High Concept Statement

Camelcamelcamel for uber taxi-services

 

Status Quo

There are various of apps that we can use to call cars and sometimes there is a price difference among the apps. The app we are trying to create is to compare and find the best suitable price&time for the customers.

 

Competition

Customers will need to open different apps to see the price and estimate wait time via different apps such as Uber and Lyft. Our competition is when people are using relatively cheap rides such as uber pool or a price difference among cars is negligible

 

Solution

Our product will compare price and estimate wait time among different application for customers to find the best option that is suitable for them. Once they select certain application such as “Lyft”, the app will direct the customers to the Lyft app with the current location and destination already been placed using our app. All the customer have to do as this point is to click “Request Ride”.

 

Revenue Model

Charge the app for a relatively cheap price in the app store.
