NASSCOM-CNBC IT User Award 2008

Meru Cab, the world class metered call taxi service was presented the NASSCOM-CNBC IT User Award 2008 in the Travel Segment.

The award is in recognition of the pro-active and holistic approach to IT adoption and the seamless alignment of IT with the business strategy of the company. Established in April 2007, Meru Cab has pioneered the concept of GPS/GPRS enabled Taxis in India. It is the largest private cab operator in India with 2000+ cabs running across Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Delhi. Meru Cabs incorporate high end technology sytems with high-end GPS and GPRS technology installed in all brands of taxis including Maruti Esteems / Indigo Marina / Mahindra Renault Logan to ensure real-time cab location and dispatch so that passengers receive a timely response and are picked up and dropped at their destinations without any unnecessary delay.To enable effective communication between drivers and the control room, each cab is fitted with a Mobile Communication Terminal (MCT) with built-in GPS receiver, LCD display screen and GPRS connectivity. A set of communication servers, application servers and database servers are installed at Meru’s datacenter, which are in constant. touch with each cab through GPRS. The latitude and longitude information is plotted on GIS map for real time tracking. Emergency security features such as a panic button and first-aid kits are also present in the vehicle for use in case of any accidents or emergency situations. Meru cab also has a “Lost and Found” tracking system in place so that any item left behind inadvertently in a cab can be traced to the vehicle that the reporting customer has used. Mr Mark Pereira, CEO of Meru Cab notes, “It is a great honour to receive this award from NASSCOM and CNBC. A significant factor in the quality of transportation services provided by Meru Cab is the implementation of high-end technology in its operating systems as well as in the cabs themselves. This award is a validation for all our endeavors and we are grateful for this recognition.”
