Challenges & Solutions

The Challenge –

Whenever a rider selects pick-up and drop-off location, the system automatically calculates and sends estimated fare to the user. But, in many cases, one destination may have different routes. So, calculating the fare estimation based on the selected destination route and sending it to the rider was a little bit challenging task.

Our Solution –

To overcome this crucial challenge, our team of professional developers employed smart usage of Location Manager to come up with fare distance calculator.

The Challenge –

An app that allows clients to select the driver as per their preference. To give the better experience, whenever a customer enters their location, their request is allocated to the nearby drivers based on their location. To fetch nearby drivers by tracking rider’s entered location was challenging for our team.

Our Solution –

This was a bit tricky since we also needed to take user’s preferences into consideration. That is why, the Siddhi Infosoft’s professional developer coded their heart out to create a custom API which was integrated into the app to handle this challenge.

The Challenge –

In this competitive era, user-experience is must and for the same purpose client needed an app with a user-friendly interface featuring a simple design and easy to complete booking process in few clicks.

Our Solution –

To tackle this challenge, our team of experienced designers took the responsibility to deliver an attractive yet approachable design while developers ensured user experience doesn’t leave anything to be desired.

The Challenge –

One of the more stiff challenges for our developers was handling notifications. If passenger is looking for any ride and if a car is available either taxi, economy, business or any other in nearby location, a popup will notify the user and he/she can easily identify the car.

Our Solution –

To cater to the client’s need, our developers used smart logic on web services and got this done employing their programming knowledge and experience.
