    Opining on the partnership, Ashok Shastry, CEO & Co-founder, DriveU said, “At DriveU, our focus has always been on customer centricity throughout all of our product and service offerings. When we were exploring various agencies in the space, it was very apparent that OneSource also shared the same approach with their clients, regardless of the size of the organisation. It was an easy decision for us to make with OneSource, and I look forward to expanding our partnership in the future.”
