At Narvar, our mission is to simplify the lives of consumers. Though we got our start in the States, we already work with a number of retailers and brands serving their customers around the world. We’re now thrilled to announce that we’ve acquired GoPigeon, an end-to-end logistics management SaaS platform based in India, to begin our global expansion in earnest.
With this acquisition, we are now well-positioned to accelerate our vision. GoPigeon’s engineering team will combine forces with Narvar’s San Francisco-based tech team to scale our platform more quickly and improve our product development capabilities, including adding more machine learning expertise. The India team will also anchor our presence in the fast-growing APAC ecommerce market and enable worldwide operations support for all of our customers. We welcome Nexus Ventures as a strategic partner to help us build and grow our operations in the region.
We are now well-positioned to accelerate our vision to simplify the lives of consumers around the globe.
Since starting GoPigeon in 2015, Co-founder and CEO Deovrat Singh has already been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine in India with an award for Entrepreneur of the Year in 2016 for SaaS & IT Services. When we first met a few months ago, I was impressed with his commitment to creating great solutions for retailers as well as his innate sense of challenges to be solved in retail logistics, and immediately knew that we would make great partners. The company recently launched Intelligent Courier Allocation (ICA), an innovative artificial intelligence system that helps retailers optimize how they use their carrier networks based on customer needs in a given scenario. Narvar is well-positioned to leverage this solution and make it available to our client portfolio.
A big welcome to Deovrat and the GoPigeon team. To look at where we are now, at the tipping point of bringing our platform to the world, just 4 years since I started Narvar and created the post-purchase category…it has been an incredible journey so far. There is still much work to be done as we integrate and strategize for the future. We’re so happy to have you join the Narvar family and look forward to doing great things together!
