The ICT boom in the South East Asia region has opened the floodgates of progress in the e-commerce area and online transactions continue to add value to the users in this landscape.
With the aim of promoting e-commerce progress and catering to the diversified needs of online customers seven notable ventures in Pakistan from the Asia Pacific Internet Group (APACIG) have partnered with wi-tribe to further enhance their online solutions.
As part of the collaboration, wi-tribe has optimized APACIG's Pakistan websites to reduce loading times for their users by 30%. This update will appear on seven company sites: online shopping community Kaymu.pk, real estate classifieds Lamudi.pk, car classifieds Carmudi.pk, online food order delivery service foodpanda.pk, bus travel platform Clickbus, hotel portal Jovago, and online retailer Daraz.pk. In addition to that, wi-tribe and APACIG ventures are also offering customers a range of discounts while using these online platforms.
This partnership is a collaboration between APACIG and wi-tribe to promote e-commerce in Pakistan and support the flourishing online community in the country. In an effort to boost local entrepreneurship, wi-tribe will offer Kaymu.pk sellers special discounted packages that provide faster and easier Internet access.
Wi-tribe's CMO Ali Fahd expressed his thoughts on the partnership stating,
"Wi-tribe and its partner companies are abreast of the online needs of the customers in this era of e-commerce and interactive transactions. Dynamic companies cannot be complacent to this paradigm shift in the way online users do business, shop, buy, sell or make any transaction digitally.With the shift in customer preference, companies are also aligning their business strategies to fulfill these on-the-go needs of their customers and continue to find ways to add value to their online experience."
This step marks the first of many synergies as the two organizations work towards building a sustainable and user friendly e-commerce landscape in Pakistan.
A satisfied customer Magdalena lugo who resides in Tabata insists that "Tanzanians should now wake up and think out of the box. We need to let go of our old and inconvenient ways and quickly react to such opportunities to make our lives easier. I was very worried because I had not even begun to shop for Easter and the entire clan was coming over to my home. I didn't have nice outfits to put on and neither did my kids. I was so stressed on how we would look. Kaymu was a miracle, I managed to buy each and everything on the same day and when they delivered it to my home I could not believe it. I have no worries now and I believe everybody will be very happy on Easter when they come over to my home. Thank you so much Kaymu. Tanzanians there is nothing to fear, let us wake up my friends".
