Uber's successful model opens up another level of disruptive opportunities in the development of similar applications for your business.
Uber has revolutionized the taxi industry by taking the best step in allowing anyone to register their own car as a service by providing native Android and iOS mobile apps developed as tools, thus creating a team of drivers. On the other hand, they also provide excellent car services at the doorstep of an intending user with a simple click on their mobile app.
Users can’t resist using Uber as their primary driving service provider with its simple booking process. The reservation process in the applications consists of booking the trip, entering the pick-up point and the destination.
The application is made in such a way that when a user wants to book a ride, it automatically searches the user's location and searches for available drivers in the closest possible radius. In addition, the Uber application shows the estimated fare and the time to drive to the destination. Once the driver confirms the trip and reaches the user, the Uber trip begins.
There is a navigation module that helps the driver to steer towards the destination without facing any ambiguity on the road. At the end of the trip, the user automatically receives the notification about the total fare and can settle it using various payment options offered by Uber.
That's the complete hands-on package you need to dominate markets like Uber.
The Uber case is more complicated because there are two applications in one: for drivers and for passengers. For this reason, its functions are divided into two and have two types of visualizations.
This is the most important part. Some applications only accept payment in cash. However, Uber started only by accepting card payments, and for some, this was an inconvenient move. It is for this reason that it is preferable to have both types of payment so that the same user can choose how they want to pay for the service. In the same way, the driver must have the option to process the payment and thus both are happy with the trip.
Each driver has an assessment that, depending on how the trip has turned out, the passenger can give it 5 stars down. The idea of these features is to analyze the quality of service that is being provided and, if there was a problem, solve it to optimize future trips that all your customers will receive.
This feature helps both the passenger and the driver. The person driving will know which route to take (unless the passenger indicates another route of their choice) to reach their destination and whoever took the taxi knows exactly which route is being taken. In addition, there is the option to share the journey with a friend or family member. In this way, the passenger feels safer and knows that someone they trust is watching the vehicle.
When ordering a taxi, the application must use GPS to locate which of all the vehicles is closer. For both the passenger and the driver, you must indicate how far you are so that the passenger knows how long it will take the vehicle to pick it up and the driver knows the direction in which he is going. It is important that this function is precise so that there are no problems such as the driver taking longer than estimated or so that the vehicle does not reach a point that is not indicated.
Virtually all mobile applications request this type of information as it is an easier way to customize the functions. In the case of Uber, it is necessary for the driver to have the passenger's data to know who he is picking up. And for the passenger, it provides greater confidence to know the data of the vehicle and the person who drives it. Many times, problems have arisen due to this issue since claims are made either for misconduct by the driver or for the loss of an object. It is a necessary feature so that the same company can solve the problem and customers are happy with the service.
This is a factor that is present in all jobs. Applications are not created in the simple blink of an eye. When developing mobile applications, the developer must analyze the features, in addition to taking care of the design for the user's navigability. This is to ensure that the final result is to the client's liking. Hyperlink InfoSystem will keep you informed on how long it would require to help you develop an excellent taxi app. Development of taxi apps similar to Uber and Lyft will cost around $5,000 to $16,000 depending on the features to include.
As a customer, it is good to balance these types of factors so that they do not give up a hare. It is good to always receive a report on how progress is going and that the developer meets deadlines to know how the project is progressing.
