Win-win financial solutions by EVOLET for employers and unbanked workers

Employers who pay their staff in hard cash face a number of unique challenges. Their workers also suffer a host of problems because of a cash-based salary and the lack of access to banking facilities. EVOLET can address both parties’ issues; at the same time, offer additional services to improve their quality of life.

A secure digital wallet, EVOLET offers an alternative to the conventional banking system and several other services.

EVOLET’s Salary Management System

For employers, the application takes care of salary management through the built-in payroll management system. This provides employers a simplified process flow with easy reconciliation, back up and record keeping. As a result, it reduces the risk of losing payment records and prevents mistakes arising from manual calculations. 

The salary management system in EVOLET also makes it safer and faster for all parties. It negates the need for employers to withdraw money from the bank thus removing the risk of loss from robbery or theft. This applies to workers too when they remit the pay to their families. Sometimes they need half a day each month for this task. 

EVOLET can cater very well to two groups of workers: migrants and lower income Malaysians. Whether documented or undocumented, many migrant workers have difficulty opening a bank account in Malaysia. According to the founder of EVOLET, Johnson Yu, it is not easy for certain nationalities to open a bank account even if they have employment permits and visas because their countries are red-flagged by Bank Negara. 

Many migrants also face a language barrier because they cannot speak Malay or English. That is why the EVOLET application has been translated into 12 different languages for nationalities such as the Nepalese, Bangladeshis, Filipinos and Indonesians, which make up over 60% of Malaysia’s migrant workforce.

EVOLET’s E-Remittance

Many migrant workers are forced to hold their entire salary in cash. However, they often have issues with security when they stay with a large number of other workers in the same house. Consequently, they end up remitting all their earnings to their families in their home countries, which leaves little for them to spend on basic necessities in Malaysia. 

The e-remittance feature of the EVOLET negates the need for workers to transfer money using conventional methods where time is wasted travelling and standing in line. Workers can remit using EVOLET anytime, anywhere using their mobile phones, as long as they have an internet connection.  

The conventional remittance method also entails large fees that shave a significant amount off their earnings – up to 30%. With EVOLET, these workers enjoy highly competitive exchange rates and are charged only a flat fee for their remittance. It is also more secure. The user will receive SMS reminders when the money arrives at the destination, or when they receive a refund in case the money does not arrive.

EVOLET’s Digital Wallet with Mastercard

The prepaid Mastercard comes complimentary with EVOLET. It enables the user to make a host of other cashless transactions without the worry of overspending. 

Users enjoy favourable top-up rates for selected telecom providers and also allows migrants to reload for their families and friends overseas. The reload isn’t just limited to mobile credits but also cash credits. 

With EVOLET, they can carry out online shopping for themselves and their families abroad. This is made possible with Mastercard which comes together with the e-wallet. 

Yu explains that some products in Malaysia are cheaper than other countries. “Filipinos working in Malaysia like to buy items here and send these back to their home country instead of remitting money,” Yu adds.

With Mastercard, they can also make use of e-hailing as well as other local products and services. This spending will contribute to Malaysian GDP and provide Malaysian sellers another platform to promote their products to a market abroad via these migrant workers. 

The Mastercard is also a way to help address the financial inaccessibility of lower-income groups, which EVOLET intends to target next. Malaysians using EVOLET can top up their e-wallet using Public Bank ATM machines or via FPX. The added bonus is that there is only a RM1.00 transaction fee for top-ups and there are no card-to-card transfers.

EVOLET’s access to other perks

Among them are micro loan services (cash advance), clinics providing flat fee on consultation fee, affordable insurance package and delivery of grocery packages. Work is ongoing to secure partners to cater all of these facilities in due time.

Signing up for EVOLET

Licensed by Bank Negara Malaysia, the e-wallet is especially suitable for the manufacturing industry and any other employers who remunerate workers in cash. Employers are charged RM1.06 per transaction and RM3.00 for a Corporate Bank top up, making EVOLET the cheapest salary management system in the market. 

