Online taxi aggregator TaxiPixi wins investment from mobile maker
Online taxi hailing startup TaxiPixi has raised a seed fund from Hyderabad-based mobile phone maker Celkon Mobiles.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed. The India-based company will utilize this fund to expand its services to tier two and tier three cities in India, Malaysia and Singapore.
TaxiPixi has a web and mobile service (app for iPhone, Android) that enables users to request a taxi. Then, the company sends this booking request to all nearby taxis that belong to all taxi operators. Once a driver accepts the booking, the details of the driver and customer are shared with each other.
TaxiPixi’s multi-operator strategy doesn’t limit a customer to a single taxi operator.
