Taxi & Private Hire fleets going for Gold in 2012 Olympics


23-08-2011

Cordic, leaders in Booking & Despatch software & technology for the Private Hire & Taxi industry has announced a commitment to helping their customers maximise their potential revenues from the 2012 Olympics.

Cordic wants to help customers keep one step ahead of the competition by utilising Adelante’s MobilePOS, a unique credit card transaction processing system.

Commercial Director, Fara Arani commented “London and major cities around the UK will see a surge in tourists and visitors during the Olympic Games next year and they will expect to pay by card for goods and services. Not only will a Private Hire or Taxi firm generate more business by offering card payments, but it has shown that Drivers receive larger tips from passengers paying by card”.

Arani described the business benefits “Cordic Customers are able to set up a merchant account with Adelante at a very low cost. It is completely flexible to suit the needs of each customer; they can choose whether to pay as they go or operate on a low cost monthly plan. One of the biggest benefits is that there is no additional hardware or equipment required to offer card payments unlike other merchants who require their customers to purchase chip & PIN terminals, Cordic customers can utilise the technology already available on the driver’s PDA and office based PCs for complete flexibility”.

Cordic have integrated the MobilePOS technology into all areas of their portfolio offering customer’s passengers the ability to book and pay by card through various solutions including Web Booker, the iPhone/iPad Apps and the Kiosk Booker.

Darrell Bluck, Managing Director of Adelante Software Ltd commented “Cordic recognise the importance of this facility for their customers particularly in light of the upcoming Olympic games in 2012 where most end customers will expect to be able to pay their fare by card. Adelante are the UKs leading specialist in mobile card payment solutions and have developed a strong working partnership with Cordic, providing the very best in card payment solutions for their customers”.
