Onsitego - About and How it Works

Onsitego provides hassle-free after-sales services for consumer electronics and appliances. It offers three plans including Extended Warranty, Spills & Drops Protection and the Screen Protection Plan.

Extended Warranty Plan

It is the flagship product. It ensures that the customers can maintain their electronic products in pristine new condition several years after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired. These plans cover all devices and home appliances, be it small or large purchased in India and are available for purchase on the website, Amazon, Croma and Vijay Sales stores to only name a few.

The Spills & Drops Protection Plan

It can only be purchased for mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and digital cameras, which covers all kinds of physical and liquid damage that are not covered in the manufacturer’s warranty. The plan ensures that any damage to your device in the first 12 months of ownership is taken care of by Onsitego. The damaged device is picked, serviced and delivered at the customer’s doorstep, at no extra cost.

The Screen Protection Plan

It covers damage only to the screen of the phone or tablet. Any kind of damage to the screen can make life miserable but this plan ensures that the customers can get protection for the part of the device that is most fragile; at a lesser cost.

It has 400-450 brand authorized partner service centers across India. This ensures that devices and appliances in the extended warranty period and damage protection plans are repaired by technicians who are best equipped to handle them.

How was Onsitego Started

“It was my personal experience of receiving sub-par repair service for my mobile phone that led me to recognize the unmet need for hassle-free and reliable post-purchase services. The hassle that I had to go through just to get a device dropped and collected from a service center made me recognize the need for reliable post-purchase services.” recalls Kunal Mahipal, Founder, Onsitego

It began as a B2C company for providing after sales services to mobile phone users. It provided the service of picking up mobile phones from customer locations, and delivering the devices back to their homes after the servicing is done. However, it did not take long for the team to realize that going after individual customers was not a capital- efficient model. This lead the company to pivot towards the current B2C model, where it tied up with various retailers, and acquired customers through these retailers.
