The customers will be booking a taxi through web by telephone or by sms, the system will dispatch the best suitable car based on the location using the min. distance calculated through Google maps. There will be screens for supervisor for undispatched jobs.
User places order or taxi office will pickup order by phone and enter into online system. If called by telephone, the system will bring all customer data (previous pick up addresses) with CLI. Taxi cars are equipped with PDA or navigation devices (android or iphones) and have a real time updated online interface to see all new orders.
Every driver must have his own username & Password so that Taxi Office can see who is currently serving the order.
