- Aims to launch a feature where users can collect parcels from the eziPOD locker
- Available in over 30 locations in Klang Valley; to expand to 200 lockers by end 2021
EZIPOD, the 24/7 smart locker laundry service announced its partnership with Southeast Asian shoe and sneaker care company, Shoe Mo to expand its service to shoe cleaning under one seamless app.
eziPOD is aiming to launch a parcel feature where users can collect their parcels from the eziPOD locker, after courier services drop them off.
With eziPOD’s recent partnership with Shoe Mo, users can drop their dirty shoes off at the eziPOD smart lockers, where the company would pick them up and deliver them to Shoe Mo for processing. eziPOD will then pick the cleaned shoes up and deliver them back to the smart lockers, ready to be picked up by the user.
“Now that eziPOD’s smart locker service extends to shoe cleaning and the soon-to-be-launched parcel management, users with busy schedules can be rest assured that their belongings will be well taken care of until it is time to go home with their owners.
“Our vision is to continue innovating the use of the smart lockers as it will ensure a seamless and reliable process from the moment users drop off and pick up the items” explained eziPOD chief operating office and co-founder Venon Tian.
According to a recent article by Business Insider, outsourcing daily chores like laundry can help make people happier and less stressed . The article quotes Harvard Business School professor, Ashley Whillans, who explained that getting rid of stressful or tedious things from our to-do lists frees up more time in a person’s life, allowing them to spend it with family and friends, thus leading to increased happiness.
It is with this sentiment in mind that the team at eziPOD provides its all-rounded cleaning service for both clothes and shoes as well as the upcoming parcel pick-up service to ensure that Malaysians everywhere can enjoy their free time more fruitfully.
Available in malls, condominiums and office towers across Klang Valley, the company’s 24-hour smart lockers make dropping dirty laundry and shoes off at any given time possible.
On top of that, eziPOD’s technology ensures the safety of belongings by having the smart lockers operate on specific QR code access, unique to the user for whom it is generated.
“Nobody likes to see dirty clothes piling up at home and it’s difficult to be in the mood for laundry, especially after a hectic day at work. We started this 24/7 smart locker laundry service to solve this problem so that people will have more time for themselves after work while eziPOD takes care of their laundry,” said Tian
Founded by Venon Tian and his team in 2017, eziPOD app can be downloaded via Google Play Store and App Store. Currently, eziPOD is available in over 30 locations around Klang Valley and aims to expand to 200 lockers by the end of 2021.
