Local food delivery service platform, GoMamam has expanded its repertoire to include retail and pharmaceuticals with the release of its new and improved mobile application, with updated features that promise to deliver convenience, accessibility and customisation.
The new features and updates were made available to the public on 28 February however GoMamam officiated the new release with a launch event last week held at the 118 Residence in Kg Kiulap.
During his welcoming remarks, GoMamam CEO, Hadi Wahab recounted the company’s humble beginnings in February 2020 when the app only featured four merchants.
Three years later, however, that number blossomed to more than 500 restaurants and the platform has evolved beyond food delivery, with the platform’s latest iteration featuring two new categories including retail and pharmaceuticals.
“Our team of home-grown Bruneian talent, which started with 10 dispatchers and office staff, has steadily grown over the short few years to more than 1,000 dispatchers and 45 office staff,” he said.
In light of all these milestones, GoMamam will continue to seek advancements in the near future, according to the CEO, hoping that in the long-term, GoMamam can play an integral part in Brunei Darussalam’s Digital Economy.
“We at GoMamam, are dedicated to providing opportunities for stable employment and skills development to our locals in this evergrowing tech sector,” he continued.
“So as one of the local pioneers in this sector, tech companies like GoMamam aspire to provide market-competitive salary and personal development opportunities to attract skilled workers,” he added.
Hadi then went on to express GoMamam’s commitment in contributing to the Brunei Vision 2025 by being a key player in the development of economic opportunities within the landscape of IR 4.0.
“We look forward to venturing into more new projects in hopes of pushing Brunei Darussalam into a more digital nation and InsyaAllah one day to expand the services of the country beyond our borders,” he added.
GoMamam is currently one of the top food delivery apps among Bruneian residents, with over 100,000 registered users and over 1,000 daily orders.
Present as the Guest of Honour at the event was Hj Mohammad Nazri Hj Mohammad Yusof, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Transport and Infocommunication and Pengiran Mohd Amirrizal Pengiran Haji Mahmud, Permanent Secretary (Sports) at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports.
