We just launched this app called Caby, it is a ride hailing industry. It has taken us months to develop it. Unlike many apps in Kenya, especially in the ride hailing industry, we identified one of the main problems was buying ready made Apps. At the end of the day these apps are not built for the Kenyan market.
So We have developed Caby over months and we are still developing it.
Another problem we noticed was that the drivers feel hard done because of the high commission taken from them by these companies.
Again, we deliberate on this and decided to create two models; one is a commission system very much like the other companies, but at 10%. While the other is a daily fixed model where drivers pay us a standard rate daily and whatever income they get from the trips they keep. For example, if the daily fix is 200 shs. the driver will pay this and even if they take trips worth 4000, the 200 shs is the only money we take. This gives drivers flexibility and helps them earn more money.
Right now we want to create a better app for our customer base, the app is great (biased opinion ). But we would love to hear more from people who actually use cab apps and ride hailing apps.
So please feel free to try the Caby app and give us feedback, we would love to improve the app more for the Kenyan market.
