Enhancing the Taxi Business
Many taxi companies have automated their businesses by using taxi dispatch software. The primary reason behind this decision is that security and reach have improved because of the GPS technology used in this software.
The GPS technology is serving its purpose in many ways in the taxi dispatch platform. The applications that make up this system include the driver application, passenger application, and the admin panel. All these applications are made unique by using the services of the GPS technology.
How GPS Helps the Drivers?
The prominent feature of the attraction for its users present in the driver application is of getting jobs assigned based on the taxi location. If a taxi is situated anywhere near the passenger seeking it, then a driver will be notified of the situation. A driver can then accept the job as per his availability. Furthermore, a driver will get the pickup location of the passenger as well. It helps with dealing unnecessary delays due to the uncertainty of the path that should be followed to reach the passenger. All these facilitations use the technology of GPS.
How GPS Helps the Passengers?
The passenger application is also making use of this technology as it gives the passengers an option to trace their driver on the map unless he reaches the provided pickup location. It helps the passengers to stay updated with the driver. It further aids the passengers to share their ride tracker with their contacts who can track the ride at any time they want to. It ensures the security of the passengers. All these mentioned options are again made possible with the help of the GPS technology.
How GPS Helps the Business Owners?
The business owners of the taxi companies also require knowing about the money that a taxi is earning in a day and where the driver is at a specific time of the day? It is made possible by designing the admin panel. Through this, owners can keep a check on the drivers and the activities taking place including the feedback and ratings that the passengers and the drivers give about each other. The owners can also see the locations of the taxis using the dashboard of an admin panel. It ensures that the taxis do not get lost. Again, GPS technology is the one that is providing all these opportunities to the users of a taxi dispatch system.
