JOMPARKIR Sdn Bhd provides a smart solution to enable users to have a better parking experience. JomParking, as it is more commonly known, recently inked a partnership with GrabPay as its latest payment option for JomParking users to top-up their token and to pay for their monthly passes.
“JomParking is extremely excited about this partnership. We are proud to be partnering with Grab. The new payment option is a good alternative in helping Malaysians to reduce the pain points in parking payments such as cash issues, hassle in finding parking coupons, or loss of a parking ticket. GrabPay, as an e-wallet alleviates the inconvenience that all our users have to go through on a daily basis,” said chief executive officer Muhamad Nasir (pic).
GrabPay Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines managing director Ooi Huey Tyng added, “Being only a year in the industry, we are fortunate to be able to collaborate with esteemed partners like JomParking who share our vision of a digitally-forward and seamless cashless lifestyle to enhance the convenience of our customer’s everyday life.
“Leveraging on innovation, this partnership does just that while helping to serve their end-users better through an integrated solution. For startups like JomParking, who are significantly cash-based, we also hope to assist them to increase their productivity while saving on business and operation costs. In the long run, this would enable them to be more focused on serving their consumers that much better."
Nasir added that it has been the company’s goal to work with government authorities or bigger brands in building a cashless society here in Malaysia.
According to the Assistant Governor of Central Bank (Bank Negara), Adnan Zaylani Mohamad Zahid during his keynote at the recent Malaysian E-Payments Excellence Awards (MEEA) 2019, “Payment service providers must rethink their strategies to remain relevant and be sustainable in the long run. Today, going cashless is more than just e-payments.
“Instead, it should be about putting customers at the core of innovation to address real pain points and drive greater value creation. This means delivering integrated solutions to enhance the value proposition to end-users.
JomParking’s partnership with GrabPay will lead towards encouraging less usage of cash and more transactions via e-wallet.
In addition to that, JomParking hit a huge milestone as they recently expanded their coverage to the Middle East. Earlier this year, JomParking expanded to Sri Lanka as part of their first international expansion.
In conjunction with the expansion to the Middle East, JomParking has added the Arabic language in this latest version to provide ease of app usage to Arabian users. JomParking hopes to further broaden their coverage to other parts of the world and to continue expanding throughout Malaysia as an innovative parking solution provider.
