Home services platform Recommend gets a Boost with e-wallet collaboration
By Digital News Asia December 6, 2019
- Service vendors can free technician teams from handling cash
- Boost takes another step in building robust cashless digital ecosystem
Leading Malaysian e-Wallet Boost has announced a strategic collaboration with Recommend.my, Malaysia’s leading home services platform, to enable customers to order home services through the Boost app.
This collaboration means that homeowners have a new and convenient way to pay their service providers. For example, after a Recommend.my pro completes an aircon servicing, the homeowner can pay with Boost, while also getting cashback for the amount spent. The service providers don't need to handle cash, and the homeowner does not need to worry about having lots of cash at home while work is being done.
“We are always looking to partner with innovative service providers like Recommend.my who share a similar vision of bringing convenient digital solutions to users. With this relationship, we are building a robust cashless digital ecosystem where Recommend.my adds value to Boost for our nearly five million users while we offer the convenience and security of going cashless for Recommend.my users,” said Mohd Khairil Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer of Boost.
Recommend.my was launched in 2014 and connects thousands of customers to the most reliable and trusted contractors for jobs such as renovations, home cleaning, aircon servicing, and 50 other services. All service professionals are verified, rated and reviewed by previous customers for quality, service levels, timeliness and value, with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
“We are very excited about this collaboration, because it means that millions of Malaysians can now order our services through the Boost app, with the security of cashless payments. Our service vendors are also looking forward to freeing their technician teams from handling cash, which reduces risk while on the road” said Jes Min Lua, cofounder of the Recommend Group and country GM for Malaysia.
Along with this partnership, Boost and Recommend.my are offering a special promotion for homeowners. From now until 31 Dec 2019, 20 lucky customers who pay for Recommend.my services with Boost will win 100% cashback from Boost. 20 lucky customers will also win a RM100 voucher to book any Recommend.my service.
