Taxi Butler have recently unveiled its latest booking technology which allows taxi fleets to capture more automated bookings from venues like hotels, bars, and restaurants using QR code tech.
Taxi Bultler QR will offer hotel guests and other event goers a safe, reliable and simple way to get to their next destination. Generated through Taxi Butler’s platform, the QR codes are printed on flyers, table tents or any other marketing materials, and can be placed anywhere inside a venue, for instance in a hotel lobby, hotel rooms, or even an airport lounge. Guests inside the venue simply scan the QR code and instantly book a taxi with a local taxi fleet.
Taxi fleets pre-configure taxi types from their fleet and let users choose the right one for them. It also lets them choose at which time they want to be picked up.
Taxi Butler QR enables taxi fleets to create a seamless taxi booking experience for their customers with a ready-made web interface. The interface is branded according to the taxi fleet's branding and is fully integrated with their existing dispatch system.
Without having to download an app or sign up, users can book a taxi in just a few seconds. The pick-up location is preset by the taxi company when they create the QR code, allowing users to book a taxi seamlessly by just choosing their destination, selecting a taxi type and entering their contact information. Smart Destinations allows users to easily search and select their destination, 100% hassle-free. Taxi fleets pre-configure taxi types from their fleet and let users choose the right one for them. It also lets them choose at which time they want to be picked up. Using SMS verification, Taxi Butler verifies users on behalf of the taxi fleet using SMS authentication. Users track their taxi live on the map and see when their driver is outside. They’ll see the driver’s name, vehicle information and how much they should expect to pay.

Since the pandemic, the taxi industry has endured several challenges and bounced back, adapting to a new normal. With new technologies aiming to improve automated taxi bookings from venues, there has been a massive shift in how people use taxis and private hire services worldwide. As part of Taxi Butler's vision that people worldwide are connected to themselves and each other, the new 'Taxi Butler QR' is seen as another initiative by Taxi Butler alongside existing ones like RedRoute, Driver Bubble, and 20test, to bring new features and improvements towards the upliftment of the taxi industry.
