The Easiest Way To Launch An On-Demand Solution

In several studies conducted this year, the rise of the on-demand industry is clearly evident. The market size rakes an income of about USD 57.6 billion from US customers on an average each year. By 2023, the on-demand food delivery market is projected to reach $161.74 Billion. These numbers are not lost on emerging and existing businesses, as everyone wants to become a part of the incoming wave where customers rely heavily on on-demand services like Uber, Dunzo, Rideshare, and others. But what is the main essence of establishing your own on-demand app?

Many organizations prefer to curate apps from scratch, there is a huge market for on-demand solutions today. Owed to the ease it brings to business operations, companies are keen to provide an application that skips out lengthy processes like beta testing, development, and recalibration. 

Businesses can save up on such operational costs by delegating the development aspects to a third party who can get the work done effectively. For instance, a company that seeks to create a digital presence requires an internal development team to build its website, web app, or application.  However, it becomes a whole lot more convenient to let a third-party on-demand app development provider have the job done using their tailored approach. Just implement a white-label solution to solve all your problems with a simple few clicks.

The question that arises in such situations is how does a company go about launching an on-demand solution? iView Labs has the answer for you! Let’s look into six ways that can help you launch an on-demand solution that can immediately cater to your client’s needs- minus the hassle.

Six Steps To The Easiest On-Demand Solutions Launch 

Conduct the Necessary Market Research

Today, the on-demand app and solutions market is one of the most lucrative avenues for businesses to delve into. Be it on-demand healthcare solutions, or delivery services, all of them are thriving due to the evolving consumer persona. Customer 2.0 puts convenience and ease of living above everything else. Hence, it is a good place to start your research to find ways that add to the comfort factor of your prospective and existing customers. For insight into what works and what isn’t working, save time by looking into your competitors. They can become a shining example for learning from others’ mistakes while refining your solution structure and concept in the early stages. From your preliminary research of the market and relevant industry, you’ll be able to form an informed decision regarding:

  1. Any gaps and voids in the demand-supply bridge
  2. The niche of your on-demand solution
  3. The projected growth of such solutions
  4. Consumer expectations and receptivity
  5. Features and Functionalities
  6. Your budget for solution development
  7. Deployment strategy and timeline

Your Definition of Success

For every brand, success is measured in a unique way. Sure, your numbers can showcase monetary gains, but today, success is quite multifaceted. It can be defined as the number of customers served over a particular timeline, or the number of leads you acquire. If you’re a service-based company, the key decision-makers may use metrics like the Key Performance Indicators mentioned below:

  1. Number of active users
  2. Gross Margin
  3. Burn Rate
  4. Conversion Rate
  5. Customer Acquisition Costs
  6. Consumer Lifetime Value
  7. Operational Costs to Revenue Ratio

It is imperative that these KPIs be defined early on in the process because they act as a yardstick to compare your monthly, quarterly, and annual growth. It will also help your teams collaborate in perfect sync to work towards these common goals. If you’re choosing a white-label partner for your on-demand app development solutions, conveying these success markers will help them tailor your app to perfection.

Go Cross-platform and Multi-version for Your App

Have you heard of the multi-channel approach for enhanced customer experience? In the present scenario, businesses need to approach customers at their level, which includes the channels they prefer to use the most. As per Statistica’s study on internet usage in  April 2022, we’ve crossed the five billion internet users mark worldwide. This makes up 63 percent of the global population, which is a huge market to cater to. Additionally, the number of global smartphone users today is  6.648 billion. 

If a business launches an on-demand solution only in a singular model, it is most likely to touch only a part of its ideal customer base. However, this can be changed if they choose to consider cross-platform integrations such as mobile-optimized web apps, desktop browser versions, and the app store. It improves your availability, thereby helping customers find you wherever they wish, from any device possible.

Get the Right Solution Partner On Board

One of the biggest tasks after research and choosing initial markers is to select the best possible technology partner. For white label solutions, organizations like iView Labs can help with end-to-end development, from inception to the launch and post-deployment. One of the best ways to hire an on-demand app development company is to book a demo with them to check your conceptual alignment with theirs. 

Not only can this approach save you the costs of hiring specific professionals, but provide greater assistance in terms of a tailored approach. Setting up the terms of use, social handles, web domain, and app store approvals all become relatively hassle-free when the professionals have your back. Since they take care of the testing, modification, updates, and debugging, launch day would be a breeze while your team can simply assume control of the back-end.

Establish User Documentation and Guides: 

What makes your on-demand app development process better than 80% of the competition out there? Make sure that your customers have the smoothest user experience. As we’re living in the age of digital transformation, user documentation can no longer be moved to the sidelines. Prioritize, creating an extensive knowledge base for your users, be it demo recordings, CMS guides, agnostic chatbots FAQ, or meaningful content. The key is to have all the resources they need ready so that the struggle is kept to a bare minimum.

Revise and Reroute

Post-launch, you’ll receive a lot of feedback from customers and users based on their clickthrough rate, retention rate, or even abandoned carts. For instance, your delivery app UI has been a bit too unfamiliar for users to find real-time updates. Your job is to find out what aspects of your on-demand delivery app development can be refined, and make the necessary adjustments. The first six months are usually dedicated to such fine-tuning after which the app will settle into a simple feature addition, user-experience enhancements, or debugging process per update.

Wrapping it All Up:

The journey may seem meticulous, but the diligence pays off. Curating a lucrative solution for your customer base can be made easier if you followed these six steps while formulating a strategy. Be it an on-demand cab development solution or an online dispensary you’re seeking to build, the bottom line lies in having the right technological support. At iView, we strive to make the process of launching an on-demand app seamless with our bespoke solutions.

