OLA In India Takes On Uber With OLA Play

 

Last year, Uber’s fierce rival Ola, launched an in-ride entertainment platform called Ola Play in India. The aim of this innovative feature is to make long rides more entertaining and luxurious. Ola partnered with Qualcomm to build interactive devices mounted in cars. This device called Ola Play, boasts touch-screen hardware with two consoles –one for the driver and another for the passenger. Passengers can sync their phones with the device to listen to music and also watch all they want online.

This seems like a response to Uber’s partnership with Spotify that allows passengers play their playlists on Spotify as they travel. Granted, Uber’s innovation isn’t as integrating as Ola’s Ola Play but it seems Uber is not completely off track. It doesn’t seem like this move on the part of Ola is a real game changer as people will always look out for the best price especially in an emerging market like India.

The rideshare company that can offer the basic needs at the most affordable price will surely take the cake. India is a huge market and Uber and Ola are presently fighting a turf war with Ola currently winning in the country. Ola currently controls over 60 percent of the Indian market and growing. Can this success be attributed to the in-ride entertainment? Obviously not.

Ola is a home grown rival while Uber is a global phenomenon. It is only fair that Ola will enjoy more patronage since it launched in Mumbai 3 years before Uber came into the scene.

However, Uber boasts a higher presence globally than Ola and is more concerned in growing it’s footprint across the world. In a show of power, Uber recently launched in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh on the 22nd of November, 2016. |

Ola PlayWith presence in over 400 cities worldwide, the congested city of Bangladesh is the next city to experience the revolution that Uber introduces to the transport sector. Uber has teamed up with Bangladesh’s largest mobile operator, Grameenphone to reach Dhaka’s 18 million population. Unlike in most American cities, Uber will accept cash payments as well as card payments. This is a strategy that Uber initiates in emerging markets in order to reach the percentage of unbanked populace.

Uber will continue to face fierce rivalry from competitors. It’s up to the rideshare giant to devise new and innovative ways to keep customers satisfied.

More About Volkswagen’s Rideshare Company- MOIA

 

Uber’s success story has elicited different responses from automakers. Some car companies reacted by throwing their weight behind Uber’s competitors while others launched their own ride-hailing service to compete with Uber in the rideshare industry.

In May of 2016, auto giant Toyota announced that it would be entering a partnership with Uber. Uber and Toyota would work on creating new leasing options that would allow Uber drivers lease vehicles with Toyota Financial Services providing financing to these MOIAdrivers.  General Motors founded its own car-sharing service, Maven. The company also plowed half a billion dollars into Uber’s rival company – Lyft. Another rideshare startup- Gett, was a recipient of $300 million investment from automaker Volkswagen. Now, Volkswagen is all set to launch a mobility service called MOIA. The auto giant officially launched MOIA in December of 2016.

 

More About MOIA

MOIA was launched as an independent company of the Volkswagen Group. The company was created to target transportation issues in urban cities. According to the company’s website, MOIA “will develop and offer an extensive portfolio of on-demand mobility services that make the lives of people living in urban areas better, cleaner and safer.”

MOIA is tasked with “the in-house development of IT-based on-demand offerings such as ridehailing and ridepooling services” and will be based in Berlin, Hamburg and Helsinki. The company hopes to redefine the face of mobility services and become an industry leader by 2025

Blueprint

In the face of existing competitors like Uber and Lyft, it is apparent that Volkswagen has a lot of hurdles to cross. Uber is continually seeking ways of meeting passenger needs. The company is known for its aggressive stance while dominating new territories. Not only that, Uber tailors services to match markets. A typical example is the UberMOTO in Bangladesh. This motorcycle service will help commuters navigate through the city’s famous traffic in record time.

So, how does MOIA hope to achieve set targets?

  • specifically investing in digital startups
  • collaborating with cities
  • Partnering with established transport providers.

The aim of the new company is to develop and offer an extensive portfolio of on-demand mobility services. This can clearly be achieved by aligning forces with the parties mentioned above. By investing 300 million dollars in the cab hailing service- Gett, it is apparent that MOIA is well on its way to providing mobility for all. In its media page, MOIA’s CEO Ole Harms stated that, “Together with Gett we are pursuing a clearly defined expansion strategy in Europe – only recently, three of the Group’s brands launched the first joint initiative with attractive vehicle packages for Gett drivers in the growth market of Moscow. Further markets will follow soon.”

 

MOIA is pursuing creating a pooling business like Uber and just like Uber, on-demand services will be carried out via an app.

