Taxi-Booking Industry

People rate a taxi app like Uber or its services because of the routes driver take, for price fluctuations beyond their control, for slow traffic, for refusing to speed, for talking too much or too little, for failing to perform large tasks unrealistically quickly.

Hence, being a taxi mobile app owner, you can’t ditch or offend a customer in any way. Maybe your last customer has given you 5 stars, but a “Single Star” from a single customer could put you out of business.

 “Do you know- In New York, Uber delists drivers from the platform if they go below a 4.5-star average?”

Food-Delivery Industry:

People rate Food delivery apps or services on the basis of- how fast services arrive at your doors, for the food being cold when the delivery man delivered it or whether the quantity or quality is compromised somewhere.

A single complain or least rating could destroy the reputation of the service provider along with his business.

You must be aware of the news of one of the food-delivery app company- Zomato where-

“Zomato delivery boy opens food pack eats, and seals it back. The company said sorry with a promise that the company would soon introduce ‘tamper-proof tapes’ to avoid such situations in the future.”

Zomato had faced many negative ratings at that time.

“Before delivering a chartbuster food-delivery app always mark that People always goes with the high rated app.”

Tour & Travel Industry:

While your travel app should provide short information about hotels, restaurants, and cafes, but what the users will believe is the ratings and reviews from other users. This feature helps in creating awareness and also helps to better the services of hotels, cafes, and other businesses.

This means that businesses need to find a medium to become renowned with fewer downloads.

“High rating stuff always attracts a user towards availing it.”
