How do you make sure your business is making the most profit without overcharging your customers? Using technology that is flexible to your businesses needs can help you create a well-formulated pricing plan. Take a look at the different ways you can set your taxi fees and how using a dispatch solutions system can help.
Calculating your charges
There are different ways to calculate your fees, depending on the type of environment you're driving in. For example, calculating your costs per mile can be useful for airport pickups or remote locations where fuel is going to be your highest expenditure. If you operate in an urban environment, then charging per minute could be more beneficial, allowing for traffic causing delays. Charging per pick up ensures parity and a set expectation for your customers but can reduce your overall profit compared to other methods. You can increase your charges for driving in inclement weather or other exceptional one-time conditions using 'special fees'.
Control your options
Specifying fees can help your customers understand the charges you administer and ensure your business continues to make a profit. This aspect is where technology comes in, using a fleet dispatch system that is adaptable to your business's needs and remotely adjusting drivers' pay rates.
