Kabbee’s Live Plot Technology
Summary of our Live Plot technology
Kabbee, London’s leading minicab booking and comparison app has revealed how its new ‘Live Plot’ technology reduces waiting time for its customers by 10 minutes on average, and increases passenger bookings to enabled fleets by up to 20 percent.
Kabbee provides data to help fleets understand growth opportunities including where demand is strong, which means reduced dead mileage and greater efficiency. Not only does this make fleets more competitive, but the technology means “price surges” that single fleets, such as Uber, apply. Kabbee’s ambition is to increase the number of cars connected to Live Plot from 4,000 to 6,000 by the end of 2015.
Kabbee’s Co-Founder and Chief Development Officer, Phil Makinson, explains how Live Plot is improving the industry for fleets:
“We spent 12 months working hard to develop proprietary software that can seamlessly integrate with the dispatch systems of our 60+ fleets to enable them to better keep up with evolutions in the industry.
The new GPS-based software can pinpoint where drivers are available and show accurate waiting times to customers (typically around 7 minutes, but rapidly reducing), giving our licensed fleets across London a better chance to compete with large fleets such as Uber and Addison Lee.
London’s minicab industry is increasingly technically advanced, and with our enhanced technology and processes, it will become even more so. We’ve already seen fleets celebrating impressive reduction figures for dead mileage overall and this is transforming the earnings potential for thousands of London cab drivers.
After testing of the UK’s first app/dispatch system live integration last year, we watched the Live Plot technology significantly waiting times and driver earnings, and we’re hearing from fleets that it’s transforming their businesses. The software will roll out across the rest of Kabbee’s fleets very soon.”
