Company offers eCommerce Business-to-Business (B2B), Business-to-Consumer (B2C) Website, Orders and Inquiries Fulfillment Platform, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Level 1 and Level 2 support, Customer Services, Marketing Services, Content Management, Mobile App and Game Development Services.

Project- iBuggie.com- Taxi Management System (TMS): iBuggie.com is a marketplace for Drivers and Cab Owners. It is an online taxi booking service that provides a web-interface between taxi operator companies and taxi drivers. It deals with different taxi-cab owners and taxi drivers to provide the services, ensure a real-time availability and dispatch of cabs as booking comes in. iBuggie.com also provide taxi management system for cab-owners by providing them an interface to log common taxi operating functions, such as lease renew, vehicle inspection, renewal notifications. It also allows taxi-cab owners and drivers to manage travel costs with electronic booking, payment, and expense management for taxi services. The system allowed the Cab owners to generate lease, manage payments, create day schedule, calendar in which they can manage medallion inspection date, medallion re-Inspection dates, change of equipment dates, Ticket court Dates, Corporation license renewal dates with reminders.

In phase I, we developed Driver, Medallion, Lease and Fleet Management System (LFMS). LFMS provided the capability for the cab owner to create a lease online by entering the Booking #, medallion #, Chauffeur #, Driver name, Corporation, Lease status, start date, end date, date created and created by. City of Chicago has strict rules and regulations to lease the medallion. One of the rule says that driver can lease the cab for 1-week max. Our system tracks the date and notify the cab owner and driver about the lease end date and possibility of renewal. Driver can come back and renew the lease every week. According to another rule, a taxi can be leased for a certain amount according the make and model of the car. Cab owners used to charge more for older cars or whatever they liked before it was automated. We provided the feature that loads the information directly from the city and charge automatically. LFMS provided cab owners and drivers a signature pad instead of a manual signature. We have embedded the payment methods. Cab owners are notified of number of medallions leased and the medallions that available for lease.

We created the Taxi owner panel as well as the driver panel. On the driver panel, cab driver used to look for cabs on the daily basis. Through our marketplace they can just look up for the taxi available to lease according to the lease type and shift time they are looking for. We constantly update the Lease agreement as the city introduce new rules and amendments.

In phases II and III, TMS expanded with the addition of Ticket, Accident, IPass, Report, Corporation, Rate Management systems. These systems added the capabilities for the Cab owner to get updates about Chauffeur status, Ticket info, court dates, mandatory city classes, toll charges etc. Also, we added the reminders through email and SMS.
