FQ Wireless is pleased to announce the release of its Taxi Commander low-cost taxi driver app for smartphones. Following a long tradition of innovation in the taxi dispatch market, the new Taxi Driver SmartPhone App complements the existing Android in-vehicle tablet line-up. This new product accommodates the BYOD (bring your own device) market, allowing drivers to be dispatched on their personal Android or iPhone devices. This keeps costs low for taxi dispatch brokers and other passenger transportation fleets.
Taxi Driver App Applications
This new product allows all types of passenger transportation drivers to be dispatched on their personal phones, while in or out of the vehicle. It works seamlessly with the cloud-based Taxi Commander Dispatch Suite, catering to:
- Taxi Fleets
- Black Car
- Non-Emergency Medical
- General Dispatch
The Taxi Commander Driver App works in conjunction with the Taxi Commander Basic dispatch system, which is a low-cost, easy-to-use cloud-based dispatch system. In most traditional taxi dispatch systems, the vehicle is equipped with a dedicated mobile data terminal for dispatching purposes. While that type of solution is also available from Taxi Commander, the Basic system helps small fleet operators keep their costs in line by leveraging the personal cellular phones used by most drivers. A secondary benefit is that fleets may expand their reach into other markets at a low cost, by recruiting available drivers outside of their local market.
Although very simple to use, the Driver App has advanced features, including Flag Trip creation, Payment Processing and complete integration with the Taxi Commander Passenger App.
