Philippines re­cently launched new fea­tures on its mo­bile app in ap­par­ent re­sponse to cus­tomer, as well as reg­u­la­tors' de­mands.

The ini­tia­tive is part of the com­pany's Bet­ter Ev­ery­day cam­paign to en­sure a safer and more con­ve­nient trans­porta­tion, Grab's top man­age­ment said dur­ing the launch of the up­graded mo­bile app Wed­nes­day night.

“True to its mis­sion of bring­ing con­sumers closer to what mat­ters to them, Grab rolled out a se­ries of app en­hance­ments that will make rides safer, more seam­less and more re­ward­ing,” Grab Philippines pres­i­dent Brian Cu said dur­ing the event held in Makati City.

The fol­low­ing are the fea­tures that will be rolled out by Grab on its app for its rid­ers:

- Can­cel Any­time, which will al­low Grab users to can­cel their book­ing at­tempts be­fore a driver gets as­signed.

- Saved Places, which will en­able quick se­lec­tion of fre­quented places, such as home, work, gym, etc. for per­son­al­iza­tion of pickup or drop-off points.

- Re­ward points for pas­sen­gers who were can­celled, which they can re­deem to avail of items such as food, ser­vices, and dis­counts.

- Change Des­ti­na­tion, which will al­low pas­sen­gers to mod­ify their dropoff points while in tran­sit. This fea­ture is avail­able on GrabCar, GrabCar 6-seater, and GrabCar Pre­mium ser­vices only in Metro Manila, Cebu, Bacolod, and Pam­panga.

- Lost and Found fea­ture, which will help pas­sen­gers con­tact a driver di­rectly af­ter the com­pleted book­ing. To re­cover the item left in the car, they must click on the book­ing his­tory tab, choose the re­cent book­ing record, and tap the new call but­ton to reach the driver. The call but­ton func­tion is avail­able within four hours af­ter the trip has ended.

“In com­pli­ance with data pri­vacy laws, phone num­bers of both pas­sen­gers and driv­ers are masked and the app will only show a vir­tual num­ber. Be­yond the four-hour pe­riod, pas­sen­gers may reach the driver via the help cen­ter,” Cu said.

- Pas­sen­ger time­out fea­ture, which tem­po­rar­ily bans pas­sen­gers with ex­ces­sive can­cel­la­tions. Con­sumers will not be able to book a ser­vice for a max­i­mum of 23 hours upon reach­ing the fol­low­ing limit:

1) Max­i­mum of two can­cel­la­tions per Grab ser­vice within 1 hour

2) Max­i­mum of three can­cel­la­tions per Grab ser­vice within 24 hour

3) Max­i­mum of five can­cel­la­tions per Grab ser­vice within 7 days

Grab has like­wise added two new fea­tures on its de­liv­ery ser­vice plat­form GrabEx­press to sup­port mi­cro-en­trepreneurs and make de­liv­er­ies faster and more con­ve­nient:

- Multi-stop de­liv­ery fea­ture, which will al­low users to send de­liv­er­ies to five dif­fer­ent re­cip­i­ents and lo­ca­tions us­ing one sin­gle rider.

- Mul­ti­ple Con­cur­rent Book­ings fea­ture for so­cial sell­ers and mi­cro-en­trepreneurs, al­low­ing them to send a max­i­mum of 10 parcels us­ing dif­fer­ent de­liv­ery part­ners at the same time.

Grab as­sured that it will con­tinue to use mod­ern tech­nol­ogy to im­prove the de­liv­ery of its var­i­ous ser­vices to cus­tomers.

“As an ev­ery­day app, we con­tinue to use our tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide so­lu­tions that will im­prove the daily ex­pe­ri­ence of our fel­low Filipinos. Our goal is to serve our con­sumers bet­ter ev­ery day with the chal­lenge to al­ways go above and be­yond what is ex­pected,” Cu said.
