India’s Spiritual Market Enters World of Mobile-commerce with Wheresmypandit app

Mumbai, 7th October, 2015/PRnewswire/- Puja rituals are an integral part of Hindu culture. In order to stand out from numerous startups, currently competing with each other in the spiritual market domain, and to cater to millions of Hindus worldwide, WheresMyPandit has entered the field of mobile-commerce with the launch of its mobile application.

Built for Android users, WheresMyPandit expects an increase by three times for both inquiries and sales after the launch of the application. And, post the launch of the iOS application near to the Diwali season, it will multiply by nearly five times.

Not only can you book a pandit with a simple click through the application, but in the future, you can also chat or talk to the pandit to help you with various intricacies such as Muhurat timings and information about the puja on a real-time basis. A real-time tracking of the panditji will also be made available so you don’t miss out on your muhurat timings while the pandit is on his way to conduct the puja.

A user-friendly interface combined with pleasant colour schematics and ease of operation makes this app a must-have for every Hindu. There are also plans to release this app in multiple languages so that anyone with a smartphone can have a smooth experience. In addition, the app can even be operated on a 2G network and consumes minimum Internet usage.

The other key feature of the app is the ‘spiritual knowledge’ vertical.  Basically, the feeds have been synced with Wheresmypandit.com’s Whatsapp service that provides you daily information about lessons from religious books like the Bhagavad Gita, Vedas, etc. along with tales from the Ramayana. Features to share the spiritual knowledge on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter are also available.

The programming and content development team takes pride in this unique value-addition service of their application and plan to expand the content in terms of starting an entire series of the heroic epic in Hinduism, Mahabharata, along with lesser known facts about the Gods and Goddesses to impart knowledge to every Hindu while getting them back to our beliefs and rituals that indeed is the rich culture of India.

Major future plans include integrating the entire Wheresmypandit.com’s website with their application in terms of both the services and products.  Additional devotional content is also to be added taking their application service to the higher altitudes of quality. By the end of this year, their core team has promised to be present on all platforms for mobile applications along with improvements in the user interface adding to the look and feel of the application.
