Karachi – April 10, 2018: TPL Maps, Pakistan’s first digital mapping solution continues to roll out innovative, user-driven capabilities on its next generation mobile app services. Recently the tech firm decided to work for the handicapped population of Pakistan by integrating wheelchair access points in its TPL Maps application to commemorate ‘World Health Day’.

In its initial stage the service will be launched in the major cities of Pakistan: Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad while more access points in different cities will be added to the service in due time. The digital mapping service will mark 60 hospitals and shopping malls, along with other renowned places with wheelchair accessibility on the application, in a bid to make life easier for the physically impaired citizens.

Regarding the initiative, Ms. Anika Effendi, Group Head External Relations & CSR at TPL Corp said, “Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) remains at the heart of everything we do at the company. We give utmost priority towards the dignity for our employees and the stakeholders at large.

“Keeping this in mind, the TPL Maps team took this brilliant initiative in order to add value to people’s lives, recognizing the needs of others and making the app useful for the physically challenged in Pakistan. I take deep pride in this initiative taken by the company and look forward to the team and other businesses to follow the same direction, thus making Pakistan a better place to live in.” she added.
