Measat inks MoU with Parcel365 and M2B Services on Digital Village365 initiative

KUALA LUMPUR: Measat Global Bhd has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Parcel365 Sdn Bhd and M2B Services Sdn Bhd to collaborate on the Digital Village365 initiative.

In a joint statement today, the companies said the initiative aimed to uplift rural communities and stimulate digital economic activities for B40 communities.

The statement said Parcel365 would offer logistics and e-commerce platform services as well as training sessions at suitable CONNECTme NOW high-speed WiFi hotspot locations identified by Measat.

It said through Parcel365’s app-based smart locker pick-up and drop-off services, rural residents could overcome the challenges of lacking a proper address for pick-up and delivery in remote villages while its sister’s platform, Shopla365, offered e-commerce platform support and business solutions as well as training.

"These services will be facilitated through Measat’s CONNECTme NOW WiFi hotspots powered by its high-speed satellite broadband service to enable digital applications including transactions, communications, training and other relevant use cases,” it said.

Measat chief commercial officer Ganendra Selvaraj said the partnership is hoped to introduce Parcel365 logistics and business solutions to CONNECTme NOW customers and enable the customers’ e-commerce potential.

"At Measat, we firmly believe in the power of the digital economy and its ability to uplift rural communities by opening up new income streams that optimise the productivity of the residents such as the sales of unique foods and crafts,” he added. - Bernama
