New driver search features. The ones you’ve been waiting for

Thought there will be no features after the 0.19 release? Well, that’s not how we do things at TaxiStartup.

While you were reading our email about the new release, we’ve developed a new driver search feature. It brings all the convenience together for your operators to be fully in control of how the taxi drivers do their work! Let us tell more details😏

Check the number of drivers per each service type

Have a look at the map below. It shows you drivers according to the service type they belong to. You can see how many taxi drivers are online, and how many of them are busy or available. There are pins on the map in the locations where your taxi drivers are. Handy, right?

Driver filtering

Click on the pin to see the route

It is now possible to view the whole route of every order a taxi driver is completing. To see it, you click on the pin of a driver on the map. By doing that, you’ll get the pickup and dropoff pins shown on the map. Just like that:

Driver route on the map

In the right part of the map, driver’s profile information will appear. It includes the description of the route the driver is completing, driver’s personal info and a link to the order details. This is something we’ve introduced instead of the old driver’s chart you got to see next to the pin in the previous versions of the system.

Why is this interesting? Because in case you’re not sure why a taxi driver is in a particular area or why they’re not moving, you can check their order status. Or even follow it from the beginning to the end. Life’s becoming easier💪

Refined driver search for real-time orders

Need to find a driver who’s on a ride? No problem! Above the drivers’ list, you can type in the search parameter to find taxi drivers. There are 4 types of parameters:

  • Name;
  • Phone number;
  • Email;
  • Board number.

The relevant driver on the map

No matter how huge your fleet is, now you can find and follow every driver on the map, real time. If there are more than 100 search results suiting your inquiry, you’ll be asked to clarify the search parameters.

A bit of explanation of the pin types. Transparent pins stand for drivers offline (or, in case you’re searching, for the drivers not matching the search word). “Busy” drivers are marked on the map with a pin with a white dot inside. A taxi driver available for an order has a pin filled with colour.

See? The map is clearer than ever! And nope, we won’t stop delivering you new, handy features!😼
