Ten Omani students create utility service app

The Talab application has been created by ten students of Ibra College of Technology.

Speaking to Muscat Daily
, Salim Amer al Harthi, the team leader of Wamda organization, stated, “We began perform on this project in January.

“We divided work among us in areas such as marketing, human resources and finance.”

On how the application functions, he stated, “Users can download the Talab application via App Store from today. After downloading, the user has to choose an item from the different categories provided such as gas cylinder, water tanker, yellow tanker [sewage collection truck], car breakdown, etc.”

Speaking of the challenges, he stated, “We faced difficulty in the course of the designing stage. That was the only challenge we had.

“People are usually busy with their lives. Our aim is to save time and offer several services on one platform.”

Talking about advertising the app, Harthi stated, “We have participated in numerous exhibitions to market the app such as the Hand in Hand initiative which was not too long ago held at Shangri La Barr al Jissah Resort &amp Spa and yet another 1 at Oman Avenues Mall. The exhibition was attended by the Minister of Commerce and Industry H E Dr Ali bin Masoud bin Ali al Sunaidy, who was impressed by the concept.

“We are using social media channels like Instagram and Twitter to promote our company Wamda.”

About future, he stated that the team desires to consist of much more utility solutions in future. “The application can be accessed from October 10 via the Apple Store. We will take customer feedback and keep updating our services.”

The group can be contacted by way of WhatsApp on 97970015.
