On Demand Businesses 101

Become the next Uber of Everything: Diversify your On-Demand Business

Disruption of on demand economy can be majorly seen in three industries: transportation, food and logistics. Transportation is predicted to touch $100 billion mark by 2020. The digital logistics is forecasted to be worth $12.96 billion by 2020 while online food delivery has an opportunity to hit the $210 billion market. In every on demand business vertical, leading companies claim to be the Uber of their niche. Establishing itself as the Taxi king, Uber has already conquered ride-hailing niche. With a vision to Uberize the world, Uber is not just focusing on transporting humans but online food ordering as well as logistics management.

Realizing food industry as the next big disruption in on demand economy, Uber made its entry into online food delivery with UberEats. UberEats was first launched in 2014 covering 10 cities and has now expanded to 58 cities. Online food delivery model is completely different from ride hailing model. Chetan Narain, Product Manager, in one of his interviews mentioned “As we learned, we realized our ambitions for what UberEats could become was far larger than this app that we’d built for transportation”.

The Uber of Everything

The Uber of Everything

Understanding the psyche of customers of F&B industry, UberEats went through a lot of transitions. Their designer researched how customers in various cities used an app for food ordering. As an observation, she found out that people want quicker turn around in lunchtime whereas they are ready to wait longer for dinner.

Looking at the prevalent issues of online food industry, Allen Narcisse, General manager of UberEats said, said “What we found is that even if someone is willing to pay $45, $50, $60 for that delivery, they generally find it unsatisfactory. Restaurants are also unsatisfied with the fact that we’re taking a product that they put a lot of love into and delivering it in a way that’s just not satisfactory.”

Thus, Uber decided not to deliver food outside a certain proximity.

Evidently, Uber had been observing and learning to make UberEats what it is today.

Considering its late entry into online food delivery as an advantage, UberEats did it the right way

-Restricting restaurants to show up in a delivery radius in which it is feasible to deliver orders without compromising the quality.

-Focusing on pricing transparency more than round the clock availability of food.

-Rating food with simpler thumbs up or thumbs down because 3 star pizza or 4 star pizza does not make much sense.

With introduction of on demand deliveries provided by UberRush, it became Uber for everything.

Myths About Online Business That You Should Never Believe

Myths About Online Business

You have a business or you have come up with an awesome new product idea, and you are thinking to take it to an online platform. Your family and friends have given you thumbs up, but you are still far from launching an online business. You are scared about financing, building a website and keeping up with the marketing. It seems strange to think about these things at an early stage.

Forget about all the things because starting an online business nowadays is very easy and simple. But it is also necessary to know myths about online business that you should never believe.

1. You can only start an online business with a lot of capital:

Small business owners fear to start an online business because they think that a lot of capital will be needed to start an online business. People around confuse them by telling false things about online business or some companies charge a lot of money for taking their business online.

2. Less Work, More Income:

This is never true, as you are working for yourself, not for someone else, you need to work more and more, you are establishing your brand. If you are working hard, income will boost with time. Suppose you are running a grocery store and you are not gaining much profit in it. If you take that business online your scalability will increase, you will have freedom of working, you can work from where you want, you will have access to wide market- like if you have an offline store only people living nearby to your store will purchase goods from you, but if you take that offline store to online, then people living far from your store can also order from your shop.

3. A lot of money is spent on Advertising:

This is the biggest myth in everyone’s mind that one needs to spend a lot of money on advertising the business. But they don’t know the strategy to advertise. People want their business to run worldwide, but they should advertise and make their business popular in the region they live in. Suppose you are a restaurant owner and planning to start an online business, so you should only advertise your business in the region you live if you start getting a good response and establish yourself in the market then you should plan to expand your business. There are a lot of companies that do advertising for you. Yelo not only makes app/website for your business but also promotes and advertises it for you.

