I'm looking to get a software solution just like [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] for my taxi [url removed, login to view] customers will book a cab 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 maps or can be done manually. There will be screens for supervisor for undispatched jobs. If called by telephone, the system will bring all customer data (previous pick up addresses) with CLI. cab cars are equipped with PDA or navigation devices and have a real time updated online interface to see all new orders.
Every driver must have his own username & Password so that cab Office can see who is currently available for work. Also cars are equipped with GPS and system must Record & show driver's real time Location (coordinates) on the map.
There will be car groups so that the customer will demand a 7 seater car for example, the dispatch will be among 7-seater cars available. The fair system will be flexible on three methods (mileage, zone or postcode matrix, time) Account customers will be able to choose which fair method to use and they will have fixed agreed fares on zones or mileage.
The system will allow repeat bookings (every Thursday [url removed, login to view] pickup from a desired address etc.) There will be payment gateway in the car. The system will allow to handle multiple pickups and multiple drop offs for the same job say for a school run.
DETAILED PROJECT DESCRIPTION.
cab DRIVER INTERFACE 1. when a new job is dispatched to the driver it should immediately appear on the driver's screen ,basically driver should see customer name, address and phone number and also must have buttons "accept" or "decline".

Drivers will be using Iphone with gsm capability. The software receive data from gps receiver and send coordinated to the server in customizable by user time interval(for example every 10Sec) and save coordinated on server's database. 3. Iphone connected to the Internet via GPRS or 3G. In case GPRS connection is lost, GPS coordinates should be stored locally on the pda and then synced with Database server at reconnection.
DISPATCH CENTER INTERFACE
Dispatch centre interface should be a web based application with login and Password with 3 level users (operator, supervisor, admin) with different authorizations.
Should have input fields to post an order, (name, address, phone Number. Calculate Mileage based on pick up & drop off points & work our real time mileage & cost). Routing to display on the screen as well. Should be able to popup caller history from past orders ( Read incoming caller data from our PBX) & pop up a order history form on Booking Agent's Screen. as well should have a map of the city and on the map should show location of the cabs. The system will send the customers mobile an sms, after dispatching, the reg no of the car and saying it’s on the way.
