Zophop – smart logo ka, smart app

When we sat conceptualizing this video, one of the biggest challenges was to decide on the setting in the script – do we show real-life use cases, do we go in for a bland product feature description or do we do something which is catchy and informational?

None of us have any previous experience in advertising but then that has never stood in the path of creating something that sells right? After numerous brainstorming sessions we came up with the above script, a script which introduces an overconfident character who uses all of the popular apps in the commute segment ( yes, yes we used the real names with a few tweaks). And then the omniscient narrator goes on to tell him why there is absolutely no need to waste space on your phone by using all these apps when in fact there exists an one app solution for all commute related queries.

So while we covered all our use-cases we also highlighted the fact about us being a one place stop for all you need to know about travel. Pretty neat eh?

How to use zophop’s Live Trips and fence

In a previous post we introduced Live Trips which enables users to see buses and trains move in real time on the map and also gives estimated time of arrival to their stops, as shown below :

zophop live trips

 

To enable users to check live trips around them we have introduced the Fence feature. Fence does exactly what the name suggests – a fence is drawn around your current location and this lets you see only those trips which are live around you –

zophop live trips

So instead of all the live trips all over the country you can see only those around you. Clicking on anyone of them will lead you to the corresponding real-time information –

Do you see those small arrows on the right hand bottom corner –

You can adjust the radius within which you want to see the live trips, yes you can set the radius to a maximum of 10 kms –

Once you have Checked – In  your trip becomes live for others who are waiting for your bus or train to see. They can see your bus or train move in real time on a map. Isn’t that just so cool?
