However, members of the taxi industry are listed below:

Let's take a look at how the admin handles each member.

Passenger

The Admin panel allows the admin to take control of all passenger requests and inquiries. All users' names, email addresses, contact information, ratings, and ride history are visible to the admin.

The admin can also view a list of all unapproved drivers who have registered with the system. The admin can check the driver's vehicle information and documents before approving or disapproving them.

Dispatcher Panel

You'll need a dispatcher to monitor all of the business activities to avoid overload. That is why UnicoTaxi created this dispatcher panel, which allows you to add multiple dispatchers to the list by entering their name, phone number, e-mail address, password, and other details. The dispatcher, however, is in charge of building a driver database, which allows them to respond to ride requests, assign drivers, track rides, etc. Furthermore, the dispatcher can monitor the status of drivers in real-time and act accordingly.

The dispatcher can look up a driver's current status and take the following steps.

Admin dispatchers can add drivers to a list.

You can add companies to the list by entering their name, company name, email, phone number, commission percentage, profile, and status.

UnicoTaxi developed a Corporate Panel with this in mind. Admin can create a corporate list by entering its legal name, a display name, an email address, a phone number, a CR number, and so on.

It is a requirement that you select any of these options along with the pick-up and drop-off locations.

Driver Ratings

Drivers are usually graded based on their driving habits, politeness, and how clean and odor-free their vehicles are, etc. Passengers' average ratings are visible to drivers. It encourages drivers to pay more attention to their driving service while improving productivity.

Notification

Passengers and drivers will receive notifications or alerts for any activity on the taxi app, such as ride acceptance, expected surcharge, and more. The admin can send a notification alert to the entire list of drivers and passengers or a specific demographic of drivers and passengers.

The admin handles three types of notifications in this section, which are as follows:

SMS Notification: Passengers and drivers can receive real-time ride alerts via SMS text messages from the admin.

Mail Notification: The user and driver receive email notifications at their registered email IDs. At various stages of a ride, Admin can even send automatic emails to both passengers and drivers.

Push Notifications: Admin can use the push notification feature to send business-related information to all users, drivers, or both.

The admin can send all of these three types of notifications to passengers and drivers. Moreover, the admin can edit the names of passengers and drivers, the notification mode, and the message sent, all of which helps in increasing brand awareness.

Service Type

UnicoTaxi caters to meet its customers' needs by offering a range of services. However, the admin can create a list of services – based on the business model, ID, service name, TAX percentage, and service image. Furthermore, the Admin can change the taxi service's vehicle name/ service type and turn it on or off for the business.

Fare Management

Admin can manage various fares for various cities based on the type of vehicle. Surge pricing, for instance, can be turned on or off depending on the day of the week and the time of day.

Standard Fare

The admin can automate the fare calculation process by specifying a flat fare and variable parameters such as fare per mile, fare per minute, waiting time, toll rates, surge pricing, and other charges. This feature allows the admin to set the fare based on the Monday-Thursday Tariff and the Friday-Sunday Tariff. This fare model depends mainly on charges and timings.

Meanwhile, there is a separate edit and delete option.
