A brand new app is being created in Nigeria in partnership with CarXie and is ready to be launched soon. The app is designed to fix inter-city trips as quickly as possible by providing cabs quickly that offer comfort as well as safety and affordability.
During a briefing before the launch, CarXie's Managing Director, Chinedu Amadi, stated that the app was created to ensure Nigeria will become a major contributor to the technology based transportation market.
Before its launch on July 27th, according to Amadi, the app will be available on both Google Play and the Apple Store.
Amadi went on to say:
“CarXie is on the path to increase by several notches the definition of innovation in Nigeria in relation to globalisation through mobile transportation. It comes on board with awesome features that answer a number of questions – What challenges do we face when arranging our trips? Will the cab be functional and comfortable with a courteous driver? Can the Police or Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) stop and delay the cab (your trip) for ‘particulars’? Will the trip have an almost zero per cent possibility of having an accident? What of the security of life and luggage? How do we ensure that no one chances the rider in terms of costs? What of the anonymity that is aiding the hydra headed crime that is called kidnapping? The greatest advantage of home-grown technology in collaboration with foreign technical partners is its ability to effectively solve local problems as CarXie is designed to do and enhance technical competence of indigenous firms like Dukan George Limited.”
“A rider is expected to issue his Bank Verification Number (BVN), as a means of social identification, each vehicle is automatically tracked, and voice chats are possible during rides. The driver and vehicle verification are so thorough that they yield only courteous and comfortable service. There are three tiers of supervision embedded in that CarXie offerto ensure quality and trust,” he said.
Amadi went on to say that CarXie is another chance for Nigeria to use goods and services made for Nigeria. They'll utilize international partners to deliver these goods and services with a focus on the direct needs of Nigerians especially for mobile transportation.
He went on to emphasize that Nigerians should download CarXie's app as either a driver/owner or as a rider. Amadi also wants the government, at every level, to continue to work on and improve the roads around the country. Better roads and services would assist in delivering goods and people to their destination quickly, and end up saving money.
