Startup of the Week - Roadio

roadioWe all know that learning to drive and drive safely at that, can be one of the most important  things that we ever do - thanks in no small part to the sense of freedom, independence and empowerment that it brings.

Of course when we’re at the learning stage, the first hurdle we face is finding an instructor - a friend may recommend one, we pick up a business card on a supermarket noticeboard or we may even simply scour the ads in the local paper.

Well, thanks to our latest Startup of the Week, finding a driving instructor has just become a whole lot easier.

Roadio is an innovative new app which describes itself as the “ultimate learn-to-drive app” - a description which is pretty fitting when you realise what it does.

In essence, the app is targeted at two distinct user groups - learners and instructors.

Here’s how learners can use it:

As we’ve alluded to already, users can use the app to search for and compare local driving instructors. They can read testimonials from other learners and thereby assess which is the right instructor for them.

The app can be used to book lessons directly and to keep track of the essentials - the dates and times of lessons, payment details and a complete record of all lessons taken to date. Instructors can provide feedback on those lessons and users can thereby assess their progress and any areas needing improvement.

As for instructors?

Well, the app is the perfect platform for them to reach new learners. By signing up and creating a profile, they are effectively advertising their services to their exact target market.

From a business perspective, Roadio makes things so easy. Enquiries and bookings can all be managed from the app. All schedules, contact details and client history are immediately accessible, as too are payment and revenue details, meaning a much easier job when it comes to submitting those dreaded tax and end of year returns.

At the moment the app available for iOS only but we understand that an Android version is on the way.

Roadio is a simple idea but as we all know - those ones are generally the best!

There are so many benefits for both learners and instructors to use this app, that it’s bound to succeed, wouldn’t you agree?
