We’re excited to announce the release of Faxi 4.0 mobile app. In the new version, we’ve made some major usability improvements, so as to simplify and streamline the entire journey sharing process. With our journey sharing and verification flows significantly improved, it has never been easier to share a journey with Faxi:
These are some big changes that may seem daunting to experienced users, but we’re certain they will greatly improve your journey sharing experience. To help the transition, we’ve prepared a detailed overview of the changes and a step-by-step guide on how to get your next shared journey started. With the help of these materials, you can start enjoying our improved journey sharing process immediately!
Our main goal is to make your journey sharing experience simple and straightforward. We’ve carefully analysed your feedback and designed a flow that removes complexity and confusion.
Let’s delve into some specific changes Faxi 4.0 brings!
With the ‘Create carpool’ option gone, there will be no more planned journeys. This effectively means that Faxi will no longer start any of your journeys automatically. Instead, when you’re ready to start sharing your journey, tap on ‘Start journey’ and start it yourself!
It’s no longer necessary to update your schedule and worry about irregular shifts. After you have arranged to share a journey with people from your organisation, click on ‘Start journey’ when you’re ready to go and connect with them along the way! Our ‘Journeys’ tab will show your previous journeys and details of an ongoing journey.
It’s never been easier to switch between the driver and the passenger role! You’ll have the option of choosing your role once you start the journey – once you’ve done this, Faxi will search for people nearby you can connect with!
The new process reduces the amount of time a driver spends on the phone. All they have to do is start the journey, after which it is up to the passengers to select the driver they would like to share with. Of course, the driver always has the option of accepting or refusing a passenger. This will allow you to agree on a suitable pick-up point and connect with people along your route.
With our new verification process, your shared journey will get verified every time, making you eligible for potential employer rewards and incentives each time you carpool. Even if connecting via Bluetooth is not possible, you can now add people to your journey via code.
As a bonus improvement, we’ve reduced the number of notifications an average user receives. You can say goodbye to excess notifications reminding you of the journey you’ve planned. If you choose to minimize your app while driving, we will update you on the progress of your journey.
We have retained everything you loved about our platform – including search capabilities and our interactive map, making slight modifications to make it easier for you to find suitable carpoolers.
Additionally, we’ve made it possible to connect to people nearby, ensuring the verification of each shared journey and improved our messaging system.
Journey sharing has never been easier or simpler!
a. As a driver, start the journey before heading off. After that, you’ll no longer need to interact with your phone, meaning your drive becomes much safer.
b. As a passenger, start the journey once you get in the drivers’ car and tap on their profile to select them as your driver.
Don’t worry if you experience some Bluetooth connection issues. Simply ask your driver to scan the code in your app and you’ll be added to their journey, guaranteeing journey verification.
Get your journeys verified and qualify for any potential carpooling incentives your organisation is offering. Make sure that your Location, Bluetooth and Mobile Data services are turned on for the duration of your journey, so that it can be verified.
