With the pandemic raging around us, most of us have retreated behind closed doors and limited contact and social activities as much as possible.
This has increased demand for services in the e-commerce industry featuring online shopping and delivery of groceries, leading to bawiq being a key player in the industry. Bawiq introduces an entire supermarket on your mobile device. Grocery shopping is now at the tip of your fingers via your mobile device from the comfort of your home. Bawiq has a team of professionally-trained shoppers who carefully handpick your order – giving you the freshest fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dairy and grocery products.
Due to the lockdowns, most delivery platforms are struggling to fulfil their deliveries within 48 hours, with some taking a week, but bawiq can maintain its 90-minute delivery promise through its integrated cloud solution. Moreover, bawiq also allows customers to schedule orders at their convenience.
Bawiq began in the United Arab Emirates in 2017 and expanded to Malaysia in 2019. Due to the strong reception in Malaysia, bawiq moved its global headquarters to Kuala Lumpur. Bawiq currently serves the Klang Valley and the surrounding areas, and envisions 80% coverage of Malaysia within the next seven months.
In the next 24 months, bawiq will continue its expansion to Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam. Raj Lee, the founder and CEO of bawiq, aspires to create over 2,000 new jobs in Kuala Lumpur and 15,000 new entrepreneurs across Malaysia using his free startup programme called Mybawiq. Raj also intends to grow bawiq’s internship and training programmes for young Malaysians to help them get employed.
Bawiq cares for the needy and launched its White Flag campaign whereby it donated grocery packs to the less fortunate affected by the pandemic.
Bawiq also has a robust CSR programme that provides necessities and support to those in need. Bawiq provides weekly, monthly and seasonal deals with offers of up to 50% off daily products. Through its social media and push notifications, bawiq’s customers get to enjoy more rewards such as prizes and promo codes for discounts and cashback.
Safety is one of the top priorities of bawiq. All bawiq delivery personnel adhere to strict safety and sanitation guidelines by always wearing face masks and gloves while on duty. All staff members have their temperature checked regularly while the company is finalising their Covid-19 vaccination with the Health Ministry.
To further protect its customers, bawiq ensures that all products are sanitised and placed in tagged sealed bags.
These measures, along with its promise of delivery within 90 minutes and other conveniences, have made bawiq a top choice among Malaysian consumers.
