Vendors and their customers in the Caribbean Islands are about to get more connected through DoGetGo, an exciting app that will make the exchange of essentials in the region faster and more convenient.

The app will be supported by OM Holdings International Inc.’s (OTC: OMHI) patent-pending technology, which will onboard multiple types of providers on a single platform. OMHI will leverage its brick-and-mortar retail stores to serve as hubs while allowing businesses, such as taxi companies, grocery stores, restaurants, doctors, and babysitters, to onboard for free and offer their own products and services on demand. In return, OMHI will earn a small commission from each successful transaction. By bringing together a large array of vendors, OMHI ultimately envisions using its technology to become the go-to app for goods and services in the Caribbean, which overwhelmingly does not have access to Amazon Prime or on-demand services.

What is DoGetGo?

At the center of OMHI’s technology will be the app DoGetGo, which will combine three facets of the on-demand experience into one convenient location. 

Do: Users will be able to request that someone does something for them. The job could be as simple as picking up dry cleaning or as complex as replacing a roof. The involved parties will be able to negotiate the price with each other and agree on the terms.

Get: Users will be able to request that a person gets them something. For example, if a person is ill and needs food, they can request that someone go to the pharmacy and pick up their medication for them. All prices will be agreed upon by the parties.

Go: Users will be able to request transportation when they need to go somewhere. Taxis, private cars, boats — transportation providers of any type will be able to onboard and offer their services at prices determined by them.

Anticipated success

DoGetGo is expected to become popular in the Caribbean because of the success of Indonesia’s Gojek, whose technology model is currently valued at $1.3 billion and is similar to OMHI’s platform. Gojek has been widely adopted in the Asian market, whose consumer proclivities are similar to those of the Caribbean market. Due to this, OMHI hopes that DoGetGo will rapidly become the app many people in the region used for the exchange of goods and services.

OMHI believes DoGetGo has strong potential in the United States market as well. With a successful rollout and adoption in the Caribbean, regular tourism from the U.S., and an absence of a Gojek app in the U.S. market, OMHI believes that it is possible that DoGetGo may one day be ubiquitous in the U.S.

The companies behind the technology

The innovative technology created by OMHI is the result of the fusion between Rydeum, an on-demand technology platform founded by Mark Hannah in 2019, and OneMart, founded by Mark Vanterpool, now the British Virgin Islands’ second-largest grocery.

OneMart has supplied the BVI with groceries, home goods, electronics, furniture, and some building supplies for 35 years. It also sells wholesale products to restaurants and hospitality venues and caters to retail customers. OneMart was acquired by OMHI in the third quarter of 2020, and Vanterpool and Hannah will use the store’s locations as distribution centers for DoGetGo orders.

As OMHI’s technology subsidiary, Rydeum Caribbean Inc. will power DoGetGo and is also working to onboard businesses. In 2021, Rydeum partnered with Jamaica’s largest taxicab union, which has 12,000 drivers. This segment will provide rideshare, an online grocery shopping-like platform that will uniquely satisfy the needs of local on-demand economies in the Caribbean.

The effect for people in the Caribbean

OMHI’s DoGetGo will improve the flow of goods and services in the Caribbean. Delivery times will be shortened, people will have more job opportunities, and the islands will become more interconnected. As OMHI prepares to bring its app to the public, this is very good news indeed for the nearly 44 million people who live there.
