  • Navigation

    It is critical that the driver and the passenger are aware of each other’s location at the time of the booking. Apart from that, the map feature lets them reach the destination by offering step by step navigation. The navigation can also help authorities find people in case of emergencies.

    Your app should ensure that the passengers are safe and happy with the drivers and that the drivers aren’t ill-treated by the passengers. This is why you must add the review feature to make sure that your app users can review and rate each other. The drivers can also rate users and that information can help you create a safe working environment for them.

    Push Notification feature makes it possible to send out messages to all your app users with just a single tap. This means the passenger gets a notification when the driver accepts the booking, is nearby, and when he reaches the pick-up location!

  • App Analytics

    Simply creating an app and expecting it to work fabulously does not work. With App Analytics feature, you would be able to gauge which elements of your app are doing well and which ones need improvement. It will help you judge your customer satisfaction, improve your driving infrastructure and much more.
