Uber gives the low­down on the new fea­tures avail­able in its re­vamped Uber Driver app.

HWM (Malaysia) - - IGNITION -

If you didn t al­ready know, Uber ac­tu­ally has two mo­bile apps on Google Play and i S App Store. There s the reg­u­lar Uber app that you should al­ready be wellac uainted with, and there s the Uber driver-part­ner speci c app, called Uber Driver.

The Uber Driver app is de­signed from the ground up to pro­vide Uber driv­ers with all the in­for­ma­tion they need to make the most out of their time on the ride-hail­ing plat­form. Uber driv­ers don t nec­es­sar­ily have to work around the clock, as they have the ex­i­bil­ity of work­ing when­ever they please – re­gard­less of whether it s 12:00pm or 12:00am. All they have to do, is open up the app, and hit the Go nline but­ton.

nce on­line, Uber s in­tel­li­gent dis­patch al­go­rithm will at­tempt to pair the Uber driver with trip re­quests from within his or her im­me­di­ate vicin­ity, thus pre­vent­ing the driver from hav­ing to travel un­nec­es­sar­ily long dis­tances just to pick up a pas­sen­ger. nce the pas­sen­ger is ap­proach­ing his or her drop-off point, the Uber Driver app will au­to­mat­i­cally in­form the driver of any new ride re­quests within the same area, thus short­en­ing wait times as a re­sult. The Uber Driver app also con­tains a live heat map for driv­ers to de­ter­mine where and when is the most pro ta­ble time to start driv­ing.

Lastly, the Uber Driver app will al­low driv­ers to track their earn­ings in real time, and pro­vide them with de­tailed re­ports of their weekly earn­ings. There are also met­rics that will help them op­ti­mize their driv­ing pat­tern, which in turn would re­sult in higher pro ts.
