MARKETING PLAN
 With a few taps on the Olacabs application on any of the android-based phones, users can call
a cab
 One of his ambition is to be able to deliver a cab within 20 minutes from the time of booking.
 Company also make use of demographic details while evaluating a region. The demand
visualisation is done on a daily basis, so that accordingly we can have our cabs in areas where
demand is high at specific hours
 Company has focused on creating a technology platform that will act as an umbrella for small
car rental firms
 Olacabs is addressing point-to-point cab services, outstation cab services and full-day rental
services. Olacabs have been successful in getting 600 suppliers on board with 1,000 cabs in
Mumbai.
 The company claims to do 2,000 bookings on a daily basis. We want to take this to 3,000 per
day by the end of this month.
 The new service will offer the same starting fare as autorickshaws, that is, Rs 13 per km but with a base
fare of Rs 100 for the first six kms, making it the cheapest AC cab service available in the city.
• With Ola the customer has a hassle-free commute. With the touch of a button, a cab comes to your
door, takes you where you need to go. Not a single word, you pay your fare at the end and go.
• Taxi aggregation company Ola cabs on Tuesday launched its low cost service called Ola Mini
across three cities and flagged off a new 'Business Class' service Ola Prime, across six major
metros.
• Ola will offer AC compact cars like Tata Indica, Vista and Ford Figo under the Ola Mini service.
Customers can book the cabs online by calling Ola’s call center or through the Ola mobile app.
• With Ola Mini, customers will also get the usual cutting edge services like the ability to book and
track the cab through their mobile phones, e-mailed receipts, accurate meter and well trained
professional drivers.
• The 3-year old company has launched Ola Prime, a business class service for customers with a fleet
that will include cars like Toyota Innova, Skoda Rapid, Honda Civic etc.
• The company has priced Ola Prime between Rs 17 to Rs 20 per km across different cities, almost
similar to the rates that Uber and Meru Cabs are charging in various cities.
• Ola Cabs, mobile application for cab bookings, has partnered with the famous black and yellow
cabs in Mumbai.
 By using the cab, a customer can see all the partnered cabs around him, by entering the location and
confirming the request the drivers in the vicinity will be alerted though the smartphone. Customers have
a option of selecting the normal black and yellow cab or a cool cab.
Making all the difference
 Ola driver can never refuse service to a customer
 When the driver wants to take a break, he has the freedom to turn off the GPS tracker. But, once the
booking is made, he cannot back-out.
 Ola, as a policy, does not ask where a customer wants to get dropped. Be it 100 meters or 100 kilometers,
our goal is to ensure that the customer’s journey from point A to point B
 To help maintain its service quality, the company has put in place quite a few criteria
1) First, the Olacabs team holds an operational and functional level audit to assess if the car is worthy of
being on the road.
2) Secondly, it holds a training session for the drivers, to bring them up to its standards.
3) Thirdly, the Ola team conducts planned and surprise audits from time-to-time, to ensure that the service is
being delivered as per the company’s expectations.
Best practices to build customer satisfaction in a service-oriented business
1.Understand the pain point-Put the customer first: Ensure that the customer is at the centre of
every initiative and his/her experience is delivered to the best of your ability
2. Offer a seamless experience- From the time a customer reaches out to you till he receives his
invoice, makes the payment and shares feedback, the experience should be seamless. For us,
consistency in communication across our web, SMS and e-mail applications helps us achieve this.
3.Take care of your other stakeholders- In our case, the drivers and operators are our
stakeholders and they play a critical role in determining the overall experience.
4. Always action feedback- Slip-ups will happen occasionally. Be quick to accept, resolve and
ensure it never repeats again.
FINANCIAL PLAN
Funding
• Series A funding from Tiger Global of over $ 5 million
• Series B round of funding led by Matrix Partners India for a big minority stake, with participation from
existing investor Tiger Global Management of $20 million
• Series C round of funding led by Hong Kong-based hedge fund manager Steadview Capital and Silicon
Valley-based Sequoia Capital of (Rs 250 crore ) $41.8 million.
• Series D round led by Japanese internet and telecom giant SoftBank of $210 million
• Series E or fifth round of institutional funding, it is back in the market to scoop between $300-500
million more.
