There is no denying the fact that technology being the most superior service to survive on has changed our lifestyles drastically. Even the most menial tasks today can be done online in just one click. The online services on-demand have changed our survival patterns.

From getting grocery online to appointing a makeup stylist to booking travel and movie tickets, to shopping online and ordering food, smartphones and such services at one tap have made humans irresistible to on-demand services.

Uber being one of the leading taxi booking apps have not just set an example for companies to adopt such marketing strategies but has also added a sense of competition to local driver and companies. Many taxi service providers are opting for taxi app development for their business to stay competitive.

The term “Uberification” itself comes from the taxi company that has bloomed in such a short span of time. When you hear a company referring to getting ‘Uberified’, it means it’s looking forward to adopting strategies similar to Uber, i.e. to serve when asked for.

Imagine when Uber-like companies have proven to serve phenomenally in just the transportation business, how much would other startups in businesses like food, fashion, health and beauty, housing, etc. would transform.

How Has Uberification Given a Competition to Local Taxi Companies?

The Uberification in transportation has shattered the business of local taxi services.

Even though the Uber app clone companies are new to transportation, they have set a milestone in the taxi business.

This has led to a downfall in some of the local taxi business in the United States of America. The competition is such that Uber taxi drivers were assaulted by metered charge drivers out of frustration and failure.

It is highly evident because same is the scenario in other countries across the globe. Metered charge drivers are facing a downfall in their business.

How Is Uber Helping These Local Metered Charge Drivers?

Uber has declared that these drivers can utilize its application so that both Uber and the local drivers can do their job. This will not affect their service too.

The General Manager of Uber addressed that the drivers would just have to log off from Uber application when they find a customer at a metered taxi point. If they require more clients, they can sign in and work.

Why Has Uber App Clone Companies Brought Transformation in the Taxi Industry?

Uber and similar companies have brought a sweeping transformation in the taxi industry and there surely have been some exceptional features that have led to this formation. Let's discuss some of them:

Service On-demand

Unlike metered taxis, dispatched taxis can be booked whenever and wherever needed.


As these uber clone scripts design the app such that it requires users’ and drivers’ personal information, security gets ensured.


Because taxi dispatch services make sure to provide the best customer service, they mainly focus on reviews and improvements that can be made.

Immediately after the ride, both drivers and users are asked for a feedback on their screen.

Maintenance and Ratings

Since customers are the backbone of every service, it is essential that to grow as a  taxi dispatch company in terms of revenue, the traffic of customers must be high.

Customers mainly get satisfied with the car condition, service provided and most importantly the driver’s behavior as a servant.

To ensure satisfaction, customers rate the drivers. If a driver gets ratings below an expected level, he is asked to leave the company.

Similarly, if the drivers have any issue passenger, they can report and make a choice to decline a cab order.


When even the easiest of all technical tasks require an internet connection, who wouldn’t love getting a free connection especially while they are traveling.Although very few cabs have this facility, yet the companies are improving and working on providing the best of all facilities.  

Many more exceptional features in taxi company apps have made it bloom and become a monopoly but these companies are putting up efforts to engage the metered car drivers in order to save their business.
