MapmyIndia, a provider of digital maps, GPS navigation and Web mobile location apps in India, has launched MapmyIndia Locate app for all passengers using Snap Cab, a cab service based out of NOIDA.
With this the Snap Cab customers can instantly share their location with the near and dear ones once they enter the cab. And as the journey proceeds, passengers can be live tracked by the contacts of their choice.
Snap Cab vehicles are already GPS enabled, and now with MapmyIndia Locate app the customer is empowered to take further security measures as she/he deems appropriate , the company said.
“MapmyIndia Locate app is helping us address the security concern of our passengers in a hassle-free and convenient way. I feel that that security as a USP will not only earn us the goodwill of the customers but also contribute strongly towards the brand equity of Snap Cab,” says Ashutosh Balwaria, founder, Snap Cab.
The new service works in the following way: Once customer books a Snap Cab, the company sends a confirmation SMS with the details of the driver and the link to download the Locate app. The customer then downloads and registers with the Locate app. Once the customer enters Snap Cab, he/she can either manually check-in or set the app to auto check-in. Friends or family members can then track her movement live, either on a smartphone or on a PC.
MapmyIndia Locate can be downloaded free from the link shared with the passenger on Google Play/iTunes/Windows store.
MapmyIndia’s applications cover the complete spectrum of Social, Navigation and Tracking for all popular mobile platforms including Android, iOS, Windows and Blackberry.
