REDTAIL announces customer win of taxi cab company in Minnesota

New Star Taxi has chosen to utilize the REDTAIL Fleet Management System (FMS) in order to comply with new regulations approved by the Minneapolis City Council requiring all taxis to install cameras, bullet-proof shields between driver and passenger or GPS tracking systems. REDTAIL has made it possible for New Star Taxi not only to meet the terms of the city’s new regulations and increase driver safety, but also to maximize fleet efficiency. Luis Pecaur, owner of New Star Taxi, states that the REDTAIL Fleet Management System yields a substantially greater return on investment than the alternatives. Equipped with real-time data such as driver speed, idle time, acceleration, harsh braking and location, New Star Taxi can now focus on implementing cost-saving measures and increasing the value and revenue of its fleet.

REDTAIL has developed an additional safety feature at the request of New Star Taxi. In less than one month, REDTAIL sourced, configured, and tested its “panic button.” When a driver pushes the button, an emergency signal is automatically sent via email or text to the dispatcher and the location of the vehicle that triggered the panic alert flashes in red on the dispatcher’s mapping screen. REDTAIL is pleased to announce that each vehicle in New Star Taxi’s fleet using its Fleet Management system is now equipped with a panic button.
