HotApp has customized a secure “app” for iGalen’s communication and management system which will allow instant messaging, voice-calls, social media and personal brand-building for network members. The app will also enable iGalen’s distributors and team leaders to monitor sales revenue of their downline members over mobile devices – all fully integrated with iGalen’s existing IT infrastructure.
Under the terms of the agreement, iGalen, a U.S.-based network marketing company and 53% owned subsidiary of Singapore Exchange-listed Singapore eDevelopment Limited (“SeD”), will share 3% of its entire annual global revenue with HotApp for the financial year ending 31 December 2017 (“FY2017”). Thereafter, the revenue sharing model will be reviewed based on the number of app users. In turn, HotApp will be responsible for maintaining and upgrading the app platform, as well as providing the required cloud infrastructure.
HotApp will absorb the cost of development of the app, and will not charge individual members for use of the app’s standard functions.
Mr. Chan Heng Fai, Group Chief Executive Officer of SeD, said: “This agreement is a major milestone for HotApp and underscores its attractiveness as a unique and customizable platform for enterprises. HotApp is poised to disrupt the network marketing industry and we look forward to more collaborations.”
HotApp, a subsidiary of SeD, has to-date secured two other contracts to develop a mobile app and backend platform for a real estate agency business in China and a hospitality e-commerce business in Hong Kong and Japan.
The above three contracts were secured following the realignment of HotApp’s strategy since the start of FY2016 to focus on business-to-business services, built around enterprise communications and workflow, instead of business-to-consumer services previously. Under this strategy, its product lines target the following industries: (i) network and direct marketing; (ii) enterprise Voice-over-IP; (iii) enterprise messaging; (iv) real estate; (v) social media; (vi) e-commerce; (vii) investor relations; (viii) healthcare and wellness; and (ix) hospitality, combining HotApp applications with hotel guest room management. This strategic shift is intended to create commercial value with a sharper focus.
