Cabfind.com grows network through partnership with Cordic
Cambridge UK, 4th February 2015 --- Leading data despatch software supplier Cordic has announced a new partnership with leading business travel management supplier Cabfind.com.
Cordic and Cabfind.com have entered a deal to integrate their cab booking and despatch systems. Fusing Cordic and Cabfind.com’s systems removes the need to manually enter bookings, and now, Cabfind.com bookings are automatically sent to a supplier and processed through their Cordic cPAQ data despatch system.
Cabfind.com client’s benefit greatly from the secure transfer of booking information, as the possibility of error is removed via automation. There is also an increased level of duty of care that clients can provide to their staff. Using an enhanced level of location based tracking, Cabfind.com can access geographical information about their employees, while they are traveling in a Cabfind.com booked vehicle, this higher level of security ensures quality and safety at all times and is required by some of Cabfind.com’s more high profile clients.
The partnership is a key development for Cabfind.com, providing opportunities to expand their supply chain and in turn, ensuring a wider reach for clients. This integration allows Cabfind.com to be more competitively priced, ensuring that the business maintains their position as market leader.
Chris Jordan MD of Cabfind.com, said:
“The partnership with Cordic makes it easier for our suppliers to work with us. Integrating the Cabfind.com booking system with the Cordic cab despatch system eliminates the need for Cabfind.com suppliers to manually enter jobs, as they are now despatched automatically.
“Cabfind.com clients will also benefit from the integration, as our service offering becomes even more efficient and cost effective.”
Fara Arani, commercial director at Cordic said:
“Partnering with Cabfind.com means that we are now able to offer our customers a completely integrated solution for Cabfind.com bookings.
“Previously Cabfind bookings would be entered manually into a Cordic customer’s cab despatch system by an operator. With the new integration, jobs can be sent directly into a customer’s cab despatch system and despatched automatically to the closest available vehicle, which results in a reduction in driver’s dead mileage and makes the process more efficient for a faster service delivery to Cabfind.com customers.
“With the integration, Cabfind.com customers are able to track their booked vehicle using the online booking system as the car’s location data is pulled through the Cordic National Gateway to the end-user in real time.
“We believe partnering with forward thinking companies like Cabfind.com benefits our customers as it allows them to receive additional high value work with minimal impact on operations through our seamless integration.”
Pryors, an executive travel service company based in Oxon, Oxford and one of Cabfind.com’s long standing clients, has been one of the first suppliers to benefits from the new system integration with Cordic.
David Pryor, managing director at Pryors
“The integration with Cordic just makes life easier. We are able to process jobs from Cabfind.com far quicker than before, it helps to keep our operation efficient and allows us to focus on delivering what we do best, providing fantastic customer service.”
