The What? Why? Where? of Taxi Booking Scripts

By | January 6, 2016

Be it getting to the airport in time or to the saloon a few blocks down the street, ‘booking a cab’ is one of those phrases that has found a sure special place and if Oxford Dictionaries were to name “phrases of the year”; it would certainly top that list.

And this wasn’t really the same a few years back. Getting a cab meant to get to the street and wave for one (flag a taxi) or book one for later with a phone call to the cab company. Both highly depended on the availability and getting the attention of the driver or the dispatcher. Thanks to ‘Uber’ which finally put an end to this with its mobile application. Need a cab right now? Click on the app, mention your location and ride away. Need one for later, mention the time and book one for later. No more ‘put-on-hold’ calls. Just a few clicks at the app chilling from your couch and get a cab at your doorstep anytime you require.

An app for free that makes cab bookings more convenient. Why would users make a pass on that? Uber was soon recognized across the globe and had millions of regular users right from the initial stages of its launch. And as the solo leader in the taxi booking industry, Uber still reins the taxi industry and with several freelance taxi drivers and smaller taxi companies registering with it, Uber’s fleet only grew larger every week. And if there can be one company with an app, so can more.

Several taxi companies started the quest for uber taxi booking script so they could have an app for their business as well. After all it depends on being readily available for customers and if a taxi company does just that, it is time to put the word out. With the demand on the rise, developers soon took to replicating Uber taxi booking script and the ones who managed to do this quicker; got real larger shares of the pie.

But not all scripts work perfect and with service providers requiring unique features that would highlight their app, the quest for a script that would suit all requirements is still on. So how exactly does a taxi script bring a business more customers and in turn more revenue? It’s really the taxi that does the job. Well there is no denying this. But your business might be providing luxury cars as cabs or taxis at cheaper rates. Doesn’t really mean your business would flourish. There has to be a system that would help your business known to potential customers. With phone calls being outdated, an app serves as the best platform.

But with quite a number of scripts available online, finding the best one that would suit any taxi business is more than just back breaking – the business depends on it. A simple glitch is more than enough for customers to prefer the competitors’ business; forever.
