BookDoc Activ rewards active users with discounts and privileges
SELANGOR, MALAYSIA – March 3rd 2017, BookDoc first lauched its latest feature, BookDoc Activ back in November 2016 with Activ Reward Partners, KFIT, La Juiceria and Guardian. Today, BookDoc is excited to reveal its new additional Activ Reward Partners, Secret Recipe, Focus Point, and Happy Fresh who came on-board. It strives to attain more reward partners and will be revealed in stages, all with the health and well being of the public in mind!
BookDoc Activ rewards users for maintaining high level of activity. The new feature offers users discounts, from major retailers and service providers every month, for achieving average-dailystep thresholds, tiered according to Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The BookDoc Activ feature is embedded in the “BookDoc” App which is downloadable for free on Apple App Store (for iOS) and Google Play Store (for Android), and syncs seamlessly with tracking Apps – Apple Health and S Health; and wearables – Fitbit and Jawbone.
“We are confident that this initiative from BookDoc will help users kick-start, improve on one’s wellbeing in the long-term and encourage the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. The appealing rewarding system in the application is a big motivational push that acts as an incentive for people to start living a healthier. Together with Secret Recipe as one of the key reward partners, we too hope that more people will be able to practice an active way of life and benefit from BookDoc Activ.” said by Evelyn Lee, Senior Marketing Manager of Secret Recipe.
The new feature is a natural complement to BookDoc’s existing search and book function for healthcare professionals, enabling BookDoc to become an integrated platform, which caters to various aspects of health for its users. BookDoc believes that this initiative will help users kickstart healthy lifestyle changes and improve long-term wellness, in particular those who have not acquired these habits since youth. Rewards provide a much-needed external incentive for habits like exercise, which may seem unappealing or difficult to develop on their own. This is an innovative carrot approach to being active.
“We have come to a decision of working closely with BookDoc as they are not only an ordinary online platform, in fact they are operating across the healthcare continuum connecting patients to healthcare professionals while incentivising everyone to stay active and healthy. With that, we have taken part in rewarding users who have been maintaining their high level of healthy lifestyle.” Added Dato Liaw, CEO of Focus Point.
Secret Recipe, Focus Point, and Happy Fresh have stepped up to offer exclusive discounts to reward BookDoc Activ users for adopting healthy habits and help create a fitness social movement. .

“We strongly believe that by enabling consumers to get their groceries with a few taps and swipes on their smartphones, we can help them take more control of what they eat and make better food choices. Diet goes hand-in-hand with exercise and that’s why we are extremely excited to be part of this healthy lifestyle movement that BookDoc is kick-starting with it’s new Activ feature.” added by Happy Fresh Managing Director Opal Wu.
Activ represents BookDoc and its partners’ commitment to the wellness of the general public, in addition to timely access to healthcare professionals for consultation and treatment. Exercise is an integral part of preventive care, reducing the short and long-term risks of developing diseases. Through this new feature, BookDoc hopes to help the nation stay healthy and reduce healthcare costs while saving money with rewards in the process.
“Addressing the public’s health problems is at the core of BookDoc’s mission,” said BookDoc founder Dato’ Chevy Beh. “Obesity rates in Malaysia have been increasing dangerously in recent years, and steps must be taken to address the attitudes of the public on health. BookDoc Activ does so through positive reinforcement, and with a low cost of entry. We hope to begin a social fitness movement, bringing in more partners and users, and expand and innovate to encourage even more types of healthy behaviour.”
