Launched at mid-year, Link’s Park & Dine app makes parking and shopping at shopping malls and fresh markets even more convenient for customers. The app features real-time parking availability, recommendations and special offers at restaurants and shops, as well as the convenient ‘Find My Car’ function and the popular restaurant e-queuing function. Most recently, a grocery shopping and delivery service has been added, making it easier for users to cook healthy meals at home. The app serves several different customer segments, helping Link’s tenants to expand their customer reach.
George Hongchoy, Chief Executive Officer of Link Asset Management Limited, said, “In addition to continuously carrying out asset enhancement works in our shopping centres, Link constantly improves its customer service offerings by leveraging technology to make shopping an even more convenient and pleasant experience. Since the launch of our Park & Dine app, more and more customers have used the app’s online functions and enjoyed the many services offered at our shopping centres. We will continue to develop further functions for the app to meet the needs of both customers and tenants.”
