UPDATE: Tapzo is Launching its first TV Campaign today ( 15-Jan-2017 ) during India VS England ODI Series. See the TVC Below. ft the one and Only Bhuvan Bam.
Bengaluru based Helpchat , an All-in-one app has been Re-branded to Tapzo.
Tapzo is India’s biggest ‘all-in-one’ app, allows users to access more than 20 apps across categories like rides, food, news, recharges, deals and content. These include Uber, Ola, Meru, Zomato, Swiggy, Freshmenu, CouponDunia, MySmartPrice, PayTM, Freecharge, and Mobikwik, and new apps are being added every day.
You can find all daily required services of all apps in Tapzo itself. Tapzo does this by integrating the APIs of other apps onto a single platform in a unique proprietary format. By using a single window to access multiple apps, users can save upto 100 MB worth of data costs each month as there is no need to download and update multiple apps. It also helps free upto 500 MB of space with multiple apps being replaced by a single app.
And the popularity of the app is evident in the numbers. As of November 17, 2016, Tapzo, which is rated 4.5 on Google’s Play Store, has been downloaded over 2.8 million times. The number of daily transactions have also risen from 4,000 to 55,000 since January 2016. Tapzo also aggregates all digital wallets like Paytm, Freecharge, Mobikwik etc. and has seen a 400 percent growth in payments using these systems since the recent demonetisation move by the Indian government.
Transactions have grown from 4,000 per day to 55,000 per day in the past 9 months.
But what makes Tapzo truly unique is that it focuses on Indian consumers and their needs.
I believe that uniquely Indian challenges are best solved by Indian firms. We replaced the chat function with a self-service interface based on customer inputs, and with every enhancement of the platform, we are witnessing massive growth. Today we are the biggest partners for all the APIs that we have integrated into our platform. We are super excited by our new name Tapzo – it’s short, apt and resonates well with our target audience.
– Says Ankur Singla, Founder and CEO, Tapzo.
The name Tapzo was chosen through a customer contest. A user suggested that the rebranding should reflect the app’s movement from ‘chat’ to ‘tap’. In its previous avatar as Helpchat, the all-in-one app platform used chat to interface with its users. However, after customer feedback, the chat feature was slowly replaced with the intuitive self-service interface over the course of nine months.
Tapzo also have offices in New Delhi and Mumbai. It raised Rs 100 crore in Series B funding from Sequoia India & Ru-Net in May 2015.
