Introduce your business and tell us your story: What kind of business do you run?
We are running an E-commerce Florist Shop in Malaysia. One of our proudest creation is to be the first in the industry to introduce Malaysia’s First Video Bouquet to bring an interactive experience to our customers. How it works is our bouquets come together with a video, retrievable by scanning the QR code generated by us. Swiftly, we’ve reached 100 thousand devotees and we are still growing rapidly. This motivates us to continue to evolve and be innovative to stay fast growing. Throughout the years, we have actively collaborated with over 60 brands to bring great values to our customers. As of now, 50gram holds the highest number of collaboration nationwide within the florist industry.
Where are you headed as a business?
We are heading towards overseas expansion, aiming to bring this great idea to more countries. In 2019, we will be heading towards Indonesia and Singapore to begin our expansion plan. In the meantime, we will be working our best to evolve our business model beyond the levels of what the national florist industries have been adapting!
What convinced you to try our products/ service?

Most importantly, there is a free trial, which comes with a money-back guarantee. I find it’s fitting for customers who wish to try out before deciding if they find Exabytes is suitable for them.
How have you benefited from using our product/service?
50Gram is using Exabytes Premium Hosting together with .MY domain to run this business. With that, we have gotten most out of their speedy response in live customer service. When we are running an online business, there are still some certain areas which we are yet an expert. For instance, we are not familiar with servers, hosting and certain technical parts and/or terms. This is where a responsive customer service system in Exabytes brings the value to us while our website is running live. We would not want to encounter any trouble at any time of the day.
