On 26 October 2020, Machines announced that an employee at their Northpoint service centre tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee, who last worked at the Mid Valley outlet on 16 October 2020, was summoned by the Malaysia Ministry of Health for testing, after close contact with a COVID-19 positive case.

The employee went for the test on 23 October 2020, and it came back positive today, 26 October 2020.

Machines immediately close their Northpoint service centre outlet for disinfection and cleaning, and it will remain closed until further notice.

They are now working with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to identify close contacts for COVID-19 testing and quarantine.

This is the second COVID-19 incident involving Machines. On 12 October, they shut down the Machines Mid Valley retail outlet, after an employee there tested positive.

Dear Valued Customers

We would like to confirm that an employee in our Machines Service Centre at Northpoint Office Mid Valley KL received a positive Covid-19 test result on 26 October 2020.

The employee has not been at work since clocking out on 16 October 2020. Following close contact with another Covid positive case outside of work, the employee was summoned to KKM for testing on 23 October 2020 and received her test result today.

We are working closely with KKM to identify contacts for testing and quarantine. We shall be conducting wider precautionary testing in the interest of the safety of our employees and customers. Our Northpoint Service Centre is closed for disinfection and cleaning until further notice.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to adhere to KKM’s and MKN’s guidelines and SOPs to deter the spread of the disease and keep our community safe.

Machines Northpoint COVID-19 : Should You Be Concerned?

These shopping mall infections reinforce the importance of contact tracing, and the MySejahtera mobile app which logs the movements of its users.

While shopping malls and all other public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use MySejahtera, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.

Using the MySejahtera mobile app also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.

If you happen to be in close contact with this Machines employee at their Northpoint service centre, you will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine and undergo a COVID-19 screening test.

COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the branch of any infectious particles.

More importantly, face masks greatly reduce the risk of infection. That’s why it is critical for everyone to wear a face mask in public.

The Machines Protection Plan Explained!

Machines Sdn Bhd (Machines) just launched a device protection plan for customers in Malaysia. Known as the Machines Protection Plan (MPP), this plan provides protection from accidental damage such as cracked screens and water damage for as low as 42 sen per day.

 

The Machines Protection Plan

The Machines Protection Plan (MPP) allows customers to enjoy one (1) screen replacement or one (1) full device replacement during the two (2) year coverage period. The MPP price ranges from RM 299 – RM 899 (~US$ 73-219), depending on the model of the protected device, and can be obtained at local Machines stores upon purchase of a new device.

The Machines Protection Plan (MPP) provides coverage for parts and labour cost. For a full device replacement claim, a service fee will be charged on top of the price for the MPP. For example, for an iPhone SE full device replacement, customers will need to pay a service fee of RM299 on top of the iPhone SE MPP cost of RM299.

[adrotate group=”2″]

A survey by Otterbox Inc. in 2015 stated that 29% of Malaysians accidentally damage their smartphones within the first three months of purchase. The same study also revealed that 75% of Malaysian smartphone users have damaged their devices almost 3 times in the past 5 years.

Machines has selected Aon Insurance Brokers (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Aon Malaysia) as its insurance broker to offer this device protection plan, underwritten by AIG Malaysia Insurance Berhad.

Machines is also working to extend the Machines Protection Plan to include new devices purchased from third parties, including telcos.

iPhone 7 / 7 Plus RM 599 / ~US$ 146
iPhone 8 / 8 Plus RM 599 / ~US$ 146
iPhone X RM 899 / ~US$ 219

 

Service Fee Table For Full Device Replacement
