The ride-hailing service industry has seen some strong contenders such as Uber, Lyft, and others fighting their way to the top. This success story has prompted various ventures to get into the ride-hailing business to try their hand in the market.
What makes Uber one of the best ride-hailing ventures is its uncanny ability to tap into locations that required public transportation. According to recent statistics, the revenue acquired by the ride-hailing industry amounts to the US $157 Million in the US by 2019. The total number of users is expected to increase by another 1.2 million by the end of 2023. The top 5 places where ride-hailing industry generates the most revenue are the USA, China, India, Indonesia, and the United Kingdom.
The above statistics would have further cemented the idea of initiating a ride-hailing venture in the market. However, some features should be considered before starting a venture in the market.
Creating a profile for both the passenger and the driver is a must because both the parties need to view each other details.
This feature lets the passengers track their drivers’ location and vice versa. It also helps drivers to pick out the most feasible route with less traffic for easy drop-off besides automatically calculating the rate estimation of the trip.
Payment gateways are one of the prominent facets of any ride-hailing app. Integrating a wide range of payment options such as credit/debit cards, in-app wallet, cash, or any other options is of paramount importance to ease the passenger’s payment process for the ride.
The Uber clone app will be integrated with the commission collector feature that allows the admin to choose and set a commission billing cycle for the drivers. The driver can view his account balance, the total number of rides completed, the total amount of commission earned, etc.
God’s eye view
This feature allows the admin to overlook every business aspect right from the driver/passenger’s registration and payment process to location-based progress and heat map with ease.
The app will be equipped with powerful analytics that allows your admin to see where improvements can be made. Smart analytics can help you to keep track of total ride requests, booking sources, locations where demand is high, driver dispatch, and various reports.
Rating and Review system
This feature will allow passengers and drivers to rate and review the ride after it has been completed. The ratings will increase the driver’s rankings in the app.
Many other features can also be added to the Uber Clone app and make it stand apart from its counterparts. The right decision lies in the understanding of the on-demand market and the customer base. A reputed clone app development company can make that happen without any hassles and under your budget.
