Market disruptor LeEco officially announces of entering into India

20160120_152524

(Delhi, India, January 20th): LeEco, formerly known as Letv worldwide, finally entered India by holding an extravaganza official launch event in Gurgaon on January 20th, 2015. This 1,000-guest event, which was witnessed by nearly 500 media people, should be one of the largest launch events ever in India’s history, and facebook also provided online live broadcast of the grand event and reached an historical audience number of close to 100 million. The event proved the previous rumors by launching two groundbreaking Superphones, Le Max and Le 1S. At the meantime, LeEco also lectured the audience of its world-renowned Le Ecosystems.

 

LeEco to copy its renowned Ecosystem Mode into India

LeEco introduced its success in other markets, including Mainland China, Hong Kong and the United States, and the multinational company hopes to copy its legend story into India by introducing its Ecosystems and amazing products, according to Tin Mok, Group Vice President and CEO, APAC of LeEco.

Started in 2004 as a small video-streaming company, LeEco has developed into a world-renown brand with seven pioneering eco-systems, including content ecosystem, big screen ecosystem, mobile ecosystem, sports ecosystem, automobile ecosystem, internet financing ecosystem, and the internet and cloud ecosystem. Each sub-ecosystem is the specific application of the open user-oriented Le Ecosystem.

All seven sub-ecosystems are synergistically connected with each other and are constantly transforming people’s Internet lifestyle for the better and improving the environment we live in.

Market disruptor LeEco redefines Indian mobile market with two flagship superphones-Le Max & Le 1s

                                   —Indian consumers to plug into a new ecosystem era

Market disruptor LeEco officially announces of entering into India

Market disruptor LeEco releases two pioneering flagship superphone products

Long expected LeEco destined to disrupt the cluttering mobile market with game-changing products

Market disruptor LeEco brings a phone with the world’s fastest processor and another with the world’s fastest battery charging

 

LeEco releases Le Max, a premium phone owning the fastest processor

Atul Jain, COO of Smart Electronics Business, Le Eco India, who used to serve in Samsung as the Senior Vice President at South-West Asia Regional HQ, introduced the 6.33 inch screen Le Max as the premium phone of the company. This phone’s slogan, “Go Big, Go Bold” was the brainchild of a Le Superfan, and its eUI (Eco User Interface) was constantly improved with feedbacks from more than 200,000 users worldwide.

Le Max is backed by the world’s fastest processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, which is primed for better multi-tasking and unrivaled performance, all thanks to an octacore processor and the phone’s 4GB DDR4 ram plus 64GB or 128G storages.

To prove the phone’s outstanding performance, LeEco compared Le Max with several other international brands by adopting AnTuTu Benchmarking Scaling, which showed Le Max leaving other flagships with the same Qualcomm 810 processor, like HTC one M9, Sony Xperia Z5, in the dust with a performance score of almost 84,000.

20160120_160326

The 6-piece lens 21Megapixel rear camera with Sony’s IMX230 sensor and Optical Image Stabilizer make sure the best and sharpest picture and video quality even in a dark environment. The Dual tone flash has two sources of light with different color temperatures ensuring the user getting the best balance of light when clicking pictures at any time of the day. An even better performance than the latest iPhone 6s.

LeMax is also the world’s first phone with a 2K display and a 21 MP camera.
The front camera with a wide angle 5P lens and F2.0 aperture allows people take the best selfies and groupies. And a more user-friendly design is when taking selfies, people can just touch the fingerprint scanner at the back to capture photos or videos, making a large phone of a 6.33 screen easier for life.

Le Max also boasts of the best in class Hi-Fi audio experience with features like noise-reduction, lower surface noise, better frequency response and higher power output capacity. LeEco has partnered with AKG Acoustics, a world-class audio equipment professional company in Europe, to develop the Le Hi-Fi experience which delivers a powerful, undistorted sound that music professional have trusted for almost 70 years.
The full metal unibody design out of aircraft grade aluminum makes the phone fashionable and sturdy, and Le Max is also the world’s first full-floating glass, which is a Sharp Screen exclusively for LeEco, and bezel-less design, reaching an unmatched viewing experience.

20160120_160333
Atul, COO of Smart Electronics Business, Le Eco India, said Le Max will be available in 2 colors- shimmer gold with 128GB and titanium silver with 64GB of memory, which would be for flash sales since February 2nd on Flipkart.

