Read the Literature
Table of Contents
Not all of us love to read a lot of things, but when it is time for you to make an investment; you will be wise to keep a note of everything. Make sure that you read the website of the taxi app development company thoroughly. You have to be absolutely well versed in everything that they are saying including their deliverables and what they don’t offer.
We often make the mistake of “assuming” things when it comes to purchasing. When the time comes and we don’t get what we assumed we would, we get all upset and worried. We blame the company and end up in a terrible situation.
In order to avoid that, make sure that you take at least a day to take in all the information that is available on the website and sleep over it. You may have some doubts. Note them down and remember to discuss them when you speak with the company’s representatives.
Take a Demo
Most taxi app like Uber offer a free demo of the app for the customers to try. This means you can actually download a live version of the apps on your devices and test it. The best way to test it is by doing it on multiple devices.
Download the user app and the driver app both. Then take it for a live on road test. Get a look and feel of how the request is generated, how the invoice is raised, how the driver can see his reports, how the map feels like and more.
Take it in writing
After the demo, there is a high possibility that you will have lots of doubts and questions. Instead of taking these questions on a call, make sure that you have the answers for this over an email. An email is the most professional way of getting answers and also remains with you.
The company that has given you the mail will not be able to refute anything that they have given to you in writing, while calls may be ambiguous and vague. So, think of questions, draft them in a single mail and shoot it across. Save the answers for your future reference.
Make sure that you wire the money to a Company’s account with their name on it. Do not make payment to random personal accounts. Always ensure that you are making the payment in favor of the name of the Taxi App development company to be absolutely sure that you are not being coned. You can also try to make a payment using Paypal because it is the safest.
