A NEW online driving service by name TopazTaxi was recently launched to add to the increasing competitive online driving environment.
Akosua Boakye, Business Development Partner at Streams Consulting Limited, a franchisee of TopazTaxi, said TopazTaxi was in Ghana to fill the gap left by other operators.
She also said it was ready to render its services nationwide and also introducing lifetime packages to driver partners.
“As we speak TopazTaxi is available in all the regional and districts across Ghana. TopazTaxi is again challenged by the fact that even the cities in Ghana still have road transportation gaps which needs to be filled. It’s a big challenge every morning and evening to see trolls of commuters waiting for a bus or taxi.”
Theophilus Opoku, a technologist and transport industry analyst, who was special guest of honor at the ceremony, said “This is not just another competitor in the Ride-Hailing App Market, but the game changer for the transport market. “TopazTaxi gives riders the option of a posh Private Saloon, SUVs, Yellow Taxi, Courier Service, Car Rentals, Car Pooling and more. Riders are given the choice of paying for the trip with cash, mobile money and later to be added credit/debit card.”
The app is available at the Google and Apple stores with a dedicated app for Drivers – TopazDriver with amazing features. This an all-inclusive online transport app with very exciting features that gives variety to riders.
In addition, plans are far advanced to incorporate into the app, online mechanic, a provident fund scheme, access to ‘work and pay’ schemes, police hotline and many more.
The business model of TopazTaxi is to work with franchisees to ensure excellent customer care for partner drivers and riders.
Angela Acheampong, Customer Care Partner at Streams Consulting, noted “our prices are adjusted to meet the changing fuel prices while offering great incentives to cushion drivers and riders.”
She added: “TopazTaxi runs on a solid platform with full Ghanaian ownership and support from our US office. From Ghana TopazTaxi will soon be making inroads in other countries across Africa.”
