Cellcard launches Covid-19 Vault to support Cambodians through the pandemic

Published Date: May, Monday 17, 2021

Cellcard today launched the Covid-19 Vault in the Pouk Mak Chat App for the people of Cambodia to digitally store their vaccination records.

The new service comes during difficult times for many communities, families and businesses affected by the current lockdowns and curfews.

In the coming weeks, the service will be expanded to include Covid-19 test results and a full track and trace feature.

The Covid-19 Vault gives people a robust secure place to store their vaccination status as well as give peace of mind as they attempt to stay safe and limit their exposure to the virus.

Cellcard Chief Executive Officer Ian Watson said the Covid-19 Vault was one of the world’s first app-based e-health services developed by Cambodians for Cambodians.

“The service is on par with similar e-health services being used in the US and parts of Europe where people use their digital records at airports, hospitals hotels, and venues,” Mr Watson said.

“Our service shows just how good Cambodia is at building digital products to suit immediate needs.

“Cellcard stands strongly with the people of Cambodia and we will do everything possible to support the Kingdom through the crisis.

“We have seen an incredible shift in digital adoption during the pandemic reinforcing that now is the time to drive e-health services in Cambodia.”

The Covid-19 Vault is the latest feature in Cellcard’s Pouk Mak Chat App which gives Cambodians the same features as popular global apps but in Khmer language and with full encryption and data safely stored in Cambodia.

The App is easy to use for people of all ages and there is no charge to download or use the app for voice and video calls, sharing documents and stickers and subscribing to personalised news feeds.

“All you need is a phone, SIM card and regular data plan with any operator,” Mr Watson said.

“But if you are a Cellcard customer, we will give you 2GB of data for every month to show our commitment and support.”

He said Cellcard would continue to maintain and improve its world-class network service with engineer  crews entering red and orange zones to maintain services and install new sites.

Cellcard has installed new sites across 92 districts since January as part of its $50M expansion plan this year.

“Cellcard will continue to innovate and find new ways and technologies to support the people and the economy of Cambodia in line with our Chairman Neak Ohkna Kith Meng’s vision for a fully digitalised nation.”

The Pouk Mak App is available to download from both Android and IOS App Stores. After a simple two-minute registration users can go into Settings, click COVID-19 VAULT, scan and save their COVID vaccinations card and other important health documents to their Pouk Mak App for quick access and viewing.
