Talking about travel, within the city there has been a boom of cab apps that have made life easy especially considering the hectic schedule of a person’s life. When a person wants to travel either to the office or may be on a personal trip, the source of relief for transport is the cab service.
Having said that, there are quite a few to name on the top priority from the viewpoint of riders. In this row we have a lot of apps that serve as point of contact between riders and drivers. To name some would be Uber, Ola, Gett and so on and so forth.
As a logistics development company linked to the business of cab service, the aspect to be kept in mind is various factors including the safety of drivers. The relationship with the drivers is significant for the reason that it keeps the business going smooth.
One such app which is quite popular and has been ranked to be great by riders is the Uber App. There is a whole team which makes it successful, however, the drivers’ contribution being of great importance has brought the company to its success.

The driver has an option to select the ride through the Uber app. Usually, the driver waits for the rider who logs into the app and finds the nearby rider. As per this feature the driver can send his location to the riders who are searching for a ride and accept the ride accordingly, which in turn enables the driver to collate the rides on return as well. Here the driver gets the ride through a notification which is sent to the rider. It is better to have the usage of this feature to be limited to avoid misuse of it.

Request for direct Uber Driver’s application
A driver can ask for a direct driver’s application from Uber so that he can provide a ride to a rider without the rider having the application of a taxi. In this manner customer base is increased and the driver contributes to both his and company’s revenue in general. Customers also get an option to get the ride without worrying about the app being installed or not in their phone. It is a benefit for the driver as he would know the ride discounts, offers and much more. The end point is that the driver needs to achieve his target whether through the rides he gets from rider’s app or vice versa.
Reward Points for deeds of Drivers
The driver has an option of giving donation to a cause specified and which can be selected by the former. The donation can be done by the driver from his salary as an amount is deducted as per the driver’s instruction. Also the ratings to be rated by the riders for the rides they take could be included in the app. It will also enable the riders to opt the best drivers when the rides are booked based on the ratings given on the previous ride. This in turn gives reward points to the drivers.
Working Hours to be Apt
The working hours have to be logical since the driver’s performance depends on it. A good sleep routine, Good health gives the drivers the motivation to work more and earn more. Employees or drivers will have a responsible approach towards their work structure when they are considered to be a priority of the company.
Driver Preference Option
The rider can list the drivers preferred by adding them to the list of preference or recommend a driver to the other riders. This can be viewed by other riders in the list and thereby the driver can be selected based on the preference as provided by the other riders.
Reports of Drivers
A report has to be developed so that the routing done by the driver on a daily basis can be gauged and updated through the report to the company as well as the driver. This report is based on the taxi app information and can be used to identify the working hours and task execution of the driver.
Quotes stated by the driver
The driver can quote a particular amount to the company for the distance covered and based on this there could be a carpool done by the riders. This will enable the company to provide the driver with a profitable quote and deliver the amount as expected by the driver. In this way both the company in terms of getting the customers and the driver are benefited.
Record the destination:
The rider can save the destination for future reference. For example, if the rider takes a ride to the office and back home on a daily basis, then the destination can be saved in the app so that whenever a ride is booked the rider can easily go to the destination and book the ride. In this way time is saved to enter the address of pick up or drop accordingly. This feature on the app is time saving.
The App developed for a rider helps to earn as an individual for the driver and as a company who develops it. On the whole both of the aspects in the business of Fleet Management, the transport as well as the driver get the work done with ease. Working towards a development of the mobile app with the required features including the chat and call option provided in the app is an added advantage to increase business. The best usage of the Uber app being developed is for the ongoing regular travelers and the app has proved to be a boon to them.
