Why Tiger Airways Re-brands to Tigerair?

For those who doesn't know yet, Singapore-based budget carrier Tiger Airways is now TigerAir. The new identity of the leading airline company goes live this month of July. So what's new?

A New Look of their Website and Mobile App

Re-branding will be useless unless you change the way you look. TigerAir did that by revamping their website. Though the Tigerish motif is still there, a combination of orange and dark grey hues, the redesigned website looks more neat with more white spaces than before. I personally appreciate how they show their deals now. Before, it was being shown in flash slides. Now, all the deals were in huge tiles. I also like that the booking section was enlarged and placed at the center of page.


Overall, the website is cleaner and more user friendly.

The mobile app was also redesigned. The icon was changed to reflect their new identity and the user interface was simplified as well. The change in mobile app though was not as drastic as that of their website.

I also think that the developers of the app needs to polish it more because the first time I tried to use it , it crashed. :-(

A New Logo

From a ferocious Tiger to a simple-font logo. Tiger Air explained how the logo was conceptualized.



Our new logo is simplified to depict the personality of the new Tigerair brand — warm, passionate and genuine. 
The rounded fonts depict friendliness while the two dots, the first in grey and the second in orange, symbolizes Tigerair's role in connecting our customers from one point to another. The different colored dots also depict a friendly wink. 
The orange semi-circle acts as a subtle reference to a tiger's tail, as well as a smile, representative of the passion and commitment in everything we do.


Why Re-brand?

TigerAir said that the re-brand represents their belief that travel should be about great experiences and memories. TigerAir wants to contribute to that by offering affordable air fares that will give more people the opportunity to go to places where they can relax, enjoy and connect to people in Asia Pacific.

What's Coming For Tiger Air?

Part of their re-branding is their initiative to improve customer experience. Their goal is to make travel as stress free and easy as possible for their passengers. Below are just some of the upcoming features and services that will enable TigerAir to do just that.

  • "voice of the customer" system to gather feedback from our passengers
  • Ability to make changes to flight bookings online (this went live on July 3)
  • New fare product bundles that cater to different travelers' needs
  • Online pre-purchase of meals and snacks for all Tigerair flights
  • Many more destinations in the region
  • Mobile and web check-in for all passengers

Takeaways

Well, I am personally glad that TigerAir is trying to innovate. Their entry to Philippine market by acquiring SEAIR was a move that will stimulate competition among the local low-cost airline operators. Competition, when properly managed and regulated will spur industry-wide innovation. The ultimate beneficiaries are the customers.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real! So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty.
