The soft launch of our service has created quite a buzz of sorts. The reactions from our friends and well-wishers have been encouraging and positive, but, most of them have a gnawing question on their minds which is ‘Why the name Whizzy?’. I finally decided to let the cat out of the bag….. through this blog. To begin with, the word ‘whizzy’ has several connotations. The word “whiz” or “whizz” is to portray something or someone which moves fast and as you guessed it right, it has a direct contextual applicability to our services! Likewise, the word “whizzy” has a similar contextual relevance. As per google definition, whizzy means “technologically innovative or advanced” as in “a whizzy piece of software”. Our speed of service and our technological innovativeness will be reflected in the ease of placing and fulfilling requests as well as tracking and updating information on a real-time basis. We shall obviously stand true to our name by pioneering new services and state-of-the-art technology in the forthcoming months too! The story doesn’t end here. In fact it gets all the more interesting.
The other day, i happened to mention the word whizzers to a friend of mine and the curiosity quotient raised several notches, to say the least. “Who are whizzers and how do you people come up with such interesting names?”, he wondered aloud. Well, we are humble enough not to take credit for coining such a name. To answer the aforementioned question, our drivers will be called “Whizzers”. This name is inspired by a fictional comic character by marvel. Whizzer is, supposedly, a superhero who has the ability to move at superhuman speed. This Wikipedia definition of “Whizzer” perfectly fits to our context not only because of its meaning but also in the sense that a superhero usually comes to the “rescue of people in need”
Whizzy with the help of whizzers can ‘create time’ for our customers by getting things done! Get anything done is not a mere tagline of our company but a mission statement of sorts that drives our service and performance!
With job opportunities burgeoning in the new economy, one may wonder, why should drivers choose to work for Whizzy instead of other players in the market? The answer is simple-our pay to Whizzers is on par, if not more, with market trends.
Moreover, since we are sector-agnostic, we anticipate more orders coming in from customers in addition to their grocery and food delivery needs. This, in turn, translates to higher earning potential for Whizzers compared to others who are serving only in one sector.
Criteria for selection of Whizzers
We expect Whizzers to have four basic (i.e. mandatory) things to start with:-
- Smartphone (Android-based),
- Driving License,
- Vehicle RC.
Whizzers should have basic conversational skills in English, Hindi and Telugu (as we are debuting our services in Telangana).
Training for Whizzers
Whizzers will be trained as part of our on-boarding process. The training will include the following aspects:
- Familiarity with the driver app
- Understanding of the company’s core values and principles
- Company’s expectations from Whizzer community & code-of-conduct
- problem resolution & exception handling etc.
Before we make the Whizzer “live” we test them by giving them a sample (yet real) order to fulfill.
Whizzers will be the vital link between Whizzy and patrons. Their understanding of our expectations and timely service will go a long way in providing better user experience to our customers.
