Taxinet

Taxinet is a logistics company that is revolutionizing the transportation infrastructure of South America. By seamlessly connecting riders and drivers through applications, Taxinet makes cities more accessible and traveling a more consistent experience. Using intelligent Uber-like technologies, Taxinet provides drivers and riders of South America a safer, faster, and more reliable way to travel.

Taxinet
The Challenge

As safety and security issues surrounding transportation have continued to rise in South America, Taxinet sought a technology partner that could build an integrated platform that would allow users to travel with convenience and peace of mind. The company wanted to build a centralized web application that would oversee every aspect of the platform – from drivers and users locations, to fare management, to

payment processes - paired with unique mobile applications for drivers and riders to connect. With the vision of being deployed in every cab in South America, the system would need to be built with the ability to rapidly expand, accommodating the mindset of an additional country per month. On top of it all, with taxi fare deregulations on the horizon, the system would have to adapt to a changing political landscape.

The Analysis

From the outset, Icreon would develop the database and design algorithms that would calculate ride costs based on time and distance travelled. Icreon would then need to develop a web-based application which would allow administrators to oversee operations. The web app would be developed in parallel with the mobile

applications, which would connect drivers and riders. To ensure each application talks to Taxinet uniformly, Icreon would also need to develop an API Layer that communicates with all devices, decreasing the time to support new devices, with minimal need to modify the database.
