)-- A1 Cabco Taxis, announced today that customers with iPhones and iPads will be able to book a taxi using their new App. The App has been developed by Cordic who also provide A1 Cabco’s Computerised Booking & Despatch solution.
The A1 Cabco Taxis App by Cordic allows passengers to book a taxi from A1 Cabco Taxis. Using the App, passengers can:
Pay by cash or card
Get a Quotation for their journey
Make a booking
Check its status
Cancel a booking
Track the vehicle on a map
Manage their previous bookings
Manage their favourite addresses
The app includes a vehicle tracking map which allows customers to wait indoors watching their car arrive on their iPhone, making it much a much safer option than waiting for a car in a street late at night.
Carly Stewart, Director of A1 Cabco Taxis said, “The app is a declaration that we are constantly committed to providing customers with the best service and leading technology. We believe that customers will see the benefit of being able to track their vehicle, giving them the comfort of knowing it is 'just around the corner' as they can see its progress on the live tracking map.”
The A1 Cabco Booking App should appeal to Cambridgeshire’s Smartphone generation who are au fait with technology and Apps, booking a taxi using the App will hopefully become as familiar to them as updating their Facebook status.
“With Smartphones commonplace in today’s society and mobile applications being used for all manner of tasks and activities, we decided that there was a market there for an App to book and track a taxi. The App also saves a firm valuable time and leaves operators free to take bookings over the phone,” commented Fara Arani, Commercial Director Cordic.
Danielle Kinsella, Marketing Manager Cordic, said, “Apple Staff recently chose the Cordic iPhone Booking App as a 'Staff Favourite,' we’re hoping that A1 Cabco Taxis’ app will also generate similar interest and become a favourite method of booking a taxi for people in and around Cambridge.”
