Dingdong Delivery and E-Commerce platform launches in the Philippines
Dingdong, a full-service tech-solutions company led by Dingdong Dantes, has officially launched in the country. It is a home-grown startup business that is said to address everyday needs and provide a livelihood business to Filipinos.
In partnership with Multisys Technologies Corporation, led by David Almirol Jr., Dantes started his new venture, Dingdong, which is said to deliver “professional malasakit.”
Dingdong initially started as a business idea when Dantes handled a personal delivery service for his wife Marian Rivera-Dantes’ flower shop, Flora Vida. Dantes has revealed that he decided to step up and do the delivery himself.
After a year, Dantes, along with a collective of friends who are now his business partners, decided to pursue the idea and give last-mile delivery service and technology solutions to individuals, businesses, and communities.
“As Dingdong evolved, we realized we could do more than professionalizing riders and empowering merchants,” said Dingdong Dantes, CEO of Dingdong. “By offering a web of solutions that is user-friendly and efficient, we enable more businesses and create more jobs, transforming lives through technology and excellent service on a much larger scale,” he added.
Dantes also mentioned that this quality service is also applicable to businesses who rely on services to keep their operations efficiently running by addressing lack of automation, difficulty in promoting and selling products online, as well as rider welfare concerns.
By providing e-commerce and delivery solutions through comprehensive, but user-friendly platforms for business owners and riders, Dingdong is said to empower businesses by eliminating the need to book a third-party supplier to have orders delivered from the marketplace and help entrepreneurs gain more control over their business through its Dingdong Delivery and Dingdong E-Commerce solutions.
With Dingdong Delivery, companies have access to a web- and app-based pick-up and delivery tool that they can use for on-demand and pre-booked deliveries using Dingdong Riders or the company’s own rider fleet. Dingdong Delivery also comes with user-friendly tools that allow real-time management of riders by providing tracking data on delivery status, estimated times, traffic, and rider location.
Dingdong Riders are also required to undergo training covering work-specific skills like road safety, first aid and proper food handling, and life-enhancement skills such as financial management and spiritual fortitude. Dingdong also provides rider training programs for other companies.
Moreover, Dingdong E-Commerce also allows companies and businesses to aggregate with other merchants in a unified digital marketplace. Dingdong E-Commerce provides auxiliary training in general business topics like branding, accounting, taxes, and product-specific topics.
“I recognize that my first business venture is show business, and my strength lies in telling stories and realities through my craft. This time, with Dingdong, I will be able to share stories of our merchants, who we intend to grow with; our riders, who we want to uplift and professionalize; and our consumers, who have been more discerning because of the new normal,” Dantes said.
