Unicommerce's clients include Snapdeal and Jabong besides ecommerce players in Southeast Asia and Canada. The firm claims that the platform manages over 1.5 million product shipments per month across more than 50 warehouses and 1,000 concurrent users globally.

"Unicommerce is fulfilling a growing market need in India and overseas for simple, easy to deploy and use order, inventory management and fulfillment platform for online and offline businesses. We are excited about the opportunity and delighted to partner with the bright and nimble team at Unicommerce," said Anup Gupta, MD, Nexus Venture Partners.
