Loads of ways to book and can send jobs out automatically

Pretty sure they dont, theyve just worked out Mercury 2 was a disaster and have cut a deal to control the sub 100 car market by reselling Icabbi

Its working well

for me

Icabbi (base has 30 cars) and half the punters are known to the system already and dont speak to an base op and jobs are allocated by the sytem

did laugh when a job came through, town to a local village £10 but theres a town in lancashire with the same name and pda said £116.........thing is some of our drivers, if it had been to pickup from the said town would have set off to the place 2 hours away
