Why We Started OSUM Cabs
Having extensive experience in Process and Systems Analysis, Reengineering, Customer Service, and Operations, Henry Sorensen and Vinod Jayakeerthi saw that the current taxi aggregate model was not designed in such a way to remain effective, for all parties. Therefore, it became necessary to create a simple business model that not only provides better compensation to the drivers, but transforms the taxi aggregation industry into a sustainable commodity.

Unrest around the world surrounding existing ride aggregators highlighted the need to develop a product that improved the ride experience, while restoring both the dignity and paycheck back to the drivers. The vision behind Osum Cab is that a winning transportation service is one where everyone wins, rather than the aggregator winning at the expense of their drivers. Osum Cab’s approach is to use the best practices of typical ride sharing services, without the punative elements inflicted upon the drivers. When driving for Osum Cab, you keep more of what you earn, you drive when you want, and we let you run your business the way you wish to run it. To the passengers of Osum Cab, having a happy driver improves the ride experience, as the drivers are ranked in our system not on how much they earn, but on how happy they make you as the passenger.
Dr. Sorensen has a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and a Master’s in Business Administration.
