Rocky Application Launch Celebration!

Rocky Project Team

It’s been a “Rocky Ride!”

At Krave Mart we believe our rider force is the backbone of our business. Having said this;  we are proud to announce the launch of our very own Rider application named “ROCKY”.

Meet ZOHAIB SHAIKH – Senior Manager Tech at Krave Mart & few of our ROCKY project team members; Asad, Zain, Waqas, Zohaib, Ibtesam, Aaqash, Hamza Faqi & Sami.

Rocky Project Tech Team at Krave Mart

Zohaib leading the Tech has seen it all from the scratch till the final launch of the ROCKY App! Here’s his super short take on the project;

“Using technology for social good, we created Rocky Rider App that not only optimizes delivery operations but also benefits delivery riders in terms of safety, earnings, flexibility, and work-life balance.”  

This project not only will contribute towards better customer experience with the rider front being seamless as a result of the application, but also will empower the KRAVE MART Rider Community, known as; ROCK STARS!

Vision Behind This Unique Application

It was to mitigate the pain points our riders face delivering orders everyday. 

To name a few;

  • Offering a work life balance for the riders! They can choose a shift that suits their lifestyle.  
  • Help riders save on petrol expense by assigning routes near to their location covering less distance, yet more orders. 
  • Providing access to their performance to justify their incentives & perks. 
  • Independent assessment of their performance to improve.  
  • Building trust with a transparent dashboard having their day to day activities displayed. 
  • Predefined routes relieving the stress to plan multiple orders assigned at once.
  • Real time tracking & updating of the orders assigned in real time.   

What’s intriguing is that all our riders are tech savvy. Adapting to an application dedicated to ease their order management has not been challenging so far. The application actively supports budget friendly Android smartphones with a sleek engineered design supporting low RAM(s) & runs smooth on multiple owned & third party servers. 

Here are a few words by our ROCKY App’s Product Lead

“I walked into Krave Mart as a Product Manager when the basic version of the ROCKY App was already running. From then, it took us just three months to build the complete App along with the order delivery feature. Building the App & launching it across all our dark stores was seamless, thanks to the cross-functional collaboration between tech, product and the operations team. The launch is only the first phase, the second phase now begins where we are constantly bringing new features and improving the ROCKY App whilst keeping our riders experience as top priority.”

Left to Right – Hammad Bawany; CPO ( Chief Product Officer) & Umair Arshad; Product Manager ROCKY App at Krave Mart

In order to ensure our Rockstar Riders are well-equipped and provide the best experience to our customers, we made sure we prioritize this as much as we could.  Hence, our teams flew to every nook & corner where Krave Mart dark stores existed & helped implement the ROCKY APP in person with LIVE TRAINING SESSIONS.

TECH SENSE!

Our tech warriors are tough but grounded. Understanding the struggles a rider may face, they went far & beyond asking their wish lists to further keep improvising the application for a common man. 

The existing design is a result of multiple trial runs, literally on road (considering it was an application for the riders). 

Such applications usually have a blueprint of an international study. However, our engineers understood that an application in Pakistan genuinely needed a demographic structure at the backend which suited our local weather & road conditions. New technologies backing this were implemented by our tech champs to make the ROCKY APP special!

Rocky App accommodates Krave Riders across Karachi, Lahore & Rawalpindi. Looks like it’s time to celebrate! 

ROCKY App launch celebration cake!

Our tech teams got an edge! Development of ROCKY has been an incredible experience, It created a bridge connecting multiple departments & gave us a chance to face technological challenges which helped us grow. 

Special thanks to HAMMAD BAWANY; Co-Founder & CPO ( Chief Product Officer) at Krave Mart for his endless support!

Stay tuned for more news & updates, till then, keep KRAVING!

Beyond The Brown Bag! Women’s Day Special

It’s that time of the month… you know the drill? Right?!

The infamous bag of shame carries a stigma that we feel the urge to address this Women’s Day. Can you guess which bag we’re referring to? It’s a regular menstrual essential; a sanitary pad that subliminally screams guilt; surprisingly even in this day and age.

Tackling the taboo around menstruation is easier said than done. Every time a man or a woman shops for sanitary pads, the monkey mind works asking for it to be covered in a brown bag. If you miss following the protocol, hate trolls are what you deserve.

Is this fair?! NOT AT ALL! Since when has nature been looked down upon? It’s about time we recognize the monthly period flow for what it really is! A natural process women need to go through that prepares and separates them from men. 

So, let’s normalize by setting free the sanitary pad pack from the brown bag. Speaking openly on such a sensitive topic can help educating young women on basic hygiene around periods. You can do your part too, & help millions of girls ease their menstrual cycle and feel empowered.

The most minor period malfunctions such as; 

  • a red spot on the pants,
  • leaving out a sanitary pad pack on the dressing,
  • asking for a tampon at the shop counter or, 
  • a sudden advertisement on a period pad brand,


is unfortunately tagged as an elephant in the room. It’s about time we break the wheel & think BEYOND THE BROWN BAG! Let’s support the movement, and embrace femininity as we should know it! 

We hope our yearning of turning the idea of the BROWN BAG‘s unrealistic idea into a more authentic one succeeds. 

Drop your thoughts in the comments section below, we’d love to hear you out Kravers!
