Top Real Estate Builders partner with Reloy to improve homes in India.

Traditionally in real estate, customer service didn’t exist and the home owning journey has been quite problematic. Due to high cancellation fees, customers who purchased a property were stuck with the builder. They would endlessly follow up to get construction updates, project updates, invoices and documents. Builders, on the other hand, were concentrating on the product and everything involved in providing it – land, capital, project construction, sales, marketing and even working with local & state governments. With so much to manage, a good builder will ensure construction and payment updates are available but that’s as high as the benchmark goes. This inability to focus on customers and what homeowners aspire from their homes is what makes real estate an underutilized asset class.  

By harnessing Reloy’s technology, real estate brands are not only serving all their customer’s core needs but proactively going above and beyond with lifestyle benefits and now entering the era of digital amenities.   

Homebuyers approach the market emotionally, while builders approach it mechanically. This is a very large gap because a customer's aspirations from their homes vary and builders find it hard to keep up.  That’s why builders are partnering with Reloy to address this issue and give every customer a great home-buying experience. This has resulted in a significant increase in referral sales for various real estate brands for over five years now. 

“The fundamental premise of referral sales is that only happy customers refer. So, we do everything in our power to make customers happier and feel more at home.  This means meeting different requirements for different customers - senior citizens need very different things from their homes as opposed to a young couple.  This is where we come in and work with builders and third parties to provide specific digital amenities for the relevant customer segments. Our objective is to build communities around these groups and bring more like-minded people to live together. 

We have successfully launched loyalty programs & channel partner apps for various brands across India including Godrej, Srijan, SPRE and are planning to launch a few more this quarter. “ Akhil SarafFounder & CEO, Reloy 

Reloy has managed to win the trust of major real estate brands across all regions of India. Tier 1 real estate brands like Godrej Properties, K Raheja Corp, Shapoorji Pallonji Real Estate, Piramal Realty, Embassy Residential, Mahindra Lifespaces, Century Real Estate and Srijan Realty have partnered with Reloy in recent times in an effort and aim to focus on customer delight and thereby increase referral sales. 

“At Godrej Properties, we have always believed in doing our best to give our homeowners their little moments of ‘Everyday Joys’. With this vision we launched our loyalty and referral program Godrej Ambassador for our homeowners. Reloy, with its digital engagement capabilities, was a perfect fit to collaborate for this program. The team lead by Abhay and Akhil are passionate about the shared vision and are disrupting this space with innovative offerings. My best wishes to the Reloy team.”  Sarika Bedi, National Head - Loyalty & Referral Business, Godrej Properties Ltd.   

“We implemented Kee Club, a loyalty platform for Piramal Realty in partnership with Reloy and we can gladly say that the referral sales have significantly increased. Infact the sales have doubled in just a year Abhinandan Dsouza Piramal Realty  

With Reloy, every builder has an opportunity to get loyalty and referral sales at a faster rate through the ConnectRE App. Reloy has been able to scale up referral sales growth from 6% to 16% for one of their clients in less than 10 months. Apart from this, Reloy’s WinnRE app is specifically created for brands to manage their channel partner network more efficiently, thereby streamlining processes and increasing productivity two-fold.  

Reloy is currently operational in 14 cities and has offices in Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore. It is planning to expand across various other cities in the coming months.

Reloy (formerly Loyalie) is a real estate loyalty and referral sales solution provider founded in 2018 by CEO Akhil Saraf. The company focuses on building technology for real estate builders to manage the builder’s customers and channel partners.  The founding team comes from a diverse background spanning customer loyalty, real estate, social media and wealth management.

Swiggy brings in “The Great Khali” for a joint Big Birthday Bash!

Series of digital films featuring the veteran Indian wrestler have been released to depict the ‘heavy weight’ celebrations

Mumbai, August 18, 2022: As part of its campaign to celebrate its 8th anniversary, Swiggy has launched a series of digital films featuring “The Great Khali”. This year, the veteran Indian wrestler will join in to celebrate his landmark 50th birthday along with Swiggy’s Big Birthday Bash. To celebrate the special occasion with customers, Swiggy is hosting the biggest integrated cross-category celebration spanning across food delivery, Instamart, and a series of offline events covering 12 cities starting 16th August.

The organically shot commercials are an extension of the celebrations with Swiggy inviting the world-renowned wrestler to celebrate his special day with them. Swiggy’s TVCs have become widely popular among viewers owing to their fun and quirky content. Staying true to its style of short, wacky commercials with minimal dialogues, the commercials are peppered with wry humor and a generous dose of Khali, who is upset about Swiggy stealing his thunder with its Big Birthday bash.

