Solution’s Enterprise-Wide and Mobile Capabilities Help Black Car Services Better Manage and Improve the Efficiency of Their Operations While Directly Impacting Their Bottom-Line


Franklin, Tennessee, April 11, 2011
- Making it easier for ground transportation providers to win and retain customers, Unified Software, LLC, today introduced its BARRACUDA solution for the Black Car market.
The BARRACUDA solution is a complete end-to-end enterprise and mobile solution that supports customer registration; online, mobile and landline-based trip reservations; manual and automated car dispatching; reporting; driver communications and tracking, and driver payroll and customer billing management.

Unlike other applications available on the market which use older legacy and out-of-date technologies, BARRACUDA is a proven smart technology platform built to keep up with the demands of today’s ever-changing market and evolve with one’s future business. The BARRACUDA platform was recently tested and successfully deployed across a fleet of 200 vehicles at a New York City-based Black Car service. Today, that BARRACUDA platform handles more than 250,000 electronic messages exchanged between drivers and the headquarters system daily.

As more and more corporate workers and individuals use mobile applications as part of their everyday lives, the ability to make car service transportation reservations via a mobile device is quickly becoming a much sought after application, and will be a critical part of the success of Black Car providers today and in the future.

Using BARRACUDA’s mobile module on their iPhone, iPad or Android-based smartphone, customers can make reservations within five to 10 seconds, dramatically reducing the time to make a car service reservation by more than 80 percent, compared to standard phone call reservation times. Mobile users will also be able to receive real-time reservation updates, including car/driver information, GPS tracking information and the all-important estimated time of arrival.

“The Black Car market has never seen anything like BARRACUDA. This reliable smart technology platform will transform one’s business while positioning Black Car providers better for future growth,” said Sevada Badalian, president, Unified Software. “To remain competitive in today’s market, providers need to evolve their business to meet the current market demand and activity.

“This solution will put enterprise and mobile capabilities directly into the hands of those who need it – the operators, dispatchers, account managers and drivers – leading to faster response times, increased customer loyalty and ultimately, new business and customers” added Badalian.
