Jugnoo, a mobile app, offering the largest network of auto-rickshaws in India, announces its alliance with Zophop. Zophop, a public transportation information mobile app, empowers daily travelers using public transportation to make the best travel decisions, based on route, modes, and time required. The partnership is aimed at reciprocal growth for both the parties. It not only boosts the services offered by Jugnoo and enhances its customer reach, but also adds an extra mode of transportation in the vehicle options on Zophop.
Elaborating on the collaboration, Samar Singla, Founder and CEO, Jugnoo commented, “Given their interest in a space where the customers can conveniently opt for the best travel routes, sources and fares, it is a great opportunity for Jugnoo to collaborate with Zophop. A synergy like this will certainly clout the service through our platform and add to our existing user base of a million.”
Vinayak Bhavnani, Co-founder and CEO, Zophop further commented, “Autos play a very important role in the entire public transportation experience as a quick and easy transportation mode within short distances at lower costs. This partnership with Jugnoo will certainly bring great value to Zophop users as now they can see availability, ETA, and fare of autos near their location with just one click. This eliminates the need for waiting and looking for autos on the streets as they can check out all this on their smartphones.”
The alliance makes practical sense as it only enhances the current business models of both the companies. Zophop’s customers now have an additional mode of transport to choose from, which is also cost effective, apart from cabs, metros, buses etc. The association enhances Jugnoo’s services, as the search results will be filtered and faster for any travel queries that people may have.
With steady expansion, Jugnoo is now operational in 22 cities in India. However after this association, over 200,000 Zophop users will gain access to Jugnoo in 8 cities viz. Chandigarh, Jaipur, Gurgaon/Delhi, Indore, Ahmedabad, Pune, and Nagpur.
