Arzooo launches Quick Retail service with JIT Delivery

Retail tech platform Arzooo has launched Quick Retail, powering retail stores across top cities with 10X larger product range and with next-day delivery service. 

This initiative will enable all electronic retail stores to sell a wider range of products without investing in stocking inventory. The retailer can close the sale with the digital inventory on Arzooo, and the company will fulfil this requirement by delivering the next day. 

Quick Retail will be backed by Arzooo’s logistics arm, Arzooo Express. It currently has a vast network of over 35 hubs and warehouses across India. Arzooo has also created an ecosystem with over 5,000 sellers on the platform that will boost service delivery. 

Spinny announces company-wide Stock Option Plan

Used car retailing platform Spinny has announced Stock Option Plan for all team members.

“Our reward philosophy is centred around modern thinking fuelled by compassion, teamwork, and shared ownership. Nothing is more important to us than bringing the right solutions for our customers and creating value for the team members,” said Niraj Singh, Founder and CEO, Spinny.

In December 2021, the company facilitated the first ESOP buyback and the total value of the buyback was $12 million.

Aside from ESOP for all, the company has also implemented a few other employee-friendly benefits in the recent past, such as the Spinny Education Sponsorship Program, which provides educational assistance to employees seeking higher education to advance their careers, salary advances and loans.
