Linking Daily Life with Link Shopping Mall App 與領展會員 App 連結日常生活



As the largest shopping mall network in Hong Kong, Link REIT has an extensive presence across various districts in the city. Link REIT has continuously improved the malls’ facilities and services to strengthen its connections with the community. Recently, Link REIT has launched a new mobile shopping mall application called the “Link Up App”, aiming to be a one-stop lifestyle informational platform.

Meanwhile, to enhance customers’ shopping experience and strengthen the social network, Link REIT has upgraded its existing functions and combined SIX major experiences in the Link Up App. These include Real-time Parking Information, Place-making Events, Exclusive merchant discounts, Shopping Rewards for Members, Green Living Tips, and Team Missions.

By integrating a series of community news and physical games, customers can easily access the mall information, and Link REIT can establish a channel to engage with customers interactively. For instance, sharing its Place-making Events in “Hubs”, uploading Green Living Tips in “Interest Club”, and participating in shopping reward games as a team or individual through “Mission”. This approach encourages loyal members to actively participate in community activities and enjoy a fulfilling livelihood.

Ensuring Customer Data Security: As the Link Up App is a key project for Link REIT, the company aims to collect customer data to understand their purchasing habits and provide more comprehensive services. As the user base gradually expands, concerns about data volume and data security arise. Link REIT has implemented strict all-rounded network security restrictions and established a structurally complete database in the backend while implementing robust data security measures. This ensures the security of customer data whileenabling comprehensive analysis of user information to support the evolving needs of the company.

Secure and Smooth Real-time Information: Link REIT is concerned about the manual workload involved in providing real-time information to customers. The goal is to create a seamless integration with their existing systems that allows for obtaining the latest information with a smooth operation in line with Link REIT’s internal IT security requirements. Our system integration capabilities can achieve various functions, such as real-time availability of parking spaces in the parking system or providing the latest merchant information and store directories through the App in the property management system.

Scalability for Future Development: Link REIT also wishes for the mobile application to be scalable, allowing flexibility to adapt to future development, expansion, and functionality of the group’s shopping malls.

By showing the user’s nearby or frequently visited housing estates, malls, street markets, and parking lots with promotions and event information.

User-Friendly System: Diversified memberships and thousands of merchants are the major participants in the mobile application system. Link REIT is concerned about the usability of the mobile application. It is imperative to create a user-friendly system by offering an intuitive and accessible interface. Members can navigate the mobile application with ease, enhancing their overall experience and boosting engagement, leading to increased participation rates and activity levels.

We conduct various tests on the mobile application, including penetration testing, load testing, and battle testing, to ensure the program meets network security standards.
