Founded by two close friends, Parnsind Hantrakool (CEO), and Wattana Viriyasitavat (CTO), ShoppingIS is aiming at being the go-to destination for shoppers for the mobile era. It is a visual discovery tool for fashion products on smartphones. In ShoppingIS, users can follow and purchase from a wide variety of fashion brands and famous e-commerce stores in Thailand. What makes the app unique is that it focuses on user experience, in which the system automatically updates, filters, and tailors contents to user's feed, as well as allowing users to share items with other users in the ShoppingIS network, and publicly through social media. ShoppingIS is confident that Priceza’s partnership will lead to growth and strengthen the company.
The three founders of Priceza foresee tremendous growth in Priceza with ShoppingIS. Priceza, which is a keyword based search platform combining with ShoppingIS, a visual based search platform, will enhance browsing experience to users.
“ShoppingIS is a strong visual fashion product discovery platform on mobile phones. It is a good synergy with Priceza, which is a strong product search and price comparison shopping platform. Together with Priceza, ShoppingIS can grow even faster by accessing sellers from the Priceza platform, and effectively utilizing shared resources. Moreover, sellers can enjoy wider access to larger groups of consumers in both platforms.” - Thanawat Malabuppa (CEO and co-founder of Priceza)