Employers can either manage the salary system themselves or engage EVOLET to do it. The latter option involves a service fee.The onboarding process is simple. Employers only need to sign an agreement. EVOLET then handles the onboarding, e-KYC (electronic know-your-customer process) and the Mastercard credit card issuance.

Voon Tze Khay, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of iMedia, said: “We are excited with the prospects of Favful and the synergies of working with Sasha and her team as both companies share the same vision. Sasha has done a tremendous job in taking Favful to where it is now. Together with the wide reaching audience network and distribution strength of iMedia, we are confident in expanding Favful’s community to become a fully integrated digital platform in the media, commerce and influencer marketing business that will provide our customers and consumers the solutions and experience that matter. One of the key areas of focus is to accelerate Favful’s and all of iMedia’s brands social and live commerce initiatives and expand beyond the beauty lifestyle segment.

“The current technology behind Favful’s platform allows it to analyse the sentiments of our users and community’s voices, giving us the opportunity to understand their interest and demand better and will now be extended to the online websites of iMedia to deliver more targeted content that are relevant to our users”, added Tze Khay.

Living alone VS living with family? Whatever your preference, #YouBelong by EcoWorld has it

A home is a place of respite, comfort and safety. To some, home is where the heart is, where family is. To others, it is a sanctuary where one can truly be and express oneself. In order to truly understand what Malaysians think, EcoWorld collaborated with Newswav to carry out a poll to find out their living preferences.

The poll ran for a week and gathered over 10,000 responses from Newswav users of all walks of life. The results are both insightful and interesting:

  • Prefer to live alone: 14%
  • Like living with their parents: 27%
  • Choose to live alone but close to their parents: 53%

Some respondents even left behind amusing and honest comments:

  • “Alone is the best! Peace and quiet.”
  • “Alone but close enough to my parents so then I can just magically pop up whenever hahaha”
  • “Love my parents but walaowei my father snore[s] damn kau. Stay separately better”
  • “If you stay with your wife[,] better stay alone away from parents/in-laws. They can be near but not same house. Why? #happywifehappylife”

Regardless of your living preference, #YouBelong by EcoWorld has the solution.

(KUALA LUMPUR, Jun 21) F J Benjamin Holdings (FJB) said today that the AIRFREE® brand of air purifiers have been tested and certified to be effective in destroying 80.5% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus when released into a  controlled chamber.

The certification by MRIGlobal, a leading American non-profit research organisation, last month followed scientific tests conducted on an AIRFREE® purifier. Complete lab report can be found here.

While Covid-19 spreads mainly between people who are in close contact with each other, studies have shown that infections can arise from exposure to small droplets and particles of the coronavirus that linger in the air even after an infected person has left the area.

Last month, the World Health Organisation acknowledged that there is “emerging evidence” of airborne spread of the novel coronavirus, a change from its previous assessment that the virus is primarily spread by contaminated droplets that fell to the ground.

FJB Group Chief Executive Officer Nash Benjamin said: “The certification by MRIGlobal is a significant step forward for AIRFREE® air purifiers as it provides independent confirmation that AIRFREE®’s proprietary TSS (Thermo- dynamic Sterilisation System) technology is effective.

The manufacturer, AIRFREE® Products Electronics SA, is based in Portugal. It was founded by Carlos Matias, who developed its patented air purification system to help deal with his son’s recurrent allergic crises. The company’s products are distributed in more than 60 countries around the world.

Daniel Matias, Global Sales Officer said: “Most other air purifiers on the market capture airborne microorganisms using a HEPA filter, where they remain alive for some time. The AIRFREE®’s proprietary TSS which heats up to a temperature of 200 degrees Centigrade was created to silently draw bacteria, viruses, and other organic organisms into the ceramic core heated ducts to be destroyed by heat purifying the room, not by just capturing without destroying, and most importantly without any filters to replace.

This is a huge saving to the consumer and the environment. This also helps avoid hazardous air filter replacement, which could put the captured organisms back into the environment.”

