Note: You will be referring to this completed assignment later in the Week 3 assignment.
For this assignment, you are a business IT consultant. You have been contracted by a nationwide taxi service called Carz. The company is looking to modify its service delivery to be more competitive. They want you to examine the feasibility of adopting elements of the Uber® and Lyft® delivery services, and produce a business process re-engineering plan.
One of the proposals already being considered is incorporating a web chat interface to entice web-savvy prospective customers to self-schedule taxis (in addition to traditional telephone and email requests). However, the customer pay interface is still the traditional system, fully dependent on drivers/operators calling in to the central booking system office when rides are over and are available for the next pickup. You, as the consultant, will evaluate the proposed addition and also your own modifications to the business process.
Management will consider any recommendations, such as incorporating specific, isolated elements of Ubers and Lyfts service model to a complete changeover from Carzs traditional taxi service to an Uber- or Lyft-type peer-to-peer model.
To complete this assignment:
Research service models employed by Uber and Lyft.

A recommendation for adding an Uber- or Lyft-inspired element to Carz traditional service model.
