I'm looking for a South African freelancer to build my transportation app. It is based on the same format as uber, taxify etc. I am targeting a market these guys haven't gone for yet. I will eventually sell the technology and data to the highest bidder. I initially want to build the basic platform and run it in a few cars in Cape Town to boost the guys sales figures. Once I know it works I will then add all the premium functions and monetizing structures on the app as well. I have been working on the concept for the past few months gathering information and brainstorming the services. The basic system will be the same e-hailing service as uber but this will be focused towards a more specific consumer. The app will allow the user the opportunity to get receive valuable information along the route of their journey. It will highlight places of interest as the user enters the radius of the location. This information will be collated by me, translated into various languages as the demographic requires it, and narrated as the user passes certain POI.
For premium users we will add discount vouchers for POI to allow users to qualify for better rates at restaurants and shops on their route. But this will be for later development.
Please can you give me an estimate of how much the basic app system will cost, as well as timelines, up until trial mode. I have cars available to trial the system out on.
