SINGAPORE, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Collaborating with new partner, namely V Hotel Group, BookDoc Activ now promises more treats for users who work on staying active.

"We have operational presence in four (4) countries and collaboration with reward partners in twelve(12) countries. The objective of this application is to motivate users to start living a healthier lifestyle," said BookDoc founder and chief executive officer Dato' Chevy Beh.
The feature rewards its users according to their average daily steps which was tiered bronze, silver gold and platinum. Being able to sync with other health applications such as Apple Health, Samsung Health and Google Fit, it enables users to efficiently keep track of their daily exercise and get rewarded for it. By maintaining a high level of activity, users would also get discounts or freebies from major retailers and service providers, may it be at their home country or cross country redemption on monthly basis.
"BookDoc Activ does so through positive reinforcement, and with a low cost of entry. We hope to begin a social fitness movement, bringing in more partners and users, and expand and innovate to encourage even more types of healthy behaviour," said Beh.
Exercising is crucial in preventing short and non-communicable diseases, so BookDoc is urging the nation to stay healthy and reduce healthcare cost while saving money with the rewards gained.
"When the application first started, we helped users arrange their medical appointments, but I believe prevention is better than cure, so that is why BookDoc Activ was launched," added Beh.

We like BookDoc app's features: bringing convenience to the public from connecting to nearby healthcare professionals instantly to encouraging fit and active lifestyles in such an innovative way.
