DriveMe, a fleet service provider in Nigeria, today, announced the launch of its driver hailing and driver training platform, which will allow car owners to access well trained and certified drivers on demand. The 2 years old company reaffirmed its commitment to leveraging technology in its quest to tackle logistics and mobility problems in the country.
The company, which provides driver training, outsourcing and other fleet management services to corporate organisations and individuals, prides itself on quality customer service for its clients and best in class welfare for its drivers .
Speaking on the launch, Founder and CEO of DriveMe, Damilola Odunlade-Akeju, said “DriveMe driver hailing services was developed to cater to our needs in the new normal. We understand that a lot of people lost their job during the lockdown caused by the global pandemic which inadvertently led to the change in consumer pattern. Today, more people work remotely and therefore do not need a driver as they used to. Our platform was developed to deliver solutions to these two segments – those who need to hire a full-time driver and remote workers who might only need drivers occasionally, delivering economic benefits to both segments. While we remain committed to providing best-in-class fleet management and outsourcing services, we also digitized some part of our driving school curriculum because we discovered a lot of Nigerians do not have a good understanding of road signs and excellent driving ethics.”
