JERUSALEM, Israel, 08-Apr-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — Weride, a new international taxi application focusing on shared travel and day-to-day travel is launching in Spain and Israel. What makes us different than other taxi applications like Uber and Cabify? Our focus is on student drivers!
For the first time as a business model in Israel and abroad, Weride also enables students to easily turn their vehicles into transportation services and enjoy income supplements, allowing them the flexibility to work between classes and studying and over weekends to make extra money. If a student would like to be a Weride driver but doesn’t have access to their own vehicle, they can contact Hertz and receive a vehicle under preferred conditions.
For the first time in the taxi field, as part of the new Weride service, payment will be deposited in the driver’s account immediately upon completion of the trip. What a game-changer for students who need access to immediate income!
The Weride application will launch in Israel and Spain this month. The app can be easily downloaded on the App Store and Google Play Store, for free of course. The application offers the user an accessible taxi service at the touch of a button. The user can choose to order a regular taxi driver or, alternatively, a private driver, who are students only. An incredible way to support our hard-working students. The service will operate throughout the day and night, all days of the week. Passengers can download the Weride app to their mobile phone, choose their taxi option and in just a few minutes a driver will arrive and take him to his destination.
Passengers will be able to choose between getting a fixed price or using the meter, which will calculate the price based on the distance of the trip. The application offers a variety of payment solutions, including PayPal, credit card payment or cash. The passenger’s experience in ordering a taxi through the app is simple and may not seem like anything special, except for the fact that the driver will collect the passenger as a private driver in his personal car. This is similar to the Uber service abroad.
Weride has declared that on average, travel prices will be tens of percentage points lower than the taxi prices in competing applications.
The passenger has many innovative options on the app, including choosing to travel either by professional taxi or a private student driver, the availability of readily accessible taxis, as well as the ability to view a photograph of the driver and his details, as well as the route of the taxi or private vehicle.
One of the most innovative aspects of Weride is the ability to order a taxi using a sophisticated voice IVR system, allowing the blind to just as easily order themselves a safe and reliable taxi.
Moshe Yaakobi, Owner and CEO of Weride: “I am happy and proud to present the innovative application that will bring about change in Israel and abroad. Our main idea is to concentrate all the services needed to turn an attractive idea into a cash-generating application under one roof – a feasibility study, business model development, application development and updating, marketing, sales promotion and customer service.”
“In 2018, our goal is to reach about 2000 drivers, who pay the company 5% + VAT per month of the total trip. We believe that the station management software, together with the meter’s approval, will be an essential and important component of the company’s revenues in Israel. Our goal is to penetrate the Israeli market and in the very near future to expand overseas. The application already supports seven international languages in the first stage.”
In addition, Weride provides a solution for business customers by providing a username and password. The business customer can enter the company’s website and order a taxi from there, with a view of the driver’s data and picture,
and the ability to produce almost any report he needs.
The services are provided by a team of experts who have experience in programming and digital marketing, experienced programmers, content marketers in social media and digital marketing experts.
Weride offers a multi-system that does not have any competitors – an app, a counter and a station manager.
In addition, it offers a unique application with many advantages that its competitors do not have, such as the ability to call a taxi by speaking (suitable for the blind), the ability to call an accessible taxi and the ability to respond by private cars in countries where the drivers are students.
