India's Cab Aggregator Startup, Ola Cabs Unveils Version 2.0 of Olacabs App
Bangalore: In a move meant to make intra-city travel easier for daily commuters, India’s leading aggregator of cabs, Olacabs, has introduced easy single-tap options for multiple bookings, advance booking and even a built-in cab rate card, in the new version of the Olacabs app. The app allows the user to tap on a ‘Ride now’ button in order to beckon a cab closest to him, removing the uncertainty faced by point-to-point commuters over availability of a cab just in the nick of time and a ‘Ride later’ button to schedule a future pickup without the hassle of going through a call centre. Available for Android and iOS, the new Olacabs app incorporates existing user feedback. In order to popularize the app amongst existing and new users, the company has come up with an incentive based referral system where users can refer friends to book a ride using the Olacabs app.
Advanced / Multiple pickups:
Until now, the Olacabs app only enabled customers to book a cab for his / her current pickup location. With this update, customers get the benefit of booking not only from their current location but from any other desired location as well. Also, for bookings to be made over an hour or more in advance, customers can specify the date and time of the pickup in addition to a location of their choice.
