NUL AND FOKOTHI GRADUATES USE LOW-COST TECHNOLOGY TO RUN A TAXI BUSINESS

 

So you are one of those who enjoy the convenience of calling a taxi cab anytime, anywhere? Then, meet the chaps who are applying very low-cost solutions to help you.

The team of Lerotholi Polytechnic (Fokothi) and National University of Lesotho (NUL) graduates made a GPS-free app so you can request a taxi at an extremely low cost.

They produced a low-cost alternative to verify your cell numbers, and they created a low-cost way to ensure their cab drivers and passengers are safe.

Their system is called Duraperf.
