Posted on Wednesday, July 25th, 2018
When it comes to taxi dispatch systems, we know you have choices.
But we also believe iCabbi is (probably) the best system for your business.
iCabbi Makes Your Taxi Business Easy to Run, Easy to Grow and Saves you Money
We know from speaking with iCabbi customers that when they switch to iCabbi they save money, their business is easier to run and they grow.
That’s what a great app-based dispatch system can do for your business.
After all, it makes sense that if…
- You Appeal to More Customers – more will start to use you and to use you more often
- You Make Your Drivers Happier – they stay and even attract other new drivers to your firm
- Your Dispatch System Truly Helps You Run Your Business – then you’ll have to spend less time on admin and reporting – and you’ll have more time for growing your business.
Unrivalled UK-Based Support 24/7
Because your business is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, our support is too.
That means that whenever you need us, we’re there to help – whatever the reason.
What’s more, our support is completely UK based, which means you’ll always speak to an iCabbi Support Specialist who knows the system inside and out and can help provide the right support quickly and without fuss.
Our dedication to providing nothing short of exceptional support means technical issues don’t end up costing your business money.
You Make More Money
Utilising the automation features iCabbi provides, such as the web booker, customer app and IVR system, really can help your taxi business make more money.
Winning new customers – with smartphones so widely used these days, many of your customers will want to book using a customer app. By using iCabbi to cater for that, you’ll win and keep more of those customers, bringing in more money.
Defending your current customers – this one is simple. If you don’t provide the right tools for your customers, they could start using another taxi business that does. iCabbi’s automation means you can defend your customers and protect your profits.
No Hidden Costs
No-one likes nasty surprises, especially when it comes to business expenses.
That’s why, at iCabbi we have a pricing model that’s very simple and completely transparent.
You pay a weekly fee for each driver that needs to use the dispatch system, and that’s it. Simple.
That means, unlike many other providers, there’s no hidden costs deep down in the small print for things you’d expect to be included as part of the package.
In fact, with iCabbi there’s a whole host of things you WON’T suddenly get extra costs for, including:
- Installation charges
- Out of hours support
- Software updates
- Ongoing maintenance
- Customer app and web booker
Straightforward pricing means that you get what you expect, at the price you expected to pay – with no nasty surprises.
Awesome Customer App
There’s so much to love about the iCabbi customer app, it’s difficult to know where to start.
First off, it’s fully branded to match your company look, using your colours and your logo. Your customers will think you created it.
Next, it’s fully compatible with Apple and Android, so no-one gets left out. Your customers will find it in the Apple Store and Google Play.
Unlike with many other so-called “white-labelled” apps, you own the license, which means if you change dispatch systems in the future, it’s easy to migrate your customers to your new app – protecting your customer base, your revenue and your business.
Then there’s all the great features it offers, such as live driver tracking, email booking confirmations, fixed fares and estimated pricing displayed, optional driver rating and feedback system and more…
What’s more, customers love it! And that helps you win, and retain more, new customers, which make you more money.
