Summary
Autoxona brings local dealers, parts' sellers, and service providers in Africa together, provide them with online visibility and help customers (automotive users/owners) find them all in one place; making it easier to compare products and services at the same time purchase products, book services, and schedule appointments. Automotive, we relate to motor vehicles such as cars,buses,vans,trucks, trailers,tankers,etc
We're redefining the current operational model by giving our customers or users a more efficient, clean, well-organized, modern, and transparent access to products and services with great customer service, more merchandise, and online experience, unlike what it is now
Traditionally, it is incommodious to purchase automotive products and at the same time burdensome to get Automotive services in Africa. The markets are dirty, less organised, archaic, and not transparent. Hence inconvenience users
The automative users/owners have but only two options:
Get products and services from very expensive, environmentally limited firms and service centers [about 1% of the market]
Get products and services from unexamined, uncertified, and poorly mannered traditional dealers and wayside workshops [about 95 % of the market]
The traditional markets currently used are corrupt, dirty, unnecessarily overcrowded, noisy, and underdeveloped [about 95% of the market]
The majority of the automotive users in Africa can not afford the expensive firms and service centers where expensive, quality, and reliable products and services delivery can be promised thus they rely so exclusively on the traditional markets, dealers, and wayside workshops
But cheap, low-quality, shifty products and services are the quintessential troubles associated with the traditional markets, dealers, and wayside workshops
We are building a system for thoroughly examined and certified automotive products dealers, service providers, and users. A system that makes efficient buying and selling of automotive products, booking of automotive services, pricing and payments, scheduling appointments, ratings, reviews...etc
On Autoxona, an automotive user/buyer, products dealer or service provider can buy or sell products, book services, schedule appointments for inspection, car diagnosis, and scrap recycling
Autoxona users will transact in a well organised, clean, modern, transparent, and more efficient way. We'll grant our users|customers access to more merchandise, more selection, and great customer service
