Breaking news: collaborating with other businesses is all hot! You’ve got all the data about what your clients like, right? Ever been wondering how to use this precious knowledge? Very simple: team up with the businesses your passengers love.

How does that work? Let us explain.

Imagine, 50% of your passengers are staying at a local hotel. At a certain point of their stay, they come to the reception desk and ask for a taxi. The reception person orders a taxi from your company. The price of a trip is included in the suite price. The hotel bills the guest, and you bill the hotel.

Imagine, you ally with 20 other businesses in your location. Imagine, it’s not only hotels, but also airports, restaurants, nightclubs, and basically any companies needing taxi transfer services every once in a while. Exciting, right?

But is there some tool to make this scheme possible? The answer is yes.

Taxi on a room: hotels will love it

Hotel transfers, airport transfers, and all other types of partner transportation services are made really effortless within TaxiStartup platform. We’ve included “Partner dispatcher” (aka “remote dispatcher”) into the company panel. Let’s see how it works.

You have operators with full access. They are able to create, view and change orders for all available service types, as well as view and change orders of other operators. They can also view drivers on the map.

And you have operators with partner access. They are only enabled to create, view and change orders of the service types allowed for them personally. They won’t have an access to other operators orders, and they won’t be able to view the map.

Partner dispatcher access is an ideal solution for your business partners: hotels, restaurants, service stations and any other businesses eager to book your services for their clients, employees, or whoever.

Venue can’t bill clients? We got you covered!

In taxi business, “one-size-fits-all” solutions are seldom. Not all businesses will use your services under the same conditions. This is why we’ve thought of different options.

1. Partner access (paid by a passenger) . This one is for your partners who let their clients pay for a transfer taxi themselves. Only the service types with “Cash” and “Terminal” payment methods are allowed here. The money for a trip will be transferred to your account as soon as the trip is taken.

2. Partner access (billed on a partner). This is a perfect option for the partners who pay for their clients. Like if a nightclub books a taxi transfer for a guest and puts costs on an account. In this case, you bill the nightclub at the end of a month. For this access level, only the service types with “Third party systems via Dispatch API” payment method are allowed.

As you see, your collaboration with businesses that matter for your clients is made really-really easy.

First, you will have to find out what local businesses are a good match for the growth of your company. These can be:

  • Restaurants,
  • Bars,
  • Hotels,
  • Nightclubs,
  • Airports,
  • Bus and train stations,
  • Harbors,
  • Concert halls,
  • Hospitals…

(we can go on with this list for the next ten pages, but who wants to read it?).
