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 modern taxi fleets display real-time GPS-driven maps that allow drivers to plan their routes. However, taxi operators worldwide have realized that this poses a challenge, as some drivers are not well-acquainted with the use of smartphones and tablets; even if these drivers were to be trained, the learning curve would be steep. On the other hand, drivers who are comfortable using smartphones and tablets could potentially appropriate these devices for their personal use, forcing the device owners to pay huge data-consumption costs.
With the help of our product SureLock, tablets and other in-taxi devices can be locked down to permit access only to allowed applications (also known as Kiosk Mode). With SureLock, taxi operators can set up Kiosk Mode and prevent device misuse, driver distraction and excessive data consumption.
