About Taxiwise

Taxiwise is a mobile and web taxi booking service for business travelers, foreigners and expats who do not speak the local language and those who seek quality service and a convenience of using technology to schedule a taxi pickup. Taxiwise offers an app for passengers and another for drivers whereas venues have a special access to a web portal for their customer bookings. The passenger app features address auto-complete along with places as well so that if one does not know the address of either his pickup or destination, he/she can input a place and our system will automatically input the correct address. The Taxiwise driver app is an app where drivers can view the bookings passengers have posted. The app is filtered by destination in order to help drivers pick the rides to suit their daily travel plans. It is all translated into Chinese including the addresses and features a built-in map and countdown timer to alert the driver when the passenger needs to be picked up.

May 1, 2014

May 1.2014   Taxiwise , a Hong Kong-based online taxi booking service, has been acquired by IKKY , a local reservation service for restaurants, hotels and more. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Founded in 2012 by Jean Marc Ly, Lawrence TSE, and Troung Lam, Taxiwise provides mobile-based service for customers to book taxis in advance (unlike on-demand service like Uber).
