Seattle-based Amazon‘s innovations in India are being adopted by its teams from across the globe including its U.S. and European e-commerce arms, Terry Hanold, vice president of Amazon’s international consumer technology, said.
The Times of India reports that a successful innovation, called “seller flex,” allows a seller to make their location available for Amazon to store inventory and help them receive an additional stream of revenue. “We saw customers benefit and that idea has been scaled out to other Amazon marketplaces, allowing us to expand our footprint without having to invest a lot in physical infrastructure,” said Dale Vaz, director of software development at Amazon India.
Amazon’s seller app has tools and features to help sellers do their inventory management and logistics better. “These are India specific tools that we built for sellers to help manage the business more effectively. Now we are rolling this out to other markets including the U.S.,” said Hanold.
Now, this is being implemented in other markets of the e-commerce giant.
