The Munich-based enterprise offers replacement vehicles for taxi companies in the event of an accident or a defect. Meanwhile, the fleet size has increased up to 18 vehicles. Each of them is equipped with the radio data from Taxi München eG and Isarfunk. This enables other taxi companies to bridge their vehicle downtime quickly and easily with high quality replacement taxis.
Taxi Özdes relies exclusively on Mercedes-Benz E-Class limousines in their fleet since they are convinced of the vehicle quality. With the connectivity services of "connect business“, the Munich-based company also sets high standards in fleet management. Furthermore, the intelligent and timely maintenance management is supporting the rental services. This has resulted in cost savings of around 7% in the area of maintenance and consumption at Taxi Özdes.
'For us as a taxi company, this is currently the best program for vehicle fleet management.'
- Ömer Özdes, shareholder of Taxi Özdes
Connect business offers the possibility of calling up all vehicle conditions directly via the system instead of checking the condition of each vehicle on the day of billing, as it was practiced previously. 'Especially the display of tire pressure is enormously important to us', says Emine Özdes, managing director of Taxi Özdes UG. Thanks to the proactive notifications of connect business, the service life of the tires could be increased by 15%.
Instead of demanding constant update regarding the position of each taxi driver, Taxi Özdes is able to see all the locations of their fleet at a glance with connect business. Hereby, the vehicle data is being updated permanently and automatically. Moreover, the web portal can be used directly without additional installation efforts. Since the outcome increased the degree of automation in vehicle dispatching, the taxi company was able to reduce its internal process costs by 15% and thus successfully increase fleet efficiency.
