MIAMI, FL, Sept. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OM Holdings International Inc. (OTC PINK: OMHI), an owner and operator of OneMart super merchandising stores and Builders Depot in the British Virgin Islands, and the parent of its technology subsidiary Rydeum Caribbean, today announced it has retained exclusive rights to Rydeum’s DoGetGo mobile app for 20 years. The agreement will allow OMHI to have exclusive rights to generate revenue from any user that utilizes the app within 28 Caribbean Countries for the next 20 years. The DoGetGo mobile app will primarily target the $4.6B food delivery and taxi market in the Caribbean.
It is anticipated that the app will be rolled out in Jamaica before the end of the year. It is the first app adopted by the Jamaican Union of Travelers Association (JUTA), which boasts 12,000 drivers. JUTA represents an estimated 70% share of $120M (pre-covid-19) Jamaican taxicab industry in Jamaica as stated in a previously announced five-year contract with Rydeum.
“The DoGetGo mobile app is a game changer for businesses and customers seeking contactless transportation and delivery services throughout the Caribbean. Customers will be able to shop at our superstores such as OneMart and Builders Depot from their phones and have these purchases delivered,” said Mark Vanterpool, CEO of OM Holdings International, Inc. “Our DoGetGo app will give grocers and restaurants the ability to utilize it for food delivery purposes much like UberEats and Instacart.”
Vanterpool added, “What’s impressive about the Rydeum DoGetGo mobile platform is that it can be adapted for many business-to-consumer (B2C) and peer-to-peer (P2P) business needs. Flexibility to work within the unique requirements of different Caribbean countries will make DoGetGo a staple app in the region for years to come.”