We are looking forward to more innovations from MOIA.

Save Fuel: Cut Your Expenses As An Uber Driver

 

The goal is to earn money on your own schedule as an Uber driver. However, the road to success is marred by many expenses that comes with the job. In this post, our guest writer Caroline Bird shares creative tips to help Uber drivers save fuel and lower their expenses. Enjoy.

 

How much you earn as an Uber driver is entirely up to you. The hours you put in, money saving strategies, the city you are driving in and other factors determine how much you take home at the end of the day. Most drivers rarely make more than average wage. Surges are also quite difficult to come by because the roads are saturated with Ubers. It also does not help that tippers are as rare as hens’ teeth.

 

In this post, we will examine a few tips to help you save money by conserving fuel. Before we explore ways to save fuel, there are a couple of practices that you need to manage as an Uber driver.  With proper management, you can actually save more money.

 

Firstly, ration the amount of gums, water, candies, etc that you offer passengers. Do not leave the whole pack of candies out in the open. We understand that you need to keep up your ratings so you can earn those extra bonuses Uber offers top drivers. However, if you keep all the refreshments out in the open, passengers who don’t really need it will just grab it and stuff it in their bags. You can offer the passenger water during the trip. The offer might be turned down; this way, you actually give refreshments to people who actually need it.

Save Fuel

Secondly, you should download map data for offline use to save phone data. Remember, “a penny saved, is a penny earned.”

 

Now, here is our list of things that you can do or avoid to save fuel and lower your expenses as an Uber driver:

 

Service Regularly

 

A regularly serviced vehicle performs as well as the manufacturer intended. However, if you maintain your car poorly, you are likely to encounter problems such as clogged filters, defects in emission controls system, and poor oil performance. These factors will not only cost you money in repair fees but also cause an increase in fuel consumption.

 

Check Tire Pressure

 

Driving with under-inflated tires both endangers your life and increases the rolling resistance between the road and the tires. Consequentially, the engine works harder to overcome the extra drag. The extra pressure on the engine affects the fuel economy negatively.

Cut Down Your Drag

 

Fixings such as bike racks, roof rails, and roof boxes increase the aerodynamic draft by changing the airflow over the vehicle. Also, opening windows and sunroofs increase air drag. The resultant resistance means that the car needs extra force to cut through the air. Thus, the engine is more heavily taxed which affects its frugality levels.

 

Avoid Stop-Start Habits

 

Your driving tendencies also affect your car’s fuel consumption. Every time you slam on the brakes, energy is lost as heat. Therefore, the engine has to manufacture some more power to accelerate. You need to learn how to predict the road conditions to be able to slow down gently. Save fuel and provide a more enjoyable ride for your passengers.

 

Use High-Quality Fuels

 

Your engine will perform more efficiently when fed with high-quality fuel. The improved fuel combustion lowers emissions and harnesses fuel consumption. You can even achieve up to 15 miles more per tank if you consider ethanol-based alternatives.

 

Avoid Excessive Idling

 

It does not hurt to inquire how much time a client is likely to take. If you realize that you might have to wait for more than a couple of minutes, you are better off switching off your engine to save fuel.

 

Turn Off Your Air-conditioning When It Isn’t Necessary

 

If you don’t have any passenger riding with you, turn off the air-conditioning if it’s not too hot out to save fuel. Each time you use your air-conditioning unit, its compressor pump sucks from the engine’s energy. The additional work causes the engine to require more energy which results in more fuel consumption.

 

Change Down A Gear

 

Do not strain the engine when driving up a steep plane. Instead, you should keep the speed up and use a lower gear level.

 

Ease off the Accelerator

 

Steady acceleration reduces fuel consumption. It is recommended to change gear at 2500 rpm and 2000 rpm for petrol and diesel engines respectively.

 

Empty Your Trunk

 

Each requesting Uber rider needs to know that you do not carry beyond your car’s capacity. Also, do not leave home with unnecessary cargo in your trunk. The extra weight will cost you more in fuel.

