A new startup company, FARASSI is launching its operations in Ghana this month. Farassi operates an App which focuses on a service that allows its members/users to bargain fares/prices and Service Providers, i.e., Drivers, Motorbike riders etc. to negotiate prices for delivery of goods and services including but not limited to pick-up and drop-off of passengers and/or movable items.
The vision is to create a network transportation marketplace, that allows people to search for the lowest bidder to complete a pickup and or delivery. The Farassi service allows its members to e-bargain or e-negotiate prices when requesting a pickup and or delivery of almost anything. The delivery could be done via a saloon car, minivan, motorbike, bicycle, water tanker and trucks. Also included is the messenger/runner service called Farassi CoCu (Community Couriers) who receive requests from people within the community to pick items, example, food, flowers etc. and deliver to a destination by foot, bicycle, motorbike or car.
The Farassi solution is specifically designed for a market where it is the norm for one to haggle or negotiate prices during a business transaction. The opportunity for a person to state the price s/he is willing to pay during the barging process is an African art that dates back many centuries. Farassi has digitized this cultural practice and experience through an App and a web‐based system to give an edge to both parties in the transaction.
The objective of this startup is to revolutionize the movement of people and or items/goods within major cities and towns in Africa and North America. The App currently supports an Android OS with the iOS version in its final stage of development.
