Plotline raises $2.6m as it harnesses AI to boost adoption in the super app era

–News Direct–

As customer acquisition costs soar, consumer companies are rushing to find new ways to make their apps appealing by building super apps that offer multiple services. But with 50% of the global population expected to be using super apps by 2050, the competition to win and engage users is intensifying. Plotline, a startup enabling consumer app companies to rapidly and effortlessly customize their apps, has raised $2.6 million from Elevation Capital to improve user adoption and loyalty in the super app era.

Plotline was founded in 2022 by Shubham Jindal and Adarsh Tadimari, who previously led the business and AI teams at HyperVerge, a leading identity-verification SaaS company. The pair initially set out to help product teams get real-time app feedback, but quickly found that many apps were being underutilized because the majority of users werent aware of all of the available functionalities in the first place.

Shubham Jindal, co-founder of Plotline commented: "Mobile apps are adding a lot more functionality into their apps today compared to half a decade ago. This poses a unique challenge in how users navigate and discover these offerings. Through our work with customers over the past year, we see that influencing user behavior by making apps dynamic can be extremely beneficial for the company and end user. As apps transition from single-function tools to vertical super apps that offer multiple complementary services – they realized there was untapped potential in helping marketers and users unlock their apps' full value.

Today, Plotline helps consumer brands make their apps dynamic based on individual user behavior, analyzing billions of data points to create a personalized experience that drives significant improvements in app usage. This helps product marketers cut through the noise in a way existing customer engagement platforms are currently unable to. While those platforms excel at bringing users back to apps through channels like push notifications, SMS, and emails, they fall short in being able to influence the user within the app itself. Furthermore, by integrating LLMs for content creation and continuous experimentation, Plotline ensures that each user's experience is optimally engaging and consistently evolving.

This empowers consumer brands across the globe to skyrocket their user adoption and engagement rates.

Since launching just one year ago, Plotline has garnered significant traction among 50 consumer app teams, including industry leaders like Khatabook, BharatPe, CoinDCX, Niyo, Step, and Kredivo. Plotline has served over 150 million end users through its platform and has helped every customer improve implementation and experimentation speeds by up to 10x.

Strategically deploying its $2.6m seed round to bolster key functions across R&D, marketing, and sales, Plotline is now looking ahead to drive expansion in the US, Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific regions.

With the rise of vertical superapps, Plotline helps consumer apps cut through the noise and deliver the best in-app experiences through their no-code platform that allows growth marketers to craft and launch tailored UX campaigns. We're eager to support Shubham Jindal and Adarsh Tadimari on this journey as they redefine the dynamics of user engagement and drive unparalleled growth in this industry.

The growth isnt just in numbers. With apps turning multi-functional, theres a lot more ground to cover, and the role of app adoption platforms is becoming even more crucial. Were enabling both companies and their users to navigate the dynamic digital landscape, and the journey is far from over, said Shubham Jindal.
