13 Jul Private Hire Companies in UK towns and cities can upgrade with ease thanks to zoom
Private Hire firms in towns and cities around the UK concerned about being pushed out of the market by large companies have been offered a chance to compete thanks to zoom.taxi and our cloud based app that brings drivers and companies the 21st century technology they and their customers want.
Zoom.taxi is offering companies a two week free trial of their app so they and their customers can see the benefits of being able to compete with the global company which has been spreading into towns and cities throughout the UK.
“We believe that customers would prefer to support their local businesses and keep the market competitive but perhaps have been drawn to other companies because of the ease of booking and pricing,” said CEO Matthew Kendall. “Now, if their local company signs up, they can have the best of both worlds.”
Zoom.taxi provides software to offer solutions for dispatchers, drivers and customers operating in local markets allowing customers to continue to support local businesses but using the latest technology.
“Using customer research we got to the heart of the problem and out of this we developed zoom.taxi to allow private hire companies to compete in a post-Uber world,” said Mr Kendall.
“Customers wanted to know when their taxi was going to arrive which is why they are switching to GPS technology booking systems and our product allows private dispatch companies to fight back and grow.
“We’ve had customers saying they’ve already had new clients coming to them via the app and companies using it to take a new and modern approach to private hire.”
Abdel Karim from Manchester Taxi Service said he had already had new customers and was expecting each one of his 100 cars at their new Manchester Airport office to be using the app.
“People will be able to arrange their pick up from the airport and track it when they land so it’s one less struggle for them and ensures our cars are used in the most efficient way,” he said.
Mr Kendall added “Small, local businesses can embrace this affordable, easy to use technology and keep their businesses profitable at the click of a button, picking one of three packages we offer and running up no hidden costs.
“You only pay for what you use and we’re so confident companies will love our product we’re offering a two week free trial.
“Only having a few operators in the market is not good for businesses, customers or drivers: with zoom.taxi you have a solution at the click of a button.”
