It is the only marketplace in the ceramic industry that connects die and punch makers and buyers from across the globe. The MOULDIES aims to benefit its customers and users with the benefits of digitization. It provides thousands of options for the tiles based on the required size and other specifications. Buyers can choose exclusive designs from a large portfolio of various sellers and freelancers. The whole process of buying and selling the tile die and punch is performed online; from the selection to billing and payment. The Challenges Faced
Ceramic Industry had a completely manual system for selling tile die and punch to the customers. In response to the inquiry, the Seller makes design and send to the customer. The customer may give the revision based on his need until he gets the die which he likes. At the end of this process, the die is finalized and the process of tile making can be initiated. Once the die is created, it is delivered and get paid for.
The issue with this complete manual process was it was lengthy and time consuming. Often, it took a lot of time and resources in making a die which is approved by the customer and then making an invoice based on various parameters. The group of young Entrepreneurs wanted to give quicker services and a global platform to industry Buyers and Sellers by leveraging technological advancement. Thus, they started looking for a reliable company that can help them develop the web application and mobile application that can speed up the process of selection and order placing to benefit both, buyers and sellers. Also, they preferred to have the platform, which can let freelancer designers themselves and offer their tile designs to the global buyers.
