Morocco-based startup, DabaDoc, a service that allows people book doctors’ appointments online, has expanded to Algeria and Tunisia.
With the expansion, DabaDoc now supports over 2,000 doctors in the three countries.
Founded in 2014 by siblings Zineb and Driss Drissi Kaitouni, the platform features doctors in 72 different specialties across 50 cities, enabling thousands of patients to connect with doctors through the website.
According to Zineb, “We have seen a continuous improvement in conversion rates and returning users since the launch of DabaDoc.”
“Users realise the time saved and hassle avoided of booking a doctor appointment online. They help the platform grow by spreading the word around them and using the platform repeatedly.”
The startup looks to expanding into other markets in the next few months, while it will also be rolling out a subscription-based service for doctors on the platform.
Since inception, DabaDoc has gained recognition through a number of competitions. The startup took first place at the GIST competition in Casablanca, and was one of ten startups selected for the ArabNet Beirut competition in February 2014.
