Uber – the world’s most successful startup, has been expanding with every passing day. The company has been doing great business across the planet. They have managed to come out with some of the best solutions. The latest update that we have from Uber is a much demanded one. Since a long time, the users had been demanding Uber to release a web service where the cabs can be booked online. The company has finally heard their demands, and the users can now book Uber cabs via web.
The company has started off a mobile website in India. This will allow users to now book a cab using the mobile version of Uber’s website. This comes in as a pretty handy tool, especially for those who want to book in emergency situations. Smartphones, as reliable as they can be, might sometimes act rather absurd and cause a lot of nuisance. The company has now introduced their web version with ‘Dial’.
The website shows the nearest cab to the user, along with the minimum fare, the surge and the payment mode. It features a big ‘Book a ride’ button in the bottom. This has been flagged off in certain Indian cities like Nagpur, Kochi, Guwahati, and Jodhpur. Users will just have to head on to the website, and log in to catch Uber cabs via web.
As of this moment, it remains unclear if Uber will be launching this service for bigger cities. For now the plan looks like the company has rolled them out for Tier B cities. This feature allowing the users to book Uber cabs looks like it is specifically designed for emerging markets. This is also helpful for those who might be having data connectivity issues, or unreliable devices which often result in apps crashing. All in all, this seems to be a good move from Uber, and will help them fight off competition.
