Olacabs has launched its Windows application which will allow users to book a cab with one touch on their Windows phones. The Windows app launch follows the success of Ola’s Android and iPhone apps.
With the Olacabs app for Windows, iPhone and Android, customers can book the nearest Olacab and track its movement towards them with a one-touch interface on their phones. 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 to the customer on a map.
Ola’s technology platform also provides a boost to the business for cab drivers as they are able to get customers faster through efficient management of taxi time due to technologies like GPS, constant traffic alerts and real-time demand estimation. Incidentally, operations inside the car are managed through an android phone that acts as an in-car navigation device and fare meter.