Auxiliary Cords An Uber Driver Needs

 

As an Uber driver, having the right items in your vehicle is one way to keep riders happy and get those tips. When a customer is satisfied with your service, they are generally generous with tips. Besides tips, a satisfied rider can give you the much desired 5 star ratings. So, what are these items you should have in your vehicle? An Uber driver needs to have items in his car that will improve passenger experience. This is not a head scratcher. Imagine yourself as a passenger on a ride and then list out certain things you feel will make for a more enjoyable ride. To get you started, see a few items below:

  • Phone charger
  • Auxiliary cords
  • Hand sanitizer or wipes
  • Candy or chewing gum
  • Tipping box (some customers have opined they prefer to just drop a few bucks in a tipping jar rather than hand over cash to a driver)
  • Vomit bag

 

This list is by no means exhaustive. You can get started with these items or eliminate a couple. In this post, we will review top auxiliary cords an Uber driver needs for his vehicle

Our Opinion

The “Shop Your Way” reward program offers a lot of perks as indicated above but there are a couple of downsides. It would have been nice if this program had been extended to  Uber drivers and riders outside of the United States: Even if not the exact promo, maybe something similar for other Uber drivers and riders who would like to make some extra money. Also, adding more partner options where Uber riders and drivers can redeem points will make the promo more attractive.

That being said, this is still a great way to save/earn money which you can spend on items of your choice (sold by some of the popular retail giants). All you have to do is take the time to register on both platforms (Uber and Shop Your Way) if you haven’t already done that. For those that have Uber and Shop Your Way accounts, it will take a few minutes to link your accounts.

Book A Ride Now Or Later With Moovn

 

Moovn is a rideshare application that enables users book a driver on demand or in advance. The web-based booking platform enables you to request a ride at the comfort of your desktop, tablet or mobile phone. The Moovn app was created by Godwin Gabriel who comes from a non-tech background. He took up the challenge of teaching himself how to code and in nine months, he had the skill required to develop the Moovn app. Moovn first launched in Seattle in 2015 and joined the bandwagon of rideshare companies operating in America.

This app bears some similarities with rideshare giant, Uber. Users can book a car now or schedule for later. Drivers also get to control their schedule. This is where the distinct similarities between the two companies end. Moovn was launched to fill the void left by companies like Uber and Lyft. It’s no debate that Uber drivers have expressed displeasure about the percentage of commission Uber takes off fares. This has been a bone of contention between Uber and drivers since Uber increased its commission from 20 percent to even 30 percent over the years. Moovn in a bid to attract drivers onto its platform takes just 15percent commission. Also, passengers will enjoy rides all around the clock with no fear of surge pricing.

moovn

These developments largely contribute to the growth of the black-owned ride-hailing service. In some parts of the world where Moovn operates, it customizes some of the products offered in the foreign market by allowing ridesharing through other means like motorcycles and Rickshaws in addition to cars.

 

How to use the Moovn App

  • Download and setup account on the Moovn app
  • Book a vehicle now or schedule for later
  • Confirm your request

 

For Drivers

Driving for Moovn is a great way to earn money on your own schedule just like Uber. See below basic driver requirements to become a driver on the Moovn platform:

  • No DUI and/or drug related driving violations in the last 7 years.
  • No driving related convictions in the last 7 years (such as felonies involving a vehicle or hit and runs).
  • No criminal record and able to consent and pass a full background check.
  • Ability to drive 75+ miles to and from destinations if needed.

Uber Rival – Namma Tygr App To Launch In India

 

Uber and Ola in India are currently enjoying successes as the top players in the taxi industry. This has always been a source of displeasure for taxi drivers and other taxi companies. Uber and Ola drivers are not subjected to the same regulations as traditional drivers. Despite this, most Uber and Ola drivers are unhappy as they believe the rideshare giants are taking too much off their earnings. Uber drivers have requested for more benefits and less commission taken off their earnings. This saw former Uber and Ola drivers’ band together to launch a new app called Namma Tygr app that hopes to provide cheaper alternatives to commuters who have been ripped off by other cab aggregators.

The company is backed by Former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy and will be called Namma Tygr app formerly HDK Cabs. The app launched on the 31st of October, 2017.  The company is registered as ‘Huli Technologies started by the former Uber, TaxiForSure and Ola (UTO) Drivers and Owners Association. The association partnered with Savetur Digital Private Limited to launch and operate the Namma Tygr app. Namma Tygr App

Namma Tygr app founders have stated it will claim a commission of 12% for every ride. Drivers will also enjoy great benefits like accidental and vehicle insurance. The company claims that over 8,000 drivers have applied and undergone verification. There will be no shared service like the UberPOOL offered by Uber.

The News Minute blog quoted the company saying “After Bengaluru, we will start our operations in Mysuru and then Mangaluru. We plan to launch all over India in the coming years”. “We expect that drivers currently attached with existing cab aggregators will join us. We are giving better facilities to the drivers at a very small percentage of commission”.