4. App/Website for their business only could be got through freelancers:

Small business owners don’t have much idea about the online business, they don’t even know from where to get the App/Website ready for their business. They approach freelancers or people around who fool them and ask them for a lot of money. Nowadays there are a lot of platforms where App/Website for business can be created, where you can list your shops and you will also get the admin dashboard in which you can track the activities of the customers like orders and payments. You can get your app/website ready with Yelo today.

5. Starting an online business all by yourself is too difficult:

As small business owners don’t have much idea about online business, they think that it’s very difficult to start an online business. But they don’t know that they are an only single click away from launching their online business. There are platforms where you just need to register yourself and tell them what customizations do you need in your App/Website. Rest everything they will do. Just a little research on the market is required. Check what people already in the same business segment are doing.

6. Buying domain name and hosting are difficult:

There is nothing like that. Nowadays there are a lot of platforms offering domain and hosting at a very cheap price. All you need to do is simply search the domain that you want, if the domain name is available then you can buy it or they will suggest you the best options available. Else there are platforms like Yelo where they will get everything ready for you like website with domain name and hosting.

These are the myths that you should never believe. Online business is growing day by day. If you have a good business plan, just don’t think twice and go for it. Yelo from Jungleworks is the best and most affordable platform where you can take your business online in minutes.

Driver Retention Strategies

Driver Retention Strategies

In the logistics business drivers are the most important assets. It is quite obvious that obtaining a new set of drivers is far more costly than retaining your existing lot. A common and constant battle the drivers face is striking the balance between long working hours and being away from their families, hence making it very difficult for drivers to stick around for the long term. Studies show that the transportation industry is in the midst of a driver shortage, and to make the scenario worse, driver retention and satisfaction is low. Meaning, business owners are facing a scarcity of satisfied drivers and hence are not able to meet the customer demands. This is where the Route planning software comes to the rescue, it not only helps to better manage your fleet but also can be applied to form up some Driver Retention Strategies.

Better route planning means better management and happier drivers, here are the reasons:

1. Minimizes on-the-way stress: 

Since it is really a tedious and hectic job to manually map the routes for the drivers, not just troublesome but quite ineffective. The route optimization software makes the best use of the driver’s time, so they are free to focus on the road, without worrying about any other factors.

2. Drivers don’t have to worry if they are following the best route:

With the help of route optimization software drivers constantly receive instruction from the transportation office for any special activity during the delivery. Since the software is well equipped with dynamic path optimization, traffic conditions, etc the drivers reap the benefits and have to worry less.

3. Drivers do not face the risk of missing appointments:

The software makes the route plans more realistic and achievable thus drivers do not have to worry about an appointment. Since the route optimization software takes several factors into consideration like drop-off hours, traffic, road conditions and pre-arranged deliveries, which makes it far more likely that drivers will end their shifts on time.

4. Combats the problem of driver shortage:

When routes are planned electronically, drivers receive an efficiently planned route that helps in locations, arrival time and more, making drivers working lives easier. The software also plans the rides in accordance with the driver’s ease like- planning a ride for a particular driver in his own city only unless there is an emergency which in-turn makes his life easier.

Wrap Up:

Before making any bonus decisions you also have to consider the opinions of your drivers and figure out what’s important to them. And no! money isn’t always the answer. Regarding route planning and optimization, if you take some time to listen to your driver’s suggestions then not only it will pave the way for creating a bonus system that your drivers will truly love, but also your driver will feel appreciated and will be grateful to you for treating him as a human and not just a statistic.

Fleet Telematics

As a kid when I rode my bicycle down the street, my mom would warn to cut down my pocket money if I dared to drive fast as she had a small device that could monitor me! Shit, I could have won the ‘Le Tour de France’! But today that has become a reality. Technology has empowered us to that extent. Fleet telematics is one of the gifts that we have received.

Fleet Telematics

Introduction:

Fleet Telematics – this technology is not so much known to the general mass. The term “Fleet telematics” is a combination of two words – telecommunications and informatics. Since its introduction over 15 years ago, business telematics has been regarded as a useful tool for vehicle tracking and getting insights about how long journeys have taken.

