Puma Energy Malawi Limited has launched a mobile application called ePuma which will allow its retail customers to transact using their mobile phone, tablet or computer.
The application will allow customers to create fuel orders, view order status and view invoices and credit notes among other functions.
Speaking during the official launch of the application, Puma Energy Malawi Managing Director, Davies Lanjesi, said the innovation will provide an interface between the company and its customers.
“The whole end game is for you the end users who go to Puma sites to make sure that every time you come to our retail sites anywhere in Malawi you should find our products so we are talking about improved efficiency,” Lanjesi said.
He added that they expect the technology to boost the company’s revenue which will grow the company and enhance an expansion drive in the next five years.
Minister of Energy, Newton Kambala, expressed satisfaction with the innovation saying that it has come at the right time as the world battles physical contacts due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Considering that currently we need to create distances between ourselves because of Covid-19, I feel it adds value to how business is being done,” Kambala said.
In the past Puma retail customers used to make calls or send texts to make orders or check balance in their accounts.
