Continuing to aggressively strengthen its control over the Indian ride-hailing ecosystem, Uber has today debuted its fleet management app ‘UberFLEET’ for registered partners in India. The service has been launched in all 29 cities across the country.
This application has been designed with the goal of providing fleet managers with a set of tools to efficiently operate their business and overall productivity. It will make the process of managing drivers in their fleet a breeze by allowing to keep a check on their activity and reducing their downtime.
Commenting on the launch, Apurva Dalal, Head of Engineering, Uber India, says,
UberFLEET allows fleet partners with driver positioning, helping drivers achieve maximum performance and overall, run their fleets more efficiently.
As for the features, the handy UberFLEET app includes a live map where the managers can track the driver’s current location in real-time, see the drop-off location for the ongoing ride, and also the location where they went offline. It also includes a ‘driver dashboard’ which provides partners with the ability to track trips, online hours logged, earnings (both cash and digital wallets ones), rating, cancellation details, and a lot more. This data is available on a daily as well as weekly basis.
In addition, the managers can also view the logs of when a driver is online and when it goes offline to manage their performance. They can see a breakdown of earnings and day-to-day activity and trip details for each driver to make the payment process easier for partners. This also gives you a detailed insight into your earnings as well.
This app release comes on the heels of the ride-hailing giant introducing a new and redesigned interface for the consumer-facing ‘primary’ app. The company has recently also debuted its ‘dial an Uber’ service across all operational cities in the country. This will further intensify its competition with the homegrown rival Ola, who’s already released a fleet management app ‘Ola Operator’ with similar features back in June.
