Cordic customer Garstang Cars, based in Lancashire, has been using the Taxi Butler in their local supermarket where previously they would receive bookings via the telephone.
Bob Horman MD at Garstang Cars comments: “Since installing the Taxi Butler in Booths we've increased our work from the supermarket and taken work away from our main competitor!”
Horman continues: "The Taxi Butler device is loved by Booths' staff, our drivers and customers. It's made the whole booking process more efficient and makes up 6% of our total bookings. We're planning on deploying more Taxi Butler units in the very near future!"
Cordic Marketing Manager Danielle Kinsella adds: “Taxi and Private Hire companies are looking to technology in order to remain competitive in their local areas. The low cost Taxi Butler solution means that they can increase their booking revenue from a venue and see a fast return on their investment. Garstang Cars have proven how effective the Taxi Butler device is for them and have plans for future expansion using the device as part of their strategy.”
