Zypher: Delivering Books of your Choice on a Rental Basis at your Doorstep

Zypher works on an asset light model where most of the books are with the users. It avoids capital costs on books as it procures directly from publishers and returns them when they aren't in use. The book renting facility is available to both individual and corporate users. They pay based on their usage (pay-as-you-go model) through which they avail free delivery and unlimited swapping benefits. And for business, the employees sign up and avail the same benefits, but the cost is borne by the employer. Zypher also creates a book club exclusively for the company so that they have a healthy discussion. It also sends book recommendations based on their domain to upskill themselves. It not only helps corporate clients with a remote library service for its employees but also sets up a library in your office. Reading space is created in the office where Zypher keeps books for anyone who wants to read in the office itself. Apart from setting up libraries for corporations, the company extends its service to cafes, restaurants, and premium hotels. Some of its clients are Zoomcar, Amazon, WeWork, Cowrks, 91springboard, Oyo-Innov8, and more. BFSI, pharmaceuticals, and research oriented organizations get trade journals, magazines related to their business and publications and more.
Zypher has a strong development team that is working on a lot of new features. One of the most attractive features is the recommendation engine which sends books based on user's interests. They connect with the readers on the app, exchange ideas, and share thoughts. The team is also planning on adding authors to the platform so that the readers can interact with them directly. While the platform is still in its infancy, the team is doing its best to keep it as seamless and smooth as possible for its users. "With other plans in the pipeline we are planning to go phygital very shortly. We are also planning to cater to regional language readers. We even want to extend our physical book offerings to eBooks, audiobooks, and add a service where we send short summaries of select books," he concludes.
