Tookan partners with PayLo to tackle the implications of demonetisation on its customers

Tookan announces its partnership with PayLo, an omni-channel payment platform, to provide a hassle free payment option to its customers amidst the demonetisation wave in the country. The move to partner with PayLo is to provide digital payment option and ease the payment related challenges faced by Tookan’s customers. This partnership will enable over a million Tookan’s customers to continue with their day to day operations without any interruption caused by cash crunch in the market.

Tookan is fully managed SaaS based platform that empowers business to manage and track the dynamic field workforce. Tookan specializes in providing interactive map based interface to streamline business operations and get a summary of business operations on a single dashboard.  It also helps users to ascertain who their repeat customers are and what do they have to say about the brand through rating and review system.

Speaking on the association with PayLo, Rohit Goyal, Chief Executive Officer, Tookan, said “Demonetisation has created a lot of upheaval among the clients and caused payment related problems across the nation. We wanted to provide seamless and user friendly payment interface to our clients. Payment integration was a priority for Tookan and given the complexity caused immediately after the demonetisation announcement. With multiple payment portals used in India, it’s quite a time consuming process to integrate them all, hence we decided to approach PayLo that aggregates all the payment gateways and helps make online transactions for our user’s quick and hassle free.”

Rohit Chadda, Founder & Managing Director, PayLo, said “With more than 70% cash on delivery transactions, the Indian e-commerce and hyperlocal delivery space has been a focus area for us to digitize cash payments. The partnership with Tookan solves a huge problem for consumers since it will enable customers who were earlier cancelling their COD orders to now pay cashless on delivery. With the liquidity crunch that demonetization has created in the market, both customers and merchants are embracing digital payments in order to minimize the impact on their day to day lives and this integration will help them move further in this direction.”

Tookan has its presence in more than 150 countries with over 15,000 fleet. Tookan has already partnered with industries like food delivery, laundry delivery, gift delivery, healthcare to name a few. The software helps in managing field workforce, route optimization, deliveries, appointments and advanced data analytics.
