In a situation where Bolt, Uber and other ride-sharing services have been vigorously entering the market and making booking very easy, Tallink Taxi, a traditional taxi service provider, has been looking for a mobile app to make ordinary taxi service booking more convenient. The new app allows the customer to book a taxi faster and more conveniently than by calling, and can track how far is the arriving car already. On the other hand, the app also offers the advantages of ordinary taxi services that meet all requirements. Taxi drivers can have more work done with the new app.
The taxi client will be able to see the estimated cost of the journey and the time of arrival, which will be calculated on the basis of traffic and previous experience.
The Taxilink application was developed by Uptime, who has previously done software development for Tallink Taxi. A year ago, Tallink´s taxi call center, on-board computer and backoffice software were completed by Uptime. A taxi app provides the comfort of a ride sharing service with the assurance of quaranteed service quality of an official taxi service.
The new mobile application was created with a simple and clear user interface using the VueJS framework and developed using Cordova, VueJS, Firebase and Azure cloud services.
