"The leading sales channel is satisfied customers, who save 50,000 SEK per car by placing the entire traffic management in the cloud and using connected phones or tablets instead of special equipment.
'The most important thing for us is to have satisfied customers. Taxi drivers talk to each other and if we have a customer who gives us a good review, more will come.'"
-Eero Piitulainen, Co-founder of TaxiCaller
TaxiCaller recently hosted a recruitment event aimed at local computer science students in their final years of studies. The event featured a company presentation that focused on future endeavors and current job opportunities given by Co-founder Eero Piitulainen. Between appetizers and cocktails, guests took turns playing virtual reality games and cheering each other on. A prize of Bose headphones was awarded to the person who brought the most guests and attendees left with goodie bags. TaxiCaller is looking forward to hosting similar events in the future in an effort to boost recruitment of developers.
In addition to the recruitment events, TaxiCaller is also offering a substantial finder's fee for referrals that lead to new hires. Find out more about TaxiCaller's current job openings here: https://www.taxicaller.com/en/careers
On the 27th of February, Aunataxi officially launched in Malaga, Spain with adapted taxis to provide service to people with reduced mobility.
Bookings are made at a call center through the Dispatch Console and the Passenger App in both Android and iOS versions. Bookings for special corporate customers are available through the Reception Tool, which has been specifically designed to facilitate these types of bookings.
The launch event was held at City Hall in the presence of the local mayor and included discussions on how to meet the demand for taxi services. In addition, an announcement on the inclusion of two electric taxis to the company's fleet was made.
The entire TaxiCaller team is excited to support Aunataxi in its daily fleet service and in the management of its operations as supported by our end-to-end digital dispatch technology.
Congratulations and happy dispatching!

TaxiCaller was selected for Business Sweden's Catalyst program, which identifies the most promising Swedish tech start-ups to support as they enter the scale-up phase. We were listed as one of the fastest growing companies in Sweden by the country's leading business newspaper, Dagens Industri. And our tech was publicly recognized by Sweden's Trade Commissioner in Mexico as helping to mobilize the use of digital payments around the world.
We're looking back on 2018 with pride and looking forward to 2019 with renewed energy and focus. Cheers to that!

We are happy to announce that TaxiCaller has been selected for Business Sweden's Catalyst program.
Business Sweden's Catalyst program aims to identify the most promising Swedish tech start-ups and to support these start-ups when they enter the scale-up phase.
Only 30 companies per year are selected for the Catalyst program, which means that the competition for a place in the program is very tough given that Sweden is one of the leading tech start-up countries in the world.
We at TaxiCaller very much look forward to working with Business Sweden's international offices to be able to achieve an even stronger market position on selected key markets.
