A new drive-hailing APP known as TopazTaxi has been launched – adding to the increasingly competitive online driving environment.
Speaking at the soft launch, Akosua Boakye – the Business Development Partner at Streams Consulting Limited, a franchisee of TopazTaxi – said TopazTaxi is here to fill the gap left by other operators through taking it services nationwide and also introducing lifetime packages to driver-partners.
As we speak, TopazTaxi is available in all the regions and districts across Ghana. TopazTaxi is again challenged by the fact that even the cities in Ghana still have road transportation gaps which need to be filled. It’s a big challenge every morning and evening to see troops of commuters waiting for a bus or taxi.
The special guest of honor at the ceremony, Mr. Theophilus Opoku – a technologist and Transport industry analyst, has this to say: “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, SUV, Yellow Taxi, Courier Service, Car Rental, 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 cards. 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 has very exciting features which give variety to riders. In addition, plans a far advanced to incorporate the following into the APP: Online mechanic; a provident fund scheme; access to ‘work and pay’ schemes; a 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. When questioned about the price competitiveness and robustness of the APP, this was the response from the Customer Care Partner at Streams Consulting, Mrs. Angela Acheampong:
“Our prices are adjusted to meet the changing fuel prices while offering great incentives to cushion drivers and riders.” 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.
