Partnering with Southeast Asia's leading ride-hailing platform allows Flexiroam to gain exposure to over 33 million Grab customers, providing a great opportunity for Flexiroam to leverage on Grab's extensive user base. In addition, Grab offers targeted marketing to specific segments of its user base that are considered ideally receptive to Flexiroam's offerings.
Managing Director of Flexiroam, Jef Ong adds "Both Grab and Flexiroam are asset-light businesses which are highly scalable with promising long-term sustainability. This partnership will increase our brand exposure within the South East Asian region and make Flexiroam X easily accessible to all Grab users. I feel there is a perfect fit to the business partnership as Flexiroam services will also benefit travellers who wish to contact their Grab drivers whilst overseas."
