After much wait and patience, the Drover Rideshare team is proud to announce that we will be launching the Drover Rideshare app on the Apple App Store within the next few weeks.
The On-Demand Economy is here. To recap from my On-Demand Economy blog entry, the On-Demand economy is composed of people-to-people transactions facilitated by technology companies (aka smartphone apps), in which people order goods or services and other people deliver/provide that good/service. In order to rise to the opportunity the On-Demand Economy presents, Drover is proud to announce Drover Delivery, a service by which app users will be able to order food (and hopefully other goods) delivered to them by our drivers.
The moment we have all been waiting for is here -- the Drover App has officially launched on the Google Play Store! Check it out on the Play Store here.
After months of time and effort, we are beyond excited to make this announcement. iOS development isn't far behind, but we couldn't wait to launch the android app.
Drover Rideshare officially became a corporation on May 13, 2016. Near that date, CEO Jeff Garland assembled a team of some of the best app developers in Tennessee to start working on Drover's Android and iOS apps. In the past four months, our app dev team have been working tirelessly on bringing Drover to the app market. Today, I am ecstatic to announce that the Android App is 'core complete'.
When the car as we know it today was first invented, it was called the horse-less buggy, because they didn't know what to call it! They figured, well, it gets us around, and it is a buggy without a horse... We are at that stage with electric vehicle technology. We are calling them 'electric cars', the same way that today's cars were once called 'horse-less' buggies. However, just as ridiculous as 'horse-less buggies' sounds to describe today's cars, it's the same thing with electric cars.
Imagine this -- you open the door of your Drover Ride, ready to be epically moved by Drover Rideshare. You know what to expect at this point: water bottles, green mints, and an incredibly friendly, fun, and safe Drover experience. You are surprised, however, to find that your Drover (driver) is dressed up in a costume. Is it Halloween all year long at Drover? Not quite. Welcome to Drover Themed Rides.
As you have probably noticed, Drover sports a distinctly a 'green' theme. On a fundamental level, this color scheme represents our commitment to green technology, and environmentally sustainable development. In addition, Drover's green theme represents the green, friendly culture that we want each of our drivers to promote and sustain in their cars during all rides.
In addition to our primary domain name: www.droverrideshare.com, Drover Rideshare has several forwarding domains that we have acquired. We feel that our portfolio of domains expresses the unique culture here at Drover Rideshare, as well as communities and networks we are passionate about and anticipate serving. Here are some of our favorite forwarding domains and what they mean to us.
Drover ride fares directly benefit local charities -- 24/7, no catch, no exceptions. We want to have our eyes open and our arms outstretched towards the communities that support our operations. Rather than have our Drovers simply move through city streets, we want to actively contribute to the incredible humanitarian efforts already in place in the cities we serve. Everyday, thousands of people serve their community via their positions and volunteering in local and state-based non-profits. Here at Drover, we want to do our part to recognize and help further their efforts through the donation of 2% of each and every fare a Drover ride generates.
As a company, we define ourselves by our unique care for and attention to the environment coupled with our unprecedented focus on the safety and happiness of our drivers and riders. Our dedication to these fronts is unparalleled in the current rideshare industry. Our ultimate goal is to change this; we want to make the rideshare industry more people-centric, and focused on providing a lifting experience to real human beings.
