Partnering with two of Sri Lanka’s cricketing legends, Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara, VirTrans Capital recently launched YOUCAB and SYTRANS, the latest player in the Island’s e-Transport hailing game. The soft launch of the product was held at the beginning of this year amidst a gathering of media and well-wishers. Today’s event also saw the participation of a large cross-section of Colombo’s elite, media personnel and the company’s top brass.
Since the soft launch, YOUCAB and SYTRANS has been in the process of identifying drivers who fit in with the ethos of the company, while also providing road network, driving methods and soft skills training to new recruits. The company has invested heavily on the training and development aspect of the business recognizing a need for superior customer service in the transport sector.
“Our aim is not to simply be a transport solution provider but also someone that people can trust and rely on. As a brand we want to be identified with the same values of humility, trust and reliability that is personified by our two strategic partners Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene”, said Thushan Jayaratne, the Chief Operating Officer of YOUCAB.
