VLink in coordination with the award winning Meru technology team has developed a first-of-its kind, integrated and comprehensive technology platform for its Corporate Travel Solution and other services that come under the umbrella of its product offerings. The path breaking software solution has three main components:
Web application for administration
An integrated, comprehensive, web-based application that enables VLink to manage all your travel requirements in a centralized manner. VLink with its optimized algorithms has automated the routing, scheduling, vehicle allocation & dispatch. The web portal is equipped with live tracking and monitoring via GPS enabled devices and real time reports for analytics. Billing and payments is also automated to facilitate ease in the entire billing process.
Mobile application for chauffeurs & users
All our chauffeurs own recommended mobile devices installed with VLink mobile app that provides details of the trip such as the pick-up/ drop address and time, number of passengers and navigation map for the shortest route. Through the app, chauffeurs can indicate their status and position. The system captures real time information on whether the chauffeur has started from garage, or arrived at the destination, passengers picked up/ dropped or even a break-down.
Also featured under out tech platform is the user mobile app which can be downloaded and installed from the Google PlayStore. Users availing travel services under any of our product offerings will be able to view their trip details, track the vehicles, send and receive alerts and provide feedback all at a click of a button.
