I read with great interest last week a piece of news posted to the IIA site about an Inishowen company that had been awarded a worldwide patent for a novel SMS application called TEXTATAXI. It’s a service that allows you to book a taxi using a single number throughout Ireland. They have also set up similar systems in the UK and the States. Find out more about how it works on their site www.textataxi.com. The company who developed this simple yet effective system are called Text One Group and they are the newest member of the IIA. So a big welcome to them – I’ll be thinking about them on Saturday night!
