Dear Taxi Drivers of Jordan!
It is good to see you protesting for your rights in your motherland. There is a better solution for you to resolve this problem. As rightly said by Jordan’s General Director of Ministry of Transport, Mr. Anmar Khasawneh about this protest and a possible solution for this issue in his interview to The Jordan Times?
“It is not realistic or even applicable […]. The ‘better and more realistic solution’ was for cab drivers to have an app of their own […] which would put them at a ‘fair level of competition’ with ride-hailing apps.”
– Anmar Khasawneh
General Director of Ministry of Transport, Jordan
Yes, he is right! Keep reading to know why?
The technology’s part becomes crucial in the on-demand transportation industry. Uber and Careem could attain this big success simply by using taxi-booking and taxi-dispatching applications. It is true that ride-hailing apps have destroyed the traditional taxi business. Like you, other taxi drivers/companies across the globe were affected and lost their business very badly. But, they resolved the issue by developing or buying a similar kind of taxi management solution. It is not possible for everyone to develop a software, but you can buy it from some tech companies as there are ready-made (tailor-made) taxi dispatch software available in the market. Following are a few features and applications that a taxi management software will have to do your taxi business in Jordan with ease:
Admin panel: For taxi companies to manage vehicles and drivers, and stay on track of bookings, dispatches, payments, cancellations, and so on
Passenger app: For passengers to send you taxi request, track assigned vehicles and drivers (GPS-integrated system), and make payments online
Driver app: For drivers to receive notification on cab requests; find customer location, feasible route, and drop location (GPS tracking system); stay connected with admin, and many more.
Dispatcher app (optional): For dispatcher to dispatch vehicles
The above-said apps/modules should be enriched with a few must-have features such as payment gateways, GPS-enabled tracking system, wallet system, feedback option, and an emergency button that can simplify dispatching-related tasks and help you attain an exceptional growth and expected in your taxi business.
