Considering Technology as a Key Enabler to Business
Giftxoxo is a strong believer in how technology can disrupt complex business problems and make it very simple for various stakeholders. However, technology should solve real business and consumer needs. They consider technology as a key enabler to business, and not the business itself. Hence all their technology focus is to solve basic consumer and business problems instead of doing any fancy stuff which may not be a real consumer need.
“We have been very progressive on leveraging technical capabilities and have invested well in bringing automated solutions and seamlessness,” propounds Manoj. The company keeps investing in technology as long as it serves a real need.

Team contributes a lot in various strategic decisions and brings lots of new ideas to the table.
The experience and activities industry has come a long way since they started in 2012. “ I remember that most suppliers or consumers hardly understood the concept of experience then. And see now, there are so many companies, large and small, who are betting big on this idea,” affirms Manoj. Consumers are looking for unique and curated experiences for various reasons. Suppliers are well aware of the fact that by providing unique experiences to their customers they can differentiate themselves from the competition and also earn better margins. Hence, overall the ecosystem is building up very well.
Giftxoxo is upbeat about this growth and being one of the first movers in this sector, they have been growing well. The company feels proud that they are bringing lots of technological and operational excellence in this unorganized sector.
