Ola, India’s most popular mobile app for personal transportation today announced an exclusive partnership with OnePlus to provide an on-demand experience of the latter’s ‘2016 Flagship Killer model – OnePlus 2,’ for users of the Ola app. Through this partnership, Ola will make OnePlus 2 phones available for its millions of customers to experience first hand. This globally first of its kind partnership between OnePlus and Ola signifies innovative ways that brands adopt to engage with customers using newer platforms. Earlier last month, Ola went app-only and this large base of mobile-first customers now get an opportunity to experience the most talked about smartphone of 2015 from the very same app they trust, for all their mobility needs.
OnePlus 2 will be available for an on-demand experience on the Ola app this month in 6 major cities across India including Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata. Ola customers can request a free OnePlus 2 experience at their doorstep, just like they would request a cab, by clicking on the ‘OnePlus 2’ icon that will be live on Ola’s app during these days. Users can register on the Ola app to have a chance to get OnePlus invites and freebies. Additionally, a select few customers who request an experience on the Ola app stand a chance to win coveted OnePlus 2 invites.
In Bangalore and Chennai, this initiative will be available on 17th and 18th of August, in Hyderabad and Mumbai on 21st and 22nd and in Kolkata and Delhi on 25th and 26th of August. OnePlus and Ola will also have unique social media campaigns for customers to win the invites.
Speaking on this partnership, Sudarshan Gangrade, Vice-President – Marketing at Ola said “This is the first time ever, that an on-demand platform in the country is bringing an exclusive experience for its users, with the new OnePlus 2. Users can request a OnePlus 2 experience at their doorstep within minutes, straight from their Ola app, with the same ease of booking a cab with one touch. We are excited about this partnership and look forward to our users experiencing the OnePlus 2 before anyone else does in the country.”
Vikas Agarwal, General Manager – India, OnePlus said, “At OnePlus, it has been our constant endeavor to innovate our marketing strategy to further enhance the user experience, and this collaboration is another step in that direction.
