Utilizing a SaaS platform, Glamplus offers state-of-the-art solutions to optimize efficiency and productivity, including offline and online supply of beauty products, professionals, and personal care items.

Rohan Singh, Chief Operating Officer at Glamplus, outlined the company’s objectives, stating, “We are on a path to profitability by Q1 24 by creating an impact and reaching small business like salon and beauty stores where they can avail higher fulfillment, faster deliveries, and better pricing due to optimized supply chain with no middlemen. Our focus is also on providing quality, genuine professional products.  We are also optimising our product supply & delivery experience.”

Glamplus has witnessed a 12% growth in the last 12 months and is currently operational in Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, and Odisha. The company aims to extend its services to 1000 B2B beauty clients, ranging from luxury salons to beauty shops and supermarket chains, within the next 6 months.
