Sovin Hedge Co-founder of Zuver, said
“The concept of a driver on demand is underserved. We thought of getting an integrated app that would let customers book, track and pay for premium driver services. Moreover, we were careful to offer not just any driver, but a sophisticated, well-spoken and mannered one at your doorstep. Being a novel concept, we definitely wanted to empower this segment with technology.”
Sidhanth Mally Co-founder of Zuver said
“We ensure that our drivers have gone through multiple screening processes and tests before they become Zuver drivers. Currently, our focus is to ensure that Zuver is launched and functioning immaculately.”
