Amigo Driver Tunisie
Languages: English, Arabic, French, Spanish
The AmiGo app is a one-of-a-kind taxi service based on the ride-sharing model. They allow riders to reduce the waiting time spent to find a taxi and for drivers to spend moments of conviviality with passengers having the same route as the customer. It saves the customer’s time and money sharing the driver’s trip.
It is a 100% Tunisian application based on the “win-win” concept between the AmiGo driver and the passenger. It was created to satisfy the needs of both parties by allowing them to generate more revenue for individual taxis and make life easier for taxi users in Tunisia.
It is the pioneering taxi application on the market that launched the first shared shopping service in Tunisia with the objectives of saving transport costs and spending a moment of conviviality during the journey.
They Found the Right Platform
The work of a newly created Startup, AmiGo, is a Taxi-Client linking application. For that, they have found Eber, a base product that resembles their requirements, which is fully scalable and offers ease of use. It gets modified as per the need of the AmiGo team that cares about citizens’ mobility and transactions, especially their wallets.
The key required customization is the Ride Sharing feature, whose entire algorithm has been designed by a team of experts who have optimized as much as possible, which will fulfill their objective. Ultimately, this modification helps the passenger and driver to have a common, effective, and affordable shared trip.
The Reasons for Eber Modification:
With fuel prices soaring and difficulties in getting around on public transport, the team of engineers strove to combine the equation between facilitating mobility and the accessibility of the price by offering customers to share trips in taxis and thus reduce the trip price.
By capitalizing on the values of sharing and savings, the engineers have suggested modifications in the AmiGo application over the Eber base product, which meets the needs of customers by offering them taxi rides at reduced prices and also the expectations of Taxis by guaranteeing them an optimization of time of work.
How it was Made Possible
Thanks to an algorithm, teams of Eber have developed AmiGo. This unique journey optimization application allows 2 customers within a radius of 2 Km around the taxi and taking the same routes to share the journey, each paying half of the price.
The other innovation of the AmiGo application is that it offers subscription and prepaid package formulas for regular Taxis users who can benefit from specific bonuses and advantages. AmiGO aims to be a mobility facilitator in the service of taxis by optimizing their working hours and for customers by reducing their transport costs.
Dedicated Developer to Get Customized and Support:
Based on the detailed explanation and developer API, the developer team at our end has modified the existing Rider Sharing feature that works over the new algorithm that the team has developed. After modifying the base product, the staging environment was also created to keep working on any further customization by which the actual customer can not affected.
Our service to the client continued beyond modifying things, but we have provided them support for 6 months at an affordable rate, and sometimes we also have help in case of emergency.
