Tokopedia and Lazada to offer disinfection services through Seekmi partnership
According to Seekmi, cleaning services, particularly those with the goal of disinfection, are currently sought after as businesses start to open back up. The goal of the initiative, called Advanced Disinfection Service, is to ensure that homes are free from the COVID-19, stemming the spread of infection.
Clients can make use of the service, the price of which starts at around US$21 (310,000 rupiah) by accessing Seekmi's official online store. It's currently accessible for request in the entirety of Jakarta's metropolitan areas.
The initiative makes a number of cashless alternatives available for Seekmi users, as indicated by an announcement. Users can follow their request progress directly on Tokopedia and Lazada as though they were buying a physical product from their online stores.
The joint effort marks Tokopedia and Lazada's first venture into offering home and office services on their foundation and provides Seekmi with an advantage over rivals in the nation, like Klik N Clean, Sejasa, and Tukang Bersih.
Originally established five years ago, Seekmi has more than twenty thousand skilled and vetted experts, cleaners, and drivers on its service marketplace. Beside cleaning and disinfection services, the platform also offers plumbing, appliance maintenance, and dry/wet cleaning help.
Another platform to recently add specialized disinfection services to its list of services is GoodWork, which offers comparable types of assistance in the Philippines. GoodWork may remain as a contender to Seekmi in the area, as it intends to broaden its reach across Southeast Asia following a successful funding round of US$1.6 million in seed money in the week prior.
