There are 59,803,311 smartphone users in the Philippines — and this number is growing. The market for apps like Uber enabling on-demand transportation is huge. Is the transport business profitable? Yes, extremely.

Apps like Uber are known for providing users mobility and freedom that they seek. However, establishing a profitable transportation business is more than just copying Uber’s model. It is more about knowing the local context and the exact needs of the market.
Onde powers mobility entrepreneurs in more than 60 countries. We know for sure that local businesses know better than multinationals how to make transportation in their country perfect.
Taxi app development made stressless
The success of apps like Uber is based on providing customers and drivers with functional, easy-to-use mobile applications. At Onde, we have a lot of expertise in developing branded booking applications.
Our taxi app developers know exactly what features are a must for your business to become a market leader. We build the apps, test it, brand it, and even optimize it for app store placement. We also submit the applications to the stores and regularly release enhancing updates.
At the end of the development cycle, you get four apps like Uber (Customer & Driver for iOS and Android) — without any stress normally associated with taxi app development. No more exhausting negotiations or prioritizing features. Concentrate on your business — Onde does the tech part of it.
Talking about features, there are some that are a must if you’re aiming to make your app-powered transport business profitable.
Variety of payment options
Allowing passengers and drivers to pay by card is exactly what makes apps like Uber so convenient. However, the bigger the variety of payment options, the more clients will be attracted to the app.
To enable card payments anywhere in the world, we’ve integrated reliable payment gateways (such as Stripe and PayU), and we are constantly working on new ones. All card payments drop directly on your company’s bank account, ensuring a solid cash flow — evidence of your business success.
Precise geolocation services
Geolocation services are a must to avoid any type of confusion as to finding addresses and building the routes. Onde’s unique smart geolocation knows exactly where the passenger is, and always creates the best route to this place. This works for every place in the world, even in a desert, on any mobile device.
Clear fees and rates
Affordable and transparent fares are the key factor of the success apps like Uber achieve. Unlike traditional taxis, booking apps show precise rates before the ride starts. This is the reason why many people prefer apps like Uber to any other kind of transportation.
The prices in Onde-powered apps are always calculated for the most convenient routes. Any additional fees, such as extra taxes or fees for complementary services are clearly stated in the interface. You define the fares and prices, and Onde makes it comprehensible for your clients.
Multiple service types availability
Apps like Uber tend to expand their market share by providing more service types rather than launching in new cities. Business strategies of Didi, Gojek or Gett show how efficient this method is.
Onde software allows launching new service types easily. There are more than 40 service types available at the moment, from delivery to roadside assistance. You can also request a custom service type.
