Strengthening its presence in the Philippines, Wunder Mobility–the Hamburg-based technology company behind the urban carpooling app Wunder Carpool– recently added a new service to its portfolio: employee transportation shuttles. One of the first customers for the new service is Nowcom, a leading BPO with more than 400 employees in Ortigas. As a step towards their future mobility portfolio, Wunder and Nowcom collaborated with Marubeni Corporation, a Japanese trading company who eventually became their investor on the said project.
Nowcom has been using Wunder Shuttle in Metro Manila since last June. The shuttles are available in multiple regions of Metro Manila. Mobile technology guides drivers according to passenger demand. Employees have responded positively to the introduction of the new shuttle service, reducing the commute time by 44%, and recording employee satisfaction nearly at 100%.
“The pilot started with the morning shift. Now, we are discussing implementing the services for the night shift, which lacks more reliable and safe transportation options”, complements Kamdar. QA engineer Josephine Cabrera from Nowcom affirms the service improved her commute to the office: “Commuting has never been easier and more convenient, especially during rainy season when transportation is especially complicated. Drivers are courteous and informative,” said CEO of Nowcom, Jay Kamdar.
In the future, Wunder Mobility would like to create a mobility ecosystem including specialized vehicles to provide even more comfort to passengers.