• Russian billionaire Yuri Milner’s DST Global and Singapore’s GIC has proposed to fund around
2500 crore Rs on 20th March 2015
REVENUE
• ANI Technologies, which runs Ola Cabs, reported a 50 per cent jump in net loss at Rs 34.21
crore, against Rs 22.80 crore in 2012-13, according to filings with the Registrar of Companies
(RoC).
• Ola Cabs, backed by private equity funds Tiger Global and Matrix Partners, has reported solid
growth. Its Rs 51-crore revenue in 2013-14 was 219 per cent higher than Rs 16 crore the
previous financial year
• The Ola Cab is owned by the driver. For every ride that he makes, he takes the ride value from
the customer. Twenty per cent of the total ride value comes to Ola as commission.
• There is a lot of discounting offered by multiple players on multiple levels. We’ve refrained from
doing this. Occasionally, we take this route (discounting) but those are very limited period offers.
For us, we believe that our drivers are our customers. We need to be serving them and as
entrepreneurs, they need to sustain for themselves.
• Ola Mini (that offers as low as Rs 10 per kilometre) was tested intensively. The revenue the
driver earns by reducing the fare from Rs 13 to 10, is overall about 35-40 per cent more than
what he was getting earlier. This make it very rich and exciting for all the drivers.
ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT
• Olacabs aims to foster entrepreneurship among drivers and operators through its aggregation business
model making transportation economical and efficient for customers in India.
• Ola don’t owe a single car. Every car that we have in the Ola fleet is owned by a micro-entrepreneur, a
driver or an operator.
• Ola has a team size of over 500 people. As of today, it has partnered with over 4,500 operators.
• At Ola, the customer experience is carried forward until a customer reaches his/her destination. At the end
of the day, they expect a fuller consumption cycle and that is what we are trying to deliver.
• It works on a revenue sharing model with the operators, where, depending on the category and size of the
operator, the latter will pay 10 per cent to 20 per cent of each transaction value to Olacabs.
• The company will also be investing in technology to support its data analytics division, which will
enhance customer experience and help drivers plan their inventory better..
.
• There is also a freely downloadable mobile app using which customers can book cabs and monitor their
position by the built-in GPS system
• We have a dedicated customer care centre to address all queries of our customers. Technology
has enabled us to adhere to the 10 minute service level agreement (SLA) which we provide to
all our customers
• We also use ‘heat maps’ to efficiently manage the demand and supply of cabs in various parts
of a city at different points in time.
• The company is also in the process of helping other stakeholders (such as the Government and public at
large) benefit from Olacabs’ traffic heat-maps and pothole detection mechanisms
• Not having our own fleet actually works to our advantage. We only select cars which meet our defined
standards to be a part of our fleet.
• We also conduct regular service audits, train and certify drivers and do thorough background
checks of both operators and drivers before partnering with them.
• The inventory utilisation among small cab operators (ownership of 2-5 cabs) in India is an
abysmal 40-50%. Cab owners benefit from the Ola Cabs network and technology platform and
that in turn helps them procure customers and enhance their income through better inventory
utilisation
OWNERSHIP
Olacabs, founded in January 2011 by two IIT Bombay alumni Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati is
India’s largest aggregator of car rentals and point-to-point cab services. Olacabs integrates car
transportation, be it point-to-point services within a city, hour-based rental services or outstation
travel, onto a technology platform, ensuring convenient, transparent and quick service fulfillment for
the customer. Customers can access Olacabs, on the web, through a mobile app or through a
customer service centre
CRITICAL RISKS & PROBLEM
1. Fix your location tracking- The drivers are unable to reach the pick-up point based on the
GPS / location from the app. Many drivers have complained that they don't get a clear location
or a route map on the apps.
2. Penalize errant drivers- Ola give them a bonus for being online for a certain time daily or
weekly. Therefore, many of the drivers keep their apps turned on even when they are
unavailable to respond to a request. Some drivers refuse to show up when they realize that the
destination is not very attractive to them.
3. Set an example on the roads- While there has been much discussion on improving security /
transparency through better verification of drivers, an equally important expectation from Ola is
that they would follow safe traffic practices. No mobile phone while driving, following speed
limits, obeying traffic lights, using a seat belt, using turn indicators while shifting lanes / turning.
