Remember unconnected businesses are prone to failure and will bleed over time. Get Your Shop Online GYSO encompasses the skills required for any business to stay float and to supercharge at 10x speeds. These are powered by in house Digital Sales Marketing Content Strategy Technology and OPS Team.

GYSO delivers an outstanding result to its clients by combining a data-driven approach with hands-on impeccable knowledge of Digital Print TV and Retail. A Futuristic Thinker Karthik Raja CTO and CSO of GYSO is an expert at Turbocharging/Supercharging e-commerce/traditional businesses with omnichannel modules. GYSO was founded by Mr. Karthik Raja and Mr. Jonathan both having a combined experience of 40 years in various domains including Sales Marketing Technology Strategy and Business. With their combined effort the company has been able to consult startups as well as Enterprises while demonstrating proven increase to companies of all scale. Karthik’s knowledge and experience in the field of Digital Print TV and Retail industries has helped GYSO’s clients to set up from scratch. With his insightful ideas he has been successful in setting up and running of supercharged hyperlocal e-commerce units. Exceptional Services Today Google along with various other social media platforms have a huge impact on e-commerce customers. Keeping this in mind GYSO aims at providing hyperlocal solutions to various problems by encompassing all digital marketing techniques into one product – GYSO CARE. With the help of the experts of GYSO CARE it is possible for the company to provide a guaranteed growth to its clients. GYSO understands that along with reaching out to potential customers conversion of these leads into customers is equally important. GYSO CARE makes this possible as it comprises of various services like Search Engine Optimization Search Engine Marketing Google Display Marketing Facebook Hyperlocal Marketing Google Hyperlocal Marketing Google Business Page Optimization Website Development Brand Building In-Store Branding Print Ad Optimization Call Center Setup Robotic Process Automation AIML EBITDA and Business Intelligence Tools. Changing the Outlook When it comes to e-commerce businesses according to GYSO the major problems faced are retaining customers generating traffic measuring ROI / ROAS capturing quality leads and choosing the right technology partners. It also includes finding the right products to sell and attracting and hiring the right people to make it all happen. While other issues like achieving profitable long-term growth omnichannel setup yield optimization of all processes RPA also occur. Karthik explains the reason behind these problems saying “Getting people to understand hyperlocal methodology was a challenge. They wanted to compete with Flipkart or Amazon. They tried to emulate fast-paced business models whose growth were never profitable in India. They kept borrowing to sustain while our clients tried to emulate the rapid growth without healthy bank balances. We convinced all these people and made all our customer build their brand with a clear focus on the bottom line.” Karthik believes that it is crucial for retailers to know how to attract customers efficiently without killing the marketing budget. It is seen that not all the leads are converted equally. Effective leveraging of SEO PPC email social media display ads retargeting mobile shopping engines

and affiliates are important to help drive qualified traffic to their online and offline stores. Connecting both is again important. Hence retailers should give utmost importance to the audience how they interact and how to engage with them. Guiding to Build a Dense Marketing Network It is important that retailers deliver their omnichannel marketing strategies with meticulous planning. Ideally campaigns should be crafted with tightly integrated content marketing strategies with ROAS measured for every campaign. 90 Days is the time the company needs to bring visible changes to any business model that adapts the inputs. Here comes the role of choosing a correct partner or agency. GYSO is one such partner who helps retailers to implement projects or oversee marketing campaigns that may also limit the client’s growth. It is indeed challenging to be different from others when the online world is dominated by Amazon Shopify and Aliexpress. To be different is to produce their own private labels and setup connect omnichannel models if the retailers think of competing with such conglomerate. Karthik says “Retailers should be out there getting their name out within the online community by attending e-commerce conferences speaking at events and networking. Employees want to work for companies that care about them and their customers.” GYSO has used its resources and talent to develop a connected world for various clients. Karthik mentions a few of GYSO’s clients by saying Poorvika – Hyperlocal positioning increased the number of leads to 100X. We also helped the brand fight with business biggies like the Amazon and Flipkart with clever tech and digital strategies. Diadem – The Hyperlocal walk-ins increased by 10X Telebuy – The Ecommerce sales increase by 5x. Aachi Kitchen – We helped them build from no where.

