HISTORY

The concept of PlumSlice was born from the vision of its founder, Abnesh Raina, who was inspired by the trends driven by hyper-growth in digital he was living as he led the technology areas of major retail and B2B distributor companies – including Restoration Hardware, Williams Sonoma, B/E Aerospace.

The retail and distribution world was transforming and Abnesh recognized that buying and selling processes were becoming significantly complex for retailers and distributors and connecting with consumers was evolving. However, most existing backend solutions built for brick and mortar ecosystem were either inadequate, too expensive or too difficult to implement.

2014

In 2014, Abnesh founded PlumSlice, with the vision of providing enterprise-grade solutions to help companies plan, buy and sell smarter in a digital world much faster and at a significantly lower cost. Today, PlumSlice has grown to over 100 employees in the US and India, and is providing best-in-class solutions to numerous customers globally.
