India’s Most Respected Business Newspaper, the Economic Times, Names Zoomcar as One of Indias “15 Hot Startups for 2015″


Bangalore, India (PRWEB) December 29, 2014

The “Zipcar of India” was again named one of the most exciting startups in India by The Economic Times, India’s top business and finance newspaper. Zoomcar is the only company to appear on the ET’s “Hottest Startups” list two years in a row.

The company launched in Bangalore in February 2013 with 7 vehicles, and has since grown to over 500 cars at about 75 locations around Bangalore and Pune. Zoomcar also launched in the Delhi suburb of Gurgaon in December 2014, and is quickly scaling up across the capital region.

Zoomcar was founded by two Americans, Denver native David Back and New Yorker Greg Moran. The two met as freshmen at the University of Pennsylvania in 2003. Both dropped out of fully-funded MBA programs to launch the car-sharing company, David at Cambridge in the UK and Greg at USC in LA. David had previously graduated from Harvard Law School after stints in energy policy and entrepreneurship, while Greg had pursued a career in energy finance on Wall Street.

Zoomcar was the first car-rental company in India to focus exclusively on “self-drive”. Over 95% of the industry is chauffeur-driven, with western-style car rental options existing largely in the unlicensed and unregulated informal economy. The $ 4 billion Indian car rental industry is growing by nearly 15% per year, while the self-drive segment is doubling year-on-year.

“The opportunity here is astronomical,” explains Zoomcar Co-Founder and President David Back. “Around the world, our business model thrives in ultra-dense cities with low rates of car ownership. By 2030, India will have 68 cities with populations over 1 million, while all of Europe only has 35 such cities.”

Other developing countries are also seeing a transition away from chauffeur-driven car rental and towards self-drive, with car-sharing companies achieving great success in Korea, Mexico, Brazil, Turkey, and elsewhere. Chinas largest pure-play car rental company, China Auto Rental, launched in 2007, and now has over 50,000 vehicles.

Former US Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers stated, “I am proud to have been an angel investor behind Zoom. In a developing, dense country like India, there is even more benefit from automobile sharing. Zoom has the potential to help consumers, to help the environment and to empower Indian businesses.”

Zoom has raised a total of $ 12M from Sequoia, Silicon Valley Bank, Empire Angels, FundersClub, Triangle Growth, Globevestor, Basset Group, and others.

Early Zoomcar angel investor Professor Ed George, the Chair of the Statistics Department at Wharton, enthused “Zoom is perfectly poised to open self-drive access to a huge new market. Led by two brilliant visionaries, its long term upside potential is simply staggering.”

Metro Taxi Reminds Air Travelers As The Holiday Season Approaches that Licensed Taxicabs are the Only Safe and Reliable Ride for Hire to and from the Airport

Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 20, 2014

Denver International Airport (DIA) is one of the United States busiest airports. Denver International services everyone from business travelers to vacationers. With the summer holidays over, Metro Taxi wants to remind business travelers to avoid for-hire car services that do not have proper licenses, insurance, or safety checks.

For-Hire Car services, for example, do not train, license, or properly insure their drivers, says Robert McBride, owner and operator of Metro Taxi. They also fail to conduct in-depth background checks on drivers, meaning you truly have no idea who you are stepping into a vehicle with when you use this type of service.

McBride adds that, thanks to the Public Utilites Commission of Colorado, Metro Taxis drivers pride themselves on being professional, fully insured, licensed, and trained.

We want travelers from all over the world to know that they will have a safe and affordable ride in our taxicabs, McBride continues.

McBride states, We are concerned first and foremost that our taxicab service meet the quality-of-life needs of residents and nonresidents as we believe they deserve.

McBrides concern stem from some for-hire car services serving those only with a smartphone, a credit card, and ultimately, a more comfortable way of life than the less fortunate. McBride believes everyone should have access to public transportation, regardless of income.