The whole process of starting from vehicle scheduling, maintenance, driver tracking, and vendor payment is quite tedious and challenging but hail to the technology-driven era that we live in. Technology has transformed the business operations and fleet telematics is into excellent use. Businesses are using telematics data to collect real-time information like vehicle location, fuel consumption, mileage, speed of the vehicle, rash driving, emergency situations and much in order to reduce the involved cost, improve safety and productivity.

How does it actually work: 

Fleet Telematics

There is a tracking device, not the one my mom had! But a real one which components of- a GPS antenna, a SIM card, and an accelerometer. The device uses cellular networks to transmit location and other vehicle data back to the servers. These servers are usually hosted by the fleet telematics provider. 

Process:

The data is stored in these servers which is accessible from any location provided the device has an active internet connection. The GPS antenna detects the location of the vehicle, the road you are traveling on, and even the speed you are traveling. The accelerometer detects if the vehicle is involved in an accident. Not only this but some intelligent algorithms even detect incidents like harsh braking, tailgating, hard acceleration, and cornering.

Industries which can benefit:

  • Vehicle Insurance- the companies or say the vehicle provider for that matter can monitor your driving and charge you accordingly.
  • Warehouse management- The vehicles of a warehouse transporting the inventory can be monitored for safety.
  • Trucking companies:  one of the key industries that use fleet tracking to reduce costs and maintain regulatory compliance. Fleet Trax helps improve driver safety by monitoring for rapid acceleration, hard turns, aggressive braking, seat belt use, and other issues.

Benefits of using Fleet Telematics: 

  1. Reduction in operational costs: Cutting down the wastage of time by route optimization of the vehicles, directing the drivers to preferred fuel vendors, etc. The consumption of fuel gets reduced significantly. Surveys tell that more than 80 percent of field service businesses that use telematics save on fuel expenses. With fuel costs being the most significant expense, identifying and reducing excessive fuel usage is crucial to overall efficiency and profitability. Telematics does this through route optimization, cutting down on idle time, and detecting unauthorized vehicle use. Fleet telematics can also help you reduce fuel costs by alerting you to driver behavior.
  2. Optimize vehicle performance: The installed device in the vehicle can alert about engine problems and other diagnostic issues while informing routing centers when a vehicle is out of service.
  3. Increased efficiency: Real-time communication coupled with route optimization can divert drivers away from road delays and toward high-priority loads. Adding even a few minutes of driving time to each driver’s daily hours of service (HOS) can boost overall fleet utilization.
  4. Increased productivity: Advanced automotive telematics systems will enhance your drivers’ productivity by helping to reduce vehicle idle time, improve routing, and ensure vehicle safety. Tracking maintenance can leverage you greatly, you will not be able to run your business efficiently if vehicles are off the road due to unscheduled maintenance. Fleet management software can help you be proactive with preventive maintenance.
  5. Increased safety: With the Telematics you can monitor the drivers and warn them for rash driving, not following the traffic rules. This will not only prevent your vehicle from wear and tear but also provide you productive hours.
  6. Enhanced customer experience: Real-time vehicle location, on-time delivery, and accuracy will reduce the chances of errors and in-turn increase customer satisfaction and will provide a better experience.

Wrap Up:

Businesses that ignore the varied capabilities of fleet telematics may find it difficult to keep up with their competitors. By using this technology Businesses will not only grow at an exponential rate but also will stay ahead of the curve.

NPNT Compliance

What is NPNT Compliance?

NPNT or ‘No Permission – No Take-off” is a software program that enables every RPA (except Nano) to obtain valid permissions through digital sky platform before operating in India.

Why NPNT Compliance?

  • Due to the Security threats that drones can possess, as they come in all shapes and sizes ranging from nano to large.
  • To regulate the drones properly as they not allowed in the red zones and no-go areas like within 5km of airports, military facilities and within 5km of Vijay Chowk in Delhi.
  • In the worst scenario, If an NPNT compliant drone tries to breach geo-fencing, the in-built software will compel the drone to return-to-home (RTH).
NPNT Compliance

No Permission No Takeoff

NPNT requires all manufacturers to implement firmware & hardware changes that only allow flights authorized by DGCA to physically take-off.

