TaxiStartup was created in order to help the whole taxi industry to boost its effectiveness and become at least a bit closer to what we call an ideal. It’s really surprising how far from modern technologies and knowledge still are some (we’re trying not to say “most”) processes in that sphere.
So, imagine a “taxi”. And then think for a while what associations that word would bring to minds fifteen, twenty, thirty years ago? We are sure that these two would have very much in common, and the differences would be held in such sketchy details as car types and models, drivers’ clothes and all of that kind. And THIS is a problem. Calling a cab is still (in some ways we are going to mention) way too complicated and looks like some kind of a lottery. What taxi company to choose, what kind of car will wait for you outside and how pleasant will the driver be? Are you sure his thoughts on how expensive your trip is going to be will suit your take on this topic? And what about his musical taste? Does that guy know the city at all?!
We’ve decided to make it quick and easy for taxi-companies to start working according to what we call the standards of a new digital era. We provide ready-made solution which gives all these companies a possibility to start using all the advantages of modern times.
This solution is TaxiStartup.
TaxiStartup is a product provided on Software as a Service basis available both under TaxiStartup brand or as a white labeled software. This is probably the easiest way any taxi company can get their own branded passenger and driver apps for Android, iOS and Blackberry so far. And more of that: we are ready to cooperate and make an integration with other apps or your current dispatch system.
TaxiStartup is a complex solution in which every part works perfectly with another, and these parts are:
1. Full scale dispatch solution.
It helps to track active cars and information about their availability as well as to run the whole thing effectively. Due to neat and thought over design and functionality dispatchers can increase their productivity, remaining calm at the same time.
2. Client’s application
This is the exact thing which will give your client all the answers to the questions mentioned above driver’s rating and reviews feature is the key. The application allows clients to choose a cab located nearby and shows it’s locations on the map as it comes. As well as gives a possibility to check out what the price of the trip is going to be while waiting. That’s quite handy, isn’t it? This is the way we let the “lottery”-feeling go and this is how the clients become satisfied and happy, which is definitely a great step towards the future of the Taxi.
3. Driver’s application
Every driver will be able to get some info about the client, the distance and the route to client’s place calculate the trip price in advance. Again, this will more and more often become a direct “dialougue” while dispatchers’ function becoming to observe and control the situation. Furthermore, we are working on making it possible to pay for your ride with credit card and for the drivers to receive credit card payments via driver’s application. That is how we try to make taxi companies’ employees happy with their work and clients - with their life.
Existing taxi, limo, shuttle and other transportation companies can be offered lots of options, like full app branding and half-a-year free subscription for those who use natural gas and electricity in their cars, same for hybrids. We’d like to put your attention to the fact that our system operates cab fleets in a way which makes it possible to get rid of at least a part of unwanted and useless cabs movements, that leading to costs optimization and reducing traffic without losing clients. According to our research, this builds as much as 25% drop in emissions too.
So, we are not offering a number of unrelated solutions we’ve created a real ecosystem, every single element of which works just perfect with another and enables not only to boost the performance of any existing taxi business but to open a new one effectively and quickly.
Which makes TaxiStartup a great partner for those who are into starting a taxi business.
