DingGo is an innovative mobile application that allows merchants to proactively reach out and notify nearby users of great deals on food, entertainment and retail. In the recent soft launch and pilot trial stage, the enterprise has been running a socially green initiative with support of the SMU community. It alerts SMU students, staff and faculty on remaining but still fresh buffet spreads and beverages on campus, before the good food expires and gets cleared away. To date, DingGo is proud that more than 120kg of food wastage has been avoided within SMU through this initiative, with the excellent support of SMU students, staff, and faculty. DingGo aims to reach out to even more of SMU’s overall population to help on this social cause.
