We use our own software
We sell online, so we use our own software to help us save time. We understand our customers, because we sell, and experience the same trials and tribulations, and we aim for that to continue to be the case.
Solution to a problem
Browntape started as a solution to a problem. Back in our PhD days in the UK, a couple of our friends were selling stuff on eBay. They were persevering and lucky enough to start rolling in regular orders. However, they soon realised that it became extremely painful and tedious to process the orders to get them out the door and to the customer.
Ian and Piyush built a quick tool that could keep track of the orders and shipments, and the time consumed in processing the orders began to come down. That’s when we realised that there could be others who could benefit from the service and we put it out there, and called it Scrobbld. Soon there were others who started benefiting from the service.
Some work experience
As studying came to an end, Ian and Piyush went in search of some work experience.
Ian went on to writing programs to diagnose faulty marine engines and other machine learning applications in the UK, alongside being a guardian to Scrobbld.
At the same time, Piyush’s keen interest in user experience design led him to join a leading UX design firm in the sunny sandy land of Goa, India, where he enjoyed his time for the following few years.
The next phase
The ‘leading UX design firm’ was headed by Gurpreet. In four years under his leadership, the design firm grew from scratch to just under a million dollars in annual turnover. Geared with his business experience, Gurpreet decided to join Piyush and Ian to take Scrobbld to the next level.
A quick trip to the UK brought all three on the same page and they decided to go for it. Armed with the learning from Scrobbld, they started working on the next version of the service ground up. They called it Browntape.
Cutting edge technology keeps us striving for more.
Design is not an after-thought, it is embedded throughout the creation process.
Customer service is not a department, it is in every interaction of every employee.
What gets measured, gets improved. We use Browntape for our own selling.
