How the Idea Stuck
our Client

MindMaster Technologies, the client being a provider of many technological solutions in the social sector, was keen to change the monopolistic taxi business scenario in India. The answer was to create a mobile app that inclined for the cause of drivers without hurting the commuters. It led to the idea behind PIU, which integrates an annual subscription model instead of the commission per ride methodology. A brilliant business model was created, keeping the driver at the center of business architecture.

How our client
found Mindster for
his unique app

Our client wanted to develop a taxi dispatch system based on the annual subscription model. Client requirements presented the following challenges :

What our client
sought?

As the customer wanted a swift technical solution within few months product delivery without compromising on the quality was a real challenge for our team.

01

Time Constraint

Being an ambitious and determined startup ready to take on big players like Uber and Ola, our client wanted a wide area of operation. The challenge was to expand the framework to fit the whole pan-Indian taxi network that, too, within a matter of weeks.

02

Scalability

the client expected a full range of services with deep roots in the whole state of Kerala. It presented multi-dimensional challenges at stakeholder level viz. driver, driver-cum owners, passengers, and local agents.

03

Multi-service compatibility

The client requirement to incorporate every possible digital means to ease passenger’s life presented another challenge.

The Solution

The technical requirements of the app fell within our expertise. Our team of developers took up the project with enthusiasm. Most of the requirements fit into the framework which we had developed from our long experience.

Mindster developed a compact platform to serve the multiple stakeholders in the taxi industry. The solution works on iOS, Android, and web platforms. It provides service throughout the state of Kerala, both rural and urban. Mindster addressed the challenges in the following way:

We handed over the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) within nine weeks. Mindster team’s domain expertise in the taxi platform helped to fit the requirements into our already available customizable framework, which expedited the app development process.

The client expected a system that could handle about 100,000 drivers within a short period of six months. It required intelligent management of loads. The intense load from the interplay of the driver, passenger, and other data, etc. was handled by using multiple servers.

To accrue to all stakeholders, our team proposed a distinctive app solution with three apps, one for the driver, one for passengers and one for consultants. It took care of the whole range of services that the customer expected through the app.

Payment modules, including net banking, Unified Payments Interface (UPI), credit cards, debit cards, etc. were made available. Wallet facility with pay-in and pay-out feature is also provided along with the cash option.

Our system handled the challenge of the simultaneous launch of the taxi services in multiple cities entirely in spite of the geographical and market challenges.
