When Uber was introduced in the market about a decade back, it did not just bring about a new way to book taxis for the customers, but brought into this world a whole new concept: that of the On Demand Services. While Uber in itself was only an application that could empower users to book taxis instantly from their smart phones, it did turn into a foundation that would facilitate many different types of services to be able to digitize themselves and become available with an app.
The Uber for X is such a concept. In today’s blog post, we will try to understand a little more about how the Uber for X platform works, what are the various services that can be encompassed in it and how can one profit from this business. Let us get started.
What is Uber for X?
Uber for X is an application model that allows users to hire service providers to come and deliver high end quality services right at the doorstep of their customers.
This app ensures that more and more people can make sure that they do not have to go out looking for an expert service provider when the need arises but have them all listed at one place and accessible instantly.
Instead of making only one kind of service available at all times, the Uber for X app ensures that users can access up to 60 services right from a single application. To understand this better, let us take an example and expound on it.
Let us look at how to use the Uber app for taxi booking and then use that to explain how it works for on demand service. So, when a user has to book a taxi, they download and log in to their Uber taxi app, after which they can enter their pick up and drop location to see a list of all the available cars and drivers in the radius of action. They choose the taxi and it reaches their pick up point instantly.
Likewise, when a user wants to hire a service provider (let us take a beautician for example); they can download the app and log in to it. They can select the beauty services option and from the category, select the specific service that they are looking for. For example, hair styling, or manicure services.
Once they select that, they will be able to see a list of all the beauticians in and around their area offering those services. They will also be able to see the charges that the beauticians wants to levy particularly for the service and the star rating that previous users may have given to this beautician.
Based on these informational snippets, the user can choose the beautician they want to book and the app will automatically send them a job request. The beautician is free to accept or reject the request based on their availability.
IF the beautician rejects the request, the app notifies the user so that they can select someone else. The same process is repeated till the job is accepted. Once the job is accepted, the beautician is notified of the details of the address and the customers so that they can reach the designated address at the given time and deliver the service that has been requested.
This same model works across any kind of service. For example, one could hire an on demand plumber, on demand electrician, on demand snow removal professional, on demand house maid, on demand cleaning services, on demand moving services, on demand tow truck, on demand tutor, on demand dog walker and so on and so forth.
This app gives your customers access to over 60 different kinds of services that can be hired instantly through the use of their smart phone app. This is perhaps the biggest reason for the popularity of the Uber for X service provider app.
Creating your own business
Many entrepreneurs wonder how they can wet their beak in this profitable business venture. Well, it all begins with a simple app. Honestly; it is not all that simple. An app that allows users to hire people in the real time, gives map locations, enables chat features and so on and so forth is a complicated one to build.
This is why; smart entrepreneurs opt to buy a readymade on demand Uber for X service provider app rather than building one from scratch. This option is a lot more cost effective and time efficient. If you can find an Uber for X app built by a reputed on demand white label mobile app development company, then you will be able to enter the market and get your app launched in the Google Play store and the iOS app store in less than a week’s time.
However, when doing so, make sure that you have paid special attention to the fact that you have tested it before you actually invest in it. These applications are in a ready state so it should not be very difficult for you to test it thoroughly before paying up for it.
Also, ensure that the company that you purchase the app from offers you the source code of the Uber for X app for free so that you can enjoy complete ownership of the application.
