Piolo Pascual moves it with Mober

By Jan Milo Severo, Contributor

Son, father, grandfather, matinee idol, actor, producer, recording artist, endorser, sports enthusiast, spiritual person... Is there anything Piolo Pascual can’t do?

“I’ve been very busy lately with my professional and personal life. I’m working on a new soap and, as a producer, I have two movies in the pipeline,” said Piolo, whose career spans across multiple media platforms.
With this kind of active lifestyle, the actor admits that organizing his time is challenging. But with the help of technology, Piolo says it becomes easier to sort them out. “Anything I need is on my phone — from ordering food, doing work and keeping videos. I live off of my phone. It helps you do your stuff wherever you are and at any time of the day.”
Adding to the long list of brand endorsements is Mober, an app that provides an instant and on-demand platform for same-day delivery solutions at affordable prices. With reliable pick-up and delivery options, the company seeks to offer tailored services to address its clients’ specific needs.
Mober can be used for a variety of purposes. These include making deliveries for small to medium enterprises, delivering goods to consumers, and providing start-up businesses with safe and cost-effective logistical services.
Non-business clients can use the app for lipat-bahay or transport of home furniture and appliances, for making bulk shipments and even as pet shuttle transport.
“Mober offers instant booking for deliveries and within the same day. No need to wait for days. Even in simple ways like that, I am able to show respect for other people’s time.”
The actor adds that in the past, he used to struggle whenever moving places. “It’s just really hard to move things around because of the hassle of traffic,” Piolo recounts. In the past 20 years, he said he has moved places at least six times already.
According to him, the on-demand delivery app is proof of how technology can make life simpler for consumers. “Moving is taxing. Now, it’s less hard and lets me save time.”
The availability of smartphones challenged many tech startups to offer ways of saving and respecting people’s time. Indeed, using the right apps can make managing time easier.
After its introduction two years ago, the on-demand delivery services app Mober was officially launched on November 20, 2017 by Filipino tech startup Mober Technology.
Mober Technology currently services clients across Metro Manila, including big brands like SM Appliances and Adidas. Two hundred previously underutilized vans are now doing the deliveries in the Metro and up to Bulacan and Laguna.
Eric Ortiz, the company’s chief operating officer, believes that using Mober will be beneficial to any business.
“Our services can help them cut expenses on manpower and trucking,” he said.
According to him, Mober provides better convenience and even better services. “Investing on new delivery trucks costs a lot, adds to the traffic and doesn’t guarantee efficiency,” the COO adds.
Mober is currently available for download on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, and people can also book through their website and hotline number. This lets the company make delivery convenience more accessible to Filipinos.
Aside from affordable and transparent pricing, clients also get to track their shipment via GPS by showing the driver’s spot in real time. They may contact the van drivers via phone or SMS for better coordination.
