Vice President-India,I took over the Indian operations of Logix in November of 2006 and soon took charge of Carazoo.com to design, develop, market India’s First Automobile Portal with Interactive Animations.
I was able to successfully redesign and re-engineer the portal from a plain car website to a full-fledged portal. Carazoo.com now attracts over 400,000 visitors and nearly 3 million page views a month besides generating around 22,000 leads a month.
Introduced the concept of "virtual showrooms" to car dealerships in India in June 2008 and now more than 25 of the largest car dealerships in India have virtual showrooms designed by Carazoo. Most of them have also been introduced to Online Marketing and all of them have enjoyed spectacular results.
In June 2008, Carazoo.com won the "Best Design" award presented by PCWorld Web Awards 2008. In December of 2008, Carazoo was awarded the "Website of the Year 2008" by Metrix Labs of Netherlands. The award was won against a stiff competition of over 18 automotive websites in India and was polled by online visitors.
In March 2009, Cap Gemini listed Carazoo as one of the 8 global entities (which included Yahoo, Ebay, Wal Mart) which will affect the "future of car dealerships". In August 2009, Carazoo became a Google Case Study for its tremendous success in Online Marketing
