About the Company:

This case study explores the success story of a three-decade-old on-demand software company that builds solutions for ground transportation companies. Their comprehensive offerings include dispatch software, driver applications, back-end support and more.

The Problem

The US-based company sought assistance for their vehicle dispatch solution that powers on-demand taxi services across the US, Israel and the Dominican Republic.

They relied on the combination of two industry leaders for Distance Matrix API and Directions API to keep the costs low and maintain ETA accuracy.

Their goal was to enhance their solution’s cost-effectiveness without any dip in the accuracy of ETA calculations for on-demand trips.

Our Solution

They swiftly transitioned to NextBillion.ai following a comprehensive evaluation driven by four key considerations:

  • Usage and QPS management: NextBillion.ai’s high queries per second limit and ability to set API limits granted them greater control over costs and usage, enhancing the overall management experience.
