Ola’s TaxiforSure acquisition for $200 mn was waiting to happen

. Why would consumers, who tap the Ola app for booking a taxi and do not find one at their convenience, not go to a competitor like Meru or Uber instead of TFS? The point is two apps, separate cab services would mean the merged entity loses business to competitors. The merger needs to develop synergies and root out duplication in operations. Some manpower rightsizing may also be in orde #Meru Cabs #Ola Cabs #TaxiForSure #Uber
