National Telco, Indosat Ooredoo
NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Weyland Tech, Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL) a leading global provider of mCommerce platform-as-a-service (PaaS), eCommerce managed services and fintech solutions, has partnered with Indosat Ooredoo, Indonesia’s second largest telecom provider, to launch a nationwide marketing campaign for Weyland’s CreateApp mCommerce platform.
To drive signups, Indosat will offer the more than 6 million small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) in its nationwide subscriber network a 30-day free trial subscription to CreateApp. Indosat’s internal sales teams will lead the effort, with its customer service supporting the end-users. Indosat SMB customers who subscribe to CreateApp will be billed through their Indosat cell phone bills. Weyland will provide Indosat an ad channel on CreateApp via Google AdMob.
The CreateApp platform-as-a-service enables businesses to create and deploy native mobile applications for Apple iOS and Google Android without technical knowledge or background. It empowers SMBs to increase sales, reach more customers, manage logistics, conduct financial transactions, and promote their products and services in an easy, affordable and highly efficient way. The CreateApp user base, comprised of businesses across Southeast Asia, grew 47 percent last year to more than 360,000.
“This major marketing campaign with a trusted and large telecom provider like Indosat greatly expands our market reach in Indonesia where there is strong smartphone penetration and virtually no competition for DIY app platforms like CreateApp,” noted CreateApp’s chief product officer and founder, Eddie Foong. “This campaign also presents up- and cross-sell opportunities for AtozPay, our fintech solution for businesses to go cashless in a market where 60% of the adult population is unbanked.”
The Indonesia market has the fastest adoption of mobile apps, as well as the largest and fastest-growing Internet economy expected to grow at a 49% CAGR to more than $100 billion by 2025, according to Adjust Global App Trends 2019 Global Benchmarks Report.
“Our DIY app platform is a great fit with Indosat’s subscriber base, allowing users to easily market, promote and sell their goods and services via mobile,” commented Weyland CEO, Brent Suen. “CreateApp offers a valuable, unique and much needed solution for Indosat’s subscribers looking to compete in the fast-growing mCommerce and eCommerce markets. For Indosat, we see it creating more loyal and engaged business customers.”
Weyland’s recent acquisition of Minneapolis-based Push Interactive is also expected to provide lead-generation tools for Indonesian SMBs to increase their online sales.
