Sociali is a ride sharing app and platform. It can be instantly used by any community of people, such as women, seniors or facilities/businesses supporting the community such as senior centers, community centers etc. It is for everyone regardless of their age or condition(kids, college students, adults, seniors, disabled, professionals). It has the flexibility to allow the community book seats for motorcycle taxis, micro buses, bike rickshaws or golfitaxis.
Key features of the app and platform:
Allows ride sharing with better utilization of existing vehicles
Sociali provides an easy, alternate transportation option for multiple types of vehicles (motorcycle taxis, bike rickshaws or golfitaxis). It allows using the existing idle vehicles of the community for shared transportation, thereby reducing the size of fleets needed for school and event transport.
Built on Safety & Trust
1. Community driven (Trusted Friends as Drivers) - Members of the community, people you know and trust can use the platform to provide ride sharing services. This also increases community engagement and builds a stronger community.
2. Real time ride tracking - Sociali allows parents/loved ones to see where the kids or seniors are during the ride for additional safety
3. As the rides are paid through Karma points drivers can't decide to charge more money than what they had agreed. This will help users to feel comfortable about last minute surprises.
4. Customizable control over who your ride request goes to - ride share only with people you are comfortable with. Auto rebook allows reliability as others in the community can help last minute requests.
5. Peace of mind - Reduce family stress around transportation needs. Transporting loved ones is one of the most stressful things for families. We want to make families happier.
Deliver Economic benefits to the community
Sociali will enable :
1. Earn gift cards: Members to request and offer rides, from the community. We use Points (“Karma Points”) to keep score of rides. Giving rides earns Points, taking rides uses Points. We let users convert excess Points to real world gift cards, to incentivize people to offer rides.This is beneficial to the individuals and supports the community. Help and get helped, it is good Karma!
2. New Income opportunity for the community - idle assets (cars, taxis) of the community can be put to use to generate income.
3. Low carbon footprint (Green) - reduce the number of cars and reduce traffic congestion.
Sociali can be used by any community instantly. For businesses it can be deployed within hours in any city in the world.
