Pluss, the on-demand medicine and healthcare products delivery service will also be delivering Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali products now available in Delhi / NCR. Patanjali’s range of FMCG products, including nutrition, hair care, skin care, dental care and toiletries, will be sold through the Pluss App across Delhi / NCR.
The New Delhi based startup was founded in 2015 by Atit Jain, Madhulika Pandey and Tarun Lawadia after witnessing the country’s largely unorganized health care industry.
In a country where everything, including groceries and food, is delivered at the doorstep in a day, the problem of timely medicine delivery remained unsolved. Through their own fleet of delivery executives, named as ‘Pluss Men’, the company takes the responsibility of fulfilling the orders on time.
The four main product categories of Pluss includes – Baby Care, Pet care, Personal Wellness and Daily Essentials, which are further, divided into subcategories and have hundreds of products in total.
Commenting on this tie-up, Madhulika Pandey, the Co-founder of Pluss said,
We are happy with this initiative with Patanjali. The brand has already secured a position in the list of top five FMCG companies of India with an enormous consumer base and therefore, we as an on-demand platform that addresses the consumers’ urgent pharmaceutical and health needs, decided to bring them on board.
After starting operations with its Android app, Pluss has now intensified its online operations with the launch of its iOS app. The app will enable users to upload a photo of their prescription on their devices, and then select and order individual medicines from their prescription.
The company claims that all orders are delivered to a customer within 60 minutes of receiving an order confirmation SMS. Currently, 11,000 Android subscribers are using the Pluss app.
In November 2015, the company had raised $1 million in pre-series A funding round from IDG Ventures India, M & S partners (Singapore) and Powerhouse Ventures (USA) to upgrade its technology and technical team, perform aggressive marketing, and establish a presence in 5 cities and pilot new projects.
