Paxcom - Industry Details

The recent years have seen substantial growth in D2C and digital brands in India, with over 4000 brands having crossed INR 1cr sales on Amazon alone in 2020. While physical formats of retail have been seeing a marked slow-down due to Covid restrictions, eCommerce is growing at the fastest pace. This has led to an increased focus of brands on eCommerce.


Ecommerce Trends in the Indian Ecosystem
Disruptions are the need of the hour. This applies to the eCommerce in India as well. With the emergence of new competitors in ecommerce industry, established companies needs to reinvent themselves.

Paxcom - Idea & Inspiration

Paxcom’s founding team took its plunge into eCommerce in 2011 through an ambitious foray into omnichannel retail, before amazon.in the marketplace was launched in India. The in-house omnichannel technology that was built, empowered them for seamless growth across their D2C website, 11 physical locations and to be the pioneer in D2C and marketplaces in India. Mirchimart was one of the first few sellers that Amazon onboarded when they started their business in India. They also won the award for being the largest seller in the electronics category on the Flipkart marketplace in 2014.

This early exposure to e-commerce enabled the founders to recognize the sector's potential in India. Consumer brands were taking their first steps in this direction, but there was a significant gap in understanding of how it worked and how to best use it. There was a need for expert advice and technical solutions to assist brands in accelerating digital sales and making intelligent, data-driven decisions. Paxcom was created to meet this need.

Kinator, a SaaS-based channel intelligence and data analytics platform, was the first solution developed, allowing their clients to track, measure, and audit their eCommerce presence, and provide insights for day-to-day and strategic decisions.

Over the last seven years, they have continued to evolve and grow alongside their clients' ever-changing needs, becoming a full-service strategic solution provider for e-commerce, adding numerous services and software along the way.

In 2019, Paxcom became a part of the Paymentus group - a leading global paperless electronic billing and payment solution, ranked by Deloitte to be amongst the fastest-growing North American companies.

The idea came from the opportunity and the gaps the team saw in omnichannel retail as they managed their omnichannel retail business. The initial product idea was well received in their outbound campaign reach and few initial brands became Paxcom's partners in this journey giving the team an opportunity to learn and mature their offerings.

Pivot from Initial Idea

Paxcom was initially building 2 products - a Product Information Management software and software for sellers to manage their orders and inventory on multiple marketplaces. These two were built initially for Mirchimart for their own use and the team thought of taking these to market. These products, gradually they realized, had significant competition and challenges of stability since marketplaces, to date, don't offer seamless APIs. Paxcom's core product, Kinator, came after a couple of exploratory meetings with some big FMCG brands. This was a unique problem, no players in India at that time gave information to Brands on what is happening to their products and their category on eCommerce platforms. Since eCommerce was so new and growing massively, brands wanted to have some key KPIs to measure ecom growth. The team decided to plugin that gap, and Kinator came to life.

Paxcom - Founders and Team

Paxcom’s founding team was together over years at their previous company, Mirchimart, and Paxcel and had a strong working relationship. So this came in very easily.

The team works closely together and quite often the tasks span across different areas. In the current setup, Neha Khosla is responsible for client success, Tanya Kakaria for Global Sales Marketing, Punit Sindhwani for overall strategy, and Gurjant Singh for technology solutions.

A dynamic powerhouse, Punit Sindhwani has over 25+years of experience in the Technology and IT industry.

Paxcom - Business Model and Revenue Model

There are two parts to Paxcom's business model. All technological solutions are produced and marketed as SaaS solutions, while the services arm operates on an agency model. It typically has annual retainers and subscriptions with its clients, and the startup tailors the engagement to their specific needs and gaps. Shorter project-based engagements, on the other hand, are also possible.

Paxcom - Launch & Marketing Strategies

The founding team launched the company because they first saw the complexities of managing an eCommerce business across multiple channels and the scale and efficiency needed.  The push was motivated enough to take the plunge.

They were fortunate to be amongst the first ones to offer such insights for eCommerce growth, and as such, they found a great response to their email campaign reach on Paxcom's innovative solutions.

"At Paxcom, we believe that a satisfied customer is the best marketer a company can have. The focus on client satisfaction has contributed significantly to our success, and we've seen a lot of initial growth organically through referrals and expanding partnerships with existing clients across industries and regions"  - says Punit Sindhwani, CEO, Paxcom

Paxcom's marketing and business leaders have invested a significant amount of time and effort in developing strong industry relationships and gaining a thorough understanding of the segments in which they operate. This has allowed them to take a consultative approach to business development, based on extensive knowledge of the ever-changing e-commerce landscape, best practices, industry trends, clients' businesses, their current eCommerce maturity, possible growth areas, and potential solutions. Every client is different and having targeted outreach campaigns based on this understanding have worked well for Paxcom. It has also recently begun to broaden the use of content marketing by widely disseminating Paxcom's large repository of useful resources for brands, sellers, and industry enthusiasts at all stages of e-commerce maturity. These are accessible via its website and social media pages.

Paxcom has established a strong presence and goodwill within the Indian eCommerce industry over the years, helping it solidify its position as an authority on eCommerce. Numerous leading brands it serves and its commitment to providing strong solutions for the clients globally have also helped the startup establish credibility as an eCommerce partner. The majority of its new business, therefore, comes from word of mouth, client referrals, eCommerce platform recommendations, and SEO.

Additionally, the team at Paxcom is also been working on producing content that serves the industry by offering in-depth information and advice for clients and the broader brands in the market.
