World’s leading delivery player, Glovo, has become the first ever delivery app to provide COVID-19 testing services to its customers in Ghana.
In partnership with leading Health facility Claron Health International, Glovo is set to provide customers in Accra with access to a convenient booking engine for In-Clinic or At-home COVID-19 testing.
To benefit from this ground-breaking service by Glovo and its trusted partner Claron Health International, customers will be required to select Claron Covid test page on the Glovo app to book for a Covid test. Claron Health then receives an order with details of type of test, time of booking, customer and payment information. A staff member from Claron Health will reach out to confirm further details where necessary.
Customers get to either access COVID-19 testing services at home or at the clinic depending on which option the customer selects. Results of the test are sent to customers via email or WhatsApp.
Speaking on this innovation, General Manager of Glovo Ghana, Pearlyn Budu revealed that the addition of COVID-19 testing to its multiple services was propelled by the growing demand for regular COVID-19 testing and the company’s eagerness to serve communities and provide convenience during this pandemic.
“As a company that prides itself with providing access to expedient delivery services to make lives easier, there is nothing more important to us than to present convenience to people in times of uncertainties regarding health and safety. We are very much excited to have partnered with Claron Health to provide access to timely and affordable testing facilities,” she said.
Pearlyn added that observing the resurgence of COVID-19 outbreaks around the world and the alarming rate of rising in COVID-19 cases in the country, Glovo is committed to reducing the current curve of the spread through the Glovo-Claron Healthcare partnership which will bring testing to the doorsteps of many.
Glovo is one of the world’s leading multi-category delivery players who launched its operations in Ghana in March 2021. The on-demand platform aims to make the lives of Ghanaians easier by providing access to convenient delivery services.
Glovo users are provided with access to different categories to choose from such as Restaurants, Supermarket, Drinks, Package Delivery, and Anything. Glovo has the ‘Anything’ category which is the most unique category, as it allows users to run errands from the comfort of their location.
Users can also leave notes or a list of the items that they need, and Glovo couriers will deliver them. Also, in some locations such as Osu, East Legon, and Spintex, the app has the ‘Shops & Gifts’ category, which allows users to shop directly from various stores.
On the Glovo app, orders can be made to be received on-demand or scheduled to be received on a date and time that is more convenient for the user. There are several payment methods that users can choose from. The platform accepts Mobile Money, Cash and Direct debit cards as means of making payments.
