Rapido, India’s Largest Bike Taxi platform, today announced the launch of Rapido Store, a one-stop solution for all business deliveries. Rapido Store, as a service, is a convenient tool for offline and online businesses to help them reach out and deliver products to their customers in these challenging times. Rapido Store will help local businesses take care of multiple customer deliveries simultaneously in the most affordable and trusted manner.
With 200+ SMEs already on-board, Rapido Store has received encouraging response from local businesses. The service is currently operational in Bangalore & Vijayawada and will scale to all cities Rapido is present in.
Announcing the service, Rapido Co-Founder, Aravind Sanka, said,“India is home to 30 million Small and Medium Enterprises, with many of them at the nascent stage of their digital transformation. The sudden and prolonged changes in social and business landscape has caused a significant apprehension within local and smaller businesses. Rapido Store will give these businesses and entrepreneurs an opportunity to maintain continuity and also increase sales by reaching out to new customers by leveraging Rapido’s extensive network. The service will allow these businesses to overcome manpower and mobility challenges by helping them deliver their orders and save time.”
Rapido store will help users track all their deliveries across customers simultaneously. The base price of the service starts at INR35 for 3km in Bangalore, and INR 30 for 3km in Vijayawada currently. All a user needs to do is recharge their wallet and create an order.
Rapido, today, has more than 15 lakh registered Captains present in close to 100 cities. Rapido Store will leverage the already existing fleet of Captains to ensure prompt, quick and secured deliveries. The Captains underwent a training to ensure timely and safe delivery methods in times of COVID 19. Rapido has also put in place mandatory safety guidelines – use of mask, gloves, and sanitisers – that the Captains will follow for each delivery.
With COVID 19 disrupting life and business continuity, the country, its citizens and businesses are rebooting themselves for a new normal. SMEs today contribute to about 30% of the country’s GDP and it is both essential and challenging for them to consider rapid digitalisation to avoid loss of productivity and business. Rapido Store, is that next gen service that will aid SMEs with a delivery of goods solution, saving them time, effort and money.
Rapido is a bike taxi service spread widely across all of India from Tier I to Tier III cities. The app allows you to book bike taxis with minimum wait time, maximum safety and is super easy on your pockets.
