Truebil, the omni-channel platform for buying and selling of pre-owned cars, has reinforced its tech backbone by joining Google’s Sand Hill programme in India. Through this association, the platform endeavours to improvise, build and strengthen its tech products through the best use of Google’s mentorship and expertise provided during the course of the programme.
Sand Hill is an ongoing programme which started in 2012 by Google. It offers mentorship and support to progressing companies and works with them across product areas to help them overcome any possible technological barriers to enter into key markets and become the next generation of top companies.
Truebil has the 150+ startups that have been a part of Google’s Sand Hill programme globally over the past three years. Eleven of these startups have already achieved a billion-dollar evaluation, and now, Truebil too will work to leverage benefits from Google’s vast knowledge bank, international network and support system.
Through Google’s Sand Hill programme, Truebil plans to address specific areas of its platform like the Progressive Web Application (PWA) for higher conversions and engagement, AMP, Firebase RTD for Truebil’s dealer-centric app and Tensor flow for building machine learning models.
Rakesh Raman – Product Head, Truebil, said, “We always strive to improve our user’s experience and in this age where Indian users are used to global tech products like WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube and Uber, the performance expectation has gone very high. Through the mentorship by the Google team, we’ve been able to build a faster and more accomplished web that is enabling us to keep on delighting our users. It feels incredible to be a part of the prestigious Google Sand Hill Program, which is at the vanguard of technology innovation, and we are now looking forward to deriving the most out of it.”
Truebil was launched in 2015, and has also introduced its full-stack model Truebil Direct that maintains a unique online to offline integration. Truebil Direct enables buyers to shortlist and buy best-quality cars directly from its offline dark stores with a 1-year comprehensive service warranty, 1-year Roadside assistance, and 1 free servicing.
