Uber, one of the largest applications on mobile devices today and now one of the fastest growing companies around the world has announced that they are moving forward with big plans in the new year. The ambitious expansions which’ll be coming in the upcoming weeks will include carpooling, food delivery and even health care. If this was to become the case, then Uber would more than likely effect two other industries greatly.
Uber already has dominated over the taxi industry, sending shockwaves throughout this global industry via UberX which allows for users to connect to other users, request a drive from someone nearby for a fee that would be less than traditional cabs. The same would apply with food delivery, anyone would be able to request any kind of food to be delivered to their residence for a smaller fee then a regular delivery service which is roughly $10-$15.
Health care wise, Uber will only be allowing for those whom are registered paramedics via their country to operate in this sector of the company. They’ll also be required to have a variety of different medicine equipment with them in order to ensure the users safety. Users of this application will only be able to request a medical ride for a variety of conditions, anything serious such as a heart attack of seizure would still require an Medical Services Vehicle on location from the local hospital.
None the less these advances will allow Uber to continue to make themselves a branded and recognized name as a valuable service.
