SkyGold Taxi: Vehicle Aggregator Mobile Application
SkyGold Group, Zambia, collaborated with Softlabs for various requirements including Website Designing, Logo Designing, and GPS based Vehicle Aggregator Mobile Application Development.
Until recently, we all have faced Taxi booking hassles at least once in our lifetime. We are well aware of various undesired tasks we need to perform before we actually get seated in a Cab or Auto Rickshaw. Right from going down to the Taxi Rank, waiting for an empty cab ride in rush hour, waiting for hours in a stormy rain or scorching heat to find a driver who is willing to take us to our desired location, every situation we face hunting for a cab is a discomfort. Finding a ride exactly when we want, right outside our door willing to take us to our destination, felt like a dream come true. It may miraculously happen one blessed day but then that’s it, the same old story followed every passing day.
This is when Vehicle Aggregators came to our rescue. These companies made travel easier with the services they offered. However, there was no Vehicle Aggregator Service available in Zambia and SkyGold Group approached us to develop a GPS based Vehicle Aggregator Mobile Application to be implemented in Zambia.
