F1Soft’s ride-sharing platform “JumJum” is official: Find features

Digital wallet service provider eSewa’s parent company F1Soft Group has officially launched its JumJum ride-sharing app. The new app’s formal beginning was inaugurated on Friday, Baisakh 28, 2081 at a ceremony in Kathmandu. The entry of the fintech giant into a new industry will diversify its business scope while enriching its public accessibility.

The platform called JumJum was soft-launched a few months back and was serving in the main spots in Kathmandu. The company F1Soft has procured the required technology for the service from Sri Lanka’s popular ride-hailing platform PickMe but it will be completely owned and operated as a Nepali entity.

Mr. Subash Sharma, CEO of F1Soft Group, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “F1Soft Group has always led digital innovation, continuously building an ecosystem of digital products and services to facilitate Nepal’s digital transformation. The inclusion of JumJum as a ride-sharing service enriches our ecosystem, offering convenient transportation.”

Likewise, Jiffry Zulfer, CEO of PickMe Sri Lanka said, “We are excited to partner with F1Soft International to bring our advanced ride-sharing technology to Nepal. This collaboration reflects our shared vision of leveraging technology to elevate the mobility experiences of the communities we cater to, ultimately enhancing lives. Together, we are confident that JumJum will revolutionize the transportation industry in Nepal.” The partnership between F1Soft International and PickMe Sri Lanka underscores the potential for cross-border collaboration in driving technological innovation and fostering regional growth. Leveraging PickMe’s proven technology and F1Soft’s local insights, JumJum is set to establish new standards in the ride-sharing industry.”

Safety, 0% commission, and more

The JumJum ride-sharing has a multitude of features to ensure safety and a comfortable travel experience. The navigation feature uses Google Maps with real-time traffic updates. Additionally, the company also provides an insurance facility that offers passengers security just in case of an unfortunate accident. Up to Rs 5 lakh of insurance is being provided for both the drivers and passengers.

In this, you can get navigation through Google Maps and traffic updates at the same time. Apart from this, Jumjum has also included a feature where users can book a ride not only for themselves but also for friends or family members who do not have access to the app or cannot book for themselves.

At the start, JumJum will give a 75% discount on the first three rides while drivers get a joining bonus of Rs 1,000 and other incentives including a daily bonus of up to two Rs 2,000.

Passengers can pay their JumJum ride fare using eSewa. At the same time, the drivers can get their payment and ride commission on the same mobile wallet.

For two weeks, JumJum drivers won’t have to share any commission with the company. After that, a convenient commission scheme will be implemented.

Jum Jum ride-sharing service might give a hard time to Pathao, InDrive, and others

F1Soft’s plan for a ride-sharing service might prove challenging for industry leaders such as Pathao, InDrive, etc. Nepal is already crowded with many ride-sharing apps, and a prominent company such as F1Soft venturing into the market could further intensify the competition. Particularly given the fact that its digital wallet has about 8 million users, presumably the users will have easier access to its ride-sharing platform. As digital wallet service faces a crunch, this might be the company’s idea to create a synergistic approach to keep customers intact.

Pathao has a Chhito Paisa digital wallet app which it uses for commission payment and there is a plan to heavily market it in the next few months. While InDrive has a controversial status mainly due to being unregistered, it’s an elite ride-sharing platform and could be bemused by eSewa’s diversification plans. In Nepal, ride-sharing apps provide ride-sharing as well as parcel, courier, and other services. Also recommended: Ride-sharing recognized as an industry, a much-needed leap
