JustDial, an online
directory services platform,
 will be launching a new product in
August called JD Omni to help small business manage their online and offline
sales, JustDial founder and managing director VSS Mani told analysts in an
earnings conference call.

According to a Medianama
report, the JD Omni will be a plug and play, cloud-based solution which
can be accessed over cell phones via a dashboard, Mani explained in the analyst
call. The product will allow small businesses to manage their inventory,
billing, and third party logistics. The product will also allow businesses to
integrate bar code and QR code systems.

“As enablers, we
always think for our vendors and they would probably lose their market share to
online players. Hence we thought a cloud-hosted solution which can help them
manage their offline and online business through the Omni system. And
that’s what we’re rolling out this August,” Mani told analysts in the call.

VSS Mani also
said that JustDial’s payments platform will be launched in the next quarter.
“So once we launch the JD App by next month or September that’s when we will
have the JD Cash go live. So hopefully the next quarter after that well have JD
Cash go live,” Mani was quoted in the report as saying.

In August last
year, Justdial had first said that it was planning to introduce JD Cash, a payments platform integration for
its Search Plus suite of services.

Earlier this
year, Mani had said that they were looking to launch JD Cash sometime between April-June 2015, during the
company’s Q3-FY15 earnings conference call. JD Cash was again delayed in the preceding quarter and Mani
said that the beta version of JD Cash is ready and they’re currently
testing it. Justdial wants to be “100% sure about the way we go about it”,
because it involves financial transactions.
