DIBIZ app helps oil palm players to run biz digitally


SEREMBAN: Software developer DIBIZ Malaysia Sdn Bhd has introduced DIBIZ, a mobile applicatio­n (app) that allows oil palm planters and traders to run their business in a more transparen­t and efficient manner.

Chief executive officer UR Unnithan said the app offers various features to facilitate planters and traders in their daily dealings without any cost, and can be downloaded for free via the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

He said among other things, the app allows planters to obtain informatio­n on the grading of fresh fruit bunches (FFB) from traders or factories in real time.

“The app is available in five languages, namely Malay, English, Mandarin, Tamil and Indonesian.

“Smallholde­rs can also get the latest FFB price from the Malaysian Palm Oil Board through the app,” he told Bernama.

By using the app, they can also keep track of records such as harvest informatio­n, delivery and weighbridg­e notes, as well as FFB grading digitally, which can be accessed at any time.

Aside from helping to prevent FFB theft, the app is also expected to help in attracting the younger generation to participat­e in oil palm cultivatio­n.

“DIBIZ can also help traders in addressing issues such as scheduling, harvesting, fertilisin­g and transporti­ng, in addition to allowing them to monitor the FFB quality,” he said.

Moving forward, Unnithan said the app will also offer additional features, including a payment system so that traders will be able to pay smallholde­rs by using the app. — Bernama