built the product concepts assisted in sales marketing and operations. From Meat to Rice to vegetables we helped them to source from the right channels bring production costs down. Stores grew by 2x. AGS – Their admissions from start to till date were powered through Digital and GYSO build content strategies. Today’s Digital World The current world is undoubtedly full of exciting changes and innovations for both businesses and buyers. It is essential that an entrepreneur or an e-commerce developer keeps a finger on the pulse with the changes in the e-commerce landscape. E-commerce businesses cannot succeed with great products alone – they need to draw in customers to the right channel where the revenue maximises. This is exactly why great connected omnichannel marketing will always be an essential part of success in e-commerce. Karthik asserts “In the past decade there has been a dramatic change in the way consumers shop. Although consumers continue to purchase from a physical store they feel very convenient to shop online since it frees the customer from personally visiting the store.” Being the third most popular activity on the internet after email using and web browsing online shopping has made lives easier from both the ends. This rapid growth of e-retailing is attributed to the advantages. It offers greater flexibility enhanced market outreach lower cost structures faster transactions broader product lines greater convenience and customization. This smooth option is possible because of the use of the internet. The popularization of the internet has made online shopping one of the most popular shopping styles for customers. Countries like India China Brazil Russia and South Africa are known to play a leading role in the future of e-commerce. The most exciting part about all of this is that a lot of these markets are relatively untapped by existing e-commerce businesses at the moment. Due to which there is enough potential for existing businesses to branch out and reach new audiences. With this there is enough opportunity available for new e-commerce brands to pop up within those emerging markets and tailor their services towards local audiences. While e-commerce in India is reaching the top of the world it is necessary to omnichannel the businesses. By the means of omnichannel businesses will be able to sustain in this competitive ecosystem. Roadmap in the Future Digital World GYSO believes that the key to success is its plan for the business. The team intends to make the businesses associated with GYSO profitable by its hyperlocal powered e-commerce modules. In the end Karthik says “By committing to the simple yet powerful planning strategies we keep our company and ourselves ahead of the curve and on the path to an increasingly profitable future.”

slide 29:

D evansh Chaurasiya explains Digital transformation as an ongoing process of changing the way we do business. It is an investment in skills tools technologies and IT infrastructure. Digital transformation is a cultural shift integrating people technology and business together. A BUSINESS CASE STUDY A product manufacturing IT Major needed to digitally transform itself to accelerate its business activities processes and its operating models. It needed to leverage the digital tools and technologies to drive higher revenue better margins and competitive edge. Company had robust one of the best supply chain capabilities based on efficient and reliable third party logistics system. Company manufactured and assembled its products in Asian countries and distributed all over the world. Major expectation from digital transformation was to detect and minimize missing containers damage deliveries reduce theft higher recovery faster replacements better compliance governance forecast and prediction on demand supply gap to increase operational efficiency driving higher partner satisfaction and better customer engagement. IT major hired a consulting company for digital transformation. It did well to understand complex logistics model rigid legacy IT infrastructure and started data migration ingestion and historical load from various sources like Oracle SQL GT Nexus Teradata to AWS using a BDM ETL Tool. After data migration all legacy reports on Business Objects Excel Access VBA coded dashboards were to be transformed on Tableau. However ineffective mapping and untransformed data was the hurdle to build the Business Intelligence. Business reports were in columns and rows. Consulting company pitched to transform hundreds of columns and rows into graphs. However business needed to see information in detail like not only what percentage of containers were missing but exactly which container was missing to action upon. Company was essentially trying to retro fit the legacy technology backbone with new-age technology without functional and domain knowledge. After numerous corrective sprints business decided to transform the last mile in-house. “Digital transformation should have a strategic objective defined in an operational architecture with business use cases. Information flow should be well defined throughout this process” IMPROVISATION – PULLING THE PROJECT INHOUSE This looked like a right decision in the starting but Digital Transformation needs Change Management 1. Skills - The current team did not have Tableau skill 2. Bandwidth – Time availability from regular business deliverables 3. Employee Pushback fearing loss of job 4. Cultural Challenge – Change was not fast adapted 5. Lack of Leadership Communication - Involving business users was another major task as they CXO Standpoint 27| January 2020

slide 30:

