The Confederation of Indian Industry has announced the launch of a new online business gateway for its members. The e-commerce platform will enable Indian businesses to promote their products and services, expand their boundaries and trade online, within India, across the region, and globally. The marketplace is powered by the secure technology platform from cloudBuy, the global e-commerce solution provider.
TT Ashok, Chairman, CII National SME Council, said, “We are pleased to be able to bring this e-commerce gateway to global supply chains to CII members. They are invited to list their company, products and services and trade securely online. We have made sure that the marketplace has low transaction costs and delivers fast payments direct to sellers’ bank accounts. We believe the initiative is a simple way to increase visibility. It will provide Indian businesses with a new gateway to the world.”
Companies of all sizes can take advantage of a free listing on the CII e-commerce gateway and be trading online the same day. The secure cloudBuy platform, which powers the CII e-marketplace, provides sophisticated e-commerce capabilities giving businesses the ability to:
Sell products and services online
Process inquiries, orders, invoices and payments
Offer a secure shopping basket and checkout process
Take payment by a variety of methods
Upload an existing product catalogue
Display multiple images for products and services
Lyn Duncan, CEO of cloudBuy, said, “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with CII in India to deliver the B2B marketplace infrastructure to enable secure e-commerce on the CII business gateway. Our cloudBuy teams in the UK and India are now focused on bringing as many organisations as possible onto the marketplace and making it simple for them to do business globally.”
