About

Rasid Maasom started to work in the Telecommunication industry after graduated from the UK. He traveled around the globe to serve in Telco multinational corporations like Nokia, Dubai Telecom, Telkomsel, etc.

In 2010, he started his first business, which is a telecommunication consulting firm called AdvancedCellNet based in Dubai. One day, officers from TalentCorp Malaysia visited Malaysians in Dubai to invite talents back to Malaysia.

Rasid Maasom decided to take the opportunity to move back to Malaysia in 2013 and settled down with his family.

In 2017, he started to develop an application called Pickiddo. Pickiddo was a cloud-based app designed to help parents track the where-about of their children during transport to and from school and home.

This idea was generated from his experience when his daughter missed the school bus. When he noticed his daughter hadn’t reached home on time and quickly rushed to the school, he saw her standing there looking at every bus that passed by.

After that incident, he was so worried about the safety of his kid. Thus, he developed Pickiddo as a mobile app that can track school buses. However, the application didn’t get a sizeable demand.

While they were trying to pitch the idea of Pickiddo, they came across a tuition center owner that was seeking tuition management software to streamline and organize their tuition services. After listening to the tuition center owner’s problems and after doing some research, they realized the tuition management software could have high demand in the market.

Hence, they decided to pivot their plan to focus on developing the tuition management software.

In 2019, they launched Pickiddo as a platform to manage online tuition by providing on-demand tuition services to those who want to learn from the best teachers anywhere in the world interactively. It has leading-edge features that can speed up the job matching process and it's powered by A.I.

The platform targets two segments of users, tuition center owners and parents who are looking for tutors to teach their children.

For tuition center owners and tutors, Pickiddo serves as a class management software and a platform to advertise their centers and classes to more parents and students. For parents and students, Pickiddo is a trustable panel for them to explore tutors and classes that covers various subjects.

Besides classes and subjects that are adhering to the government syllabus, users can also explore classes for alternative education systems and linguistic classes.

In 2020, when the pandemic hit, many of their partnered tuition centers were closed. To keep the platform afloat, they started to create their own online tuition classes and free quizzes to help the students to upskill.

Moving forward, they will strive to be the education platform that provides the best learning experience for students to achieve personal growth.

Pickiddo has joined ZOM-IN.com to collaborate in efforts to empower aspiring youths. Join us now at www.zom-in.com to participate in exciting events coming soon!
