Anchanto, a global company headquartered in Singapore, is expanding its presence in the Philippines as it aims to help more organizations take advantage of electronic commerce.
Anchanto’s proprietary software-as-a-service products help brands, retailers, online sellers, third-party logistics, warehousing players, postal associations and e-distributors, equip themselves with best-in-class e-commerce capabilities.
“All our SaaS products were developed in-house for clients such as Garnier, L’Oreal, Maybelline, amongst other leading brands, before being released in the market,” said Abhimanyu Kashikar, co -founder and chief operating officer of Anchanto.
Anchanto was founded in June 2011 by Kashikar, Vaibhav Dabhade, Julien Juttet, and Muhammed Shafique. “All of us, being passionate about technology, eCommerce and retail, shared a common interest of doing something of our own. Hence, we started Anchanto with an aim to revolutionize e-commerce logistics and online selling by leveraging technology,” Kashikar said in an e-mail.
He said that in the Philippines, they observed that online sellers needed to deal with a deluge of procedures in order to sell their products online on multiple sales channels.
Anchanto now has around 90 team members working in offices across the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, and Australia.
Anchanto has more than 100 integrations with Southeast Asian marketplaces, webstores, financial and accounting tools, and ERP systems such as Tally and SAP.
“We serve a massive base of 6500+ DIY online sellers and 250+ Enterprise customers such as Nestle, Pos Malaysia, Telkom Indonesia, GreatDeals e-Commerce Corp, Payless, SilverWorks, LWE, 3M, Garnier, L’Oreal, Maybelline and many more. Moving further, we plan to expand our market outreach and build a stronger presence in Southeast Asia,” he said.
“We are very close to achieving our targets for 2018 in Philippines,” he said. “Due to the proliferating e-commerce penetration, infrastructure, and telecommunication growth, Philippines is very well positioned to grow in the digital world. With our robust and scalable products, brilliant customer base, rockstar team, we are super confident of establishing ourselves on the top position in Philippines,” he said.
