Keeping these problems in mind a mobile application-based service has been launched to relieve car owners from these difficulties. The name of this app-based service is 'Vroom'.
What is Vroom?
Now you can search for damaged car parts with the smartphone at your fingertips. Further, you can also properly manage the fuel of the car through your phone. Such services have been created by Bangladeshi software entrepreneurs. Mobile application-based service Vroom is providing hassle-free service to car owners.
Vroom is an online car service provider. Its journey started in July 2017 and the company has been successfully providing services for more than four years.
How did Vroom Start its journey?
A few friends started this service in Dhaka with the aim of providing benefits to car owners. Everyone felt that there needs to be a company that can come home and takes care of the car. With this goal in mind, they started a journey by forming a company. The entrepreneurs involved in creating this service came from different backgrounds and professions. But everyone's goal was to provide the service right and this is how the Vroom was born.
However, the initial goal was to provide home services and establish a network of professional workshops in the country. So, the car owners can take safe service with confidence and guarantee. Besides, car owners could buy original parts at the right price.
Confidence is the key to success for Vroom workers. In the beginning, they inspected 300 workshops before starting the journey and considered only 31 workshops that had the quality in terms of skilled manpower and equipment. With them, Vroom launched an app called Vroom 24x7 on Android and iOS platforms. Home service can be taken through the app.
Apart from this, Vroom offers a membership card so that the users get various benefits. Later, fuel cards were introduced for the first drivers in association with Eastern Bank. Drivers can buy fuel without any hassle. The fuel bill is paid on a monthly basis. Hence, this reduces the daily hassle.
Gradually, they have enhanced their services. Vroom didn’t want to be limited to just home or workshop services. For this reason, they introduced the fuel management card. In addition, fleet management solutions have been introduced for corporate customers. The entire service is available on a single screen.
With this software, the corporate customer can know the cost of each of his vehicles instantly. In addition to that, cost management, control, movement issues can be monitored too. This is the advantage of information technology and Vroom brought these advantages.
Although Vroom started their journey by home service and workshop service, they have expanded their service into more categories. Currently, they offer 11 services in total.
