The leading taxi operator in San Diego launches a concierge service with Bttn to provide a better way of calling cabs than ride-sharing apps
San Diego, CA – October 27, 2015 – San Diego Yellow, the leading taxi company in San Diego with over 300 vehicles, launches its new Concierge service with Bttn, the world-famous internet-connected push button.
Restaurants, hotels and boutiques frequented by large numbers of customers are repeatedly calling taxi compa- nies to place ride orders. Deploying San Diego Yellow branded bttns to these locations, SDY offers a totally new level of service. Dubbed as SDY Concierge, a simple push of a button sends a taxi order to that address, and then displays confirmation light on the bttn.
Taxi operators have for some years been challenged by internet-connected ride-sharing services. Some of the tra- ditional operators have also developed their own app-based services but studies have shown personal apps do not reach all customers and they’re not the most convenient way for concierge-served customers. Using a bttn to place taxi orders is both faster and more convenient than app-based hailing.
