ESewa’s parent company F1Soft Group launched its ride-sharing app called “JumJum”, a few weeks after its beta run in Kathmandu. The leading fintech giant has also brought some offers to draw the early user base to its service. Find them all below.
F1Soft collaborated with PickMe from Sri Lanka to bring its ride-hailing service to Nepal. However, the company itself will be the sole owner and operator of the service in Nepal. Jum Jum ride-sharing app will be an out-and-out Nepali brand service. At the moment, the JumJum app provides ride-sharing service on two-wheelers only and the plan is to bring in taxis soon.
Also, do note that the app is already up and running with its webpage going live. In fact, it’s expanding aggressively for over a month. Initially, the service was soft-launched in Kathmandu with benefits of insurance, rewards, and more, which you can find below.
Nepal’s ride-sharing apps are growing in deluge with each company competing for relevancy. Currently, Nepali and foreign ride-sharing platforms are operating in Nepal. European ride-sharing app Bolt serves as just one example out of many. So, competing in the market will pose quite a journey for F1Soft.
JumJum ride-sharing app features
With the objective to bring aboard more drivers and customers as quickly as possible, ride-sharing providers are having to provide as many benefits as possible. These include no-commission, insurance, and many safety provisions. There is no exception here either. The Jum Jum app is coming with multiple bookings, bonuses, and more. Here are the top features of the Jum Jum ride-sharing app:
- Insurance after the trip is accepted: JumJum provides its riders with valuable life insurance. For this, F1Soft Group has signed an exclusive agreement with Neco Insurance. The company stresses that both rider and driver will be eligible for life insurance to give them peace of mind. The insurance will activate after a trip. If an accident occurs, up to Rs 50,000 health insurance, and up to Rs 5 lakh insurance in case of death and permanent disability can be claimed.
- Drivers to get tips and bonus: One of the differentiating highlights of the JumJum app is the tips feature. Using the Tips feature from the app, riders can offer their drivers some tips. The company won’t levy a commission on the tips drivers receive. In addition, drivers will receive a bonus after completing a said number of trips. The app lets drivers know of all the financial transactions for the trips made.
- Payment from eSewa: As the Jum Jum app is owned and operated by F1Soft, eSewa will be an obvious choice for payment. For ride payments, F1Soft has integrated the eSewa digital payment service into the Jum Jum app. So, both riders and drivers can benefit from the leading digital wallet for transactions.
- Multiple ride booking: Another highlight of the Jum Jum app is the ability to hail two rides at the same time which is not available with other ride-sharing platforms. With the Jum Jum app, you can set up multiple rides without having to complete one. Besides, riders can also book a ride for a return trip.
- Rewards: Users get rewards for using the Jum Jum app. They can use the rewards to claim benefits in offers. Soon, the company will introduce various offers and schemes. It’s just starting.
Many ride-sharing apps are already popular in Nepal. Which one do you prefer the most?
JumJum app launched in Kathmandu
Currently, the JumJum ride-sharing service is available in Kathmandu providing ride-hailing on motorbikes. It’s in an early phase so the service is available at major points in the city and is expanding ruthlessly. Soon, the service will expand out of the valley and also into foreign markets. At the moment, the drivers won’t have to pay any commission for trips. But the company plans to charge a 20% fee off the trips.
Already, over 400 drivers have joined the Jum Jum ride-hailing platform. You can also join the Jum Jum service by sending your license, vehicle, and renewed bluebook copy to the company via the Jum Jum app for drivers. You will then need to appear for training at the company’s office in Sanepa after which, you will be able to work with the app officially.
So far, over 20 have directly benefited from employment with the Jum Jum app.
