Taxi service providers have been around for long. Long enough that people would find it almost impossible to go ahead with their daily activities without them. At just a wave a cab arrives at your footsteps and with a simple phone call users can book a cab for a later time as per their requirement. And since taxi companies are provide options for customers to choose from various types of cars for regular use, use in special occasions and luxury services, people have almost disregarded options for buying cars of their own.
As for entrepreneurs, this is such a business that is always on demand. Though vehicle purchase and other maintenance expenditures are always there, a dull business day is not something a taxi service business provides to the owner. And as in every business, there is never an easy way to grab money where there is more of it. As a business with great benefits, taxi companies do have greater competition. With ‘instant service’ becoming trend serving customers instantly at their request became priority to knocking out the competition.
The taxi provider Uber created quite a trend with its mobile application with which customers can request for a cab whenever required and from wherever they are. Not owning any taxis they run, Uber simply acted as a dispatcher or the service provider where their app connected customers to taxi business owners. All that customers had to do was simply login and request for a cab from wherever they are. The app notifies drivers near the customer’s location and also guides them there plus it offered both cash and online payment methods. Proving a great platform, Uber soon had a number of cab companies and individuals signing up at their app as drivers. Why will anyone pass over a service that facilitates taxi bookings from just their phones? No calls or messages. Mention the requirement and that’s pretty much it.
Ever since Uber step foot in the taxi business it did some serious damage to the whole lot of taxi companies and business owners soon realized why. And with the damage well in sight, they either had to enroll with Uber or draw out the curtains and shut down.
But with web and application developers creating Uber like web and app scripts and providing services to customize it, taxi business owners can skip the option to shut down and instead have a taxi booking app or web of their own and compete with Uber head-on. And the best benefit, even entrepreneurs with no cabs of their own can now start a taxi service business.
