SEREMBAN, 4/10/2021 – Although the nation is moving towards a fully vaccinated country, with Negeri Sembilan having been categorised as Phase 4 since late September and allowing businesses to reopen, there are still some local and small businesses struggling to stay afloat having been deeply affected from the pandemic. In trying to give the businesses in Seremban 2 a boost of helping hand, leading property developer IJM Land has innovatively created and launched its first lifestyle-themed mobile application, LikeS2 – exclusively designed not only to provide its residents the latest developments and news regarding the township, but to also assist local businesses to promote their services and reach out to the wider community in Seremban.
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused many businesses to suffer losses and even closed – every country from East to West, every level of community, businesses big and small, none are spared. With businesses now trying to pick up its pace albeit rather slowly with the Government’s recent announcement that economic sectors can reopen, IJM Land is taking in its stride to help out these businesses by instantly connecting communities with the services that they require at their fingertips.
Dato’ Hoo Kim See, Senior General Manager of IJM Land Berhad said that developing this app for the community not only will it give businesses in Seremban 2 a leverage in helping them to stay in communication with their existing customers easily, but it also offers the opportunity for them to approach an even wider market than before.
“The pandemic along with all the MCOs have forced businesses to shutter down or unable to flourish as they 、 used to before. The LikeS2 app helps businesses to go online and, at the same time, present new opportunities for its residents to find a new source of income. We at IJM Land developed LikeS2 in the hopes that it will help the Seremban 2 businesses to reconnect with the community again or even help those who are out of jobs to find new ways of income,” said Dato’ Hoo.
