Glocar Informatics and Media Pvt Ltd. for the first time reaches to paper media in The Cofounder Magazine after the continuous hardwork of two years by the founder Mr. Sujay Gupta and his team members with the aim to break the information barrier between customers and car dealers. So here is a gist of what happened in Glocar in past two years.
The idea was developed on 6th Nov 2015 and the company was named GLOCAR, short for Global Cars. The company, was registered on 12th Sept 2016 under the name Glocar Informatics and Media Pvt Ltd. Gradually we became a member of Start up India, FICCI, CII, NASCOM and also an ISO 9001:2015 certified company.
Understanding the need of the hour, we want to make the user's automobile ownership experience fantastic! After reading car reviews, researching and deciding on which car to buy, we also researched about the dealerships to ensure that the customers are getting a fair price, a good deal and a great service experience. Glocar gives them real reviews & ratings and provide them with a platform to share their dealership experiences with others. With dedicated engagement and management tools, Glocar also enables, dealers to spend more time focusing on their services provided which translates directly to a better automobile experience.
Glocar was founded by Mr. Sujay Gupta. Before founding Glocar, Sujay(SG) was in a senior management postion at Mercedes Benz. He has also worked with brands like Jaguar-Land Rover, Audi alongwith working in the banking sector with brands like ICICI and Citi Bank. Now the team comprises of almost 30 dynamic people working together including Sumit Kumar Upadhyay (SKU), employees, freelancers and interns.
