Business Challenge

What the client needed

Our collaboration started in 2009 and resulted in many interesting projects.

Our main goal is to ensure that Trapeze Group can continue to offer a competitive product that is used by the biggest taxi companies in the country, making passengers’ lives easier.

We have developed a number of server, web and mobile applications for Trapeze’s Auriga Dispatch System, which manages private hire and taxi fleets.

Adding and developing new components allowed greater optimisation, bringing Trapeze more satisfied clients.

Scope of work

The most tangible effect of our collaboration is EVO SOLUTIONSan internal desktop app written in Java, used mainly to manage tens of thousands of jobs every day – from the process of ordering a taxi and scheduling it, to staff asset management.

Benefits of the solution


How does EVO SOLUTIONS work in practice? When a taxi company gets a booking, it is then sent to the most efficient vehicle for the job to be completed.

Many business rules have been implemented such as dispatch optimisation based on zones and point-based mathematical algorithms as well as loyalty benefits for regular customers.

We have updated the maps to display more detailed, up-to-date information, allowing telephonists to view and track vehicles on their own screen, providing better “back on the phone” service. Improving the appearance of maps contributed significantly to increasing usability, especially with the possibility to manually dispatch a job to a vehicle from the enquiry screen.

It is safe to say that we are being trusted and treated as a partner, which is manifested, among others, by the fact that we are given a lot of freedom in the case of technological solutions.

I think team cooperation has to be the strongest plus point for Future Processing. Both teams we work with communicate well with my team based in the UK, are open to offering suggestions of improvements with functionality and technology stacks.

Our role

Mobile application

We were also asked to streamline the client’s iOS app for the Auriga Dispatch System – TAXIBOOKING – which provides a simple way for customers in the UK and Ireland to make their own taxi bookings with just a few taps on their phone.

We assisted with issue resolution, the application’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) and implementation of additional features and currently TAXIBOOKING allows booking a taxi or private hire vehicle.

An iOS booking application allows Trapeze Group clients’ to order a taxi, select the location or track the taxi using Google maps and to choose a payment method. An additional advantage is that, depending on the season (e.g. Christmas), it can adjust and take more bookings, therefore meeting Trapeze Group clients’ needs at all times.

After we worked on an iOS booking, it was only natural that we started to work on an Android version of the app.

Beyond software development

Key success factors

What helped us better understand our client’s needs was a visit to Trapeze Group’s end clients’ offices, where we talked to real users and saw how the software is used on a daily basis.

We also saw reports presenting bounce rate of calls, which again focused our attention on how important it is for the software to be responsive, even during peak seasons (e.g. Halloween, Holiday time etc.), since the passengers can change their mind if waiting time is too long.

Is it the end?

Looking to the future

Our role in the future will be to further develop and streamline Trapeze Group’s applications, so that they are even easier to use and more competitive. Additionally, we would like to move the solution into the Cloud, which may be a great breakthrough for Trapeze Group, when it comes to fleet management, bringing them more possibilities for growth.
