The launch of Uber is what gave birth to the process where you tap a button and get a ride. However before this app was launched, taxis were usually summoned in the traditional way i.e. either by way of thumbing for one on the motorway or calling a taxi firm for one. Both methods did not guarantee you a taxi. In fact, there was no surety whether you would get a taxi or not. If you did, you had no clue whether the car was of a pristine condition and if the driver was experienced and professional in his trade.
When Uber was launched all the above issues were addressed such that a passenger could get a taxi wherever he was, whenever he wanted, in a choice of his vehicle and a driver he felt he could trust. Not only that, he would now be sure that he would get a taxi at the time he wanted.
How Does The Taxi App Technology Work?
Whenever you want to go somewhere, all you need to do is log into the app, choose your pickup location, and then tap Request. Enter your destination and the type of car you want to request for your ride. You can also request an estimated fare for your ride at this point.
Once you have put in all the request details, the app automatically sends across a request to all the drivers in a particular radius (pre set by the admin). The drivers have to accept the request within the stipulated time. Now, whichever driver accepts the request gets the job.
On accepting the request the driver gets the details of his pick up location and the Rider gets the details of the Car’s make and model, License plate number, driver’s name and his star rating.
You can check the list of available drivers, their cars as well as driver ratings and reviews. You will be able to see the driver profile, photo, model and make of the car, as well as its license plate number. This way you will get a guarantee that you are entering the right car.
Internal Text Chat
A very important thing required to conduct a smooth ride is communication. But people aren’t always comfortable in picking up the phone and placing a call to the Driver or even the Driver. There may be security issues or privacy issues. This is why an Internal Text Chat proves to be very helpful. The driver and the rider can both discuss and check what the exact location is for pick up and for the drop or if there is any other detail that needs discussing.
CHOICE OF PAYMENT
When you reach your destination you have a choice to pay either by card or cash. This is a very important feature. People are used to getting the best solutions to make their lives easier. Today, cash payment is not the only solution. People like to have cashless and hassle-free transactions. They prefer card payments and other cashless mediums such as an “In App Wallet”.
RATINGS AND FEEDBACK
You can now provide feedback about your driver and ride and rate the overall service delivery. These ratings help to give better customer service in future. Giving a feedback makes it a much reliable platform for other users. Both Users, as well as Drivers, can check the how people have rated them from their previous experiences.
A RIDE FOR EVERY EVENT AND BUDGET
Budget ride or luxurious, shopping or the opera you have a choice of cars and budget for wherever you are going. If you require a car that facilitates handicapped people, that can arrange too. Putting in this feature gives your users many options to choose from. Anyone can now book a cab easily.
The app requires the drivers to verify themselves. They must provide the documents needed as per the government regulations to ensure that they can register in the app. Any driver can only offer rides if they have registered in the app. The other important thing is mobile verification through an OTP. This process happens for both the Rider as well as the Driver. When they try to register into the app, they have to enter their mobile number. An OTP is sent across to them. Once they feed in the OTP their profile will be successfully created on the app.
