Doshii expands into Asia with signing of Raptor, first major POS in ASEAN market
Doshii API, which connects Apps with POS (Point of Sale), is pleased to announce an integration with Raptor POS, which heralds an expansion into the lucrative Asian market. Doshii, which connects Apps with POS in real-time, was backed by Reinventure in Seed funding in January 2017. It has matured its technology and offerings to the market over the last 12 months.
Leslie Tan, Raptor Founder and Managing Director, says his company is pleased to be the first POS vendor across the ASEAN market to sign a partnership with Doshii. “Doshii solves the enormous problem of connecting the high number of Apps in our rapidly changing market to our more than 4,500 venues,” he says.
“This allows us to focus on developing our POS further and collaborate with our partner networks to provide better value to our customers – the venues.”
Raptor has venues across Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei and Australia
Doshii CEO and Founder, Sean O’Meara says “We are glad to be partnered with Raptor as the first POS across the ASEAN countries. This provides further advantage to Apps to connect via Doshii as the dominant platform for ordering and delivery, payments, reservations, loyalty and real-time data & analytics.”
Doshii, which has been developing its technology out of Melbourne for over three years has added a number of local POS companies to the mix. “It’s been a long journey thus far – the technology build has been enormous and we recently released the Doshii Dashboard to allow Apps to auto-provision venues and allows them to activate Apps that the venue wants to connect with their POS” O’Meara explains.
With The move into the Asian market has prompted the Doshii team to expand in order to provide development and support services to major Apps and assist with connecting to POS via the Doshii platform. “At scale, Doshii facilitates a marketplace to connect any Doshii certified App to any certified POS; we are completely POS agnostic and we provide a bigger value for Apps to connect via Doshii”, Doshii GM, Greg Williams, adds.
Doshii says the drive for Asian expansion is due to the increase in bespoke and aggregator-based ordering and payment Apps driving demand in the region. These all face the same hurdle: a common API to connect to POS. Doshii solves this problem.
