BHUBANESWAR: Even as Ola and Uber are competing among themselves to win the driver’s seat, Ezi Drive, a newly launched mobile app, seems to be racing ahead of the curve. The first-of-its-kind mobile app, launched in Bengaluru and Chennai, facilitates hiring of both drivers as well as cabs on the same app.
Having carved out a niche for itself, Ezi Drive caters to all segments of the driver hire market, including local and outstation travels.

“We take all the necessary measures to assure passengers’ safety including thorough background verification checks for drivers, detailed documentation process for driver recruitment, which includes referral letters/ police certificates, periodic driver in-house training and recruiting only experienced drivers,” said Ram Prasath, CEO & founder of Ezi Drive Tours and Travels Pvt Ltd. The start-up will not have surge-pricing or pooling facility.

The company has an ever-growing customer base, which currently stands at around one lakh and a supplier base of around 800 drivers. Prasath said that the company aims to double its fleet size and is also looking to foray into the northern markets, including New Delhi, by the year-end.

Stressing on the need for ensuring safe transport for everyone, especially women, Prasath further added that Ezi Drive app has all functionalities that makes it equipped to deal with any concerns such as SOS alert, real-time tracking of drivers and cabs, cashless payment, and direct email interface with the top management.

Like others, this app also allows customers to give feedbacks and rate the driver at the end of a ride. If the driver’s rating drops below the standard set by Ezi Drive, he could be relieved from the system. “This encourages drivers to maintain high quality in their services,” said Prasath.