were reluctant to spend time with the functional staff in transformation. CHALLANGES IN DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION 1. Lack of complete IT knowledge 2. No holistic vision 3. Resistance to change 4. Cost factors 5. No ROI definition 6. Leadership support 7. Procrastination WHAT COULD BUSINESS HAD DONE DIFFERENTLY TO MAKE THIS TRANSFORMATION SUCCESSFUL 1. Leadership Communication - Digital transformation is not only the transformation of tool technologies and process but it is transformation of entire business model. It changes the way a business operates and interacts within itself and with external world. Business transformation is a change in mind set that business is evolving faster than we are adapting. Communication department should have chalked out plan to communicate that the company’s digital transformation journey doesn’t belong to an individual or department. It is a Company-Wide progress 2. Top Down and Bottom Up and closed loop approach – In this journey business should have consulted all stake holders in the supply chain unit. 3. Training Incentives and Counselling - Management should have explained that transformation will help gain better skill. Training on new tools and technologies should have been arranged and new motivating incentive plan should have been chalked out. DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AN UNA VOIDABLE CHANGE One of the major driving factors of digital transformation is the rate speed and volume of data explosion. World is witnessing the second wave of data explosion with IoT and Autonomous cars leading to edge storage and edge computing. World is trying to make sense at the source of data generation before they store it at the main storage. Companies which are not adopting fast enough will sooner or later feel the need to ride the wave or competitors will be making decisions much faster and winning the business. We can only wait how evolving business models emerging technologies people and digital transformation will change the world we live in. We can be assured that world will be a very different place to interact in the decade of 2020. Scenario presented in this case study is general not specific to any company 28 | January 2020

Finding the right business opportunity or creatively developing an idea is certainly not an easy task. I call ‘envisioning the idea’ the first true task of an entrepreneur. As an entrepreneur you must possess the ability to see what others cannot see. While others see problems you must see opportunities. The second biggest challenge you will face in the course of starting your business from scratch is assembling the right business management team. When I talk about a team I am not talking about regular employees. I am talking about a ‘strategic round table business team’ that meet regularly to brainstorm on ways to grow your business. What according to you are a few major problems faced by e- commerce sites How does Digital E-commerce Solutions help solve such issues The major problem we are facing is too many returns from marketplaces. There are marketplaces who gets fake COD orders and because of this sellers have to bear RTO charges. The second major problem was the payment reconciliation. Marketplaces don’t give proper reports of payments. 34 | January 2020

Of course implementing industry best practices along with exceptional user experience and interface are important but they don’t always meet the necessary goals that drive the growth of a business. Traffic conversions and helping the site meet its crucial objective sales are paramount for the success of an E-commerce solution. In a developing country like India where competition is intense having an e-commerce website optimized for unrivaled traffic is essential.

Hence companies across the nations are taking initatives to create websites that will help businesses attain their desired target. One such company which is helping organizations make steady progress towards their pursuits with its ‘customer first’ approach is Dot Solutions.

company has been able to stay ahead of the curve. The company encourages its staff to attend seminars workshops and conferences besides conducting a few for itself. It helps Dot Solutions to stay at the cutting-edge on the internet world and in the process helps its customers to stay relevant. Views on the Industry According to Dot Solutions In today’s busy lifestyle people seldom find the time to visit physical stores. The hassle around finding a desire store visiting it personally and then purchasing the required product on MRP put a lot of barriers for the average internet-savvy consumer. The company adds as the internet has evolved people can now sit in their comfort and buy products from different merchants with assurance at a reasonable price. For them traditional ways of purchasing are inefficient. But this has resulted in losing the meaningful relationship between buyers and merchants. Hence the E-commerce sites must understand and offer services to their customers that will help to maintain this meaning. A Vision for the Future Even though it has become easier for customers to create an intuitive website using a vast amount of resources they still struggle to deliver the results. This is where Dot Solutions helps to add value. For the company the future lies in moving up the value chain from simply being an infrastructure domain hosting and service website development provider to a solution provider. Dot Solutions is planning to create a division which solely focuses on helping customers drive traffic and increase their sales both online and offline. It is also looking to establish a cyber law and cybersecurity consulting practice. This will help its clients to mitigate online risks and meet compliance requirements when it comes to their online presence. The company plans to keep on innovating and provide services that will help to enhance and pave a path of success for its clients in their endeavors. We help companies understand their top three audiences online and then create a website which is customised to meet the needs of these individuals by making it easy for them to find what they are looking for. “ “ MOST RECOMMENDED E-Commerce 10 THE SOLUTION PROVIDERS Tapan Parekh Founder 37 January | 2020

