Tinvio is a communication and commerce platform built around the idea that merchants and suppliers should be able to work smarter together.

Tinvio helps small and mid-sized merchants manage orders with their suppliers through a chat-led interface. Today most of these merchants in F&B, retail, and health supply chains across Asia still place orders over email, WhatsApp, or phone calls, while invoices and payments are largely exchanged in paper form. This makes it tedious for business owners to keep track of their orders, accounts, and receivables. It also makes credit scoring and financing inaccessible, in turn restraining businesses from operating more efficiently.

Tinvio’s frictionless chat-to-order experience enables users to send messages and orders to their suppliers in just a few taps. The mobile app also creates powerful digital ledgers of all orders, invoices, and issues for real-time monitoring and analysis.

Headquartered in Singapore, Tinvio is currently available in multiple cities and languages in the Asia-Pacific region. In the six months since its launch, its user base grew to over a thousand partners across the region, with a 50% monthly user growth and 80% user cohort retention.

Tinvio was founded in Singapore in July 2019 by Ajay Gopal. Prior to launching Tinvio, Ajay worked with Rocket Internet in Berlin. Before that, he was a fintech investment banker in Credit Suisse in London, and had held product ownership in a Silicon Valley startup. He also co-founded a startup that was acqui-hired while in university.
