Beth Pestel | Charlotte Garside | Jack Deaner | Yemi Fadahunsi
•One tap and a car comes directly to you
•Your driver knows exactly where to go
•Payment is completely cashless
Uber subtly highlights everything that sucks about a traditional taxi and points out how its service is superior
Both located in San Francisco
Similar service to Uber
Price, App (Uber clearer price)
Smaller coverage area
Offer images to show you what the rides like
Lyft aren't as clear as Uber in their ride types
"Gett is an on-demand mobility company"
Uses an app with customer and driver information - can book and pay via the app
Can also use as traditional black cab - i.e. general 'waiting' pick ups at train stations
First to introduce fixed fairs - $10 any ride in Manhattan - fixed in London which beat the meter pricing strategy
No 'surge charges' guaranteed
"The Smartest Way to Get Around"
- Lyft New Driver Discounts, Uber follows

No phone calls, complicated directions or handling of money is needed. At the top of the Uber website is an aspirational message, which states "your day belongs to you." Which reinforces the hassle free service they offer.
Competition was low;
Uber established in 2009
Gett established in 2010
Lyft established in 2012
Key points of differentiation of Gett and Uber = Gett is still a black-cab service offers lower fixed fares
Type of payment (Apple pay, Paypal, card)
Want a customisable experience
Cheap travel fares (than direct alternative)
Ease of use - digital/app
Convenience/ Quick time of pick up

Book in advance on the app
Instant pick up
Book via other platforms (Facebook messenger, city mapper, google maps etc.)
Type of payment (Apple pay, Paypal, card)
Can see who your driver is
Follow on app where you are going
Read reviews on driver
Encrypted communication between driver and passenger
Recognisable brand worldwide (Holidays)
Strong brand focus on safety
Millennials & Gen Y
Urban areas / cities
Limited human interaction when booking
Physical evidence of booking
Speed of booking, wait and travel time
Cheaper than traditional taxi service
Safety - due to profile info of driver and a car tracking system
Personalised Music Choice
Customer Service Focus - Rating System
Selection of type of Uber (I.e. UberX, UberPool)
Track Spending/Previous Rides
When introducing Uberpool a competition were going to beat them to market. Leaving Uber with a choice, release an unfinished service or wait and perfect the service but loose out on first to market. They chose the former. Releasing an unfinished product could cause low customer satisfaction and ultimately loose out to the competitor who developed a fully functional service. Uber should respond to this by continuously improving the service.
New Proposed Value Proposition
Currently in red ocean, Uber needs to move back into blue ocean
When starting out Uber had a competitive advantage but due to Lyft having the same business model this advantage has gone
Competition copying the business model
Public transport cheaper
Drivers not happy with the high % Uber takes from fares (discourage new drivers)
Legal regulation in foreign markets (i.e. Germany or France)
Increased competition (Gett and lyft )
Increasing number of markets operating in and number of drivers increases fraud and scandals (reputation damage)
Self-driving cars developments (eliminate the need for taxi service)
Elements which could have an impact on Uber's value proposition
