The paper trip administration is consigned to the past. The goals of the Cabman BCT: reducing fraud and unfair competition, less papers and less surveillance. Our goals when developing the Cabman BCT: complying with the guidelines, but mainly offering a compact solution that seamlessly suits your daily operational management. Of course with a user-friendly control and a beautiful design. Thanks to the countless standard features, the Cabman BCT is suitable for group transport and independent drivers.
Your drivers want simplicity and user-friendliness. We offer more with the Cabman BCT.
Clear full-screen taximeter
The Cabman BCT is equipped with a MID-certified taximeter for multiple fare systems.
Sending and receiving trip orders
Maximum control for your centre staff and your drivers on the road with a good peace of mind.
The Cabman BCT contains a special trip window with an overview of all orders and breaks. Every time someone steps in or out is defined. The centre can determine the trip sequence. The centre staff can also add, edit or remove trips.
The next trip is selected automatically. A start button is used when a passenger steps in, a stop button when a passenger steps out. When a passenger steps in, it disappears from the list and the next trip is displayed. This is how the driver can process the entire list. Special symbols indicate whether or not the trip has to be done with the taxameter, if a wheelchair or walker is coming along, etc. It is also possible to report trips as false.
Global features of the Cabman BCT
The driver can use the Cabman BCT to send several messages and notifications to the taxi centre. All possibilities have been placed on one single screen. The centre staff receives the drivers’ messages in a clear overview so tasks can be completed in the best possible way.
Log of incoming and outgoing messages on one single screen (e.g. text messages, call-back requests and phone).
Sectors and taxi rank
To enter a new taxi rank or arrival at a pre-defined sector in a simple way.
The driver can enter the desired location, start time and duration, which the centre can accept, modify or reject.
Send a text message
The driver can send a pre-defined message or can enter a personal text.
The driver creates a call-back request with only one press on the button. The centre staff can then call back as soon as the driver is available.
To receive trip orders and register and send times passengers step in and out, as well as false notifications. Every time a passenger steps in and out is registered independently.
Integrated phone module
The communication module works as an integrated phone. You can configure it in a way that drivers can only call certain phone numbers, or that the driver can only receive calls. Of course it is also possible to activate the entire phone.
The standard screen shows a number of speed dials, such as your company’s phone number, emergency number, etc. You can find the pre-defined phone numbers when you press the ‘Contacts’ button. You can also enter a phone number with the keypad. In case of an incoming call, the buttons to pick up and hang up the phone will be displayed. The name of the caller is also displayed if the caller is one of your contacts. The centre can also set the terminal in a way that the call is automatically accepted. The driver can place a call-back request with only one press on the button. The centre staff can then call back as soon as the driver is available again.
Easy to connect to a printer
The Cabman BCT can be connected to a printer, including magnetic card reader. You can therefore start and stop regional trips by inserting a customer card.
Thanks to the Cabman BCT, customers can also pay with their credit card or customer card. Every payment is a hundred percent safe. Risks for failed transactions or double insertion are technically removed.
The BCT has an online credit card payment feature. An extra communication layer has been added for this, which exports the payment from the server to, for example, Ogone or DocData. An encrypted connection is used that performs the payment and returns the transaction result to the vehicle. All risks for possible lost or double transactions are technically removed. Besides credit card payments, it is also possible to make a payment with a debit card via CCV.
Connectivity with GPRS or Ram Mobitex
The Cabman BCT connects via the GPRS network or the reliable RAM Mobitex network.
In case of Mobitex communication, it is still possible to receive the vehicle’s exact position every minute, including speed and odometer. The Mobitex implementation fully uses the packet switched possibilities of the network, such as the guaranteed delivery of packets. GPRS or Mobitex can be used to connect the BCT to all existing dispatch software.
