GOJEK collaborates with DOOgether to launch new feature GoFitness

GOJEK has launched a new feature called GoFitness in collaboration with DOOgether, a fitness studio, and a class-booking startup.

Users now can book hundreds of fitness classes and sports facilities ranging from Zumba, yoga, boxing to pound fit class in myriad fitness studios across greater Jakarta area.

GOJEK head of third party platform Sony Radhityo said since early this year, users have made an average 11,000 trips to fitness studio monthly, while also booking about an average of 600,000 healthy food orders per month.

GoFitness’ new feature is also integrated with GoPay, which allows users to pay their fitness booking class through the e-wallet platform.

In April this year, DOOgether raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding from Gobi Agung, with Everhaus, Prasetia Dwidharma, and Cana Asia also participating in the round.

DOOgether has partnered with over 200 fitness centers and/or sports facilities in Greater Jakarta, Bandung, and Bali as of March this year.

Bukalapak collaborates with Singapore’s Axinan, Sompo Insurance Indonesia

Indonesian e-commerce Bukalapak has launched an insurance service for goods in transit, in collaboration with Singapore-based insurtech firm Axinan and Sompo Insurance Indonesia, a local unit of Japan’s Sompo Insurance, the company announced on Tuesday.

The service features a full suite of digital-based operations with dynamic pricing and claims management. For gadgets and electronics products purchased from Bukalapak, customers can buy protection against accidental damages.

With the booming local e-commerce, the delivery service is automatically on the rise as well. However, the risks associated with goods during transit is often not a priority for retailers.
