Gojek clone script? Read before you buy the software ( or you’ll lose Money )

In this article I will be giving you valuable tips on how to choose the best GoJek clone script in the market. Read them carefully. So you DONT REGRET making a wrong choice and loose valuable time & money.

Is there an Open GoJek Clone App Demo?

Most brownie points to the company that has a Public demo of their GoJek clone. One that you can readily check without asking them. This shows confidence in their product. It shows they are not afraid of showing what they have. Well, what is there to hide?

( Just Discovered: Check out this cute Gojek Clone HERE )

Tip: Many development companies, just put up a sales page asking you to contact them for the demo. This is just an age old tactic to get your lead. Once they get your details, you will get continues calls and emails. Mostly convincing you to do the software with them from start.

Is it Business Ready?

What does this mean? Believe me there is a lot of difference between a product being Business ready and just Technology ready. Every App Demo that works when testing, does not necessarily work when you run it as a business. When you check a live Demo, its just a single person testing it. But when you deploy the solution online and run a business, many will use it. Users will be simultaneously opening the app. 95% of the Gojek Clone Demo’s that work perfectly, fail when you run it as a business. Only when a Gojek clone script is ready for use in a real-time market, it is Business ready!

Tip: Ask your GoJek clone developer how many parallel users can the app handle before becoming too slow. It is considered a good solution if it can handle atleast 100 simultaneous users.That is if hundred people are using it at ay point of time.

How many versions have come out?

Ok, we all know that the original Gojek app is a heavily funded company. It has atleast 200+ skilled engineers working on it 24/7.  They have been in the market for the past 7+ years. The app should have gone through hundreds of versions before the one you are seeing now. The point here is, any app is only as good as the number of versions it has come through. When choosing a Gojek clone development company, always ask them the number of versions the clone software has gone through.

Tip: You can easily check how many versions the app has come through in the App store. Also make it a point to ask the developers the ‘change log’. Infact, best is the company that has their GoJek clone code for review on GitHub.


Industry News Update:

Gojek slows down its expansion plans in times of COVID-19

Updated: Jul 23, 2020

The recent layoffs in Indonesia’s two ride-hailing apps Gojek and Grab have forced the start-ups to reassess their pursuit of becoming “super-apps” as the pandemic has pushed them to retire some of their non-core businesses, experts have said.

Starting their businesses as ride-hailing applications, both Grab and Gojek have been racing to become apps that meet all users’ needs. They now offer various services from passenger transportation and food and goods delivery to financial services and hotel and ticket booking.

“The COVID-19 pandemic will force both Grab and Gojek to reorganize and focus on three core services: ride-hailing, food/grocery delivery, and financial services,” Fitch Solutions wrote in a research note on Thursday.

On June 16, Grab, which is valued at US$14 billion, announced that it would lay off 360, just under 5 percent, of its region-wide employees due to the pandemic. The Singapore-based company, which is present in eight Southeast Asian countries, said it would “be eliminating non-core projects” without elaborating further.

A week later, its rival Gojek did a headcount cut of 430 workers, around 9 percent of its total workforce, as the company aims to focus on its ride-hailing, food delivery, e-payment, and logistics businesses.

Fitch Solutions projected the companies would gradually exit low-margin services, such as hotel and ticket booking, and put more focus on their respective financial service solutions since they have competitive advantages as early adapters of e-wallets.

“We expect Grab and Gojek to also scale back on discounts in order to become profitable, especially so as investor funding could potentially slow amidst weaker global economic activity,” researchers at Fitch Solution wrote in the note, adding that despite rapid growth, both companies were unprofitable in 2019.

Gojek announced earlier this month that American tech companies Facebook and PayPal had invested an undisclosed amount in its new round of funding while Grab at the time was vying for one of two Singapore digital banking licenses set to be allocated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore in this year’s second half.

Indonesia ICT Institute executive director Heru Sutadi said the decision was part of the companies’ survival strategy while they were evaluating their services as the COVID-19 pandemic severely affected the core ride-hailing business.

“In normal times, start-ups do aim to become an all-in-one service provider, but along the way, they will evaluate which services are not relevant to their consumers,” he told in a phone call on Wednesday.

“There is a possibility that Gojek and Grab will re-hire some of their teams once the economy is stable,” he stressed.

Gojek, which currently operates in five countries in Southeast Asia, plans to close down its lifestyle division GoLife, which includes massage and cleaning services, as well as its food court division GoFood Festival, as both saw a “significant decrease in demand” during the pandemic, according to the company’s press statement following the layoffs announcement.

Both companies reported a downward trend in their passenger transportation services while seeing an uptick in food and grocery deliveries during the social-distancing period.

Venture Capital and Start-up Indonesia Association (Amvesindo) chairman Jefri Sirait, however, was of the view that the two companies would still receive ample funding from their regional and international backers, adding that the companies were agile and big enough to plan for strategic growth in the future.

“It has been four months since the COVID-19 outbreak and they are trying to be sustainable businesses by deciding to cut services that are no longer a source of growth,” he told in a press release on Thursday.

