How to start passenger transportation business & beat Uber?
Say, you’re eager to launch an app-based transport business — and consequently reshape the whole mobility industry in Uganda. Where to start?
To start a tech-driven transportation company, you, first of all, need these three components:
Entrepreneurial spirit plus a growth mindset
Functional booking apps for Android (the majority of Ugandans are Android users) and iOS
Reliable dispatch software and business management tech.
Be more than just Uber-like software with these features
What are the features you’ll have in your Uber-like software and applications? Based on feedback from our 200+ clients in more than 60 countries, we’ve developed all the features vital for a ride-hailing app.
Clear pricing your clients will love
One of the reasons people prefer app-based ride-hailing apps (Uber-like software) to traditional taxis is transparent pricing. Applications made by Onde feature clear trip cost estimations your customers will adore. Any additional fees or taxes, change in rates during rush hours? Clients will see it. Drivers will see it. No more conflicts about trip prices, ever.
Geolocation leaving no space for errors
Traditional taxis are known for driving roundabouts to increase the price of the trip. Uber-like software by Onde always chooses the optimal route, counting in traffic, costs, and many other factors.
Our unique geolocation services can always find the exact location where a passenger is. No more need for a driver to call passengers asking for details. This geolocation service works flawlessly from any device, even when the internet connection is weak.
Multiple payment options for you to grow revenues
A smart way for an innovative transport business to attract more clients is to allow as many payment options as possible.
Using the Onde Uber-like software, you decide how the clients may pay. Cashless payments (by card and mobile) on the Onde system are powered and safeguarded by the most reliable payment gateways, like Stripe and Checkout. Cashless payments drop straight on the company’s bank account, creating an impressive turnover for your transport business.
Intelligent driver queue to keep drivers active
Most companies working with Uber-like software do hire drivers to work for trip commissions. You set the rules here — you can easily set driver working plans that are the most profitable for your company. The system will calculate and automatically extract the fares you’ve set from drivers’ accounts.
But how to keep your drivers highly motivated? Onde intelligent driver queue is here to help! A one-of-a-kind algorithm for driver engagement distributes orders fairly factoring distance to the pick-up point, wait times, and even driver rating.
40+ service types to diversify and grow
Not ready to compete with Uber right away? No worries, you still can start a successful transportation company in Uganda! Try conquering the market with different service types — think of delivery, bike-sharing, zero-emissions transportation…
Onde Uber-like software allows you to introduce new service types at ease. There are more than 40 service types to choose from, and you can always request your own one — we’re always up for something new.
