At JDX Presto Concept Store, every transaction is cashless and seamless. Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of PUC Berhad, CHEONG Chia Chou said, “We proudly launched Presto two years ago, and along the way, our teams have worked relentlessly to gradually enrich Presto with various digital offerings. Today truly marks a great milestone on our journey, with the grand opening of our first ever O2O store. We are excited to extend to Malaysians the opportunity to first explore JDX innovations via PrestoMall and then complete the shopping journey by visiting JDX Presto Concept Store or vice versa, as we believe that the integrated experience is important for consumers to touch and feel the actual products, providing a sense of certainty to consumers with lesser or no experience in online purchase.”  Cheong added, “The symbol for Presto is a rabbit. It was chosen as the central character due to its fun-loving personality, its alertness, its ability to navigate challenges effortlessly, and the way it sprints and leaps at lightning speed, reflecting the brand’s propensity for growth. With the launch of our first O2O store, shoppers are welcome to meet and take a photo with Presto, doubling the joy of shopping with fun and interactive elements. Presto-themed merchandise is also available in the store for Presto lovers.”  Founder of Smuzcity, Kent Lee Kian Yan shared, “We are proud to leverage JDX technology to bring increased cashless convenience to shoppers in Malaysia through homegrown super app Presto.” “Ever picture yourself shopping in shopping mall without your wallet?

Together with PUC, we are committed to add a touch of innovation to the retail scene, redefining and shaping a unique O2O shopping experience for Malaysians,” Lee added. Official venue partner, Group Executive Director of Quill Group of Companies, Dato’ Ar. Michael Ong said, “Our retail mall offers utmost support to the adoption of digital payment that is a win-win for both shoppers and sellers. Back in May, Presto held their first Cashless Raya Bazaar at Quill City Mall KL to encourage and educate consumers to go cashless while shopping for their Raya needs, which saw a success. We are more than delighted to be part of their adventure in the retail scene.”Senior Vice President of Quill City Mall KL, Justin Liew added, “As Quill City Mall KL is repositioning itself towards the ‘phygital’ era, JDX Presto Concept Store is very much aligned with the direction we are moving forward. That focuses on consumer-centric technology infrastructure that facilitates the interactions between the consumers and brands.
