Hello! We are dwelling in the age of super apps. Yes, super apps have started gaining importance in several countries, primarily in SouthEast Asia. What do you think is the reason for the hype around super apps? As these apps provide numerous online services, users can opt for their service from a single app from taxi to other delivery services. Cool, right? Alright! In this blog, we will be circling over the development of a super app for your business.
Before getting into the crux, we are going to make the content interesting by revealing Tata’s plan for launching a super app. Let us get started!
Tata Is Set To Launch A Super App In India Soon
A well-reputed TATA group based out of India is soon to launch a super app. The company has been leading in providing services in different sectors for the past two decades. There isn’t any sector that is left untouched by the TATA group.
Recently, Tata has announced its acquisition of BigBasket and 1 mg. Why is this acquisition really important? The company has set up a plan to launch a super app, for which it is acquiring BigBasket to offer grocery delivery services and 1 mg for pharmacy delivery services.
Currently, the company has subsidiaries in various sectors like Tata Cliq for e-commerce, Trent for fashion stores, Croma for online electronics. The company is about to integrate all these services into a single app, thereby making it a super app.
Does Reliance Challenge Tata’s Super App Venture?
Reliance Industries, a multinational company, based out of India, aims to launch a super app. The company has closed a 5.7 billion USD deal with Facebook for setting up its super app. This partnership of the company with Facebook has set a challenge for Tata in launching the super app. Currently, the battle for launching the super app in India is at the peak as two big industries Reliance and Tata, have stepped in.
Tata’s Big Move To Acquire BigBasket And 1 mg
As said in the beginning, Tata has closed deals with India’s largest grocery delivery company BigBasket and 1 mg, an online pharmacy delivery service company. You may be wondering why Tata is particular about acquiring BigBasket and 1 mg. Here is the answer.
BigBasket is known to be the lion of the online grocery delivery service business. The company claims revenue of more than 1 billion USD every year. To be more specific, the company reported that the sales have elevated to 48% after the pandemic. Also, the company stated that they are getting around 20 million orders per month.
On the other hand, the company is said to buy 55% of the stake of 1 mg to integrate on-demand pharmacy delivery services. While Reliance has already acquired NetMeds for providing e-pharmacy services, a cut-throat competition stays ahead for both Tata and Reliance. We will have to wait for their super apps to go live and witness the winner.
Paytm and Hike – Obsolete Super Apps Of India
Paytm, a well-known platform to make online fund transfers tried to emerge as a super app. The company integrated Zomato and MakeMyTrip with the intent of offering multiple services. But the app lacks the chat feature. Though users love an all-in-one app, the chat feature is what they are looking for. Failing to integrate the chat feature was the major reason for the app to exit super apps.
Hike is a famous instant messaging app that is also based out of India. Started as a messaging app with plenty of exciting features, the app aimed at exposing itself as a super app by integrating multiple online services. As a flip, the super app model didn’t work out and faced a clean exit.
The major failure of these two apps lies in the fact that people run behind apps or services that provide huge discounts. This is more applicable to Gojek, which attracts users by providing them with frequent promotional codes. Therefore, if you are offering a business, know what your users are eyeing.

Once users sign up, they are directed to the app’s main page, which lists the number of on-demand services. They can book single or multiple services at the same time.
Once your users select a particular service, they will get an alert on that service’s cost. Users can confirm their service based on the cost.
Expected time of delivery
The app’s algorithm will let users know the time at which the delivery is expected to happen.
While we claim that the app has real-time features, how to leave the live tracking feature? Yes, using this feature, users will be able to track their delivery person. To be more precise, this feature will let users know the current location of the delivery person.
