App-based Delivery Services

Dennis Ng, Mober's founder.

If there’s one thing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the Philippines need to improve on, it’s how they manage their logistics – specifically, how to effectively deliver their products to their customers.

If delivery systems can just be a piece of cake for large multi-million companies, for small- and medium-type businesses it can practically result into a nightmare. Just owning and maintaining a delivery vehicle can eat up into your budget, and there remains the problem of monitoring your goods to ensure that it goes to their rightful destination.

All budding start-up creators know that investment – in short, money – is a vital component of their success as a venture.

Online Grocery Pioneer

Online shopping, or e-commerce, is fast transforming into one of the Philippines’ most successful business sectors.

As a matter of fact, a recent study released by credit-card company MasterCard showed that 59% (or three out of five) of the Philippines’ online population access the internet for shopping.