The campaign started with a paparazzi video of Khali being upset with paparazzies asking about his birthday which went viral on the internet. In the next video, Khali stated the reason for him being upset was Swiggy's ‘Big Birthday Bash’ because of which his birthday celebration will look small. These series of videos are part of Swiggy’s Big Birthday Bash campaign which started on 16th August. 

The first ad opens with Khali and a Swiggy delivery executive at his home. The room behind is decorated with birthday props, disco lights and music playing in the background with Khali dressed in party clothes. The executive announces that Swiggy's “Big Birthday Bash is here!” and Khali blows a party horn to express his anger. As the slightly intimidated delivery executive continues to declare “top brands ki full menu, flat price par because its Swiggy’s Big Birthday Bash….” Khali interrupts him to assert that it’s his birthday too! Too scared to argue, the DE quickly changes the announcement to “Swiggy & Khali’s Big Birthday Bash is back!”

The remaining ads are similarly laced with wry humor, informing consumers in a witty way of the different discounts and offers available to them.

Commenting on the new campaign, Ashish Lingamneni, Head of Brand at Swiggy, said, “As we looked at different ways of creating excitement around our birthday celebrations and promotions, we found that the Great Khali also celebrates his birthday in August and is in fact turning 50 this year. This led us to a fun creative territory of Khali being peeved about Swiggy stealing his birthday month thunder with the Swiggy Big Birthday Bash. Through the lighthearted and organically shot ads, we invite all our customers to be a part of this joyful occasion by availing all exciting offers and deals.”

Captain of the ship, director Ratnaa Sinha added, “I am so pleased with the album Himesh has delivered, especially this song. The sequence required a light hearted and playful song and he charmed me over with this one. Easily amongst my personal favourites from the album.”

~ AIC-GIM looks forward to funding upcoming Web3 startups based in Goa ~

Mumbai, August 2022:  India’s first ever chain-agonistic Web 3.0 Conference saw tech-enthusiasts from across the globe converge at Goa for the three-day power-packed event. Atal Incubation Centre at the Goa Institute of Management (AIC-GIM) partnered with GirlScript Foundation to bring the event to the state and was attended by over 600 techies. 

Multiple speakers from various Web 3 associated companies like Alchemy, Solana, Lumos Labs, and Shardeum shared their knowledge with the curious yet driven audiences. Opportunities and challenges related to Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, protocols, NFT and many more were broken down at the conference over the course of the three days. 

Vitto Rivabella, Nader Dabit, Francesco Ciulla, Farza Majeed and Teguh K Harmanda were a few of the global innovators in Web3 who flew down to Goa from parts of Europe and the US to make an impact on the young minds present at the conference. 

When asked about his experience, Indonesia- based Teguh K Harmanda, COO TokoCrypto, said “This is my first time in India and definitely in Goa. I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful this tiny state is. It is very important for a country like India to have a specific region which can support the growth of blockchain and crypto. Goa very much reminds me of Bali, an island in Indonesia, which is slowly becoming a hub for blockchain development.”

Rajesh Joshi, CEO AIC-GIM Foundation said, “I have been following the concept of Web3 for a while and I can definitely say that I find it interesting. I look forward to the chance of funding upcoming Web3 startups based in Goa. Goa has tremendous potential to turn into an ideal ecosystem for the growth of startups in India. This doesn't mean we have to sacrifice the Goa we know and turn it into a concrete jungle. Something like Web3 can be given a space to thrive in the state while keeping in mind Goa’s authenticity. Through this event, we, at AIC-GIM, aim to expose Goans to the next era of the internet and trigger curiosity in them to explore its many facets.”

Workshops and sessions like ‘Create your own Blockchain within minutes’ by Blockchain veteran Aliasgar Merchant and 'Building your own Metaverse Application’ by Chaal Pritam, a Web3 builder took place simultaneously and garnered much attention and curiosity. This highly technological field is quite male-dominated and to encourage more women to explore it, a segment called ‘Women in Web3’ was also a part of the conference and consisted of panel discussions by some of the leading women in the field. They highlighted the challenges faced and some key moments in their respective careers, which moved the women in the audience greatly. 

When asked about the future of Web3 in India, Anubha Mane, Founder of GirlScript Foundation said “We can currently see that in Web2 companies like Google and Microsoft, even though the CEOs are Indians, these companies did not originate in India. That is one of the primary things we need to change. India has the labour and the intellect to achieve such heights. There is a myriad of opportunities in the field such as builders, developers, or marketers. I just want people to know that Web3 is not just Cryptos and NFTs. It is a valuable career option as a whole.”

A few budding entrepreneurs also had the opportunity to pitch their ideas to Buidlers Tribe, a Web3 incubator which AIC-GIM had previously partnered up with to launch a blockchain accelerator programme in the state of Goa.
