Idea

Tankerwala is a mobile application to solve the shortfall of water supply infrastructure in developing nations. It enables a user to book a water tanker on demand similar to uber for cabs.

Current Status

The Tankerwala app has over 10,000 downloads and over 20 bulk water consumers that order for water regularly. The company has clocked revenues of over USD 50,000 in Beta-testing phase

Problem or Opportunity

Suppliers
• Inconsistent demand during non-peak season, leading to loss of business
• Pilferage of margins due to unawareness of commission taken by the drivers at the
time of delivery
• Constant price negotiations with customers
• Loss of time due to inaccurate directions or trouble while navigating to customer
location Customers
• Deliveries not being made on time or not available when required
• No assurance with respect to water quality
• Unfair and inconsistent pricing and high premiums charged in peak seasons
• Unpleasant experience while coordinating with the driver

Solution (product or service)

For Customers, Tankerwala is the most convenient way to book tanker-
• PIN code based fixed pricing ensuring price uniformity
• On-demand delivery within 90 minutes
• Real time status update of tankers with location information and driver details
• Flexible payment options: card/UPI/Wallet
Simple UI that is graphically designed for quick decision making and guides drivers with language barriers
• Real-time dashboard for seamless fleet management
• Hassle-free delivery with GPS navigation
• Electronic fund transfer directly to the supplier’s bank account
• Ability to set own pricing

Business model

Tankerwala onboards water suppliers across the city with a negotiated fixed price for year. This price is marked-up by 10%-15% and sold to the consumers ordering on the app/call. Users pay upfront and the company pays the suppliers every fortnight.