EMedStore Helping Pharmacies to Grow Online I n a recent international study it has been seen that people of every age and from diverse sectors are adopting the internet as their convenient retail solution provider for daily utilities. Some of the biggest advantages of going online for shopping are overcoming geographical limitations and quicker access to the products. With the quick doorstep delivery options the strain of commuting to the local store has drastically reduced. Apart from this online shopping has an added advantage of the availability of abundant information about the products along with being open 24 by 7 availability to shop. Speaking about buying online pharmaceutical products there is a slow acceptance of technological involvement. But one such company with the aim to bridge the gap between customers and pharmacies is EMedStore. Throughout the years EMedStore has been extending its services to a bigger scale like pharma laboratories distributors the marketplace and other healthcare sectors. The main purpose of this was to make digitalization gain significant recognition. With the help of digitalization the company has come up with an Indian Medicines Database which is approved by physicians and pharmacologists. This database has been facilitating clinics pharmacies hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry with complete and authentic medicine information. Ahemad Abbas Founder and CEO of EMedStore shares with us some interesting facts about his journey with the company. 1. What type of offerings does EMedStore delivers Is it limited to B2C Please provide us with some details about it. With more than 4 years of experience in being a Global Pharma IT company we do not restrict ourselves to just B2C. We have applications and portals intended to serve B2B Marketplace. Our technical solutions are not just limited to retailers we do work on pharma application and website development for manufacturers and distributors too. The major setback as of now for them is to maintain inventory and stay up to date with the continuous drug supply. And EMedStore is on an initiative to make it all smooth for them. 2. What are the challenges your company has faced How did your company overcome such challenges Just like all other start-ups we too had a blend of challenges to come across. To count some of them partnership decision making financial management and hiring suitable candidates to support the firm in achieving some realistic goals. Apart from this we also have been planning to work on security and guidelines for the products establish the privacy policy and update terms and conditions. This will be done most importantly to follow state or country- specific guidelines set by government bodies especially for selling of OTC or prescription drugs online. Contrary to the market trends showing really slow acceptance of technological involvement in pharmaceuticals we found the recipe for tangible success in our products. We also had a plus point being pharmacists and it solely helped us drawing the attention of retail pharmacy owners to come and experience the digitalization of medical stores. This resulted in having clients in almost 29 countries. We proudly served 320+ applications and targeting much more to be sold over a period of time. Overall with a strong team of developers support staff and marketing experts EMedStore is growing rapidly leaving its footsteps in the revolution of Online Pharmacy Business. 3. What according to you are a few major problems faced by e-commerce sites How does your company help solve such issues Before answering this I would certainly like to differentiate the terms e- commerce and e-pharmacy. Unlike other e-commerce e-pharmacies need to be very profound in the selling of OTC prescription drugs or any other healthcare products. Although e- pharmacies made it easier for customers to buy medicines and healthcare products online it has also brought with it some unique challenges. Let us consider the omnichannel customer experience to start with. A medical store owner when chooses to develop an online platform for their pharmacy may need a support system 40 | January 2020

slide 43:

to help them navigate through the application or website. EMedStore has a 247 support system allowing retails store owners to communicate with our experts through their preferred channel of communication be it phone email live chat screen share or video call. The other is there is always a concern of confidentiality of data in that case we prefer to manage our own servers and do not allow the transfer of files through common FTPs. Lastly the absence of online identity. We prefer giving marketing assistance to our customers helping them in growing their business to the next level with online pharmacy app development. 4. How do you envision the future of your company Considering India as the fastest growing economy start- ups seem using multitudes of technological innovations to connect with their customers and increase margins. Thus EMedStore has stepped forward towards the vision to cover all the continents. Now we have customers in 29 countries and we are still growing. Our existing customers and retailers have come up with a concern to address their problems on managing inventory and EMedStore with its team of experts are working out to come up with the best possible solution. Consequently we are planning to provide 360-degree healthcare IT solutions in every aspect of the pharmacy business to grow it rapidly. About the Leader Being a registered pharmacist and working as a pharmacy owner for about 10 years Ahemad Abbas Founder and CEO of EMedStore has personally experienced the troubles. He has faced many issues whether it is about a patient-centred multidisciplinary work maintaining stock and inventory or adoption of technology. The experience has played a vital role in bringing up an idea of providing IT solutions to the pharma industry. Ahemad believes that one of the key players in his journey towards success is the E-pharmacy Consultant. It has been taking care of rules and regulations of working for online pharmacies in different countries. Furthermore the technical consultant works on strategic priorities and implementation of technical solutions of a day to day pharma activities. Being an online pharmacy application development company we o er a plethora of services to help you take your business to the next level by developing online medicine order web applications. “ “ MOST RECOMMENDED E-Commerce 10 THE SOLUTION PROVIDERS Ahemad Abbas Founder and CEO 41 January | 2020

