Cameroonian firm Intelart Technology has entered the local e-hailing market launching its OnGo app, punting security as the distinguishing feature from its competition.

OnGo this week made its debut in the main cities of Yaoundé and Douala with plans to expand to the 10 administrative regions of the country.

OnGo says it is 100% Cameroonian – developed by local engineers grouped under a team of Cameroonian engineers from abroad, and as home-grown firm, it will serve the locals well.

Lamine Nyamoutet, CEO, Intelart Technology, says the service will simplify travels anywhere in Cameroon using good quality, compliant vehicles, maintained and driven by professional drivers.

He adds, OnGo is the first digital platform for urban and inter-urban transport authorised by Cameroon’s Ministry of Transport.

E-hailing has been gaining ground in the central African nation, which already had key players such as Yango, which operates under Russian multinational technology company Yandex, as well as Gozem and Bee.

OnGo is available on Google Play and Apple Store, with regular updates planned. The company says its services are available 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
