27 million urban Indians use a Smartphone, more than 56% of them access internet on their phones (which is higher than the US, mind you!) and 500,000+ apps on the Android and the iTunes stores each- evidence enough that we have a heavy ‘app’-etite.
The Olacabs mobile app is India’s first and one of the world’s few ‘pick-me-up’ apps that gets a cab to you on the tap of a finger. In operational cities (Mum, Blr & Del), the map on your app will show available cars around you. As you tap on ‘pick me up,’ the nearest cab is allotted to you and the driver details are texted over SMS instantly. On the map, you can see your cab coming towards you in real-time! We incentivize you with a flat 10% discount on your net bill when you book through the app!
Wonder why? We are hell bent on changing the way India moves around. Freedom from long call centre queues, communicating driving directions and following up on where your cab is- these are things that we want to kill. It’s time to be Independent!
