BookServicing, an online car servicing platform run by StatSoft Technologies Pvt Ltd has recently raised Rs 20 lakh (about US$30,000) in seed funding from the National Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development Board (NSTEDB), a government arm that promotes tech enterprises.

“The funds will be used for developing solutions to optimize operational inefficiencies in the automotive aftermarket and enhancing the car-owning experience for our customers,” said Abhishek Rai, the founder of BookServicing.

Founded in April 2016 by Rai, BookServicing is a network of verified and authorized car service centers. At present, the platform works with over 200 dealers and multi-brand workshops spread across Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad.

The company itself, based in Delhi, works to assist its partner merchants in acquiring new clients while retaining existing customers by helping them to identify and plug operational inefficiencies.

Besides, BookServicing has tied up with original equipment manufacturers to automate the car service experience through remote analysis, assistance and by identifying personalized service needs of customers.

The innovative startup provides customers real-time updates as well as a tracking of the car service history. By adding contact details and information regarding the car, one can select the right vendor based on the facilities and their ratings to book an appointment.

With this, BookServicing is now on par with other online car servicing services – VOW CarClinic, GoMechanic, Carcrew, and Demyto, which have raised their fundraising in the past year.
