In a move to further strengthen its leadership in the m-commerce domain, Snapdeal, one of India’s largest online marketplace has announced that it has acquired Letsgomo Labs, a mobility solutions company.

Letsgomo Labs provides end to end mobility solutions to businesses that are looking to harness the power of mobile. Founded by Manav Kamboj and Vikas Banga, the 76 member team with expertise across mobile technologies, design and strategy, consults businesses right from building mobile strategies to conceptualisation of applications and mobile sites to implementation and hosting, Snapdeal said.

Letsgomo Labs also works with leading e-commerce companies to help them strengthen their mobile capabilities.

With the acquisition, Letsgomo team, now a part of Snapdeal family will focus on further strengthening the organisation’s mobile technology capabilities. Mobile is one of the key growth drivers of e-commerce in the country and building a robust mobile commerce platform has been a key focus area for Snapdeal. With the acquisition of Freecharge in April 2015, Snapdeal has become the largest m-commerce company in the country. Already, 75 per cent of the orders on Snapdeal come via mobile based transactions. The recent acquisition of Martmobi – a mobile technology start up, was also a step towards further strengthening Snapdeal’s mobile platform.

Speaking about the acquisition, Rohit Bansal, co-founder, Snapdeal said, “Mobile is one of our key focus areas and in a span of just 2 years, the medium has proved to be one of the biggest growth drivers for the company. Delivering a great user experience across varying data connections and numerous handsets being used in the country is the guiding principle for our mobile initiatives. Over 75 per cent of our sales now come through mobile platforms and Letsgomo team becoming a part of our family will further propel our efforts in this direction.”

“Snapdeal is focused on building strong mobile capabilities and we are truly excited to be a part of the Snapdeal family. We strongly believe that new age technology innovations will happen here. Mobile will continue to drive e-commerce in the country and how companies utilize this platform will be a key success determinant. We look forward to building world class mobile technology at Snapdeal and set new benchmarks for the industry in this space,” said Manav Kamboj, co-founder, Letsgomo. (SH)
