The immense support from our customers and awards like these give us confidence that our efforts are being recognized and appreciated.”
Olacabs is known for integrating technologies like GPS, real time traffic alerts and demand analysis to create a seamless car rental experience for its customers. Ola has also developed India’s first mobile applicationthat enables customers to book and track a cab till it reaches them, in real time. The app provides users instantaneous confirmation of booking along with necessary details like the name of the cab driver and vehicle number, distance from the user’s location as well as expected time taken to reach the location. The app also tracks and shows the real time movement of the cab from its location to the location of the customer, on a map.
Recently, the company also launched its On-Demand Cab Tracker SMS facility to offer the same level of predictability to customers who do not book through Ola’s app.On booking an Ola cab through any medium, the customer is provided the usual details and a phone number. With a simple missed call to this number, the customer gets an SMS that tells him how far away the cab is, and how long it will take to reach him. This service is free for all customers.
