TapOnn Digital, a one-stop networking platform that allows users to exchange professional and personal information with a one touch, was founded in 2022 by Dhruv Jolly. The Indore-based firm focuses on NFC (near-field communication) technology, which enables devices to connect with one another while they are close to one another.
TapOnn products include smart coins, smart sockets, and smart cards that are based on a smart chip mechanism that allows user data to be sent to a phone with NFC capabilities. The items are supported by an app that allows users to view their networking data from a single platform. TapOnn includes a scanner for scanning paper visiting cards, insights and analytics into the relationships, and the ability to create several profiles.
It uses a direct-to-customer (D2C) business model but can only offer smart devices. In addition to the most utilised or tapped platform, the analytics tool also keeps track of the number of networks made and where they were made. To deliver a seamless experience across all channels, including mobile, online and in-store, TapOnn employs an omnichannel strategy. A website called TapOnn offers the sale of smart coins, cards, and sockets. It is in the midst of signing up on several online markets, and it wants to work with offline firms to erect kiosks in the stores.
An administrator may manage all employee information and profiles using the control panel for employee smart cards. It also links its API with any company’s automation and CRM software, making it simpler for employees to book events and meetings, update contact information, and automate marketing. The app has roughly 1,000 users, and the startup has 150-200 daily active users. It charges a one-time cost ranging from Rs 1250 to Rs 1750 for smart cards and from Rs 999 to Rs 1,499 for the smart sockets. In November, it earned Rs 94,980, in December it earned Rs 2.16 lakh, and in January it earned Rs 4.5 lakh.
In the following six months, it hopes to generate Rs 25 lakh in income every month. TapNi, TapIt, Popl, V1CE, and Scube are its competitors.