LeEco also released a top-end variation of Le Max at the event. Le Max Sapphire has the same specs with Le Max except its display screen, which is a 6.33 inch sapphire. Not only expensive and looks elegant, this sapphire screen is as hard as a diamond.

The Sapphire version of Le Max is pink color, which requires exceptional skill to create. It will have sales based on invitation and only has a limited stock of 1000 units.


LeEco releases Le 1s, the disruptive flagship

Besides Le Max, LeEco also released a flagship killer, Le 1s, which was released in China in November and in a short 2-month, LeEco has sold more than 3 million Le 1s, the best seller in China and other markets.

Le 1s is equipped with Helio X10 Turbo, the flagship processor of the year with outstanding features and performance. It not only gives users the best multimedia experience and gaming experience without any lag or interruption, but also allows a quick charge which means 5 minutes charge for a 3.5 hours of talk time.

 
A good comparison with Le 1s is iPhone 6s plus, according to Atul. Although both have the same screen size, Le 1s’ body length and width are 7.1mm and 3.7mm shorter respectively than 6s plus, which means less bulk, but more screen ratio for Le 1s. And the 7.5mm thick Le 1s weighs only 169 g, an even 23 g lighter than the same screen sized iPhone 6s Plus.

Le 1s’s rare 13-megapixel camera is definitely worthy to mention about. Equipped with blue glass infrared filter and ISOCELL, a technology interprets every single detail back to life, the camera could capture the finest picture never a phone could make before.

20160120_170559

And thanks to the adopted three core focusing technologies, namely PDAF, ball bearing VCM, Closed Loop, the camera could focus in a blink of eyes, 0.09 second. This makes the phone a best choice for sport fans, who can capture finest and un-blurred picture even in a fast-moving sports game.
Le 1s has also the world’s fastest fingerprint recognition technology, which can unlock the phone from any angle within 0.15s with 99.3% accuracy, and the phone can maximally add 5 fingerprints. Le 1s also has the world’s first mirror-surfaced fingerprint scanner which could be a gospel to appearance-loving persons.

The full-metal aircraft grade aluminum unibody makes the phone scratch proof, for which competitors can hardly offer the same level of resistance. Users can erase their worries of having other hard or sharp objects in their pocket which may scratch the phone.

A big outstanding and unique feature of Le 1s is its type-C port and fast charging technology. Different from traditional charting ports, which may need users to fumble twice in connecting correctly, type-C port is a two-way charging and customers can charge either side up.

And Le 1s has its unique fast charging technology, ensuring plugging for 5 minutes in return for 3.5 hours of talk time, which is rarely seen with other existing brands.
Le 1s is such an art piece that it even doesn’t have a single screw in its body, which is even not achieved by iPhones. Le 1s might be the world’s only metal unibody phone featuring a screwless industrial design, which upholds breathtaking minimalism.

The super-slim body and bezel-less industrial design makes Le 1s a great choice for business and entertainment and for almost all age groups. This is why LeEco called Le 1s as “the Super Model”.
The price of the two flagship superphones are also shocking, not for its high end, but for its below production cost pricing strategy.
LeEco disrupts the market by publicizing standard BOM cost in the industry, selling phones lower than industry cost
During the launch event, LeEco even publicized the standard industry BOM cost. BOM (Bill of Materials) is a list of the raw materials, sub-assemblies, intermediate assemblies, sub-components, parts and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product. Never ever a producer or a manufacturer would publicize the industry BOM cost, as no one would want others to know its profit margin.

However, LeEco is the first one around the world to do so. This move could greatly disrupt the market and force other brands to publish their BOM cost also to let consumers make the wisest choice.

LeEco sells Le Max and Le 1s at a price based on the industry standard BOM cost. The Le Max is sold for 32,999 and 36,999 Rupees for 64G and 128G respectively, while Le 1s’s price is even more attractive, 10,999 Rupees. And worth to mention that LeEco is building a network of 555 service stations in prime locations around India, providing 24*7 multiple languages services to customers. And the warranty policies are all above the industry lines. For example, within the 1 year warranty period, user can get a brand-new Le Max if the phone is broken or not working, saving the headache of waiting for weeks to get the old phone fixed and take back.
For the invitation-based Sapphire version of Le Max, the price will be 69,999 Rupees.

