Ever wondered about the fact that many enterprises and private company users would always need to go through the hassles of following up with their suppliers, for delivering the office based products on time. These users often end up calling, or mailing them repeatedly to get a response back from the supplier, and result in unwanted arguments for late deliveries. Chances are also that you won’t even know if your long-term supplier are actually charging extra for the products when the market price is lower.
Introducing OfisBee, UAE’s first Chat Commerce mobile application app that allows users to avail services using chat functionality, a concept that’s actually followed by popular names such as We Chat, Slack, Magic, Line etc. Chat Commerce/Conversational Commerce has recently been seen as a new trend in E-commerce.
OfisBee is launched by Amaze Global FZE, a company that’s based on DTECH, which is an initiative of Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority. The new app will simplify the process of procuring office products from suppliers for companies around the region. All the user has to do is simply post their requirements through the app, wait for a minimum of four quotes that will appear within a few minutes, chose the quote, and chat with the suppliers to confirm the best order. It’s that simple, no repeated phone calls or mails.
Products that can be requested through the app include office stationery, Ink, toners, computers, printers, office machinery, software and services such as digital printing, offset printing, IT services etc. For each confirmed order through the app, the user gets bonus points called the “Bee Points” that can be used to redeem gift vouchers.
OfisBee has partnered with leading brands, suppliers and service providers to cater to the varied interests of the users. Suppliers are available from 9 am to 6 pm from Saturday to Thursday to respond to customer requirements on the app. Each query is responded to within 5 to 30 minutes and final price and delivery time can be decided upon between the supplier and the user over chat.
“Fetching everyday office supplies can get really tiresome with calls and follow ups. OfisBee makes things easier by bringing both suppliers and buyers on the same platform.”, Says Sreeja Eswar, the Cofounder and CEO of OfisBee. She also adds that the platform helps suppliers reach out to a wider audience without spending on marketing and advertising.
