At Saturn Taxis Ltd we use all the latest technology. In the last 15 years we have developed and enhanced our services and will continue to do so.
We use a DataMaster taxi system which gives us full management control over our vehicles from our main offices located in Gravesend Town Centre (outside the railway station). We can locate the nearest driver to your pick up point providing a much quicker service.
DataMaster Auto Dispatch System
We can take customer information with a few clicks reducing your telephone call time. This system sends information directly to our drivers hand held PDA's instantly and within 20 seconds the job is accepted and the driver is on route to your destination. All our vehicles are fitted with GPS systems & PDA's. We can also track a driver's position at any given time giving you an exact time of pick up with instant vehicle location on Mapping.
When using PDA data terminals, the auto-plotting range is extended to a massive 616 square miles allowing auto-plotting to more distant locations. This system also helps in congestion and peak rush hour times letting you know immediately of any unexpected delays & exactly wherabouts your taxi is giving us accurate information we can pass on directly to yourselves.
PDA GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM
GPS navigation system is installed in all our vehicles making it a much faster way to find a particular address. Once a job is accepted, a driver will be dispatched and a driver is on route to your designating pick up point. Our system is updated regularly so any new housing estates and roads are in the system for our drivers to find.
TEXT BACK SERVICE
All our drivers have hand held PDA's providing a unique ring back service, you will receive a text to your mobile (providing you have not got number witheld) notifying you when your taxi has arrived stating make, colour & model of vehicle. This service is also provided if you use our text-a-taxi service.
