LAS VEGAS, Nev. — GroundWidgets released its GroundOnDemand product Monday, an end-to-end solution to enable ground transportation provider to successfully compete with on demand apps in the marketplace.

“We are leading the market once again by delivering a complete custom branded solution that will empower our clients with the tools to compete with the "On Demand" Apps and intermediaries,” said Apurva Patel, CEO and Founder of GroundWidgets. “This will open up new source of revenues and improve fleet [usage].”  
 
The GroundOnDemand product solution is custom branded and consists of the following three components: Mobile and Web apps for customers, mobile app for the chauffeurs and drivers, and central dispatching and reporting platform.

  • Open up new channel for OnDemand business in local markets
