Taxi Booking App
The customer is looking for an outsourcing provider to build a taxi booking app that works on both iOS and Android. They want the app to provide greater transparency in fare pricing and make cab hiring faster and more efficient.
Our customer approached us with an innovative idea for a taxi booking app. They were looking for an Outsourcing provider who could not only build the app from the ground up, but also ensure it worked across different mobile platforms including iOS and Android. They wanted greater transparency and faster and effective cab hiring.
Greater Transparency – Most manually hired cabs give a lot of unwanted problems and unnecessary troubles to passengers. For instance, their fare pricing is not customer-friendly. Our customer wanted to ensure that the app would bring in better transparency while hiring a cab.
Faster and Efficient Cab Hiring – Sometimes it gets too difficult to find a cab just when a person needs it the most. Inconsistency in availability of manually hired cabs is a major problem people face at the time of urgency. On the other hand, drivers also find it hard to find customers when they are idle. The customer wanted the app to alleviate the troubles of both customers and drivers by providing an interactive and easy-to-use medium for booking taxis.
We developed the app in Codeigniter. This ensured the app could be installed and run efficiently in smartphones running different OS platforms like iOS and Android. This app is for drivers and riders. Tight integration with Google Maps which allows the software to track the exact location of the driver and continuously send live tracking information to the rider. Cab booking with multiple options of from basic to premier. SOS call option that connects to the local emergency number. Secure online payment options via card, cash or wallet. Rating and booking history details that can be checked anytime. Drivers get to check the amount of earnings while the admin gets to add, manage and track all details of car types, drivers, verifications, rides, payments with detailed reports.
