Posted on March 4, 2019 By Ankit Virani

Discover the advantages of developing Go-Jek Clone App that integrates multiple services on a single platform.

The new face of ride-hailing coming up in Asia is a startup named Go-Jek. It is a startup from Jakarta in Indonesia and it specializes in ride-hailing and logistics. It is the first unicorn company and the only company from South East Asia which is included in Fortune’s 50 companies.

How was Go-Jek born and what was its motto?

The name Go-Jek comes from “Ojek” motorbike taxis which are found all over Indonesia. It was founded in 2010 by Nadiem Makarim with just 20 motorbike drivers.
Nadiem worked at McKinsey and CO. consulting for three years before starting Go-Jek. Go-Jek started in a tiny call center with only 20 Ojek drivers, who later became the recruiters. Nadiem was a frequent traveler in Ojek. He soon understood that the Ojek drivers spend most of their time in waiting for their customers and the customers waste time walking around looking for an available Ojek.
Go-Jek was built to solve this problem where it provided a platform where the drivers and the riders can connect efficiently. This allowed drivers to improve their income. Go-Jek’s mission was to improve social welfare by ensuring efficiency in the market. First, it was started as a ride-hailing phone service but later it evolved to provide on-demand transport and lifestyle services according to the needs of the cities.

The launch of GoJek app and services

With Nadiem’s idea, Go-Jek app was launched in January 2015. The app has more than 130 million downloads despite being in just three markets.

Go-Jek wants to spread positive social impact by increasing the earnings of their partners and drivers ensuring a better standard of living for all. As of May 2018, Go-Jek ’s fleet exceeds 1 million drivers and offers 18 app-based on-demand services. Some of the services provided by them are – Go ride, Go car, Go food, Go med etc. They also have payment services like Go pay, Go bill etc. A few lifestyle improvement services are Go massage, Go clean etc.

Two more upcoming services are related to the online content business which makes them the provider of around 20 on-demand services under one platform.

Go-Jek worldwide

Go-Jek’s first international launch was in 2018 when the Indonesian unicorn company stepped in Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, and The Philippines. They were driven by the spirit of using technology for the benefit of humans across the globe. They aim to improve the quality of the customer’s life by providing a solution to everyday frustration.

They want to expand the transportation, food delivery, services on demand, payments and financial services that they are currently providing in Indonesia to all over the world. The expansion market in different countries is currently at different stages. Go-Viet – the Vietnamese service offers food delivery and motorbike taxis, Get in Thailand operates motorbike taxis and in Singapore, Go-Jek is currently providing the four-wheeled ride-hailing services.

All their services are active in around 204 cities with 2 million drivers and 400,000 merchants out of which majority of them are in Indonesia.

Go-Jek turning into a brand

According to a report in TechCrunch, as of February 2019, the estimated value of Go-Jek is about $10 billion dollars. It ranks in the top 10 most powerful brands in Indonesia and also in the top 3 most powerful transportation and logistic brands.

It is currently planning to raise $2 billion from the investors to give a tough competition to Grab in South East Asia. The report also stated that Go-Jek has raised $ 1.5 billion from the investors like Chinese internet giant Tencent, Meituan and, as well as Google, Allianz and Singapore sovereign fund Temasek. According to TechCrunch, Go-Jek has made the first close of its series F round at $9.5 billion valuations.

The three Go-Jek pillars that helped it to grow this big are – speed, innovation, and social impact.

Go-Jek Competitors

In transportation, food delivery, logistics, and many other such businesses, most parts of the world are conquered by Uber and Uber-like apps. Denying Uber’s popularity is a great mistake someone in the same business can make.

However, as Go-Jek is just spreading its slowly in Indonesia and South East Asia. As of now, the toughest competition it faces is from Grab which became a top dog after buying Uber’s local business. It claims to have 130 million downloads and has recently crossed 3 billion rides. According to TechCrunch, its series H round could reach $5 billion.

Go-Jek shortcomings which you need to avoid while developing a GoJek clone app

Like every other startup, Go-Jek is facing some loopholes in deploying its services.

It claims to have completed over 2 million trips in the last two months in Thailand. And it claims to have more than 20,000 merchants for food services on its platform. However, the customers are facing a lot of issues as the restaurants listed in the app do not showcase the menu and the customer has to input the dish and price which makes using the app much complicated.

The customers have also complained about the loopholes in the transport sector as the cars arrive late or the booking is not shown properly.
