Arriving in a new town or city can be daunting for some people, which is why there are always taxis waiting at the airports and train stations. However, for a lot of people, hanging around waiting for a taxi to turn up is not an option, they demand something else and its Taximeter that is able to deliver it.
Taximeter is a simple enough idea it is an online booking system, but instead of it being one service for one location, Taximeter has the potential to be all taxi services in all locations. For the customer this could be the only app they need in order to make sure that there is a taxi waiting for them when they need one.
For the taxi firms this has the potential to save money because they do not have to develop their own systems and they are able to take advantage of being part are a large organisation, which provides them with credibility. It is early days for Taximeter, but it has the potential to be something big in the future.
Taximeter is a UK based start-up and therefore currently only caters for UK based customers and taxi firms. They are raising additional finance through crowd funding and as such, there are some great deals available to backers. Taximeter will be available on Google Play for Android devices and iTunes for iOS powered devices.
