Telecom operator Banglalink has officially launched a digital services marketplace to connect its customers with local developers.
Along with providing the customers with convenient purchase facilities, AppLink will open up earning opportunities for the developers.
State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak was present at the launching ceremony of AppLink Sunday.
Also present at the ceremony were Sami Ahmed, managing director of Startup Bangladesh; Erik Aas, chief executive officer, and Upanga Dutta, chief commercial Officer, of Banglalink.
Local developers can visit the AppLink website to register and get all the necessary tools and application programming interfaces (APIs) such as SMS, USSD, and billing connectivity on the platform to publish and monetise their digital services of different categories such as health, education, sports, agriculture, public service, entertainment, and business.
Banglalink customers will be able to buy their desired services using Banglalink's mobile airtime balance at https://applink.com.bd/.
Upanga said, "We have launched AppLink with a two-fold objective. Firstly, this new digital ecosystem is empowering local developers with a platform to showcase their talents with the opportunity to earn."
"Secondly, it enables our customers to easily purchase their desired services and apps with complete ease."
