Mobile Technology Improves Efficiency and Customer Service for Taxi Operators


Taxi operators today equip their drivers with the latest smartphones and tablets, making drivers more efficient at picking up customers and dropping them off at their destinations. Through smartphone apps, drivers directly get in touch with passengers, exchanging their location details and meeting at a rendezvous point. On the customer side, the app helps passengers identify the taxi and the exact location and time at which the taxi will reach them.

While equipping their drivers with mobile devices, taxi operators face the risk of drivers possibly tampering with device settings, consuming excessive mobile data, getting distracted while driving, and using company devices for personal enjoyment instead of work.

42Gears Helps Taxi Operators Use Mobile Devices Effectively

Tablets in the taxi fleet displays a real-time GPS-driven map that allow drivers to plan their route. However, taxi operators realized that this would pose a challenge as most of their drivers were not well acquainted with use of smartphones and tablets and even if trained, the learning curve would be steep. On the other hand, the drivers who were familiar with operating the devices could potentially misuse the GPS enabled devices for their personal use causing huge data usage costs.

With the help of our product SureLock, tablets can be locked down with access to only allowed applications. With Surelock, Taxi operators can setup kiosk mode and avoid device misuse, driver distraction and inflated mobile bills.
