Veezu is a taxi operator having over 12,000 drivers covering 5 UK cities.

The Veezu team saw an opportunity to offer better customer service by allowing students to order using their mobile phones. The core focus of our work was to enable customers to book within 5 seconds, much faster than a phone call.

Since 2012, Pocketworks has developed and evolved apps and the supporting cloud infrastructure to help consumers book taxis through their phones.

The app gives consumers instant booking, payment and journey tracking.
