The Ulatech Joint Stock Company recently launched a car-hailing app for smartphones called “ULA” in the central city of Da Nang.
The app should help passengers book car services and drivers find customers, as well as make it easier to search for restaurants, hospitals and pharmacies.
To encourage Vietnamese people to use Vietnam-made products, the application costs Vietnamese drivers less than similar foreign applications. Vietnamese drivers can also use the application for free during a trial period.
Anyone with iOS or Android smartphones can download and use the ULA app free of charge.
Tran Nguyen Song Han, director of the technology company, said that he expected the app to usher in benefits to the society. “Ulatech will focus on research to improve and diversify its products in various fields in the upcoming time.”
Ulatech said it would also expand operating areas for the ULA app to other big cities in Viet Nam by next year.
In addition, the company also plans to bring Ulacoin (ULC) into use as a means of payment when ULA becomes more popular.
Users can pay by ULC when using ULA app at all linkage points of Ulatech.