LeEco unveils near-future content plan and other strategies

During the two-hour launch event, LeEco also unveiled its near-future content plan. LeEco announced a strategic cooperation with Eros Film Company over content cooperation.

Ms. Jyoti Deshpande, CEO and MD of EROS International, said on stage, “Content consumption is surging across consumers with patterns changing rapidly and internet entertainment networks replacing traditional, linear television. At Eros International, we have always strived to bring to our users the best of Indian entertainment, offering them the same unified experience across screens. Our partnership with LeEco is part our philosophy to provide customers entertainment whenever and wherever they want it. We are delighted to partner with LeEco which is the next-generation vertically-integrated conglomerate which too believes in offering an online environment complete with content, devices and applications. Together with LeEco we are assertive to provide our consumers an integrated ecosystem which we are confident that they will love.”
Also LeEco will also work with YuppTV, which will provide 250 live channels across 12 languages, offering entertainment, news, movies, music, kids, lifestyle and spiritual content.

All this content will be available on Le SuperPhones in quarter two of 2016.

LeEco will have flash sales for Le 1s exclusively on Flipkart, the largest e-commerce platform in India, on February 2nd. And for the premium Le Max, the exclusive sales will start on Flipkart on Feb 16th. And for anyone who buys Le 1s on February 2nd, the consumer with an Axix Bank card can get 10% cashback. An important note is due to the limited stock of Le 1s, 60,000 units, consumers have to register for flash sale from January 21st.
LeEco pays so much attention to Indian market that it plans to build a large-scale R&D center in Bangalore within 2016, with more than 1,000 people, covering Super TV, Super Phone, accessories, LeMall, and Clouds etc.

LeEco is facing a huge but cluttering market in India. The way it does has already arouse strong market interests, like disruptive market strategies and unique ecosystems, and like Atul Jain, COO of LeEco India, said, “We are facing one of the most promising markets in the world, and LeEco hopes to sustain its legendary story here.”

GROCERY BAG – KHARI BAOLI AT YOUR DOORSTEP

Grocery Bag

 

Bored of hearing complaints about how the raisins just don’t taste good enough? How the pulses no matter how expensive and how well made just fail to impress you or your family members, especially your parents who just cannot stop gushing about the quality of the pulses from Khari Baoli? We at Grocery Bag, understand why you shop at the local store for your pulses and dry fruits, for convenience!

Don’t worry, your wishes (or your parents) have finally been answered, Khari Baoli with all its goodness is just a click away.

Started in July 2015, Grocery Bag (Grocerybag.in) is an extension of a legacy, a favorite amongst its customer’s since almost 200 years. The business based in Khari Baoli, the largest marketplace for grains and spices in the whole of Asia has been delivering the best grains and spices to its customers all over Delhi.

Their extensive experience in the dealing of grains, dry-fruits, spices and pulses has given them an edge to be the best in what they do. They have a hybrid marketplace model, where in each order is procured on‘On-demand’ basis from wholesalers who are carefully chosen for their expertise in specific product category. This allows Grocerybagto provide the best quality at a great price while maintaining limited working capital requirement and higher profit margins, making it a win-win for all!

Ayush Jain and TusharTyagi, currently leading the business derive inspiration from the functionality and easy to use products of Apple, which though technologically advanced have created a special place in the hearts of its customers because of their user friendliness. They plan on doing the same with their idea which they say is a specialized grocery model augmented through a convenient technology platform rather than a technology company supplying groceries.The founders observed that despite having technology at hand and easy access to organized retail chains, millions of people were still making monthly or weekly trips to chaotic yet specialized markets like Khari Baoli, INA etc- just in search for right products& quality. On the other hand, many people who had chosen convenience over quality were still conscious of the fact that they can get better quality products from such markets. Eureka!the idea of Grocery Bag was conceived- combining both quality and convenience.

As per Ayush, they have tried to put up the most relevant product categories on their portal with a very user friendly interface in order to give a seamless experience to customers. Apart from the regular branded products, their forte lies in a large number of specialized, local and rare products, which wereavailable onlyin specialized market till now. So next time you wish to eat Punjab kagur, Rajasthani Kair Sangri or even healthy quinoa you know where to get the ingredients from.

When asked about their future plans, they very confidently explained that their love for food drives them and will continue to do so. Their confidence is boosted by the fact that they have customer retention as high as 40% in the current model.

