Rakuten Viber and Techmandu have struck a partnership enabling users ability to book rides with a new Viber chatbot “Viber bot”.
With this collaboration, Taximandu aims at making booking rides easier through its ride-hailing service. The chatbot in Viber lets users book taxis directly from within the app.
According to Taximandu CEO Arjun KC, “We are excited to partner with Rakuten Viber again to launch this new chatbot, which will make cab booking even more convenient for our users. With the Nepali New Year coming up, we want to ensure everyone has easy access to safe and reliable cab services. Our mission for the Taximandu online taxi chatbot on Viber is to help them spend more time enjoying and celebrating with their loved ones without having to worry about how to get home. Now users can easily book taxis from the Viber chatbot, no need to download other multiple apps for taxi rides”.
