The Reception Tool - A Stairway to Bookings
Have you heard of the Reception Tool but are not quite sure exactly what it is or how it can help your business? Look no further. In this blog post, we explain everything so you can decide how you would like to use it to increase your ride numbers.
Adding the Reception Tool will give you steady business and you can have peace of mind knowing that you will get most of the bookings from places you know have a lot of "traffic". And it probably doesn’t hurt that the Reception Tool is included in your vehicle activation cost, does it?
How can the Reception Tool benefit my business?
The Reception Tool is great for partnering with corporate clients, hotels, and restaurants so they can directly book your taxis for their employees or customers. Do you wish that you could increase the number of rides you get to and from these places without having to sit and wait outside the actual buildings? Well, this is where the Reception Tool works its magic.
As you already know, hotels, restaurants, and bars are places that hold a lot of potential for business. The Reception Tool gives the staff at these passenger-packed places the ability to book your taxis for their customers without any extra work from you. Not only do you get more rides, but your drivers also don’t have to sit and wait for bookings, and it frees up your dispatchers to focus on other bookings. Any time a passenger asks for a taxi, the staff can book your driver for them, whether it is for immediate pick-up or for a future ride.
This is a great growth opportunity in areas that get a lot of people coming and going and partnering with these clients will allow for a steady stream of business. The staff will find it super easy and efficient to use and being the sole company that these businesses book through is a huge advantage over your competitors. And, once they get set up, all you have to do is watch the bookings roll right in.
Another way to increase your revenue stream is to partner with corporations whose employees travel frequently or businesses whose clients often need rides. You can help take the stress out of traveling by offering the administrator/coordinators the ability to easily book your drivers for their employees and guests to and from the airport, the train station, or local meetings. Traveling can be a little unpredictable, so whether it's planned, or something pops up on short notice, they can always feel safe knowing their employees, clients, and guests will always be able to get where they need to go, when they need to go there.
Build Your Brand and Grow Your Business
The panel can easily be customized with your logo and color theme so the person making the booking will always know that they're booking with your taxi company. This helps build your company’s brand and you’ll be top of mind if these customers are ever asked for recommendations.
The Reception Tool is beneficial to your business, your corporate clients, and especially for your passengers. All your passengers need to do is to request a taxi, jump into the car when it arrives, and choose to either be billed (if that option is available) or pay the driver once the trip is finished.
How do I get started?
There are just a few simple steps to follow to get started with the Reception Tool. Reach out to the businesses you want to partner with to see if they are interested in a quick and efficient way to book taxis for their customers. Then all you have to do is send them an invite e-mail through the Admin Panel to get them set up. They will decide which employees will have access and then they just have to create an account and start booking rides for you. The booking will show up for your drivers as if it was done through your own dispatchers.
Your clients can book ASAP, pre-book and return trips, set up favorite locations, and book multiple trips. They can easily keep track of the rides they have booked and even create their own reports. And, you can see all the bookings/changes they have made in real-time!
