Then, Uber for ambulance business will suit you well.

What the heck is Uber for ambulance service?

Uber for ambulances is an app-based ambulance service that allows users to book an emergency vehicle instantly.

How does it work in real-time?

  • Users [both service providers and the customers] register on the app.
  • In case of an emergency, the customer can enter their location or allow the app to find it.
  • And, the app looks for nearby ambulances in that location and matches it with the customer.
  • The customer will send the booking request to the service provider.
  • The service provider will pick up the customer and drop them off at the destined location.

How can you create an Uber-like app for ambulances?

Here're the steps you need to follow to create an app for ambulance services,

  • Figure out the number of applications.
  • Pick features and functionalities for your app.
  • Choose the technology.

3. Technology

For a startup, creating four different applications may cost higher and takes up so much time.

To create an app at a considerably low cost, futuristic technology, and at a faster speed, I'd suggest - Flutter.

Flutter is a UI software development kit proudly presented by Google.

Due to its cross-platform nature, it can be used to create both iOS and Android applications using a single codebase.

Which in turn reduces the app development cost and time.

4. Test and deploy

After the development of your Uber-like app for ambulances, it's time to test and launch it to the market.

Flutter makes testing easy and efficient as it provides the cross-platform capability.

Now you know how to create an app from scratch. Let's get on to the bonus tip as promised.
