Carmudi partners with internet platform SafeZone to give free internet access to users in finding best deals and affordable vehicles even without an active data connection. SafeZone allows users to browse specified sites and apps completely free of data charges. This scheme is powered by Voyager Innovations, PLDT’s digital arm.
As the premier vehicle marketplace in the Philippines, Carmudi offers listings of over 25,000 vehicles on its website and mobile app, which can be searched using different parameters such as make, model, price, and condition to suit every vehicle hunter.
Carmudi is backed by Rocket Internet, and by partnering with SafeZone, visitors of the Carmudi website and mobile app can now search for vehicles without worrying about data charges.
SafeZone aims to connect businesses to consumers by offering free internet access to partner mobile sites and apps. SafeZone was launched last February, 2015, and is now the number one community site in the Philippines according to Effective Measure, with more than 6 million monthly page views. SafeZone also has a base of more than 2 million registered users.
“With our growing presence in the Philippines, we want to offer more to our users with our latest partnership with SafeZone. Users of Carmudi no longer have to worry about having load or an active data subscription to search for a car,” said Carmudi Philippines Managing Director, Subir Lohani.
“SafeZone allows consumers to access partner mobile sites and apps for free, making internet browsing more enjoyable. With our latest partnership with Carmudi, Filipinos can now search for a brand new or used car worry-free.” said Benjie Fernandez, the Chief Operating Officer of Voyager Innovations.
