Taxify Rebrands To Bolt Amidst Customer Complaints

Published

on

Taxify, the leading European on-demand transportation platform, is changing its name to Bolt and introducing a new logo. The update brings the brand identity in line with the company’s broader vision of transportation that has already expanded from ride-hailing, with cars and motorbikes, to scooter sharing.

Speaking on why the company chose to make the change, Markus Villig, CEO and co-founder, Bolt said, “Taxify launched five years ago with a mission to make urban transportation more convenient and affordable. Our first product was a taxi dispatch solution that gave the company its original name.”

The Estonian-born tech company has evolved in leaps and bounds since its inception to now serve 25 million customers in over 30 countries globally, making it a leader in Europe and Africa. It was also the first company to bring ride-hailing and scooter sharing together in one single app and is currently working on expanding the scooter sharing service across a number of European cities.

“While we’ve made progress on our mission, we’ve also started to outgrow parts of our brand, including the name. Given our ambition to solve transportation problems on an increasingly broader scale, we want the brand to reflect the company’s future rather than the past. Our new name ‘Bolt’ stands for fast, effortless movement – exactly what the experience of getting around in a city should be, be it by car, scooter or public transport. It also underscores our belief that the future of transportation will be electric”, Country Manager for Uganda at Bolt, Julian Byamugisha, explained.

The new brand will be gradually rolled out across Bolt’s global markets over the following weeks. Bolt users will not need to take any action as the app will update automatically.

The Ajiry App to solve the unemployment problem. 

Published

on

By Staff Writer

Unemployment is still a bad vice in Uganda. Each day that passes, the rate skyrockets. To tackle this problem, we have introduced a platform called Ajiry App.

It was developed on grounds of solving unemployment by bridging the gap between employees and employers.

This is a platform that connects people to people, business to people and people to business.

It was driven by the insight that the real problem wasn’t lack of jobs, but how to find the available jobs. The app is here to ease the process of connecting people to prospective employers.

“We also wanted to solve the inconvenience of youth having to move miles with brown envelopes looking for jobs so we thought a platform where one can earn from their several skills without having to spend too much and go through much trouble with middle men,” says Judith Kurubakanya from Ajiry App Uganda.

The app is available on playstore for download however one can still register directly from the web without downloading the app. This provision was put in place to cater for clients without smartphones but can access internet cafe and register their skills with the app.
