This also marks an important milestone in UEM Sunrise’s digital transformation journey in line with the Company’s aim to be the digital developer of choice in the country.
The mobile app enables UEM Sunrise’s hUb Prop registered users to access information and further improve their customer journey from pre-searching stage until they move into the property. This app makes it easier for hUb Prop users to make buying decisions at their convenience with a swipe of the finger. This app also provides information on UEM Sunrise latest properties, promotions, upcoming events and project launches. To date, more than 5,600 users have downloaded hUb Prop with many more to come.
To add another feather to the cap of UEM Sunrise, the Company will be unveiling a new phase of its digital journey in October, expanding its digital offerings for the convenience of its treasured customers as well as the public.
