There is an unidentified demand when it comes to managing our vehicle needs. Common problems that we often find ourselves in includes,
Forgetting to renew our road tax and insurance
Missing the date to service our vehicle
Forgetting where we park our car
Prompt roadside assistance
Immediate SOS button for when emergency strikes
Parking payment hassle
Living in a digital age, we opt to download multiple apps to service our vehicle needs which results in the excess use of space in our phone and this defeats the purpose of the app serving as a convenience.
Govicle has designed an application that will provide a centralized solution in one application to cater to all your vehicle needs and more. This includes:
All in one experience in one app – it shortens the way to the desired action (convenience)
A variety of services under one umbrella
Allows for a uniform and individual user experience whilst saving phone memory
Multiple revenue streams
Incredible volumes of vehicle data
Govicle application's value lies in the simple and comfortable connection of all our daily vehicle activities in one application. Having conquered the parking industry as one of the pioneer of digital parking payments, Govicle will expand and include a large suite of services including Smart Parking, Smart Servicing, Smart Agent, Smart Security and Smart Ticketing, Govicle envisions to be the chosen super-app that provides a myriad of robust services under one single roof.
JomParking® is a user-friendly smart parking app that provides a hassle-free parking experience that is fast, cashless, and safe. With the highest rating in AppStore and PlayStore, the app allows users to go cashless with a myriad of payment options. Available for both on-street and off-street parking areas nationwide, the app is fully integrated and allows users to receive real-time notification on their parking status to avoid parking summons.
JomForce is a product and service that caters to enforcers. The system enables enforcers to validate parking transactions via real-time reports through a custom build device and software that is more effective as enforcers are able to monitor civilians' parking statuses systematically.
JomValet is a mobile app for valet operators to manage their parking services more competently. With configurable tariff and fast deployment, the app provides an efficient way to track all issued tickets with real-time reports. This results in a smooth and more feasible operation as parking operators can prevent revenue leakage and save up to 30% of their operating costs.
JomAgent is a digitalised portable e-ticketing system that provides an eco-friendly system. With the implementation of JomAgent's system, local councils are able to reduce their CAPEX & OPEX by 20%. This promising system is an efficient alternative in support of green technology.
Govicle’s application design is laser focused on providing a smooth and friendly user experience. It incorporates all 5 pillars of services in a single application. Users will be able to perform multiple activities and transactions all in one application.

MARii Mobility World: What's Next for Smart Parking Payment?
Plug in with MARii (Malaysia Automotive Robotics and IoT Institute) and Govicle for an insightful discussion on what's next for Smart Parking Payment at the following link:
Industry players expect 2021 to be bumper year for some sectors
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 22 -- While 2020 is without doubt, a year of surprises with challenges and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, industry players are expecting a bumper year for certain industries in 2021.
Uni Enrol Malaysia chief executive officer (CEO) Rickson Khaw said some industries are expected to do much better next year as they put in a lot of effort to provide better services to their customers.
"For example, businesses with products or services that are accessible online will be at an all-time high next year. They will improve what is lacking and deliver better services," he said during a Cyberview Tech-Talk webinar, ‘Business Flashback of 2020 and Insights towards 2021’, here today.
Khaw expects the first six months of 2021 to be somewhat similar to what is currently happening and anticipates a recovery in the second half of up to 70 per cent of pre COVID-19 level.
Meanwhile, Govicle (formerly known as JomParkir) CEO Muhamad Nasir said the extra effort will pay off, and cashless solution or online solution will be one of the big things to happen next year because of the pandemic.
He said the positive trend is expected to continue next year, particularly for cashless solution, remote related services as well as services that are related to technology.
Grab Malaysia public affairs and policy director Ebi Azly Abdullah said most of the COVID-19 effect on digital transformation was the acceleration of the progress of moving digital.
"The pandemic has taught us that businesses that are not digitalised are not going to survive, and so we can no longer place digitalisation as an option.
"On the gig economy model, currently it is expected to stay, as it has been an integral part of the new economy or new normal. The problem is that no one truly understands or has defined it properly whether the government or industry players," he said.
He said Grab Malaysia would continue to work with the authorities to ensure that gig work is fair, inclusive and sustainable for all.
