What is Involved in Setting Up WinLimo?
WinLimo is the most flexible and complete trip reservation, dispatch and billing solution available for small taxi, paratransit, limousine and black car operators. The system comes complete with Rapid Call Taking with Trip Reservation History, Multi-Type Trip Pricing, Computer Aided Dispatch, Account Billing, Accounts Receivable and an integrated Landmark Database. Quick Books Export is also included at no extra charge.
If your organization runs between 1 and 20 vehicles, WinLimo can handle your business easily and efficiently. If your fleet is larger, then our TranWare Lite, Desktop or Enterprise systems will be able to accommodate your needs. WinLimo is provided as a hosted solution, so that you can access your WinLimo system from any PC via the internet without having to install any software on your local PC. However, using WinLimo is unlike other hosted solutions that experience slow performance and often have a clunky web browser type of interface. WinLimo is hosted on tier 1 facilities using the latest Cloud Computing architecture that allows unlimited growth in terms of our overall infrastructure. That means that as we add new customers, we can grow the hosting solution dynamically to avoid slowing performance. Secondly, we use Microsoft Remote Desktop (Terminal Server) technology so that WinLimo will run, look and feel just like a locally installed program, rather than running it in a web browser. Thirdly, WinLimo can grow with your business. At any time, you can migrate to a Desktop or Enterprise version with the additional capabilities that you need, without ever losing any of your historical data.
Once the program has been installed, then it becomes a matter of adding your specific information, such as all your drivers, vehicles, accounts and your most common rates, etc. Usually, our customers are taking orders and dispatching in only a few days. Over time, the system becomes faster and easier to use, as your most popular pickup and destination landmarks are entered into the system. With Winlimo, you only enter repetitive information once. For example, once you add the airport as a landmark, booking a trip to or from the airport is just a matter of entering the short two or three digit code that you created for the airport.
How Do I Know If WinLimo is Right For My Company?
We suggest that you commence by reviewing the features of WinLimo as described in this website. Have a close look at the Feature Comparison on the bottom of the WinLimo home page. In addition to WinLimo, Future Quest provides 3 other turnkey dispatch solutions that are shown in this feature comparison. Chances are that if there are capabilities that you require in your business that are not available in WinLimo, they will be available in our Tranware Lite, Desktop or Enterprise systems. As all 4 of these systems share a common user interface and database design, you may migrate from one to the other without re-training or losing any historical data!
As a general overview, if your primary need is a system to help organize your calls, schedule and dispatch your trips and send out invoices to your customers, WinLimo will provide exceptional value. If, on the other hand, you require a system that not only helps you book and schedule trips, but automatically dispatches them to the most appropriate vehicle and driver, then you will want to look closely at our TranWare systems.
Most small limousine, taxi, black car and paratransit companies with fewer than 20 vehicles will be very pleased with WinLimo with its full CAD Dispatch capabilities coupled with a flexible trip pricing engine and very functional billing capability. Larger fleets or companies that provide a higher percentage of ASAP or adhoc trips (bookings that come in throughout the day for immediate pickup) can greatly benefit from one of WinLimo’s big brothers’ fully automatic dispatch capabilities.
What If I Later Discover I Need Something More?
WinLimo is a pure rental agreement with no contract time commitments. This should give you the the confidence to move forward, knowing that your risk is financially limited to a single month’s rent and the initial setup and training fees. With over 17 years of development and improvements, we are very confident in your satisfaction and that is why we can make this offer. We are actually making a bigger commitment and investment than we are asking new customers to make. We put significant time and effort into initial setup and training, such that we won’t see any return on our investment for several months. Your satisfaction is further assured with the migration paths we have laid out that allows our customers to grow congruently with their own growth and expanding requirements.
