ZURICH, SWITZERLAND – EQS Newswire – 4 June 2020 – Achiko Ltd. (ISIN KGY0101M1024), a FinTech
company listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange, has launched its product, Teman
Sehat (http://temansehat.co) and is currently conducting testing. Based on the
Achiko platform, Teman Sehat, meaning “Health Buddy” in Indonesian,
is a set of interconnected health-related applications, starting with Covid-19
test results capture and contact tracing. Initial acceptance testing has
produced encouraging feedback in Indonesia and Achiko plans expanded trials in
June 2020.

Upon checking in at a location, Teman Sehat charges a small fee. Those fees are
collected by Achiko and allocated to health care and quarantine facilities as
well as public education, subsidising tests for Covid-19. The result is
displayed on a temporary badge that verifies users’ testing status in order to be
able to proceed to safe areas such as boarding a plane, working at a food
processing plant, workplaces, schools and many other places. Achiko is looking
forward to being able to report market reach, average fees collected, testing
numbers and other key metrics over the next few months.

Achiko itself will not perform Covid-19 tests, and will work with partners
to organise testing, to help subsidise testing costs and to make the results
meaningful to places such as workplaces, airports, schools, aged care facilities
and many other locations where the risks and consequences of Covid-19 may be
hazardous.

Achiko’s platform approach has expanded from payments to innovations in
industry verticals such as e-commerce and Buy Now / Pay Later, wealth
management, gaming and other industries. The Teman Sehat ecosystem is an
example of how Achiko is responding to the current challenges and opportunities
in business and economy with a solution that aims to increase the benefits of
testing while also reducing or offsetting the costs of testing, quarantine,
education and healthcare.

Achiko is contemplating other applications to be included on its platform
such as telehealth, ticketing or couponing and is looking forward to building
and evaluating product extensions as time passes. The next steps will be to
extend Achiko’s contractual footprint in Indonesia and generate services on its
platform. Achiko no longer has a relationship with Trustscan Pte Ltd. and is
proceeding with an alternative set of solutions.
