Weyland Tech’s AtozGo Expands Popular Food Delivery Service to Residential Consumers in Jakarta
JAKARTA, Indonesia, April 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Weyland Tech, Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL), a leading global Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider of mCommerce, eCommerce and fintech business enablement solutions, has expanded AtozGo™, its popular food delivery service for office workers in Jakarta, Indonesia, to the city’s residential tenants.
The extended service area and hours of operation allows the city’s urbanites to use the AtozGo mobile app to order food from local grocery and convenience stores, as well as other household services, including dry cleaning, shoe repair, maintenance, cleaning and water bottle delivery.
Powered by Weyland’s m-Commerce technology and the AtozPay™ mobile payment platform, AtozGo allows users to easily pay for their deliveries and services using their AtozPay e-Wallet. Many city tenants have already been using the AtozPay fintech solution to pay their phone, utility, rent and other personal bills, with more than $24 million being transacted on the platform annually and growing.
AtozGo makes delivery of food or services from local establishments quick and easy, and over the last eight months since its launch, the number of AtozGo registered users has grown to more than 105,000. The service has also attracted more than 1,000 delivery people, up from 680 just a month ago, by providing very flexible hours and unlimited income potential. This rapid growth resulted in a record 17,500 orders delivered in a single day. Driven by the new residential launch, AtozGo’s customer base is expected to grow to more than 1 million by year end.
The city’s total residential population of more than 30 million, along with historically more than 3.5 million commuting daily, Jakarta was an ideal location to launch AtozGo. The company’s runner-based approach for a densely populated urban center like Jakarta reduces the typical delivery time by about a third, or around 15 minutes, as compared to competing services.
“Our launch into residential was long planned but recently accelerated due to the stay-at-home orders enacted over the last several weeks in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus,” noted Djunaedy Hermawanto, CEO of Weyland Indonesia Perkasa which operates AtozPay and AtozGo. “Last month, we began seeing workers ordering household items to the office, and realized they were doing this in order to avoid going out to the store later.”
“As anticipated, our success with AtozGo has attracted the attention of other larger delivery service providers who traditionally operate in areas that require motorized delivery,” said Hermawanto. “We’ve welcomed partnerships, like we announced with GrabFood last fall, and have continued to be engaged in a number of ongoing discussions that could involve a potential buyer of AtozGo or other major partnerships.”
“We’re considering these options since the valuations of app-based food delivery services like AtozGo are highly favorable,” continued Hermawanto. “If you look across the industry landscape, whether is an Uber Eats, DoorDash or Instacart, or even similar services in Southeast Asia, like GrabFood or Go-Food, the average value applied per user has been around $330. For AtozGo, this would imply a standalone valuation of more than $34 million.
“Today, these services are barely able to keep up with the rapid growth in demand, and analysts are predicting a permanent favorable change in customer behavior when it comes to home delivery. Combined with AtozGo’s unique approach to the market rapidly gaining ground, we see our value strengthening with every passing day.”
