Get to know the Team
At Merchant Experience (Mex) our goal is to make merchants happy, and help them thrive in their business. We support all merchants, between tiny merchants (like a warung or hawker) and big, international franchises. Merchants have a lot of different businesses: restaurants, supermarkets, fashion, online stores, people who sell on social media, and many more. We level the playing field between tiny merchants and big merchants by giving them the same tools to grow their business, to attract customers, to become more efficient and be able to concentrate on what they do best inside one GrabMerchant Super App and Portal. If you go to a restaurant, chances are high you have seen some of the products of our team already.
We have millions of very different merchant end-users who earn money in Southeast Asia that use our tools: cashiers, store owners, managers, merchant back office for marketing, and reporting. Stability, quality and innovation to engage more customers are the most important qualities for them running their business. Our tools collect and analyze billions of transactions every month that lead to merchant insights on how they can improve their business.
