Imagine you are in downtown Manhattan trying to catch a taxi at 5pm. Not an easy task. You might be standing there for some time. Well, by using the Click a Taxi mobile application you might be able to get out of there much quicker….
This application allows you to book a taxi wherever you are without even knowing the name of the local taxi company. Click A Taxi is able to fulfill that promise by building a global taxi network of 300,000 taxis across 50 countries and 5000 cities. If you think about the typical taxi company, API is not a common term for them. To execute on their vision, Click a Taxi had to build integrations with taxi companies even when APIs were not available. With Kapow, Click A Taxi is able to build Synthetic APIs and complete integrations with a taxi booking partner within 1.5 days.
The scale and agility has been game changing for this innovative company and critical for their rapid global expansion. As Søren Halskov Nissen, CEO of Click A Taxi explains:
“Without Kapow technology, we couldn’t have expanded into this many cities so fast. Our average partner integration now takes less than two days to complete. Kapow’s Big Data integration platform has helped us surpass more than 100,000 bookings a month and has grown our business much more quickly. It is also a much smoother, stress-free process using Kapow.”
Click A Taxi have recently been recognized as a winner of The Next Web’s 2013 Danish Startup Awards as the Best E-commerce Platform. We’re proud to help them drive award-winning innovation.
Information critical to the business is distributed across the enterprise ecosystem and like Click A Taxi, companies are required to interface with a growing number of partners, suppliers and other business stakeholders for their core business operations.