Their vision is to create the most trusted brand in edible grocery retailing.

Eventually, they wish to make it an omni-channel model with small retail stores supplied through a hub and spoke model, and backed by their online portal.

With high hopes from this business, they told that they wish to see their stores highly customized and dynamic in their product offerings as per each locality’s consumption pattern, determined by the purchase data obtained from their e-commerce and retail stores over time.Customers will be free to choose the mode of buying grocery, online, offline or a combination of both. And while that might take a little bit of time, they plan on winning their customers over with their existing model which takes convenience shopping to another level for all the Delhiites (for now).

 

Petainer Innopac – petainerCooler for Healthy and Safe Drinking Water

Petainer Innopac partners with Pune Mineral Water Association for healthy & safe drinking water

 

Mumbai, January, 2016: Petainer Innopac Packaging, today announced its collaboration with Pune Mineral Water Association to launch the petainerCooler™, a high quality 20L bulk Jar for the mineral water industry, which significantly improves the quality, consumer safety, increases strength & life cycles, reduces waste and drives significant supply chain gains (estimated economic savings of up to 30-40%). This collaboration will bring this game changing PET packaging solution for the water industry in Pune, with improved sustainability.

 

The Pune Mineral Water Association has 85 brands under its umbrella, out of which approximately 55 brands use the 20 litre bulk water jars. Based on the mutual understanding, the members have agreed to launch the petainerCooler™ Jar for the Pune market to promote healthy, sustainable and safe drinking water for the consumers. Petainer Innopac Packaging, provide customers with high quality, high performance and sustainable PET/plastics packaging solutions using the company’s advanced polymer engineering technology.

 

The alliance shows that Pune Mineral Water Association is extremely quality conscious, forward looking, continuously works towards consumer safety while enhancing the band image of the members. The extremely good looking, rigid and sparkling petainerCooler™ Jar is welcomed by the association and will be out in the Pune market in February.

 

Pune Mineral Water Association has also offered warehousing space to Petainer Innopac to store the Jars locally in Pune so that the members have easy, immediate and local access to the technology to meet any sudden surge in demands.

 

Vijay Singh Dubbal, President of Pune Mineral Water Association said, “The association constantly works towards reaching out and bringing to the members latest world class technologies which improve the quality of our packaging and makes our water safer for the consumers, while reducing our overall costs. We are pleased to associate with Petainer Innopac and to introduce the high performance packaging for our customers.”

 

Talking about this new collaboration, Atit Bhatia, Managing Director, Petainer Innopac Packaging, said, “The alliance resonates the feelings of the members of the Pune Mineral Water association who have welcomed this state of the art technology in their businesses to improve quality and consumer safety. We are very pleased with this association and look forward for working closely with our new Pune customers to deliver on our promise.”

 

 

Some of the important features of the 20 Litre bulk water cooler jar, petainerCooler™ are mentioned below:

 

  • It is the lightest 20 litre container available today, weighing 627gms
  • It meets the Indian BIS Standards and also meets migration test as per IS12252 and overall migration test as per IS9845
  • Makes water safer – It is washable at high temperatures such as 63 degree Celsius which makes it germ free as a normal PET container can resist the heat up to 43 – 45 degree Celsius, wherein minimum temperature that eliminates microorganisms such as Apergillus from containers is 62 degree Celsius.
  • It is seen that normal PET shows extremely high shrinkage rates if washed in high temperatures also it changes its color to yellow when exposed to sun. petainerCooler™ is highly heat resistance and has significant reduced shrinkage rates with high temperature washing, also more UV resistant when exposed to sun.
  • Unlike other plastic packaging such as polycarbonate, petainerCoolers are BPA (an element that has harmful health effects on humans and is banned in countries like France etc) free.
  • petainerCooler™ is stronger and robust compared to local PET and polycarbonate jars and it doubles the number of cycles. The standard PET can be reused at an average of 15 trips, the polycarbonate jars can be reused around 40 trips however the petainerCooler™ can be reused at an average of 60 trips. This also helps in bringing the total cost of ownership down by 30-40%.
  • Influenced with Prime Minister’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, with the longevity of the life of petainerCooler™, it reduces the packaging waste substantially. It decreases the overall cost and also facilitates high levels of reusability.
  • It can be customized as per the requirement and imparts no flavour to drinking water.