Uberification of Everything

UOE

Some months back we created our platform for On Demand taxi app. With this platform, we got a lot of inquiries for building similar solutions for different business services in different countries. It kept me wondering why businesses are interested in building an Uber for X. So I dug dip to understand the entire concept for Uberification of Everything is the future.

What do you understand by Uberification?

Uberification defines the ease of On-demand services in a simple way. When a user is able to book and utilize that service in few minutes is what I claim as uberification.

History of Uberification

It all started with search engines which gave us the convenient access to an unlimited spread of information available on the internet. The First search engine was created in 1990. With the disruption of mobile technology, things became even more accessible. In 2009, Uber was launched and it was a major disruption in the On-demand service model. Looking at Uber’s success, many new businesses were formed on the similar On-demand service model. Suddenly you see an Uber for Food, Uber for Salon, Uber of medicines etc.

Why the Buzz of Uberification?

Uberification is convenience tech. People today don’t want to wait for a product or service for hrs, they want everything in minutes, hence Convenience tech is the future. On Demand, Businesses are running on this psychology of delivering convenience to the user, as it buys time and saves effort for the customer. On Demand services gives instant gratification of receiving something when you order. You don’t have to wait for that service. These On Demand services have given rise to an On Demand economy which helps you to cater to all the needs by making the products and service available to the user in real time and as per their convenience.

So why consumers are looking for these On-demand services like Uber because it delivers on the following aspects of convenience based on Dr. Paul Marsden

  1. Decision Convenience – Making it fast and easy to choose
  2. Access Convenience – Making it fast and easy to acquire
  3. Transaction Convenience – Making it fast and easy to pay
  4. Benefit Convenience – Making it fast and easy to enjoy/use
  5. Post-Benefit Convenience – Making it fast and easy to re-purchase

What is the potential for Uber for X?

Securing humans and automobiles to things with IoT.

How tracking sensors are not just used in the Automotive Industry but they are now shaping the way we track each and every surrounding we operate in day to day lives.

 Last 2 years have been really intense for us in terms of designing and fulfilling the real need of enterprises to track the mobile workforce in the field and to track the moving automotive. The enterprises today are not just confined to offices and work is not happening only in the corridors of offices, workforce today are mobile and a lot of work is carried out off office space and hours. So, in the changing times, everyone needs real-time visibility of the things on the move.

Like a simple example of you being tracked and traced by your mobile phones in traffic on real-time basis and tools today such as Maps and tracking software are able to gather your continuous data by moving in the real-time traffic. Such tracking helps to create transparency which in turn increases productivity and reduces the cost for businesses.

 Security and Tracking has been an essential case study in the following 3 applicabilities:-

–       HealthCare: Whether tracking people of Alziehmer to tracking a Diabetic or a patient with cardiothoracic diseases, tracking patients is a need for healthcare. Such patients can be tracked by RFID sensors or Radio sensors or GPS sensors in the mobile apps and through which our solutions raise the alarm when something goes wrong with their Health.

These solutions are also used to track the grazing animals which are of utmost importance for the biological ecosystem.

–       Kids Tracking: Here the kids can be tracked using RFID sensors which are power based which helps parents to ensure their safety.

–       Car Tracking: Automobiles are seriously vulnerable to the theft and rash driving behavior when it comes to the rental business of the on-demand taxi booking business. Whether it is running an OLA, Lyft or Uber type of applications one needs to ensure that the entire Vehicles are necessary to be tracked and position of the real-time movement of the cars are to be determined. The tracking and movement of the cars can be determined using the GPS sensors which are far more accurate and can determine the location on the realtime for the cars and vehicles.

Essentials to develop Uber like On Demand Taxi Solution

Blog (1)
On Demand Cab Booking is a state of art Cab or Taxi booking platform.

Target market: Fleet Management Companies, Car Rental Companies, Logistics Companies.

Why On-demand Taxi booking is an important and utmost priority for booking the cab online?

With many enterprises functioning the area of the Fleet Rentals and Car rentals or truck rentals, it is very important for them to make sure that their cars, fleet, and assets can be booked online. Having this done they need a very strong reliable platform to alleviate their business online and free them from the hassle of booking cabs online using the traditional way of calling and going through the call centers. We had an interesting case study of a company based out in Ghana, the entrepreneur from the logistics domain had all his business domain of booking the cabs on telephone and cash collections done manually.  With having no online cab booking solutions the company had never a chance to grow the business and was in the same mode since years and they had a marginal growth which has been observed. This made them operational issues such as loosing out the valued customers, loosing out the drivers who were brought in mode cash for the company, missing our assets on the road and fuel theft and cash shortfall issues.

Untitled-3 (1)

Moreover, the users in the city lacked the great public transport system and online cab booking solutions such as Uber, Lyft was also now able to cover the market out there.

 Online cab booking system solves the problems of 3 stakeholders.

  • the drivers: by making them drive with pride – they are now official partners of the Cab Management or Taxi Rental companies.
  • the riders: they are now happy because their solution to the cab booking is easy and on the go. They are now pocket light since they do not have to shell our the hassles of having their own cab and now can book the cab online through the platform and be hassle free.
  • the enterprise – which is running the platform – since they are now autopilot with their needs
    • Increase in their revenue by multifold
    • Managing the riders and drivers online
    • Resolving the issues of cash management by virtualizing and keeping a better accounting online
    • Running the loyalty program through our Smart Cabs platform and giving offers to the customers who are loyal and riding most of the cars.

Having said to resolve the issues by proving a robust and reliable online taxi booking solution by iView Labs
