How Roadcast Is Different –
They have a twofold advantage in the market that gives them the edge over others. When it comes to B2C, they are the only two-way tracking solution available for consumers, there is no other such service available in the market as of now. And if we talk of B2B, again they have a monopoly, as they are the only mobile based solution available for businesses and there is no one to challenge them.
They are currently in the bootstrapped phase.
RoadCast caters not just to individual travels on their way but it also provides a similar service to corporates with its commercial tools for businesses that deal in logistics and transport to track vehicles and employees & schools to track their school transport & allow access to parents for their convenience. Essentially, RoadCast not only lets people share their journeys in real-time with their friends but is also a great tool to make group travel & individual travel safer, more organized & convenient.
PLAN OF ACTION
They have already reached about 1000 downloads on both Android and Apple store. In the B2B market, the company has already joined hands with big brands like Agarwal Packers & Movers, Incessant Strategic Research Firm – the consulting company for Glaxo Smith Klein, Westech Securities Pvt. Ltd. – a New Delhi-based security agency, to name a few & has various big NCR based schools as their prospective clients.
With Roadcast, their aim is to create a one of it’s kind Social Travel app for sharing travel stories & journeys. Share routes, itineraries, pictures, live video streams, blogs & much more.