 

Drivers are being trained in batches of 15-20 at the company’s headquarters in Indira Nagar. They are being given training on app installation, downloading and other service operations. Drivers will also enjoy Rs 2 lakh in medical insurance cover and there will be 10 emergency-patrol vehicles to support both drivers and customers all around the clock.

 

Passengers Benefits

Surge pricing has always been a bone of contention between rideshare companies and passengers. The comoany has promised that passengers will enjoy fixed prices with no surge pricing or any other hidden fees.

The Namma Tygr App will offer services in Mumbai, Kolkata, Ranchi and Indore. The company hopes to see more Uber and Ola drivers signup with the service. Passengers can request a mini hatchback option at Rs 12.50 per km and a sports sedan utility vehicle option at Rs 18.50 per km.

How Uber Stays Ahead of the Competition Using GPS and Feedback

 

Uber Technologies ,without doubt,  has positively disrupted the world of transportation with it’s revolutionary use of data and technology. To shed more light on this, our guest blogger JBandtheRoad will be discussing the strides that the rideshare giant has made in the sharing economy.

Present in 670 cities across 83 countries, Uber was estimated to be worth $70 billion in 2017. The numbers are impressive, considering that the company first began operations in 2010. This means that in the past 7 years, Uber has expanded its service line to include the likes of UberX, UberPool, and the more recent; UberEats. These days, the company is working on self-driving cars for deployment in the near future.

A pioneer in the shared economy, Uber truly disrupted the transportation industry with its promise of convenience. However, underneath its easy-to-use surface is a web of valuable data. It’s often been said that data is the new oil of the 21st century. What truly set Uber apart is how it chose to use that data, particularly when it comes to GPS and Customer Feedback.

 

Uber and the power of data

The company’s first deck, which CEO and co-founder Garrett Camp shared online, reveals that the launching of the ride-sharing and -hailing service coincided with the emergence of GPS technology embedded into smartphones. This makes it possible for riders to specify pick-up and drop-off points; allows the app to find the nearest available drivers; and then for the drivers themselves to navigate from point A to B. A huge benefit of the integration of this technology is that it addressed the widespread concerns over traditional modes of point-to-point transport by: cutting response times, guaranteeing pick-up, and slashing costs.

On the other hand, the addition of a customer feedback option, which allows drivers and riders to rate each other right after a trip, opened up a whole new era in what has been dubbed as a “feedback culture”. Not only does the feedback loop allow the company to quickly spot and deal with problem drivers, it also protects drivers from potentially abusive or aggressive customers. In particular, this places a valuable incentive for drivers to deliver a pleasant, safe, clean, and prompt service to their passengers. Behavioral scientist Peter Kriss explains that the element of customer feedback elevates user experience. Thus leveraging on satisfied customers who in turn become their own word-of-mouth marketing machine. Uber

 

Data, Technology and Regulations

Needless to say, the effectiveness of those two technologies have not gone unnoticed, particularly among regulatory bodies seeking to create safer and more reliable commercial vehicle systems. More innovations are hitting the road to help carriers monitor driver behavior and improve road safety for all.

For instance, black boxes are well known for their role in tracking and storing data in airplane operations for the purposes of safety and security. In 2008, they began to be used by taxi drivers in South Korea, as mandated by local governments. In the years since the implementation, the country saw a decrease in taxi-related traffic accidents by 17.7%, with death and injury tolls falling by 18.9% and 19.1%, respectively.

A similar measure was signed into law in the United States last 2012, this time to monitor the country’s vital and enormous trucking industry. Called Electronic On Board Recorders (EOBRs), these black boxes are designed to track data on everything from GPS coordinates and average speed to cruise control and seatbelt use. The devices also allow for recreation of a vehicle’s path and driver behavior before, during, and after accidents.

More recently, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration took a step further in trying to address driver exhaustion among commercial fleets. To do so, it mandated that all carriers replace paper logs that record driver hours with Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), which must fit into vehicles through an app, by the end of 2017. Fleetmatics explains that the ELD aims to reduce human error caused by accidental or deliberate over-driving, as is the case when drivers exceed their daily maximum Hours of Service (HoS). The ELD then makes the information on the vehicles’ journeys and drivers’ HoS available to drivers, fleet operators, and roadside inspectors.

Currently, vehicles registered with Uber follow more or less the same regulations respective to the country of operation.

A lot has changed in the past seven years since Uber began its services. In that short span of time, the company has managed to use data in novel and unprecedented ways, which also promoted convenience, quality service, and road safety. It won’t be surprising to see even more innovations in the world of transportation over the next few years.