"In order to do all these, partnerships will be the key to us, we want to be an enabler. People have already said that Grab is dominant or monopoly because of the earlier businesses or merges, but in reality as we grow, we want to be an enabler and assist the country and the market,” he said.

After 500k Users & A Global Expansion, Here’s What M’sian Startup JomParking Will Do Next
When your user base just keeps growing, I’m pretty sure you can confidently take it as a sign that what you’re offering is something much needed.
Since its launch in 2015, JomParking has had over 500k user downloads, an ever-increasing number from their achievement of 1,790 users in the first year.
Nasir, CEO and founder of JomParking reflected on this growth, telling Vulcan Post, “There’s a definite change in users going digital. We’ve seen a rapid and major increment of users annually.”
People are also more likely to turn to technology to solve problems nowadays, paying for parking included.
“In addition, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, our numbers are increasing as people are more inclined to opt for contactless payment options to make their parking experience stress-free,” he said.
Steadfastly Parked In The Hearts Of Its Users
Even in its early years, it felt as though JomParking had thought of everything. They gave users as much info as possible: the area, zone name, its parking rates, and operating hours.
If your mum couldn’t find a parking machine and didn’t have a phone, or wasn’t savvy enough to use the app? They already had an “add another vehicle” feature that let you pay for her, anytime, anywhere.
Now, they’ve added the option for users to get notified if they receive parking summons, although this has only been rolled out in Tanah Merah District Council, Kelantan, for now. They’re in the process of implementing it in other areas too.
Some other features they’ve added to the app include:
Transaction history, for users who wish to claim their parking payments,
Tokens that don’t expire (RM1 = 100 tokens, the app’s currency to pay for parking),
Token sharing, so users have more options for managing tokens.
Recently, DBKL’s announcement of working with multiple cashless parking payment apps caused a bit of an uproar when JomParking wasn’t initially revealed as one of them.
Users found it odd, as they were already accustomed to using JomParking in DBKL areas since 2015, back when it was the only cashless payment in the area.
This was later resolved, and JomParking was back to being active in DBKL areas, much to the relief of their users.
Moving Into Corporate Partnerships
Being a startup, JomParking realised the importance of visibility early on. So they joined MaGIC’s first cohort of their Global Accelerator Programme (GAP) and were able to showcase their solutions to industry experts and potential investors.
Today, they’re able to stay connected to the community through exhibitions, events, and talks, all of which have opened doors of opportunities for the team.
They’ve even been able to showcase their products and services abroad at the InnoVEX exhibition in Taipei, Taiwan, for example.
JomParking has ventured into corporate partnerships as well, and one of their most recent is with a VC from South Korea, TheVentures.
“Our strategic partnership with TheVentures will enable us to enhance our systems and technology in our efforts to lead the digitalisation of the parking industry in Southeast Asia,” Nasir said.
“This is in line with our aim to build the first vehicle data exchange in Southeast Asia, whilst spearheading the parking industry’s transition into adopting the Smart City concept.”
To make this a reality, they’re working closely with other agencies such as MaGIC, MARii, MDEC, SITEC, Cradle and Cyberview.
Driving Growth Locally & Globally
“Ultimately, the aim is to cover the whole of Malaysia as the potential of digitalising parking is vast and nationwide,” Nasir answered, when Vulcan Post asked about some of the next areas JomParking wanted to move into.
Currently, JomParking has over 20 sites nationwide, and 2 sites globally in Saudi Arabia and Sri Lanka.
Even during the CMCO, they were able to launch 2 new local sites, one of which was the aforementioned Tanah Merah, Kelantan, and Taman Mutiara Raya, Cheras.
In the pipeline, they’ve got 17 new site launches lined up—10 in the domestic front, and 7 abroad.
With every site launch, they’d carry out 2-week long, on-ground marketing activities to get the news out.
On top of that, they also carry out various online campaigns, and have worked with notable brands such as Grab, Huawei, AirAsia, and iflix.
It’s true that there are other players in the cashless parking payment scene, but Nasir doesn’t see the competition as something to be too worried about.
Competition to him is just a means to keep pushing for innovation, and every business has its own advantages and disadvantages.
He even added rather diplomatically, “JomParking is happy to not only share the trick of the trade with other states that are interested to digitalise their parking payment system, but also to co-exist with other applications.”
