Anyone traveling to or from the Airport in the United States would be aware of SuperShuttle International Inc. This company has the largest network of services for providing shared ride shuttle services. Now as per the latest tablet PC news, the company has joined up with NEXCOM to bring out a Mobile Tablet PC. This tablet is meant for all its franchise drivers in order to enhance their services with these following applications:
Pick up services enhancement:
The software loaded on this tablet has the ability to display the exact location of the individual to be picked up. The location is updated on the tablet as soon as the individual secured the reservation. The tablet includes the Geospatial Navigation toolkit provided by Telogis Geobase.
The device has an inbuilt barcode scanner which would capture data -like ticket prepaid or not- and also if any promotional offers have to be given to the individual. This would save time from the driver.
Clear screen display:
The display being large and clear as well as with touch screen capability makes it easy for the driver to pick up information from the map and navigation ensuring minimum distractions. This will ensure the driver is able to keep his focus on the road ahead and is not caught grappling for data from the tablet pc. The screen is equally readable in bright sunlight, which reduces the need to squint or settle the tablet into a more uncomfortable position.
The device has Bluetooth connectivity to a mobile printer as well as to a credit card swiper that has been supplied by Sebra Technologies. This allows for the drivers to easily swipe credit cards, print the receipts, and easily record the signatures of the customers.
Mike Hogan the Chief Information Officer for SuperShuttle International and Veolia Transportation On Demand says, “We think the NEXCOM Mobile Tablet PC is a real game changer for our customers and our drivers creating a seamless customer service experience for our franchise drivers and the customers alike.”
So the here we have another example of how tablet PCs have permeated our everyday lives.