McBride also fears unlicensed for-hire services are not safe and hes not alone. Malachi Hull, former Taxicab Bureau director for the cities of New Orleans and Atlanta and CEO/president at Define Your Image, reminds travelers, For decades, airports around the world have acknowledged the dangers of the publics riding in unlicensed for-hire vehicles. To ensure passenger safety, most airports, if not all, [have] implemented public service announcements to warn passengers about individuals soliciting to provide transportation in the baggage claim areas.

Hull also warns that, unless a vehicle is a licensed taxicab, you have no assurance that it is safe or insured. You dont know whether the driver has been properly vetted or trained to know the city streets. Such services are unregulated and simply unsafe, McBride claims, and urges Denver residents and visitors alike to consider taking a traditional taxicab rather than any unlicensed car service: Whether you hail a cab from Metro Taxi or from one of our licensed taxicab competitors, you can depend on one thing: that you will always pay a non-inflated, regulated price while riding with a professional driver you can trust. A person using their own vehicle simply wont provide this to their customers.

Remember, a licensed taxicab:

Is clearly marked as taxicab with the company name clearly displayed on its the side of the vehicle along with vehicle a number to be identified easily,

Is equipped with a meter that charges a rate approved by the Public Utilities Commission,

Is properly insured to carry passengers in case of an accident and

Is driven by a licensed driver who has been properly screened by law enforcement officials for excessive driving infractions and criminal history. Further, the driver has been tested for their knowledge of streets, tourist areas and the law.

Metro Taxi has served the greater Denver metro area since 1985. With its modern computer dispatch system and smartphone app that allows anyone to order a cab and watch it approach their destination in real-timeand of course their commitment to offering Colorados first green taxi fleet and wheelchair-accessible vehiclesMetro Taxi prides itself in providing quality service at fair and regulated rates.

Metro Taxi has an excellent working relationship with Homeland Security and the Denver police. In 2011, the company started Taxis on Patrol. Since its inception, the program has reported over 6,000 suspicious activities and crimes to these policing agencies at no expense to the taxpayer.

McBride puts it best:

Our company is made up of a group of professional entrepreneurs who have served and invested in this community for close to 30 years by providing taxicab services. Other for-hire car providers cannot make the same claim.

As visitors to our community don’t forgot to check out our monthly event guide and see all the fun that Denver has to offer.

DataOne Provides Comprehensive Vehicle Data to Power Interactive 360s Innovative Products and Services

Beverly, MA (PRWEB) September 24, 2014

DataOne Software, a division of Dominion Dealer Solutions and a leading provider of automotive data and software solutions, today released a case study detailing the success Interactive 360 has attained by switching to DataOnes vehicle data solutions. The highly accurate vehicle descriptions and seamless integration provided by DataOne Software help Interactive 360s versatile automotive products and services perform to their full potential.

Interactive 360, located in Amarillo, Tex., provides web-based CRM software, training and consulting, website design and hosting, and digital marketing services to automotive dealerships and other businesses. A well-rounded, dynamic operation like Interactive360 requires the best and most comprehensive vehicle data. With their previous vehicle data provider, however, they were getting inconsistent and limited data.. In addition, the vehicle descriptions provided did not meet OEM marketing requirements. Our customers were getting flagged by the manufacturers for not describing vehicles correctly, said Interactive 360 CEO Rick McCley.

McCley and his company needed a vehicle identification solution that could provide more reliable and consistently compliant vehicle data.

Maintaining OEM marketing compliance for dealers websites and inventory listings is a challenge that many dealer service providers face, said Jake Maki, DataOne Software general manager. Fortunately, choosing the right data provider can go a long way toward meeting that challenge. Our data provides vehicle details and style descriptions that are compliant with all OEM marketing standards.

DataOnes Advanced VIN Decoding Logic and Extended Vehicle Data proved to be a much better fit for Interactive 360. When we saw what DataOne could provide, we had to make the switch, said McCley. We dont have to worry about data coming in inaccurately or doing any manual configurations. We trust DataOne to always deliver.
