Australia's online marketplace for furnishing & fitouts. I need it, I'll Sawce it!

Upcoming Sawce Pty Ltd

Furnishing & Fitouts – A Fragmented $50 Billion Market

In Australia alone the furnishing and fitout (F&F) market is very large.

 

  • 48,000+retailers
  • 2M+commercial and consumer buyers of $50B+ in sales annually
     

The market comprises 30+ very different sectors including furniture, flooring, lighting, fixtures, art and more, for commercial, home and office spaces.

 

But the industry is highly fragmented, with over 40% of the retailers being small and medium-sized, with little or no online presence but with great products to offer.

 

At the same time, buyers are increasingly wanting to go online to source furnishing and fitouts for their space.

 

Finding and comparing all the products from hundreds of different retailers is next to impossible. Sawce solves this problem by bringing all of those products into one centralised and indexed place to search and buy.

 

Buyers range from consumers (families, couples, you and me) to industry professionals (architects, interior designers), right through to businesses and large corporations.

Sawce (Furnishing & Fitouts)

Sawce.com.au is the FIRST and ONLY online marketplace dedicated to furnishing and fitouts - where buyers search, find and purchase products from the largest live index of products across retailers available anywhere.

 

Sawce.com.au allows customers to find and purchase products with one or multiple retailers directly on the platform, mixing-and-matching products across retailers to get the best solution all in one place.

 

For larger or more complex needs, Sawce also allows customers to connect with retailers and get bespoke solutions.

 

Sawce.com.au is the Domain and RealEstate.com of the $50B Australian furnishing and fitout industry.

Special Sawce (Making it Easy for Buyers & Retailers)

Underpinning Sawce is its unique proprietary marketplace platform. Scalability is designed into the high tech platform and smart business model, thanks to the automated integration of retailers and retailer product data, ensuring a low cost base is maintained as revenue is scaled.

 

Retailers can easily set up and start selling on Sawce almost instantly, and customers have access to the largest, ever-increasing online index of products across Australia related to furnishing and fitouts.

 

Because the Sawce platform and search engine are designed around product data, you are able to dial in very specific searches to pinpoint the products that best meet your needs, whether that is based on product type, size, colour, material or style.

 

To get the look you want, you may need multiple retailers, so Sawce makes it easy to find, compare and buy products from multiple retailers.

 

To get more sales, retailers need to be visible to more customers and increase their online exposure but have limited or no funds for advertising.

 

Sawce.com.au brings together buyers and sellers through its proprietary marketplace IP to capitalise on the $50B F&F industry.

Building on the Success of its Pilot Site

The best tech companies test, assess, refine and evolve as they de-risk the business and pursue continuous growth. In order to learn and achieve the optimal business model, the company developed and ran an operational pilot site.

Key Achievements

  • $2.9m in network sales to retailers
  • Gross margins over 90%
  • Average order values of $1,500 ($2,300 for commercial)

 

With zero advertising spend, the pilot has 30,000 users per month. All will be redirected to Sawce.com.au.
