KUALA LUMPUR, 19 July 2021 – Touch ‘n Go Group and MR. D.I.Y. Group (M) Berhad today announced that they have entered into several strategic collaboration initiatives to enhance customer experience across multiple on-line and offline channels. Aside from bringing greater benefits and convenience to their sets of customers and users, these initiatives are ultimately aimed at ensuring a more relevant approach to marketing through personalisation of offers on the back of data and analytics capabilities.

Today, shoppers can already top up their Touch ‘n Go cards at all MRD.I.Y stores as well as use their Touch ‘n Go eWallet to make payments for purchases at these stores and MR D.I.Y’s e-commerce website www.mrdiy.com.my.

This strategic collaboration takes the work between the companies further and will see MR D.I.Y being a prominent feature in the Touch‘n Go eWallet, powered by the eWallet’s Mini Programme platform. This will allow the 16 million Touch ‘n Go eWallet users to seamlessly browse MR D.I.Y’s catalogue, order and pay for the items they want, and have the purchases delivered, or ready for pick-up at their store of choice. This is slated for a public launch in the third quarter of 2021.
