Get an app like Uber
The Nigerian taxi market is flooded with apps like Uber. MyCabman, Taxify, Holla Cab and Drop are just a few of them. If you want to launch an app like these or of any of the major taxi apps, you need to consult with eSiteWorld and they will customize your Uber like app and get it cloned to an app of your choice. The app cost is very minimal. Of course the cost you pay ultimately will depend on the number and types of features you get integrated into your app.
One thing that people often overlook is getting a Non Disclosure Agreement. When you get your own app, it is absolutely necessary that you protect yourself from everywhere possible. Most of the times what happens is that when you buy an application, the company that has sold you the app likes to showcase your name on their site.
However, is that in your best interest? Not really. The thing about mobile apps is, you aren’t the only one who wants to start off a business like that. If your competitor knows who made the application for you, they will easily be able to approach the company and get a better app with even more advanced features.
Also, what if you have a new and unique idea that you implemented in the application? Will you be able to share it with a company not knowing whether they will disclose it to your competitors or start selling your ideas to others as well?
Not a great idea, right? Ensure that when you buy the application, you buy it from sources that are interested in protecting you and your interests first. Check out their policies and try to make sure that no one sells you out.
There is always an excuse to delay the beginning of a business. People like to put off their business on the smallest excuses. This is why it is of utmost importance that you take the plunge and don’t put it off. There’s no time like NOW. Do a little research and prepare yourself. When you think you know what the business is like, just go ahead with it and begin working on it.
Look for a decent Taxi application and then go right ahead and invest in it. Once you do that, your app should be ready within a week so you can launch it and start making money from it.
