Before the era of app based taxi booking apps development came in, people only had three options: hail a taxi, call a friendly driver to pick you up or call a taxi booking agency. Taxi booking agencies were prominent in the pre-Uber era.
A taxi agency with dozens of telecom operators who will manage an endless stream of calls were a common place particularly in cities with an airport. Every caller will tell his address, the operator will fill in the address in the taxi software in front of him, and press ‘Dispatch’ on the right of a ‘Available’ driver.
It was hell of a job for teleoperators managing so many calls a day and the agencies managing so many employees. That changed when auto dispatcher came in. The operators now only had to enter the address in the software and the software was supposed to dispatch a taxi to his location.
The online booking portals further streamlined the process. However, in the pre-cloud era, people had to install complicated, heavy on resource computer software on their private servers to make the auto dispatching possible. On top of that, software would have an expiry date of like two years after that they must buy it again. Software would update from time-to-time frequently leading to downtime.
That was a quite a headache for taxi businesses with so many things to manage on top of their business priorities. With emergence of cloud computing came SaaS and IaaS. The software, the server, the database, everything moved to the cloud. The software was now accessible from a web browser. With rise of mobility solutions, on smartphones too. A transition that led to on-demand dispatch apps and restaurant mobility solutions.
Today, we have entered the era of on-demand dispatch apps. Taxi industry was the starting point. Now on-demand dispatch apps are part of many industries from retail to restaurant, healthcare to logistics. In fact, on-demand is the easiest way to deliver a service or product to a customer. Uptil now, on-demand dispatch software development was hard to realize owing to technological limitations and lack of smartphones back then.
With everything in place, every business must move to an on-demand dispatch module.
