Rocket Internet-backed taxi hailing startup, Easy Taxi, has launched a new version of its mobile app that is integrated into Microsoft’s popular email solution, Outlook.
The new mobile app will enable users to request a taxi within their Outlook email account when reminded of a calendar-saved event, thereby offering users other options of booking for a taxi.
The new solution, which allows users to schedule a taxi by simply setting up a notification that will be sent within Outlook, is aimed at optimizing a user’s arrival time to meetings, events, lunches, and other commitments.
Dennis Wang, Global co-chief executive officer (CEO) of Easy Taxi said, “We want to offer more and more convenience and practicality to our users,”
He further said, “During office hours, Outlook already notifies the person of a meeting through a reminder, now in the same Calendar tool the person can request a taxi. It’s extremely simple!”
Easy Taxi, launched in 2012 and currently available in 30 countries and 420 cities including Easy Taxi Nigeria in Lagos and Abuja. The App connects taxi drivers and passengers, allowing them experience a fast, convenient and safe ride at just the tap of a button.
The Easy Taxi app is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices, as well as for B2B clients through Easy Taxi PRO and Easy Taxi Corporate solutions.
