Following a successful four years as an on-demand delivery and errands service provider in Malaysia, GoGet has prepared to step up its game through offering its tech to other firms.
Chief executive officer and co-founder Francesca Chia explained that the company is embarking on what she describes as an application platform-as-a-service that allows companies to utilise a distributed workforce more effectively through GoGet’s technology.
“We realised that our biggest asset is the GoGet platform that we use to assign, manage and track the jobs performed by our GoGetters. This is not a pivot mind you, we are still very much focused on the core GoGet business where we get commissions from jobs but this is a new business model built on top of our existing one,” she said.
The yet-to-be-named service is said to help companies better manage their current workforce and allows them to tag them and assign jobs. “There is definitely a lot of potential when you let the workforce curate itself and load work for itself that is in a conducive manner,” Chia said.
For Chia, the ‘Eureka’ moment came when a number of corporations approached GoGet to ask about using their technology to help manage their distributed workforce. This would include servicing jobs that require installations or repairs to be performed. It extends to other tasks like distribution of flyers, data collection and traditional dispatch jobs, that GoGet performs.