Towards the Digital Era E arlier shopping was done for occasions like birthdays anniversaries family functions festivals etc. For generations people have been going to local stores for shopping. Their loyalty towards the shop/shops were always maintained between the customers and the shopkeepers. Soon due to the influence of western culture and the innovation happening in the technological sector new trends and fashion were introduced. This influence made the customers start looking for latest choices. This is when new ventures like shopping malls brand outlets etc. started flourishing. With the development of digital technology e-Commerce websites came into existence. The eCommerce websites have features like huge variety of products offers quick doorstep delivery etc. These features are more lucrative for people helping the eCommerce industry boom. Many physical stores are going digital or marketing their presence online. This has revolutionized the entire retail and shopping scenario. Every brand is expanding their reach and attaining brand new set of customers too. Online shopping seems to be a convenient option for many—as customers do not have to leave their homes to purchase anything. Many people even today feel the need to touch and see the product before buying. Such people prefer retail shopping over online. Each of them have their benefits over the other. The shoppers OFFLINE ONLINE Vs. 46 | January 2020

Anytime Shopping 47 January | 2020

slide 50:

choose the mode of shopping based on their needs or comfort. Customers prefer online over retail shopping for many reasons. The Convenience The convenience of shopping at anytime any where is a hook for consumers. People of this era are always busy working living their life taking care of the family etc. In such busy schedules taking time out for shopping is a difficult thing. So people prefer to shop from their homes. Retail shopping does not give this convenience of shopping at anytime and it requires people to spare time from their schedule. The stores also have particular timings according to which people have to visit the shops. This makes retail shopping less attractive than online shopping. Higher Discounts and Offers The online stores offer undoubtedly high discounts that draw consumers towards online shopping rather than the traditional one. The high discounts are possible online due to the large amount of customers on this platform. Companies dealing with e-commerce get more business which means more money making it possible for the company to give discounts and offers regularly. Online business is easier to manage than the retail stores because it saves infrastructure costs for the companies. This makes it difficult for retail shops to offer discounts leading the consumers to online stores. Large Variety of Products People get to choose from a large variety of products with just a click. The more the variety the more they will buy. Also a wide range of products and services can be provided online. Unlike retail stores the more the products the more is the cost of infrastructure. When customers get ‘one stop shop’ platforms they prefer these over retails stores. It is easier for them to buy everything needed in one go at one place. Even the businesses get a bigger market online and have a global reach which is not possible through traditional retail stores. It is easy to spread the horizon of a business through internet which has a significant amount of users all over the world. Shopping is a hobby for some people and they like to shop for hours together. Online shopping offers the feature of shopping day and night to its customers. With the various offers and discounts some people keep buying stuff they like. Even stores do have offers but they are bound by conditions like only particular branches have the offer the offer is valid only when the store is open etc. These conditions are eliminated online which makes the consumers prefer online over retail. Even in today’s digital world few things need be done by going to the stores. Shopping for weddings functions traditional wears etc. is not done online by many people even today. Wedding lehengas wedding dresses etc. are very expensive to buy online. The trust factor plays a vital role here. On a special day like Wedding Day a bride would want to look good and by just looking at a picture of the dress online she cannot understand how she will look wearing it. This can be done in a store which helps the bride feel good and confident before buying the dress. Both – Online and Retail shopping have their own benefits. The value of both eCommerce websites and retail stores are completely different according to people’s view. It can be said that online shopping is preferred a bit more over retail shopping due to its attractive features. However choosing a winner among the two is not possible as of yet. -Shreevarshita Gupta 48 | January 2020
