Hong Kong – May 18, 2018 – Sharing Economy International Inc. (“SEII” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: SEII) today announced that its subsidiary, Inspirit Studio Limited (“Inspirit Studio”), will officially launch its re-branded mobile platform “BuddiGo” on June 1, 2018. By fully adopting the sharing economy model, BuddiGo seeks to optimize daily commuting trips for everyone. Once commuters (also known as “Buddies”) install and connect to BuddiGo, they can utilize their trips and time to make money by performing various daily errands and services for BuddiGo users including inner city delivery, food delivery and grocery shopping.
“According to our prior experience with our ‘Anyway’ app, we expect tens of thousands of Buddies to register on our platform by the end of 2018 in Asia. These Buddies are capable of handling thousands of daily errand requests for clients,” said Kurt Tam, CEO of Inspirit Studio. “BuddiGo is not only getting ready for the official launch of services in Hong Kong but is preparing to expand service coverage in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and other Asia regions by the end of 2018.”
“I look forward to the official launch of our revolutionary ‘Buddies’ model. We believe BuddiGo will generate significant value for society by utilizing and monetizing our daily commuting trips,” said Parkson Yip, Vice President of SEII. “In the past six months, the BuddiGo team has been working very hard to enhance the functionality of its platform to optimize services and provide a user-friendly experience for both users and Buddies. On our platform, anyone can serve as a Buddy and perform delivery, pickup or purchase requests from others, earn extra income, and save our users’ time and effort by providing errand services for them.”
Mr. Tam also revealed that BuddiGo is capable of analyzing the offline purchasing behavior of its clients based on the services requested. BuddiGo is determined to incorporate client feedback and enhance the quality of its services by fully optimizing its strong data analytics capabilities.
