From Tealive to The Body Shop, Web Bytes’ 17 Years of Empowering Retail and F&B

Founded in 2007, Web Bytes is a software development company that specialises in software solutions for the retail and food and beverage (F&B) industries, and is 38% owned by GD Express Carrier Bhd (GDeX).

The company began as a small project attempting to reinvent retail software and yet today, it is a RM30 million business with customers such as F&B brands such as ZUS Coffee and Gigi Coffee, as well as retailers such as The Body Shop.

With over 5,000 retail merchants across Southeast Asia and billions of dollars worth of retail transactions per year, today we dive into how Web Bytes has evolved over the last 17 years, the value they bring to the retail & F&B space, how they are positioning themselves to leverage AI and Machine Learning in the retail tech space, and much more.
