Uber is becoming increasingly popular and widespread which is also causing massive disruption to Addison Lee, Europe’s largest minicab operator. As a result, for intensifying competition, the latter company has also developed a unique application in its software that has already gained enormous possibility for success.
Many CEOs of Uber’s competitors have reported that Uber is gaining a tremendous amount of popularity due to the emergence of smartphones; as a result such popularity and wide scale application have proven themselves to be highly disruptive for the existent businesses, such as Addison Lee that was previously the only private minicab operator in Britain.
The already existing companies are designing their own applications for keeping up with such latest trends. Addison Lee has recently designed a new feature called “Snooze” that allows users of the application to adjust the time for an already booked cab. This is similar to pressing “snooze” on your alarm clock in the morning for sleeping a bit longer.
Potential travelers can readjust the time of his/her already booked cab to arrive 15 minutes earlier or longer depending upon your need. By simply tapping the snooze button, you can ask your cabbie for picking you up at a later time in case an important meeting takes a longer time to end or a party that has suddenly turned more vivacious tempting you to stay for longer. Addison Lee’s latest feature may toughen competition for Uber.
This feature is going to be extremely useful as well as exciting. By including this feature, it will save time for both parties allowing the taxi drivers to make further trips helping them earn more and enables you to spend longer time with your beloved friends or family.
Even though this latest feature is going to bring about humongous popularity and feedback, Uber may still remain unscathed as potential customers can view all the possible drivers close-by and book them according to individual’s time requirement.
Uber’s next targets are business-persons and already hiring a sales team for “Uber for Business” for appealing their corporate customers. Read about Uber’s map making car here.
