The Startup That Bringing Breakthrough Discoveries To Market – Quinton Group
Uniquely gifted in sniffing out untapped market territories, Kenny and Alvin kickstarted Quinton Group in January 2018 after observing the ever-changing trend of Internet provider in China, US as well as other countries in Southeast Asia and decided it’s time to encompass Malaysia with the enticing charm of internet value added services.
The idea to launch the business originated from the founder’s unwavering philosophy to incorporate the fundamental infrastructure of Internet into the everyday life of the people, in short “assimilating Internet into everyday life”.
Currently scattered in six different states, Kedah, Penang, Perak, Terengganu, Pahang and Kuala Lumpur, Quinton Group prides itself with its detailed presence around the entire country. Its headquarter is still residing in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
As an aspiring provider of Internet value added services, Quinton Group has successfully launched a handful of pioneering apps including Quinpay (payment & reward), Quin Pavilion (shopping) and Quicksent (logistic). With mere 21 months of operating days in its belt, Quinton Group impressed many of its competitors and many alike entities of internet service provider via achieving an impressive result of 60,000 users nationwide and 4,500 merchants throughout the entire country.
Quinpay is an online payment gateway aimed to facilitate a cashless society via reward points, cash back, payment of utility bills, etc. Consequently, Quin Pavilion is the latest E-Commerce platform dedicated to empower our online shopping experience with a diverse range of product selections while Quicksent is a platform for online food delivery with a hint of unorthodox-ness embedded.
Among the vast selection of prestigious online food delivery platforms, a few peculiar aspects of Quicksent are somewhat trailblazing and differentiate it from the rest of the flock. Firstly, it focuses on colloquial hawker stalls residing in less urban-ish states such as Pahang and Terengganu. Unlike most food delivery platforms that solely prioritize their presence in big cities such as KL, Penang, Johor or Melaka, Quicksent aims to become the leading food delivery provider of scrumptious and to-the-ground hawker delicacies located in rural areas or somewhat pastoral states.
Secondly, it focuses on educating hawkers regarding the generalization of food delivery apps. Due to age gap and differing mentality, many conventional hawkers who are hidden gems in the culinary industry are less proficient in using these apps, hence resulting in the loss of many profiting market potential.
Quicksent took it upon itself to educate them, ensuring they are capable of taking orders via Quicksent platform, resulting in a brand new genre of food delivery service. Thirdly, in order to create an optimal and courteous working environment for Halal merchants and also Halal riders, Quicksent customized its food containers to divide them into Halal and non-Halal, ensuring all its Muslims merchants and clients regarding Quicksent’s professionalism and dedication in expanding the Halal market.
Fill in the gap
When inquired upon his mission during the early stages of Quinton Group’s launching in 2018, Mr Alvin Ooi intended for Quinton Group to be the number one Malaysia born provider/company of internet value added services in 5 years. With an unyielding passion for proliferating internet assisted services nationwide, he intends to leave Quinton’s mark in most, if not all areas resided by humans.
Given the fact that the ever-evolving internet service provider industry is intimately connected to all walks of industry, Alvin customized his services to satisfy the demands and requirements of both merchants and customers. To exemplify, most food delivery apps charge 30% for their share of profit, Quicksent charges only 2% as it recognizes the importance of cash flow and liquidity for hawkers and small size businesses.
Leveraging social media
As an advocate of internet’s wholesomeness, Quinton recognizes how pivotal social media is in installing a positive brand image and impressionable media presence. One of the most well-known Youtube channel among teenagers and youth with tons of captivating as well as meaningful content, Musang King Channel is the company’s strongest ally. Apart from that, DJ Rosman, a friendly face among Muslim-oriented media had expressed its approval and support of Quinton Group’s all-rounded services on numerous occasions.
With its sight set for 2020, Quinton Group is without a doubt a rising star in the region, curating new apps including Comepulse and CityGen. Comepulse is on its way to become the first Chinese Medicine booking app in Malaysia, with the blessing and assistance of local Chinese Medicine professionals.
Imagine an apps which allows you to obtain customized Chinese medicine related knowledge and advice with the function to secure appointments with Chinese Medicine healthcare professionals as well. As for CityGen, it will assume the role of fusing all Quinton platforms to integrate with city services with one ultimate goal, to provide lively lifestyle information such as checking the traffic status or any ongoing construction in your neighborhood.