No drone will be able to fly without first specifying to the DGCA its:

  •  Intended flight envelope
  •  Time of flight 
  •  Pilot credentials

Many countries today are using NPNT one such example is Canada they have made their ‘Safety Assured Flight Envelope’ (SAFE).

How NPNT works?

  • User installs the Digital Sky App provided by DGCA
  • Submit the pilot registration number with all the details of the pilot
  • Submit UAV/drone UIN number with all the details
  • Request for permission before flying
  • UIN, UAOP and the current location is transmitted to the server
  • The server checks whether its green zone, yellow zone or red zone
  • Checks for other exceptional entries for no permission and the UIN, UAOP validity
  • If everything seems OK then the permission is sent with a notification to the user app. 

No Permission No Takeoff is a new concept in all over the world for controlling UAV usage and traffic. This is a part of Digital Sky platform released by DGCA India. The user (pilot) have to register himself(with UAOP) and the drone(with UIN) and then install a mobile app to get permission for each flight just before flying.

Route Optimization: Growing Necessity

Route Optimization – this keyword has been the buzz since last year. Its the process of extracting the most optimal path from one point to another. People often get confused with 2 terms – 1) optimal path 2)shortest path. Not every optimal path needs to be the shortest path and vice-versa. In the 21st century, Route Optimization has become one of the most important factors for the growth of various businesses especially businesses that are into logistics and field services.

Prediction of the optimized route plan depends upon various factors like the location of customers, selection of vehicles, etc. Apart from this, it’s hard for businesses to identify the exact geographic location. This cannot be achieved just by looking into a CRM or a CSV sheet.

This is where Route Optimization Softwares come into the picture. They allow hassle-free route planning and sharing with a single click. This, in turn, enhances productivity, reduces cost and improves the time efficiency of businesses.

Important aspects regarding Route Optimization:

Route Optimization

1) Vehicle-Based Optimization

No matter whether it’s a two-wheeler or four-wheeler, Route Optimization Software maps a route and optimizes the fleet based on the type of vehicle taking the vehicle’s volume, speed, and efficiency into account.

2) Detection of exact geographic Location

Route Optimizations software can convert the typical textual address into a mapping point on a map and vice-versa. Apart from this, some specific RO software acquires the functionality of mapping ambiguous addresses into distinctive points.

3) Data Inspection

Data Inspection has to be done concerning 3 domains:

a) Riders

b) Customers

c) Time of the Day

From Rider’s domain, we could information about his skills, expertise in delivery, a preferred region of work, etc. From the Customer’s domain, we could get insights about the preferred time slots, any specific instructions, etc. From the Time domain, we could get an idea about the traffic status of a particular region, working or closing hours of any building or any organization, etc. RO Software posses the functionality of learning from previous performances and business reports to automate the route planning.

4) Analytics and Reports

RO Software also provides the ability to monitor and manually manage routes. It provides a distinct analytical report of the actual routes vs the planned routes. Through Analytics we can also keep a check on different business hubs.

5) Dynamic Route Modification

RO software can adjust last-minute orders, available vehicles or replan stop sequence automatically. In short, we could coin this as “Re-Routing”.

WRAP UP:

With Route Optimization becoming a genuine necessity for virtually every business operation and routing requirements of companies becoming complex, it becomes imperative that organizations choose their Route Optimization software with utmost care.

FLIGHTMAP – a product of JUNGLEWORKS is such an RO software that could meet up the current business demands. It has an edge over other existing RO software because it has the ability to plan routes intelligently to improve delivery efficiency and reduce operational costs.

Business Analytics VS Business Intelligence

For your business to thrive, you need to know what’s working, what’s not, and how to improve. That much is obvious. But figuring out how to go about it? That’s the tricky part.

The sheer quantity and scope of data produced and stored by your company can make it incredibly hard to peer through the number-fog to pick out the details you need. This is where “Business Analytics” (BA) and “Business Intelligence” (BI) come in: both provide methods and tools for handling and making sense of the data at your disposal.