4. Ola cabs stop taking online booking- Olacabs has stopped taking rental booking from all the
Indian cities where it operates. Olacabs has indeed stopped accepting rental bookings, citing
poor demand behind this move.

The demand visualisation is done on a daily basis, so that accordingly we can have our cabs in areas where demand is high at specific hours  Company has focused on creating a technology platform that will act as an umbrella for small car rental firms  Olacabs is addressing point-to-point cab services, outstation cab services and full-day rental services. Olacabs have been successful in getting 600 suppliers on board with 1,000 cabs in Mumbai.  The company claims to do 2,000 bookings on a daily basis. We want to take this to 3,000 per day by the end of this month.  The new service will offer the same starting fare as autorickshaws, that is, Rs 13 per km but with a base fare of Rs 100 for the first six kms, making it the cheapest AC cab service available in the city.
  • 15. • With Ola the customer has a hassle-free commute. With the touch of a button, a cab comes to your door, takes you where you need to go. Not a single word, you pay your fare at the end and go. • Taxi aggregation company Ola cabs on Tuesday launched its low cost service called Ola Mini across three cities and flagged off a new 'Business Class' service Ola Prime, across six major metros. • Ola will offer AC compact cars like Tata Indica, Vista and Ford Figo under the Ola Mini service. Customers can book the cabs online by calling Ola’s call center or through the Ola mobile app. • With Ola Mini, customers will also get the usual cutting edge services like the ability to book and track the cab through their mobile phones, e-mailed receipts, accurate meter and well trained professional drivers. • The 3-year old company has launched Ola Prime, a business class service for customers with a fleet that will include cars like Toyota Innova, Skoda Rapid, Honda Civic etc. • The company has priced Ola Prime between Rs 17 to Rs 20 per km across different cities, almost similar to the rates that Uber and Meru Cabs are charging in various cities. • Ola Cabs, mobile application for cab bookings, has partnered with the famous black and yellow cabs in Mumbai.
  • 16.  By using the cab, a customer can see all the partnered cabs around him, by entering the location and confirming the request the drivers in the vicinity will be alerted though the smartphone. Customers have a option of selecting the normal black and yellow cab or a cool cab. Making all the difference  Ola driver can never refuse service to a customer  When the driver wants to take a break, he has the freedom to turn off the GPS tracker. But, once the booking is made, he cannot back-out.  Ola, as a policy, does not ask where a customer wants to get dropped. Be it 100 meters or 100 kilometers, our goal is to ensure that the customer’s journey from point A to point B  To help maintain its service quality, the company has put in place quite a few criteria 1) First, the Olacabs team holds an operational and functional level audit to assess if the car is worthy of being on the road. 2) Secondly, it holds a training session for the drivers, to bring them up to its standards. 3) Thirdly, the Ola team conducts planned and surprise audits from time-to-time, to ensure that the service is being delivered as per the company’s expectations.
  • 17. Best practices to build customer satisfaction in a service-oriented business 1.Understand the pain point-Put the customer first: Ensure that the customer is at the centre of every initiative and his/her experience is delivered to the best of your ability 2. Offer a seamless experience- From the time a customer reaches out to you till he receives his invoice, makes the payment and shares feedback, the experience should be seamless. For us, consistency in communication across our web, SMS and e-mail applications helps us achieve this. 3.Take care of your other stakeholders- In our case, the drivers and operators are our stakeholders and they play a critical role in determining the overall experience. 4. Always action feedback- Slip-ups will happen occasionally. Be quick to accept, resolve and ensure it never repeats again. FINANCIAL PLAN Funding • Series A funding from Tiger Global of over $ 5 million • Series B round of funding led by Matrix Partners India for a big minority stake, with participation from existing investor Tiger Global Management of $20 million • Series C round of funding led by Hong Kong-based hedge fund manager Steadview Capital and Silicon Valley-based Sequoia Capital of (Rs 250 crore ) $41.8 million. • Series D round led by Japanese internet and telecom giant SoftBank of $210 million • Series E or fifth round of institutional funding, it is back in the market to scoop between $300-500 million more. • Russian billionaire Yuri Milner’s DST Global and Singapore’s GIC has proposed to fund around 2500 crore Rs on 20th March 2015
  • 18. REVENUE • ANI Technologies, which runs Ola Cabs, reported a 50 per cent jump in net loss at Rs 34.21 crore, against Rs 22.80 crore in 2012-13, according to filings with the Registrar of Companies (RoC). • Ola Cabs, backed by private equity funds Tiger Global and Matrix Partners, has reported solid growth. Its Rs 51-crore revenue in 2013-14 was 219 per cent higher than Rs 16 crore the previous financial year • The Ola Cab is owned by the driver. For every ride that he makes, he takes the ride value from the customer. Twenty per cent of the total ride value comes to Ola as commission. • There is a lot of discounting offered by multiple players on multiple levels. We’ve refrained from doing this. Occasionally, we take this route (discounting) but those are very limited period offers. For us, we believe that our drivers are our customers. We need to be serving them and as entrepreneurs, they need to sustain for themselves. • Ola Mini (that offers as low as Rs 10 per kilometre) was tested intensively. The revenue the driver earns by reducing the fare from Rs 13 to 10, is overall about 35-40 per cent more than what he was getting earlier. This make it very rich and exciting for all the drivers.
