In a move to cut costs, Gurgaon-based online marketplace Snapdeal has reduced travel of staff drastically.


The company said on Tuesday that it has witnessed a drop of 50 percent in travel expenses by moving to online meetings across its offices.


“Snapdeal has been encouraging a culture of efficiency through all office operations and as a part of it, both intra and inter office meetings and external appointments are being held online,” a company statement said.


The company which is struggling to raise funds against bigger rivals Flipkart and Amazon is now resorting to use whatsapp video call and face time for quicker resolutions and action points without physical meetings. The company has its offices in Bangalore, Gurgaon, Mumbai and New Delhi.

“At Snapdeal, we are steadily and decidedly moving towards profitability. Small changes in operational routines can make big leaps for the organisation’s quest of efficiency. The drop in our travel expenditure is an example of the same,” said Saurabh Nigam, Senior Vice President – Human Resources at Snapdeal.
