Nexus Vehicle Rental has introduced a new taxi booking service, in partnership with transport provider CMAC.

The new Nexus Go platform allows customers to access an online portal where they can book a vehicle in advance or on demand.

The service, which includes access to more than 2,500 UK taxi companies, also provides journey progress and location updates, and GPS tracking via Google Maps, with what3words location services.

Nexus Go users can also use Nexus’s IRIS rental booking platform to consolidate billing, incorporating journey fees and ancillary charges in full.

Users also have access to a customer management reporting suite in both online and offline accessible formats, providing visibility of all costs and charges associated with their fleet on a single source platform. 

Nexus Vehicle Rental CEO David Brennan said: “Over the last eighteen months, the Covid-19 pandemic has presented challenges across the rental industry, one being a shift in strategy from suppliers who are moving away from supporting shorter term hires such as one-day, one-way bookings. 

“In response to this change, we are providing a unique solution to our customers through our partnership with the managed ground transport experts CMAC Group to offer a new, flexible solution that will meet the changing needs of our customers and the wider industry.

“Similarly to Nexus, the team at CMAC are focused on putting the needs of their customers at the forefront of what they do. We are pleased to be launching this new passenger and taxi booking service with CMAC, to ensure our customers are able to get where they need to go, without the need to take on additional rental vehicles for single trips.”

CMAC chief executive Peter Slater said: “We’re committed to creating solutions that enable businesses to keep moving. Our dedicated team of experts are available round-the-clock 365 days a year to support businesses and their travellers, wherever they are in the world. We believe that CMACs commitment to client satisfaction remains unrivalled and we’re proud to be supporting Nexus on their mission to keep businesses moving efficiently and safely.

“We are delighted that Nexus has chosen CMAC as their managed taxi partner to deliver Nexus Go, their new passenger and taxi booking service, and we look forward to working closely with the team and their clients following the launch.”
