Africa’s leading shared-mobility startup, Treepz, is set to launch Business Treepz, a new service aimed at providing staff bus solutions and bus rental service in a structured, accessible, and predictable manner for corporate organisations including companies, schools, churches and tour operators.
Treepz announced the launch of this new service on the 16th of September 2022 – to commemorate the company’s three year anniversary across Ghana, Nigeria and Uganda. Business Treepz takes away the pain for organisations who want to rent or hire a high quality bus for their companies, schools or events. The service promises to provide customers with the same high-standards that Treepz is known for in making commuting better for its customers using its technology.
This service will also help organisations to better manage their business operations by providing them with fleet management solutions backed by technology and data. In turn, these organisations will save time and money while improving the efficiency of their own services. Parents can now track the commute of their kids to school and back, making sure they’re safe during their journey. Tour companies no longer have to worry about conveying their clients around the city or between cities – they can simply order a bus through Business Treepz and enjoy peace of mind while they’re on vacation!
The Country Manager of Treepz Ghana, Isidore Kpotufe, points out that with Business Treepz the firm will continue to bring more value to businesses: “We want to make transportation less of a worry for Ghanaian organisations and help them to focus on what is important, to grow their business*.
Business Treepz is an online platform for users to book a bus tailored to their specific needs with just one click, without having to go through numerous rental platforms or pay exorbitant amounts of money. The service has been designed with the user’s convenience and comfort in mind and will give them access to all types of bus options. Users can choose from a variety of vehicles which allows them to get a bus to get around town easily.
Speaking on the launch of the new service, the Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder of Treepz, Onyeka Akumah said, “We are excited about launching Business Treepz today because following up on the feedback from our customers, we can better fulfil the requirements of organisations looking to benefit from our high quality transportation service that also allows the use of technology through our app or websites in Africa. We are focused on growing our partnerships with businesses and schools to make sure more Africans can move comfortably and safely to wherever they have to go driven by our technology and data.”
Business Treepz has so far partnered with top organisations including Maarif International School, MTN, University of Ghana Medical Centre, Charter House (organisers of Miss Malaika), CEIBS in Ghana, while the likes of Reddington Schools, Wakanow, Tek Experts all in Nigeria have also enjoyed its service.
