KEY FEATURES

Here is a list with some of the main features for the taxi app suite:

Taxi app: Customer

  • Customers can easily call a taxi from any location, by using the mobile app
  • Only the cars that are in the proximity of the customer are called
  • Once the taxi ride is accepted, customers receive a text message that contains details about the ride
  • The app can also be installed on tablets & interactive kiosks that can be found in public places, such as: airports, hotels etc.

Taxi app: Driver

  • The driver app is used by the taxi drivers to respond to customer calls and communicate with the HQ

  • The taxi driver can see info about other taxi cars that are on the map
  • The mobile app has integration with SMS API, for sending text messages to customers
  • The mobile app automatically calculates the route and cost of the taxi ride

Taxi app: Web

  • TaxiNow can be used by multiple taxi companies, and each company is able to customize its own administrative details (costs, currency, area etc.), along with taxi fleet assets (cars, drivers, customers etc.)
  • Employers can track and access every taxi ride
  • The Company Manager can see video streams from taxi cars
