Bookmycab, the first call taxi service in Mumbai, has launched an app for android phones.
It will enable cab bookings on the go. The company has more than 3,000 taxis registered in the city that covers the entire Mumbai Metropolitan Region.
The app works without an Internet connection. You can get booking details and confirmation over SMS. You can book a cab for your friend, family member with different phone number with the same app.
“We have just made the regular black and yellow cabs and a/c cool cabs more accessible for the people of Mumbai. They can now book cabs on the go,” said Bookmycab CEO Avinash Gupta.
The service runs for 24 hours and uses the GPS/GPRS enabled real time tracking technology in its taxis to ensure availability and passenger safety. When customer makes a call for booking a taxi the contact centre executive asks for a pick-up point and the destination which is passed to the taxi dispatch system (TDS). The TDS locates nearby taxis, sends trip information and on approval from the taxi drivers sends confirmation note to the customers.
Bookmycab’s mobile booking app is available for Android devices, and can easily be downloaded from their Web site for free of cost.