What about “Business Analytics”?

BA is a catch-all expression for methodologies and innovations you can use to access and investigate your organization’s data, with the end goal of drawing out new, valuable insights to improve business planning and boost future execution. 

Normally, this includes utilizing statistical analysis and prescient demonstrating to build up patterns, making sense of why things are going on, and making an educated guess about how things will work out in the future.

What does “Business Intelligence” Mean?

BI is additionally about accessing and investigating your company’s data. Furthermore, once more, the ultimate objectives are to better understand how the business is getting along, settle on better-educated decisions that improve execution, and make new strategic opportunities for development. 

But in general, BI is increasingly worried about the whats and the hows than the whys. 

BI gives you a chance to apply chosen metrics to potentially huge, unstructured datasets, and covers questioning, data mining, online analytical preparing (OLAP), and reporting as well as business execution observing prescient and prescriptive analytics. 
As it were, both BI and BA are handling similar issues, yet in case you’re working with masses of raw information, you need broad authority over how you utilize that information, and you need to draw out your very own translations and ends from the numbers, the tools and techniques you use will probably fall under BI, rather than BA.

Predictive VS Descriptive

One approach to see this is BI discloses to you what happened, or is happening right now in your business – it depicts the circumstance to you. Not just that, a good BI platform portrays this to you progressively in as much granular, forensic detail you need. 
In this way, BI manages historical data driving right up to the present, and what you do with that data is up to you. Ideally, you’ll gain from past mistakes, expand on past successes, and feed this into your basic leadership going ahead, recreating what works and changing what doesn’t. But fundamentally your ability and judgment are crucial. 
BA predicts what will occur in the future. It joins advanced statistical analysis and prescient demonstrating to give you an idea of what’s in store with the goal that you can foresee advancements or make changes presently to improve results.
The two methodologies are important, just in various ways. It’s important to know whether you are more in need of descriptive analysis, predictive analysis, or both before you invest in a platform. 
For example, it’s great to have an approach to produce predictions about future growth, but if you can’t bore down into the underlying data to understand the basis for these forecasts or change your dashboards to give you precisely the insights you need, you might be constrained in your business planning.

Business Analytics is One Part of Business Intelligence

Another contention is that BA is essentially the client confronting, self-service part of BI – the dashboards and displays. 

Or on the other hand, as Dataversity sums it up: “Business Analytics refers to the development of fitting analytics and BI explicitly for non-technical and business clients.” 

Before, the hard unite of BI must be performed by IT analytics experts, bringing about static reports. Need alternate knowledge or inquiry? You’d have to put in a request. In any case, the rise of self-administration BI implies that with the right platform, non-techies would now be able to utilize front-end tools to create their dashboards and control information on interest utilizing “self-service analytics” – or, as some would have it, BA.

Or is Business Intelligence One Part of Business Analytics?
Confused at this point? How about now: others consider BA to be the entire caboodle – data warehousing, predictive data analytics, information management, reporting, etc, and BI as one strand of that. Seen along these lines, BI is still the “descriptive” some portion of data analytics, yet BA implies BI, also the predictive component, in addition to all the extra bits and pieces that make up how you handle, interpret and visualize the data.

Choosing the Right Tech 
If it’s all just semantics, for what reason does this make a difference? All things considered, for one reason: sooner or later, you have to figure out which technologies, tools, and methodologies you should invest in to get the insights you need.

We could argue over which meaning of BA and BI are most precise for a long time, yet the genuine issue here is that various people use them to mean uncontrollably various things. 
That implies it’s not supportive to frame your buying choice as business analytics versus business intelligence. It’s increasingly imperative to discover what’s going on under the hood than to get hung up on whether a vendor bills their item as BA or BI.
At last, these inquiries will enable you to build up the level of self-service you need, and whether your information requirements are outfitted more towards illustrative or prescient analytics, driving your business the correct way – regardless of the terminology behind the tool.

