Tata new app will be launched today


Today, April 7th, the Tata Group will launch its much-anticipated super app New (Neu). According to the company, this app will be available for download from the Google Play Store from then on. The Tata Group’s main goal is to expand the company’s digital division as a whole. So that already existing market players such as Amazon, Flipkart, and Reliance Group’s JioMart face stiff competition.

It is claimed that Tata’s new app will bring together airlines, hotels, medicines, and groceries on a single platform. A photo of the TataNeu app’s interface has also been released. Along with the dark theme, this app features a variety of icons that can be used for a variety of purposes. You’ll be able to book a car through the app as well. Let us try to figure out what this is. How will it differ from existing apps? What sort of work will this entail?

So, what exactly are these super apps?

In 2010, Mike Lazaridis, the founder of Blackberry, coined the term “SuperApp.” Even now, none of the super apps that have come out are from the United States, Europe, or the United Kingdom. A super app is a platform that contains all of the necessary goods and services.

WeChat is one such app in China. It began as a texting app. Payments, shopping, food ordering, and cab services were added after that, and it became a super app. You can also think of Super App as a mall, with shops of all brands, businesses, and verticals in the retail space.

Who Makes Super Apps in the First Place?

Typically, such businesses create super apps that provide a wide range of services and products. Through Super App, they are attempting to bring these services together on a single platform.

SuperApp was first introduced in China and Southeast Asia. To boost their revenue, WeChat, GoJek, and Grab began offering additional services. These businesses took these steps to increase customer traffic on their platforms, which were based on social media and communication requirements.

In the West Asia region, however, a different approach has emerged. Shopping malls, grocery stores, and entertainment businesses were all part of traditional business groups like Majid Al Futtaim Group, Emaar, and Chalhub Group. He developed digital assets that he then turned into super apps. It now has a variety of products available.

According to Internet consulting firm RedSeer, customer footfall on these business groups’ digital assets increased, as did the number of repeat customers. This became the foundation for SuperApp’s expansion in any field. Tata’s plan to consolidate its consumer offerings on a single platform is similar to that of Gulf business groups.

Why are Indian companies so interested in developing super apps?

When a large population wants more and more services and features from a smartphone rather than a desktop, a country or region is considered ready for a super app. A major reason for this is the lack of an ecosystem of apps to meet local needs.

India is becoming a market where the Internet is being used by a large number of people. 90% of subscribers now use their mobile phones to access the internet. As a result, most businesses are developing super apps. Apart from that, Super Apps can collect more data about user behaviour from consumer data while also increasing revenue.
