Taxi Company’s Customer Service Goals Include New Technologies to Further Enhance the Experience

It is with great pleasure that Mobile Knowledge Systems Inc. welcomes County Cab and Quaker City Cab of Philadelphia to its rapidly expanding user community. The Companies, both owned and dispatched out of a common facility, have entered into agreements with Mobile Knowledge to deploy the eXpert Dispatch System (“XDS”) for its call center, along with the new TaxiHail Smartphone Booking App that will allow customers to schedule trips and track the dispatched cab on their smartphones. An eXpert AutoCallout Module will alert customers when the cab is arriving on site. In addition, these integrated technologies will include wireless rear-seat Credit Card processing through a Next Generation Passenger Information Monitor from Mobile Knowledge partner Creative Mobile Technologies (CMT).

Seventy (70) vehicles in the County Cab fleet serving Pennsylvania’s Delaware County, and 25 vehicles in the Quaker City Cab fleet serving the City of Philadelphia will be equipped with Mobile Knowledge’s industry-leading, GPS-based Series 2008 Mobile Data Terminal communicating over the Sprint data network. The total package will also include Mobile Knowledge’s MobileNav personal navigation GPS device that automatically provides the driver with both visual and verbal directions to the customer’s pickup and drop-off locations.

County Cab/Quaker City Cab management is committed to leading the way with the latest technological advancements, and providing an enhanced experience for both its drivers and the traveling public alike. The Company believes that the new Mobile Knowledge system will advance both of these principles.

Mr. Ronald Winkelvoss, Owner of County Cab and Quaker City Cab, commented on the decision to select Mobile Knowledge, “We have chosen an outstanding business partner and industry leader in Mobile Knowledge. We’ve been an advocate for automated taxi dispatch and GPS-based mobile data technologies for many years, and our customers are going to love the new technologies we are implementing. The customer experience is the key to any business, and our goal is to provide the best taxi service in Philly and the surrounding area, period. Technology is a very big part of realizing this vision. It’s a very exciting time for County Cab and Quaker City Cab.”

Kevin French, President of Mobile Knowledge expressed his thanks to the County Cab/Quaker City Cab management team for their vote of confidence. “The entire Mobile Knowledge team is honored to be selected by such an established and respected taxi company that realizes the benefits of keeping pace with the latest technology advancements. We look forward to helping them achieve their goals in the years ahead.”

Mobile Knowledge’s Series 2008 Mobile Data Terminals and XDS call center software have quickly become the technology standard for cost-effective automated dispatch for the For-Hire industry.
