Heya, it’s David again, Co-founder of JaGaApp. Hope you enjoyed our previous newsletter sharing on the interesting story of our G logo that has never been told.
For our first time readers of JaGaCorner, if you are wondering why you are reading this is because we want to stay connected with YOU! And also for everyone to stay connected with each other in the JaGaApp neighbourhoods. We hope through JaGaCorner, you may find relevant and share-worthy content and along the way you’ll get to know us better as this little corner grows. In this week’s corner, I will be sharing with you another unspoken secret of how and why we named ourselves JaGaApp.
But before we dive in to the topic of the day, let me introduce to you our other equally hot , attractive and smart JaGa products that you might or might not have heard of but little did you know, you are probably using it already!

In our previous newsletter, we talked about the brief history of our G logo. We came out with the G logo back in 2015 and we launched our initial product as Graaab. We want to empower everyone to be able to Graaab the better life. Whether it’s for a better security, better communication, or the convenience of buying / grabbing everything you need from the comfort of your house.
A couple of months after our product launch, I received a text message from a close friend. “Did you know MyTeksi just rebranded as Grab? That’s so close to your brand name!”
I went online and checked, and it was indeed true 😧. Oh well, i thought for a small startup like us and with our corporate brand Graaab registered, we can still operate as it is and it would be a waste of resources if we jump straight into the whole rebranding exercise. So we operated under the brand name Graaab for a short period of time (for those that have been with us since 2015/2016, you will remember this 😘) and we were growing ok back then.
Fast forward months later, we got invited to BFM for an interview as we were undergoing our listing exercise for the LEAP Market by Bursa Malaysia. We realised that hey, we have a problem. Radio listeners will not be able to distinguish the 2 brands with ease! So we brainstormed over a period of time, and sadly we couldn’t come to an agreement.
Subsequently, I reached out to my very creative friend, Sathi Anand for his advice. I remembered him saying this:
“Your brand is all about taking care of the community. As a proud Malaysian startup, your name should represent our local community. You work on product that helps neighbourhood to be better, to be safer; to be more convenient and help enhancing communication, your product essentially empower everyone to protect and take care of their homes. You work with the security guards closely as well, so, why don’t you call yourself JaGaApp?“
We absolutely love it! We went along with the name and never look back since. JaGaApp is now used by over 450 neighbourhoods and this is just the beginning. And that’s the end of the short story about JaGaApp and yes, I still owe my friend a cup of coffee ☕️ for his great advice 😎
“As a mother, I realised that I CANNOT do everything on my own. This is why I’ve resorted to automating or outsourcing it to simplify my life and to increase the time I spend with your family. For chores like curtain and mattress cleaning, deep cleaning the house, air con servicing, I relied on @heyjaga_official website.”

“I was very satisfied with the service given and amazed at how professional they are. Overall the cleaning service was great and it was done professionally. Alvin from mclean even offered some advices/tips on how to take care of the mattress. Thumbs up!”
