TaxiCab today, the steering group is in the process of finalising the Co-op / mutual society detail this is the legal foundation we need to move forward with the app solution.
We had hoped to produce our own app but this has proved difficult in the extreme and Alex our developer has had to step back for various reasons some of which are personal.
We have however looked at a few viable solutions that can give us our own controlled and
branded app with full backing and full integration within the ‘Society’, we are still in negotiations but we think we can get this tech partnership done on a PAYG basis, no up front costs, we think it it is imperative that we get an app to market asap and this will speed things up greatly.
Ultimately this becomes your society under mutual control a ‘Social Business’.
We need to raise funds to enable set-up and initial promotion costs this is where we have said from the outset that we see a ‘one off membership / share purchase’ and then a ‘fee per job’ which goes towards app running costs and society costs any residual profit is ploughed back into the society to facilitate growth and trade promotion, we encourage your feed back and input and any one wanting to help move things forward is most welcome ‘it’s your society’.
In joining taxicab every driver has a say, every driver has a share and every driver will have a vote.
We know that the London Taxi Trade has to embrace the technology that drives our lives forward, hence why we are here, determined to do this the right way.
