A young entrepreneur from Indonesia partnered with Magora to create a car sharing platform that would address one of the most pressing issues of the country’s capital. Being a home to almost 10 million people, Jakarta has no proper public transport network. Our client wanted to provide Indonesians with an easy way to find passengers and drivers for shared rides, which would make up for the lack of public transport and allow people to get from one place to another at minimal expense and in good company.
Magora’s experts began developing this project from scratch. We helped the client conceptualise his ideas into fully-fledged requirement specifications, collected robust analytics and created a design concept, laying the groundwork for the car sharing website. We then proceeded to programming, building a system where all information is maintained in a database located on a web server. To make this possible, we utilised the following technologies:
Backend: Loopback, PostgreSQL, Node.js
Frontend: AJAX, SPA, WebSockets, ReactJS, Redux.js, Flux
As a result, we created a user-friendly website with robust functionality that helps users find or advertise a ride, share transportation costs and meet new people. To access the website, search for rides and view results, users need an established internet connection. The system also has the capability of representing both summary and detailed information about the users and their cars. All Tebengan users are divided into three categories:
Some of Tebengan’s signature features are:
Tebengan is bringing tangible value to all Indonesians thanks to its unique philosophy, which distinguishes it from other car sharing platforms and taxi services. It can be described in three simple words - relations over money. The aim of the Tebangan app solution is to help drivers and passengers connect to each other and have a good time travelling together. Drivers can set their own conditions for each ride, requiring a passenger to pay a certain amount of money, tell an interesting story or buy them a cup of coffee, which means that everyone can find a ride to suit their budget.
The beta version of Tebengan will be available to the general public by this summer. The client plans to release the full product by the end of the year and proceed to development of native applications for mobile devices.
