BUSINESS proprietors in Petaling Jaya can now utilise a new mobile app to promote their businesses and reach out to customers.
Traders and riders can use the Bazar@Pjkita mobile app available on Google Play store to advertise their products and services, while customers can search for what they need.
“This (app) allows traders and entrepreneurs to increase their income and not be left out of the changing business environment, ” Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) said in a statement.
MBPJ is encouraging operators and traders to register with the app to fully enjoy its features.
Apart from the app, business operators can now renew and apply for business permits and licences online via the smart licensing system.
Applicants can also print their licences via the system without having to physically go to MBPJ counters.
“This will be an integrated system whereby other agencies such as the police, Fire and Rescue Department as well as MBPJ technical agencies can provide their input for any licence applications, ” MBPJ said.
Apart from digitising its services, MBPJ has initiated various programmes and assistance to hawkers (micro entrepreneurs) of the B40 group in Petaling Jaya.
Some of the initiatives include providing temporary permits for traders at their original site, but according to allocated sessions.
“The sharing of the space will allow more traders to operate there and earn an income, ” added the city council.
To date, MBPJ has issued 401 temporary permits under the programme.
A pilot project for micro entrepreneurs has also been implemented at PJS 2/18 in Taman Dato Harun and the next one will be in Jalan Camar, Section 4, Kota Damansara.
