What inspired you to build the above product/ service?
When I shifted from Mumbai to Bhopal I was looking for good mechanic for my vehicle, after a day long search I found one and he came 2 hours late from his promised time. I was so frustrated my entire day was lost. My wife then said can we provide one stop solution for all vehicle related problems, why shouldn’t we make an app as a solution. Our phone today handles almost everything, so why not this..? The idea caught my attention and seed for MyFleetCare was sown in my mind. After that incidence, I have seen so many individuals struggling to get their vehicles repaired from roadside mechanics and my commitment to build MyFleetCare was increasing day by day.
