I'm looking to develop an original complete dispatch system for my existing Car Service that will be expanding locally as well as nationally in the future. This includes;
Dispatch center; This will be cloud based. It should be caller ID capable, as well as integrate with text to landline currently in use which has an open API. It will log all passenger data for future orders. This end of the system will also show real time vehicle locations and occupancy status. It should also creat full reports such as occupied vs unoccupied miles, as well as occupied time vs unoccupied time etc. It needs to be cleanly laid out, maps should utilize majority of screen, and possibly be dual monitor capable.
Passenger app; This will be available on iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 8. It will be beautiful to use, as well as look at. Maps utilizing full screen with possible custom map skin. It will have Foursquare integration for easy location pinpointing. They should be able to reserve in the future or order on demand. They should be able to rate drivers for future preference. The UI will be very easy to navigate. I do have concepts for the UI written up. A customer will sign up easily with email and password, and can scan cc for payment as well as store extra cards on file. They should also be able to sign up via Google Wallet on Android platform.
Drivers app; Aesthetically this will match the customers app. Drivers will login, and will recognize the driver as well as link their bank account to receive payment. They will be able to accept or reject calls, logout, and send receipts to customers via email or text.
I am looking to get this started no later than early September.
This could also potentially lead to a permanent team for the right person.
