Breaking News : Now book rides on Baxi app without Internet connection
#1

Gurgaon-based Baxi will roll out a new feature to help users book rides on the app without using Internet.

The bike-taxi hailing app, which offers services in Gurgaon and Faridabad, will make the feature available to its 30,000 users from next week.
“All customers that have an Android smartphone without a data connection can now use the new Baxi app. Customers can also use the app even when their Internet connection isn’t working,” Baxi co-founder and CTO Manu Rana said.

This feature will help the company reach out to a larger number of customers as they will not have to rely on or spend money on data packs. Upon opening the app, the user has to press the BOOKbutton to get the nearest Baxi. If the app is offline, it uses an SMS to send the user’s location and request to its server, find the closest Baxi and respond to the user with that information using SMS.

The app reads the SMS and displays the drivers information and location to the user in the same way as it would do in an online booking. “With this revolutionary innovation, our app is now the first and only taxi-booking app in the world, let alone bike-taxi booking industry, that functions without a data pack or Internet connection,” he said.
