KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 13 — Now more than ever, businesses — especially small-medium enterprises (SMEs) — are embracing digitalisation to stay afloat during the challenging times caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
This was fuelled by an increasing demand for online shopping as people tend to minimise movements and stay indoors to keep the health risks at bay.
Some digital solution providers were quick enough to pave the way and help SMEs, home-based businesses and even big corporations to jump on the trend and adapt to the new normal.
One such solution was on-demand delivery service provider Lalamove.
Since day one, the company has persisted to one main goal: to empower local businesses and encourage business transformation through logistics digitalisation.
In doing so, the logistics provider now has over 250,000 regular and SME customers with over 1.5 million deliveries completed monthly across Klang Valley, Penang and Johor Baru.
Its fleet of multiple vehicle options offers fast on-demand delivery with an average of eight seconds instant matching time.
Designed to empower businesses
Lalamove definitely ticks all the boxes when it comes to digitalisation and logistics.
The business model was designed to assist all types of businesses and industries with better control over their business operation and logistics needs, especially now, as most businesses rely on digitalisation.
Simply put, the company has taken the term digitalisation beyond mere buzzwords.
The company’s pay-per-delivery system aims to help businesses save on fixed overheads like long term vendor contracts, vehicle rental or purchases, having full-time drivers and other maintenance commitments.
It has also streamlined its payment method to make the process even more flexible for its business partners.
SMEs can opt to set payment options to either auto-deduct from their credit wallet in the application or have it covered by the customer upon delivery.
The digital solution gives the freedom to SMEs from the platform’s commission charges.
What makes the platform even more strategic for businesses is its multi-stop and interstate delivery options for SMEs to expand their reach beyond Klang Valley, Penang and Johor Bahru to the rest of peninsular states.
It also supports API (application programming interface) to integrate SMEs’ websites or e-commerce platforms with Lalamove to make delivery arrangements a breeze.
Additionally, Lalamove offers business accounts for SMEs to enjoy the aforementioned benefits, as well as offering the account holders a dedicated account manager to receive consultations and customer service support.
The on-demand logistic company has rolled out an SME trial pack to help businesses enjoy even more perks. Picture courtesy of Lalamove.
