Posted on October 1, 2008

NEW YORK — Town Car International recently improved its use of fleet resources, reporting, and communication capabilities and sustainability programs (reducing idle and travel times) by installing mobile data terminals capable of auto dispatch, GPS tracking, and vehicle status reporting.

 

“TCI has integrated with many of the consolidating reservation and reporting portals used by Town Car’s corporate accounts for ground travel arrangement, billing and spend management while at the same time offering our website to the individual and other corporate clients for travel arrangements, billing and reporting. In addition, TCI is connected to reservation distribution systems available in the travel industry,” said Ravi Shah, TCI’s IT manager.

 

Russ Cooke, president and CEO of Town Car International, said, “With strategic investments, partnerships, and acquisitions in the near future, we are in an expansion mode worldwide and our technology system plays a critical role in scaling our business.”

 

Digital Dispatch is a subsidiary of DDS Wireless International Inc., a provider of applications software and solutions for wireless fleet management to multiple vertical markets within the transportation industry. The company specializes in transit routing and scheduling, real-time dispatching, vehicle location and tracking software applications, communications infrastructure, and in-vehicle wireless devices.

 

TCI provides New York and tri-state area customers with premier chauffeured TLC licensed luxury limousine ground transportation since 1986, and globally through an extensive owned and affiliated network.
