Need a driver to take you to work? That’s the dream – catch up on emails, calls, or just take some stress-free chill time on your commute.
Faxi is giving drivers an even bigger profile on the platform, with a new feature which allows users to easily identify ‘dedicated drivers’ across carpool networks.
In the latest release of the Faxi app, users who are ‘dedicated drivers’ will be easily identifiable by a gold ‘halo’ around their avatar on the map, and will also feature in the smart suggestion list and can be filtered during search.
For passengers, this makes searching for drivers even easier. Faxi dedicated drivers are hand-selected by the Faxi team on the basis of being reliable and flexible in their commuting patterns, willing to take passengers, and rewarded fairly for being a proactive carpooler.
It also gets cooler. Don’t like tackling icy roads in winter? Prefer a ‘safer’ driver? Well, we’re working on adding some functionality that enables this. With one client, we are looking to highlight drivers who are able to drive in all weather conditions (for example, if they own a 4×4 or have a high-rated Safe Driver Score), so that key workers can find alternative transport to work if there are snowy or icy road conditions.
For drivers who are assigned the dedicated driver status, the new feature will help them to attract more passengers which will contribute to the rewards they are issued by their employer – this can be anything from priority on-site parking to vouchers. Additionally, drivers can earn money on their daily commute using the digital wallet feature, which allows passengers to pay a contribution to the driver.
Organisations and employees who are already registered on Faxi and are keen to highlight drivers that are willing and reliable, or those drivers who are keen to earn extra money from taking colleagues to and from work, simply need to supply us with this information and we can review these users for dedicated driver status.
Once a driver is approved as a dedicated driver, they will be more visible to other registered users in their community. Then they can earn more money on their commute, and get all the benefits set by their employer while helping to take more cars off the road. Happy commuting all round!
