Rs 5,000 to Rs 15,000 a month while that of larger companies range Rs 50,000-5 lakh, he said.

Acharya said the company aspires to become for businesses what Flipkart and Amazon are for consumers.
