From Parveen Saeed of KhanaGhar, a social worker; to Ghina Shamsi, a practicing doctor; and Humaira Anjum, an entrepreneur with a small business; Ufone has highlighted the achievements of these extraordinary women whose lives can serve as a motivation to other men and women of Pakistan.

These shinning stars became brand ambassadors for Ufone and promoted the use of technology and how it made a difference in their lives. To continue this tradition of introducing ordinary Pakistanis and their exceptional achievements in various walks of life, Ufone has introduced Malik Zia ur Rehman in a bloggers event in Lahore on 19 June, 2017.
In his brief but remarkable journey, Zia ur Rehman has not only provided exceptional services to his customers but he has also become a source of living for the families of his eight workers who have been associated with him for quite a long time. “I have a clientele base of more than 100 organizations which are on board with my rent-a-car service”, Zia said. “Most of my clients are employed at either international NGOs or international Embassies.”
“I have a small company and only 18 cars to meet requirements of our huge customer base, which we manage to do quite well by the grace of Allah.”
The quality of services he provides is fundamental to his business and this is managed by them through rapid communication between the central office, drivers of the cars and customers. Technology he can rely and depend on is of utmost importance.
“With several service orders from various customers in hand, dealing with employees or solving financial matters, are all done in tight schedules. My secretary, which is my mobile phone, helps me manage this by providing me unswerving and consistent services. In my
business, constant communication is the key especially when you have to take important and snap decisions” Zia shares.
“Due to the facility of trustworthy mobile phone service, I can handle all queries of our customers including booking of rides, dealing with drivers and supervising maintenance of cars.”
Mr Zia set up a business in early 90’s and it grew tremendously over the period of one and half decade. The number of service orders and assets he owned were limited at that time and could be managed through a landline service phone. As his business grew, he needed to instantaneously connect with his customers, workers.
“Ufone is now working with the talented and enterprising Zia ur Rehman as its brand ambassador. Zia, 39 years old, has successfully been running a rent-a-car service for the past five years in Rawalpindi and Islamabad with a growing customers and investors’ base. Ufone continues to work with exceptional people of Pakistan who are leaving their mark in the society by demonstrating unwavering commitment to entrepreneurship and attaining success through aptitude and sheer hard work. We focus on a unique approach to their campaigns and uses the platform to commend these efforts of outwardly common people who are a source of inspiration to millions of Pakistanis,” Ufone PR Head Amir Pasha said. — Pak Destiny
