A striking feature of VST is its perfectly built Bidding Architecture that showcases the real-time best offers from different brands in less than 60 seconds. Once the customer post his/her travel need through the VST app, the company forwards this requirement directly to available service providers based on the proximity of the user and the category of vehicles post which the response is taken in less than 30 seconds and posted to the user in 60 seconds. At last, the confirmation from the user is collected and passed on to the service provider, there by assuring the ride. In case of any
failure from the service providers, VST allocates other near by providers to ensure quality service.
