City Cabs benefit with an immediate increase in fares by using TaxiPay Chip & PIN
A new contract to provide City Cabs, Edinburgh with Chip & PIN terminals for their vast fleet of cars has been announced by Adelante Software Ltd.
Adelante and City Cabs have had a successful working relationship for over 10 years and this new contract means that City Cabs have a full complement of payment options to offer their customers. City Cabs covers all of Edinburgh and surrounding areas, including Edinburgh airport, a contract that has recently been renewed for a second time and alone brings in over 490,000 pick ups a year.
'Today's passengers count on using their credit and debit cards even for relatively short journeys, so being able to take safe and secure card payments with a Chip & PIN device is essential for the growing success of our business as well as improving our companies professional image', explains George Aird, Chairman at City Cabs. 'Unfortunately our relationship with another Chip & PIN provider didn't prove to be financially viable', continues George 'therefore after a thorough review of the market Adelante offered the most keenly priced deal and knowing first hand that they provide an excellent service with friendly, helpful staff, it seemed a natural progression to extend our relationship and implement TaxiPay Chip & PIN'.
Already, after only a month, City Cabs are seeing a substantial increase in the number of fares being taken as a direct result of implementing TaxiPay Chip & PIN.

New Roaming Sim
Adelante now offer fully roaming data Sims for our range of mobile GPRS Chip & Pin terminals.
In the UK all 3 major mobile networks are covered, O2, Vodafone and Orange/T-mobile. Terminals can be set to automatically roam or if required the user can manually select the network they wish to connect to. The single biggest problem for GPRS Mobile Chip and PIN Machines is obtaining a signal. By moving to a roaming Sim most of these issues go away because if the default network is busy or out of range the sim will search for the best available alternative signal So don’t be caught out again with lack of signal, rent an Adelante terminal with a roaming Sim. Terminals can be connect to all UK acquiring banks.
Another big benefit of roaming Sims is that they can also roam throughout mainland Europe and also some other countries. If you want to take credit cards abroad we now have the perfect solution. Call our sales desk for prices to rent our roaming terminals from 3 days up to 3 years.

Anderson Zaks was selected by Adelante for its expertise within the Chip & PIN market and for being the best cultural fit for the Adelante business model.

Iain High, Managing Director at Anderson Zaks, said “We are delighted to be working with Adelante on this innovative, fully accredited mobile payment solution.
