VoIPstudio Integration with Taxi CallerPosted on: 2019-06-07 | Categories: VoIP Services
Communication is the lifeblood of any organization. It connects everyone both within and without the business. It doesn’t matter what industry you operate in or the size of your company. You need effective communication systems, just like finance or IT. Nevertheless, communication is a tad more important for certain organizations more than others.
For businesses that operate in the transportation sector, communication – specifically voice communication – is vital. Think of companies that operate fleets of taxis, limousines, or even trucks. They need to stay in touch with drivers, deal with problems on the road, and assign jobs as and when they come in. All of this happens in real time. A delay of even a few minutes can spell disaster on the streets and wreck schedules.
How can VoIP help transportation businesses?
TaxiCaller – A Dispatch System
Any transportation company that has a fleet of vehicles and drivers needs a dispatch system. The system will need to handle manual and automated bookings, assign drivers, and track them in real-time. TaxiCaller is a good example that’s popular in the industry. Their solution has many parts including apps for drivers and passengers, a dispatch system, online bookings, and even a complete office administrative solution.
TaxiCaller offers mobile management, apps for different smartphones, and systems that allow dispatchers to monitor vehicles in real time. Passengers can book trips from their phones. An automated system can assign jobs fairly across all the drivers. It can also update them on schedule changes, traffic issues, and other potential problems. Managers can log in from anywhere to the business dashboard. They can view charts, graphs and analyze reports even outside the office.
The Connection with VoIP
As you can see, a dispatch solution is essential for transportation companies. But there’s only one half of the solution. Most taxi businesses rely on phone calls for the majority of their communication. Now, a business can use landlines as they always have. But VoIP offers a number of benefits that organizations cannot overlook.
Features like call routing, multi-device ring, instant messaging, and visual voicemail allow drivers to connect without distractions. They can stay in touch with dispatchers and other office members regardless of location. An organization with multiple offices often relies on conference calls and video chat. But for a transportation company, other features like ACD queues or automatic failover may be more important.
Regardless of the exact features you need, there is no denying that VoIP can improve productivity. It allows for mobility and flexibility, vital for a company whose employees are always on the move. How can you expect workers to use landlines when they don’t even have an office or desk?
VoIP Studio Integration with Taxi Caller
Perhaps the best part about VoIP is its ability to integrate with other enterprise tools. While ERP and CRM solutions are common candidates for such integration, VoIPstudio offers more for clients.

VoIPstudio’s integration with TaxiCaller is cost effective for any business. Some dispatch solutions do offer integrated SIP clients.
