We are focused on making online and mobile commerce easy and exciting. We provide technology, warehouse and logistic platforms to traditional bricks & mortar retailers to kick-start online – mobile and web – sales channels. At Anchanto, we understand thoroughly the best practices to build scalable Mobile and e-Commerce channels. With our technical expertise in e-commerce and mobile application development, we have developed the complete e-commerce backend from scratch. Here, we take care of each and every bit of detail that is critical for scalable online business.
We started our journey in June 2011 with the idea of making online commerce simple. Our first prototype came out well but was a bit too complex to integrate. We learnt from it and gave it a fresh start. Meantime, to keep the show running, we got involved in software development services. This helped to fund the development cost for our dream platform. During this journey, Anchanto helped funded companies develop Fashion Social Network, Innovation Management Platforms, Events Applications and e-Commerce Platforms. By October 2012, Anchanto’s e-Commerce platform was released. The platform is extremely well packaged. It is loaded with the brilliant backend applications (Apps) and modules such as Order Management System (OMS), Inventory System (IMS), Order Verification App, GST Exports, and Real-time Inventory View.
FACO (Fast Commerce) is a scalable e-commerce platform for enterprises to extend their offline presence in the online world with their own store and consumer facing applications . Anchanto developed FACO after immense amount of study and research in the multiple aspects of the online industry. To list a few of these aspects : simple yet scalable backend to run ecommerce smoothly, needs of the retailers, consumer expectations and behaviour, online shopping, web and mobile application usage and experience.
We believe platform is complete when it provides entire key and functional elements. With the approach, FACO platform offers entire backend, front end technology elements as well as non-software elements such as -
A: Drop-ship warehouse
B: Inward Logistics
C: Inventory Verification
D: Inventory Racking
E: Replenishment Reporting
F: Order Picking, Packing
G: Same day local delivery in Singapore
H: Returns Logistics
I: Re-delivery and self collect
J: Real-time order info to businesses
We strongly believe in partnership, FACO is available to enterprise business on a revenue sharing basis. We take care of running backend so that businesses can focus on what they do best i.e. marketing, customer engagement and sales.
www.ship.li is our unique platform for the small and medium enterprises to start their journey of online retail without impacting their offline presence. The innovative platform idea from Anchanto help SMEs to continue business as usual and still leverage on the benefits of being on the internet map.
Ship.Li is great sales extension for medium and small retailers who do not necessarily have means to start their own online stores mainly due to limited inventory spread, or lack of marketing expertise or due to limited marketing budget online. Its a common store front (as well beautifully designed iOS App) for range of offline retailers who wants to sell online in specific product categories.
Getting on Ship.li is incredibly simple for retailers, entire registration process is enabled through Ship.li business iOS app and web. Within few hours retailer's information get verified by Anchanto and retailer is enabled to upload inventory. We have innovated amazingly simple way to upload inventory using "in-store-inventory-digitizer"
Shopping on Ship.li is WoW experience, customers can buy products across categories in a single cart, choose store near them from in App Map to pickup order at convenient time without having to stand in checkout queue or get it shipped to their doorstep.
Technology platform only does not help businesses scale up online commerce. Inline with our approach to provide complete platform, Anchanto offers drop-ship warehouse in Singapore. We currently offer 2,000 Sq Ft usable rack space, we will be extending capacity to 15,000 sq ft capacity by 2014.
