NEW YORK, July 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Weyland Tech, Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL), a leading global provider of eCommerce, mCommerce and fintech business enablement solutions, has partnered with an NYSE-traded global consumer internet company to offer its AtozGo™ food and grocery delivery service to the partner’s large and growing fintech user base in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Access to the AtozGo delivery service, which is currently available for both office and residential customers, will be integrated into the partner’s mobile e-wallet app, allowing users to transact AtozGo orders within the app. Through this integration, AtozGo will gain access to the hundreds of thousands of merchants and millions of users already on the partner’s platform.
This will represent the partner’s foray into the food and grocery delivery market in Southeast Asia. As a special promotion, the partner is offering users a 30% discount on AtozGo orders during the first month from launch.
The AtozGo mobile app will also be updated to include a new option for paying for deliveries using the partner’s mobile fintech technology. The mutual integrations are already underway and are expected to be completed in August. Additional details are expected to be revealed over the coming weeks.
“This major fintech service provider had many options but partnered with us because of AtozGo’s unique value proposition,” said Djunaedy Hermawanto, CEO of Weyland Indonesia Perkasa which operates AtozGo. “This includes our well-established base of merchants and customers, our strong brand presence in Jakarta, and our rapid growth over the last year. We also see the potential to expand AtozGo to other urban areas where our partner has a large existing user base.”
A recent online survey conducted by M2insights in January 2020 showed that Weyland’s new partner offers one of the top five e-wallets in Indonesia, with nearly 40% of respondents currently using its e-wallet technology to transfer funds and make electronic payments.
This news follows Weyland’s recent report that the AtozGo food delivery service continues to recover, particularly with the launch into residential Jakarta offsetting the earlier decline in orders from office workers during the coronavirus lockdown. Deliveries to residential Jakarta has now exceeded 800 per day, up from 500 as reported a few weeks ago, with orders being generated by more than 2,300 registered residential users.
The service has also attracted now more than 1,000 delivery people, up from 680 in March, by offering flexible hours and unlimited income potential. Merchants are also increasingly joining AtozGo, now totaling 35,000, up 9,000 over just the last few weeks. They are providing AtozGo customers a greater selection of household products and services, which supports larger and more frequent orders.
“Given these positive factors, we expect this new partnership to drive a massive acceleration in the AtozGo business which has already been growing strongly,” added Hermawanto. “We expect it to also elevate our profile in the industry and position us to attract other key partnerships.”
