I'm sorry but I don't even know what skills are necessary to do this project. I have a client that is very interested in getting an app which would be used by Taxi Drivers and Riders and I am looking for someone to do the project. I need some quotes and an estimated time frame to complete the job. What we want is as follows:
Objective: This app will connect the fares (passenger) to a taxi by using their
electronic devices which include, I phone, Android, PC, I Pad etc…
Functionality from the Customer stand point. (Custom utilities)
a. Customer downloads the app for free to their device.
b. The app enters the customer’s phone and name automatically then gives
them the option to fill in the pick up address. (Every pick up) the app design
coding is designed to fill this information accordingly.
c. This information goes to the web site/data base where drivers can view
from their phones or PC
d. Once a driver checks to pick the customer up, a message is sent to the
customer with a picture and the name of the driver.
e. Customer pays the driver the meter amount.
f. The customer section is supposed to be simplified as possible i.e. even a
completely intoxicated customer can order a taxi
Functionality from the Driver stand point (Database driven functionality)
<<Probably both data house Built into the App and dynamic built into the web.
a. Drivers create a profile that will include, Photo, name, city they are
operating in and driver ID from their taxi license.
b. Once a driver logs in, he/she is able to view the data base that contains the
available customers needing taxi service in their city. Information visible is
just the customers name and the zip code.(at first)
c. Drivers are required to pay $1 for every pick up and $50 service fee every
d. When the driver clicks the pick up button $1 comes out of their account
automatically then the rest of the information becomes visible to the driver
i.e. the pick up address and phone number.
e. Once the driver clicks pick up, he/she is logged out for 15 minutes and
cannot pick up another fare until that 15 minutes time lapses unless he/she
has a scheduled future fare.
f. The $50 service fee comes out every 1st of the month automatically. There
is no contract and drivers can opt out any time. If the service fee is not paid
then the driver can not access the database/web site.
g. At sign up this app should be able to link driver’s forms of payment to the
company’s bank account by letting them provide this information.
h. Also drivers have the option of buying pickup credit.
This app will be convenient for the customer in a way it has never been
before and will reduce the waiting time for a taxi. Taxis will be readily
available and always close to the customer since they will be all over the
city and the customers will benefit from this system and the system will
increase the driver’s revenue.
