TRAVELTIME success story is one of its kind which has all the elements that requires a story to become a best seller.

2004 - The first breakthrough came with acquiring a contract from Infosys (BPO Devision). Commencing with 4 cabs and 2 buses for the transportation of its staff on an 'on-call' and 'monthly' basis. It resulted in transforming the way we were doing business and also gave us a new identity as operators in staff transport. This rapidly expanded to TRAVELTIME taking over the entire staffing transport solution and deploying 150 cabs and 50 buses.
This staff transport solution was managed through the vendor-based module with TRAVELTIME leveraging its experience in transportation and technology with Infosys.