He went on to say that both companies would likely focus on e-payment solutions as it has been a growing sector during the pandemic along with other “meat and potato” sectors such as consumer goods, health care, and communications.

Hopefully, there will be an influx in the number of entrepreneurs starting businesses similar to Gojek using Gojek Clone


Quality stands before quantity

The real Gojek app has around 20+ services integrated inside it. From salt to software, everything you can get in GoJek. A quick review shows it has bike taxi, car taxi, food delivery.  Also you can send anything, book movie tickets, logistics, courier, medicine delivery, payment, cleaner service, deals, massage etc. All these features are by itself a separate business. And all of them were developed over many years by many skilled highly paid engineers. When choosing the GoJek Clone script, make sure that even if it has just 2 services built in…. they work perfectly. As its impossible to build a GoJek like app with all the services even in 1 year time. Most probably a readymade GoJek software that has more than 4 services inside will be prone to many bugs. These you might have not noticed, because you did not spend time testing it inside-out.

Tip: Start your GoJek like business with just one or two services and keep adding more as you grow. You will have more control. Your software will be more stable and solid as you move in this agile approach. Not to mention, the original Gojek platform started with limited services. They kept adding more as they grew.

Fake customer reviews are dime a dozen!

Obviously the first smart thing we tend to do is look at the customer reviews of the company. Did you know that you can get as many reviews you want on Fiverr?. Well, if you are choosing your GoJek Clone app script based on the reviews a company has online – you may be making a big mistake. FYI, these days even competitor companies foul play by leaving fake negative reviews on a good product. Many a times, customers are mislead by fake negative reviews and fall prey to the real scam company. So, what is the best way? I would say, go with the GoJek clone script company offering phone numbers of its previous customers to speak with.

Are the mobile applications native apps?

For those who understand the above question: There are 2 ways in which you can develop mobile apps. Using native technologies ( recommended always) or using hybrid technologies. Since a Gojek Clone App is highly location dependent, make sure the Android apps are done using Native Android Java. And the IOS apps are done using Swift programming language. As other hybrid technologies like React Native, Phonegap etc. have problems with location and Camera related features.

Tip: Ask your Gojek clone script provider on what technology the mobile apps are built on. Check if they are Native apps.

Dont ignore a web presence…

Yes, you read that right. I know its a world of Mobile apps. But remember, that a huge percentage of population intentionally or un-intentionally use the web for searching such on-demand services. Did you know? a majority of Food ordering also happens over the web portals. So, make it a point to also have a web portal for your Gojek clone App script. It should have all the capabilities to enable your customer to easily book services over the web as well. Its all the more better, if your web front is well connected with your GoJek mobile app. And works perfectly in sync.

Tip: One of the biggest advantages of having a web presence is your business getting massive search traffic. Thousands of people in your locality will search online for your services. Having web pages for each food item, service, vendor etc. can reap all this amazing visitors. A link to your GoJek like apps on every page will also easily boost your Mobile App installs.

Looks speak a lot!

If all the above points are met by some GoJek clone script vendors, here is another important point to validate. How good is ‘attention to detail’ in the software? You need to remember setting up an On-demand service software is just step 1. Beyond that you have a big burden of making your customers like your app. Lot many important things impact this. A goJek like app script should have a dashing Splash screen. The App launch icon plays a pivotal role. Even the sound of each notification and how creative it is structured matters a lot. How neat and crisp is the mobile app front end layout? Go with a GoJek Clone app script that stands out in all these fronts.

Tip: Most of the UI and UX elements are available on online marketplaces like Theme Forrest etc. ( Also checkout this UX suite provided for a Gojek Clone App ). Ask your Gojek clone development company if their apps are modular. Is it engineered to add the templates from these marketplaces quickly. A software that is architected to easily integrate with open source add-ons is considered a good one!

Conclusion:

Gojek is the talk of the town. This incredible super app has a plethora of services integrated. With proliferation in the number of apps for each different service, Go-Jek is a boon for its users. With one app in your mobile, you can order and get a myriad of services to your doorstep. Not just your doorstep, it gets delivered anywhere you are. There are many entrepreneurs and businesses across the globe that would want to develop an app like GoJek. But obviously developing such a super app from start would involve a lot of time and money. This is where a ready-made GoJek clone script would be very handy.

FAQ:

Is a Gojek like Multiple Services App an easy business model?

Before answering the above question, I would would like first ask if you have the bandwith to run so many types of services? The reason I ask this is, in our experience we found that just running one of the on-demand service is tiresome. In my opinion, I feel that you would need to first start by having one service ( maybe Food delivery -or- courier etc. ). Yes, a ready-made gojek clone script will have many built in. It would be easy if you can take up any one and execute it. As you gain popularity for that one service, keep adding more. Gojek is able to pull it off as it has a huge execution budget and funding to support.

Which among the services offered in any Gojek clone is most profitable?

Anything with a burning need for the normal man. I would say the top 3 would be: Taxi, Food and Courier. Out of these three, I think the taxi component is the most required for anyone. So, it would be good to keep the app facing feature as transport. If a Gojek clone is built by integrating services to the taxi component, the architecture would be good. As any on-demand service would require a transportation service from point A to B.