  • 19. ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT • Olacabs aims to foster entrepreneurship among drivers and operators through its aggregation business model making transportation economical and efficient for customers in India. • Ola don’t owe a single car. Every car that we have in the Ola fleet is owned by a micro-entrepreneur, a driver or an operator. • Ola has a team size of over 500 people. As of today, it has partnered with over 4,500 operators. • At Ola, the customer experience is carried forward until a customer reaches his/her destination. At the end of the day, they expect a fuller consumption cycle and that is what we are trying to deliver. • It works on a revenue sharing model with the operators, where, depending on the category and size of the operator, the latter will pay 10 per cent to 20 per cent of each transaction value to Olacabs. • The company will also be investing in technology to support its data analytics division, which will enhance customer experience and help drivers plan their inventory better.. .
  • 20. • There is also a freely downloadable mobile app using which customers can book cabs and monitor their position by the built-in GPS system • We have a dedicated customer care centre to address all queries of our customers. Technology has enabled us to adhere to the 10 minute service level agreement (SLA) which we provide to all our customers • We also use ‘heat maps’ to efficiently manage the demand and supply of cabs in various parts of a city at different points in time. • The company is also in the process of helping other stakeholders (such as the Government and public at large) benefit from Olacabs’ traffic heat-maps and pothole detection mechanisms • Not having our own fleet actually works to our advantage. We only select cars which meet our defined standards to be a part of our fleet. • We also conduct regular service audits, train and certify drivers and do thorough background checks of both operators and drivers before partnering with them. • The inventory utilisation among small cab operators (ownership of 2-5 cabs) in India is an abysmal 40-50%. Cab owners benefit from the Ola Cabs network and technology platform and that in turn helps them procure customers and enhance their income through better inventory utilisation
  • 21. OWNERSHIP Olacabs, founded in January 2011 by two IIT Bombay alumni Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati is India’s largest aggregator of car rentals and point-to-point cab services. Olacabs integrates car transportation, be it point-to-point services within a city, hour-based rental services or outstation travel, onto a technology platform, ensuring convenient, transparent and quick service fulfillment for the customer. Customers can access Olacabs, on the web, through a mobile app or through a customer service centre CRITICAL RISKS & PROBLEM 1. Fix your location tracking- The drivers are unable to reach the pick-up point based on the GPS / location from the app. Many drivers have complained that they don't get a clear location or a route map on the apps. 2. Penalize errant drivers- Ola give them a bonus for being online for a certain time daily or weekly. Therefore, many of the drivers keep their apps turned on even when they are unavailable to respond to a request. Some drivers refuse to show up when they realize that the destination is not very attractive to them. 3. Set an example on the roads- While there has been much discussion on improving security / transparency through better verification of drivers, an equally important expectation from Ola is that they would follow safe traffic practices. No mobile phone while driving, following speed limits, obeying traffic lights, using a seat belt, using turn indicators while shifting lanes / turning. 4. Ola cabs stop taking online booking- Olacabs has stopped taking rental booking from all the Indian cities where it operates. Olacabs has indeed stopped accepting rental bookings, citing poor demand behind this move.