5 Major Use Cases of NLP in the Healthcare Industry

 Artificial intelligence (AI) is progressively being adopted across the healthcare industry, and probably the most energizing AI applications leverage natural language processing (NLP). NLP is a particular part of AI concentrated on the translation and manipulation of human-produced spoken or written data. In this blog, we describe a couple of promising NLP use cases for healthcare payers and suppliers. We elaborate on a few explicit methodologies and their related applications. Finally, we spread out a contextual case study describing how we have utilized NLP to accelerate benchmarking clinical rules.
NLP poses some thrilling opportunities in the healthcare area to swim through the big amount of records currently untouched and leverage it to improve results, optimize prices, and deliver a higher quality of care. 

The article outlines the elements that are driving the boom and implementation of natural language processing in healthcare, the conceivable benefits of the implementation and the destiny of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the healthcare industry.

Let’s discover further how mature machine learning and AI are implemented inside the healthcare domain, the numerous ongoing and under-scrutiny use cases of NLP in healthcare, and some actual-lifestyles examples where those technologies are improving care delivery.

  1. Comprehending human speech and extracting its meaning. 
  2. Unlocking unstructured data in databases and documents by mapping out essential concepts and values and allowing physicians to use this information for decision making and analytics.

At the outset, when it comes to healthcare, the technology has two use cases:

A majority of all additional instances of machine learning knowledge and NLP in healthcare will sprout out of these two primary functions of the technology.

Use Cases of NLP in Healthcare:

Automated Registry Reporting: Many health IT systems are burdened by regulatory reporting when measures such as ejection fraction are not stored as discrete values. For automated reporting, health systems will have to identify when an ejection fraction is documented as part of a note, and also save each value in a form that can be utilized by the organization’s analytics platform for automated registry reporting.

Enhancement in Clinical Documentation: Machine learning in healthcare has touched scientific documentation, freeing up physicians from the guide and complicated structure of EHRs(Electronic health record), letting them focus more and more on care delivery. This has been viable because of speech-to-text dictation and formulated facts access that capture structures facts on the factor of care. As machine learning in healthcare advances, we will be able to pull pertinent records from different emerging assets and improve analytics used to force PHM and VBC efforts.

Data Mining Research: The integration of data mining in healthcare systems allows organizations to reduce the levels of subjectivity in decision-making and provide useful medical know-how. Once started, data mining an become a cyclic technology for knowledge discovery, which can help any HCO(Health care organization) create a good business strategy to deliver better care to patients.

Prior Authorization: A survey has revealed that payer prior authorization requirements on physicians are increasingly on the rise. These requests increase practice overhead and delay care delivery. The issue of whether payers will agree and authorize reimbursement might not be around after some time, thanks to natural language processing. IBM Watson and Anthem are already working on an NLP module used by the payer’s network to determine prior authorization quickly.

Implementing Predictive Analytics in Healthcare
Identification of high-risk patients, as well as improvement of the analysis process, can be completed through deploying predictive analytics in conjunction with natural language processing in healthcare alongside predictive analytics. 
It’s far essential for emergency departments to have entire information quick, at hand. For e. g., the delay in analysis of Kawasaki diseases leads to important complications in case if it’s far overlooked or mistreated in any manner. As proved using scientific effects, an NLP based set of rules identified at-risk patients of Kawasaki disease with a sensitivity of 93. 6% and specificity of 77.5% compared to the guide overview of clinician’s notes. 
A set of researchers from France worked on developing every other NLP based algorithms that would monitor, detect and save from medical institutions obtained infections (HAI) among patients. NLP helped in rendering unstructured records which changed into then used to become aware of early signs and symptoms and intimate clinicians accordingly.

Final Words
We’re already witnessing a massive amount of crucial app of conversational AI in healthcare, it is vital that NLP is good and in well and truly places to improve healthcare delivery with regards to better scientific decision making and stepped forward patient consequences. The various use cases of natural language processing mentioned here present an opportunity for the healthcare industry to break down vintage silos and plug gaps within the care delivery system to make development for the patient section.
