(Business in Cameroon) - Being informed, in real time, of the earliest departure for all coach companies linking the two capitals of the country. Or remotely purchase your ticket through your mobile telephone or tablet, get detailed information on the different departures in travel agencies, bus occupancy rates, etc. These are some of the information provided by the application itravel, developed by a Cameroonian start-up.

Thanks to the originality of this invention, the start-up has integrated the Orange Fab programme, set up by the Cameroonian subsidiary of the telecoms group Orange, and which consists in supporting and fast-tracking the development of start-ups, to turn them into viable and competitive companies.

According to the management of the start-up, itravel was well received by travel agencies. Ad posters highlighting the qualities of itravel are even visible in the halls of some coach companies. But, we learned, the management of these companies are unfortunately being very reticent when it comes to paying for the services offered by the start-up.
