US-based ride hailing firm Uber has launched a redesigned Uber Fleet app for its fleet-owners in India. The Uber Fleet app is a complete end-to-end experience with greater usability, enhanced technology and new features that allows Fleet owners to better manage their vehicles and drivers. The company said in a statement that the new app was built in partnership with Fleet owners and has been made with a simple and elegant design.
Since rolling out the app during the pilot phase, Uber has been closely monitoring how people use the app, and more importantly, how this translates to the Fleet ownersâ business performance. It has observed that regular users of the app have an increased operational efficiency, meaning they are able to reduce their vehicle downtime and complete more trips as a result.
âFleet owners enable more drivers to get behind the wheel and earn a livelihood using the Uber App. Todayâs launch of our redesigned Uber Fleet app is the combination of extensive research with owners, world class technology, and local knowledge to help fleets manage and grow their business,â said Daniel Danker, Head of Driver Product, Uber.
Some of the new features of the fleet app include a live map, which helps easily track the status and monitor the safety of Driver partners and vehicles in real-time. There is a âFleet Performanceâ feature where the fleet owner can view fares, trips and quality metrics for the entire fleet in one simple view.
There is also a âDriver Partner Paymentsâ where one can get details on all driver partner transactions such as weekly earnings, expenses and payouts. The Fleet Match features allows fleet owners to browse profiles and contact Driver partners who are ready to drive.
