Meet S, owner of Jomsolek, a make up retailer in Malaysia. He buys make up items from local wholesale market and sells in Facebook and Whatsapp.

He started getting daily 100+ people making queries in his Facebook page comments, messenger inbox and Whatsapp. Orders started to come from everywhere. His sales grew to daily 15-20 orders. He was swamped in responding to hundreds of queries, capturing orders, buying the stocks, packing orders, submitting the orders in delivery company website, following up to collect payment and returned product and so on.

It was so overwhelming, he used to start his day at 8am and even after returning home after 8pm, he had to keep working to prepare the list of items to order, respond to customer queries and the never ending task list goes on.

He saw EZAssist – a Query and Order Management Solution that supports multiple Cash On Delivery partners and settles the COD collection in 3 business days and COD Fees starts from as low as 2 RM per orders.

But soon he discovered, EZAssist makes him efficient and frees up his time dramatically; he now starts at 9am and finishes all of his packing and shipment by 3pm everyday with a daily order volume of 60+.
