Nordic taxi company Cabonline has chosen Here Technologies as its mapping and location services provider in a bid to improve fleet operations.
Kristofer Signer, chief technology officer at Cabonline, says: “With Here Technologies as our location partner, we aim to further optimise the movement of each of our 5,700 cars.”
Cabonline is hoping the suite will provide more precise ETAs and cost estimations for customers. The technology is also expected to improve driver safety, aided by map information that integrates data from taxi driving lanes, speed limits and electric vehicle charging points.
Stefan Hansen, senior vice president at Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia at Here, says: “Our visibility into live road conditions, advanced routing algorithms and other location tools enable us to support Cabonline in the effective planning and execution of its daily fleet operations.”
Cabonline’s technology platform powers booking, dispatch and payment for multiple owned and affiliated taxi brands including Taxi Kurir, Norgetaxi and Taxi Skåne.