FJB is the exclusive distributor for AIRFREE® products in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The Singapore-listed company, which is best known for its fashion labels, set up a Health and Wellness division and began distributing AIRFREE® products in the city-state last year.

Heavenly Home In The Heart Of A Lifestyle Hub

Imagine waking up every day to wonder whether you are still on vacation. You roll off your king-sized bed and freshen up in your private bathroom. Then, you take a 1-kilometer leisure stroll through a peaceful road shaded with lush greenery to the clubhouse. 

When you reach the clubhouse, you are greeted by your friendly neighbours. Together, you enjoy some exercises at the Aqua Gym. After that you take a bath and change into work attire. Then to reward yourself after a full day at work, you treat yourself to a spa before returning home just 10 minutes away. 

All of these are made possible at Clover @ Resort Residence, a freehold development in Bandar Sri Sendayan, Negeri Sembilan. Clover enjoys a central location within the township – a complete and self-contained development.

Amenities Worthy Of Envy

Those who live in Clover have the luxury of all the amenities one could desire, within fast and easy reach to boot. On one side of Clover there are commercial hubs, d’Tempat Country Club, Matrix Global Schools, Sendayan TechValley and several parks. 

On the other side there are more schools: SJK(C) Bandar Sri Sendayan, SJK(T) Bandar Sri Sendayan and SMK Bandar Baru Sri Sendayan. Beyond Bandar Sri Sendayan there are Mydin and AEON hypermarkets, more public schools, parks, hospitals and a shopping mall.

Modern Contemporary Homes

This 30-acre neighbourhood is crafted to give a resort feel and has 366 units of double storey terrace houses. There are two types of units available at Clover – Type A and Type B. All units have 4 bedrooms and en suite bathrooms, where Type B also comes with an enclosed, large backyard garden which offers the family a safe and secure spot to hang out. 

The interior of these houses is graced with premium finishing, laminated floorboards on the staircase and first floor, 2×2 ft tiles at the ground floor, alarm security system and voice intercom system.

Recreation Within The Vicinity

Found only in Clover, there are plenty of facilities reserved for you to stretch your legs within your immediate vicinity. For the health conscious residents, you have multiple outdoor gym stations for your daily workout routines.

Those with children will appreciate a beautiful playground with thematic circular designs sprawled throughout the recreational corner. A barbecue pit, sunken seating area and gazebo shelters await those who love to have outdoor picnics and parties. 

Only 1 kilometer down from Clover, there is d’Tempat Country Club – the resident clubhouse for denizens of Bandar Sri Sendayan. The club accentuates the luxurious feel of the township with its 6.33-acre verdant landscape. Aside from that, it is generously decked out with various kinds of facilities for all ages and tastes. 

Among them are a 10-lane bowling alley, jacuzzi, Olympic-sized swimming pool, children’s wading pool with play stations and water slides, VIP holding and meeting rooms, snooker room and spa. For those who are more sporty, there are courts for tennis, basketball, squash and table tennis. 

Space For Everyone In The Family

Space is something that a double-storey house can provide more than any apartment or condominium. When you are stuck in the house for whatever reason, personal space to work, study and play is critical for your physical and mental well-being. 

The two-storey link homes in Clover are big enough for this. The sizes range from 2,586 to 3,120 sq ft. Each unit has a living room on the ground floor and a family area on the first floor. 

Aside from that, all the bedrooms are also large enough to fit king-sized beds as well as a wardrobe and study table. You can work, study and rest within your own room without feeling cramped for space.

A Well-Planned And Self-Sustained Township

From the North-South Expressway, you can head north to reach Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) or Putrajaya.To the south of the PLUS highway is immediate access to Malacca and Johor Bahru. Using the South of Seremban-Port Dickson Highway, you can reach Port Dickson. 

For those who need to fly regularly, you can take the KLIA Linkage to easily reach KLIA and KLIA 2. Shopping enthusiasts will be glad to know they can use the link road to Sepang’s Mitsui Outlet Park, a popular outlet for shopping for imported luxury goods at discounted prices.

