Easy Taxi, the taxi booking app with a global footprint, has just launched a new tool in the market: a version of the taxi app that is integrated to Microsoft’s email solution, Outlook. This new development now makes it possible to request a taxi within your Outlook email as soon as your calendar reminds you of a meeting. The solution is launched to optimize your arrival time to meetings, events, lunches, and other commitments.
The company created the feature with the same characteristics as the Web App, thus increasing more options through which users can book a cab. If the user would like to schedule a taxi, all they need to do is set up a notification that will be sent within Outlook.
“We want to offer more and more convenience and practicality to our users,” claimed Dennis Wang, Global Co-CEO of Easy Taxi. “During office hours, Outlook already notifies the person of a meeting through a reminder, now in the same Calendar tool the person can request a taxi. It’s extremely simple!” explains Wang.
“This project shows how innovative companies like Easy Taxi can team up with Office, which is used by 1.2 billion people across the globe, to help them be more productive. Microsoft’s commitment in enabling people to do more ends up being a differential that is offered to users. In this case, helping people arrive where they need to be, on time,” said Richard Chaves, Director of Innovation and New Technologies of Microsoft.
Easy Taxi’s solution is synchronized with Outlook’s calendar. Easy Taxi, one of the first Brazilian companies to develop an app for Outlook, will provide the solution to all 30 countries it is present. The app works in Outlook 2013 or more recent versions as well as in Outlook online.
