Price Comparison Site (http://www.mysmartprice.com) for India which caters to Mobiles and Books. The intent is to search for the price of Mobiles and Books from major online stores in India and gives users the best price of the product he or she is looking for.Started by two young entrepreneurs Sitakanta Ray (Ex Oracle, IIM Bangalore, Ex ICICI) and Sulakshan Kumar (Ex Oracle, Ex Infosys), who have left their high flying corporate jobs to pursue their passion. Both are at the moment working our of their apartment in Hyderabad.
The entrepreneurs say on the value propostion, "The goal of MySmartPrice is to provide the best (lowest) price for any product in the easiest way possible. We are trying to build a fast and intuitive interface that requires less number of clicks. That is one of the reasons why we built an auto-suggest from ground up instead of going for apis available from international players. The minimalist look of the site should enable users with slow internet connections to use it without any hassle. (We have tested the website on mobile device and it loads up well). The site is hosted on Rackspace cloud servers."
Moving forward, MySmartPrice plans to move beyond mobiles and books and include price search for other product categories as well.
Detailed interview of the entrepreneurs will follow.