Easy Financing for The Tresor @ Gravit8 through HouzKEY

Mitraland Group has collaborated with Maybank Islamic for the HouzKEY programme. This is in line with the developer’s Tresor MyHome campaign to make its latest project, The Tresor @ Gravit8, within easy reach for all walks of life. The process is as simple as submitting an online application on Maybank’s website and clicking the Apply Now button. It is a convenient platform for homebuyers to apply for financing in a hassle-free manner.

Considering that buying a home is a big financial decision, it is worth finding out more about HouzKEY financing. The campaign eases the burden of high down payments for homebuyers who may find this to be a challenge when purchasing a home. Therefore, this programme makes it ideal for first and second time homebuyers such as single individual, young starters and couples, and new families. With HouzKEY, buyers will enjoy 100% financing with no down payment required. They only need to pay a 3-month refundable security deposit upon execution of the HouzKEY Home Financing Agreement. 

The financial scheme is serviced only after the property is completed and is in vacant possession, allowing buyers to save up during the construction period. On top of that, the HouzKEY financial scheme offers lower monthly payments with the best rates so as to ease buyers’ cash flow and reduce their financial burdens. 

The Tresor @ Gravit8 is Mitraland Group’s latest development in Klang South, Selangor. It is strategically located near Johan Setia LRT Station. It can be easily accessed via the KESAS Highway and other major routes such as the South Klang Valley and Federal Highway. Just down the road, there are schools, medical centers, educational institutions and retail malls. Orbix International School has also opened its first Klang Valley campus at the retail component of Gravit8 called Pier8. 

The Tresor is the third phase within Gravit8 and this freehold residential tower takes up 2.75 acres. It is due for completion in 2025 and has a gross development value of RM240 million. Designed with the classic Mediterranean Santorini theme in mind, The Tresor offers the best view among all the residential towers at Gravit8, as it directly fronts the 8-acre iconic Gravit8 Lakepark.

The Lakepark forms the centrepiece of the Gravit8 lakefront community which consists of residential towers, Pier8 Retail Mall, retail shops, while future developments will consist of offices, and a hotel. These components are integrated seamlessly to create a self-sufficient community for residents, occupants and visitors to have a comfortable transition from one zone to the next. The first floor of The Tresor is linked to Pier8 Retail Mall, giving homeowners convenience at their doorstep.

The units range from 952 sq ft to 1,206 sqft in size, comprising 3 beds & 2 baths to 3+1 beds & 2 baths units and are priced from RM516,800. All the units come with 2 parking spaces, except the largest type which allots 3 parking spaces. 

Special units at The Tresor called Parkhomes allow residents the luxury of parking their vehicles directly in front of their units, offering homeowners the best of both worlds – exclusive condo facilities with added security while enjoying the easy convenience of a landed property.  At Level 8, residents get to revel in a 1.3-acre facility deck that houses 24 facilities while the design concept is inspired by Santorini’s natural beauty, created to give homeowners the holiday at home feel all year round.

Mitraland’s CEO, Dato Andy Khoo emphasises that the company strives to stay true to their “Crafting Lifestyles, Creating Value” core values. 

“This collaboration between Maybank Islamic and Mitraland is a strategic move to encourage property ownership and help address the growing issue of homeownership affordability in Malaysia. We understand the dilemma faced by home buyers in these challenging times and economic uncertainties. HouzKEY is an ideal homeownership solution that helps home buyers to own their dream home now. We further welcome the announcement of the extended Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) to 31 December 2021 to stimulate the property market and help buyers in homeownership,” said Sally Lye, Managing Director of Maybank’s Real Estate Ventures. 

“At Mitraland, quality is never compromised and each component is expertly crafted and delivered under continuous supervision for quality assurance. We try to conceptualise projects that interlace character with functionality and quality with ingenuity; and this allows us to maintain our brand position in the marketplace.”
