eConnect Cars choose Echo booking management platform and mobile app

Chauffeur-driven eConnect Cars, which has a fleet solely made up of electric vehicles, has chosen the Echo booking app and vehucke dispatch platform from Magenta Technology.

The Echo app can also combine personal and business accounts for user simplicity.  The easy to use app works on all Apple and Android phones and devices.

“The advanced technology behind the app is consistent with eConnect’s use of advanced electric vehicles and ensures that passengers have a smooth and stress free experience from start to finish,” said Alistair Clarke, founder and managing director.

Matt Borland, sales director of Magenta Technology added: “eConnect Cars represent the future of private hire in cities and have shown that running a zero-emissions fleet is already viable.  There are operational challenges running an all-electric fleet. 

"However, by employing the flexible and multi-functional Echo platform, eConnect Cars can handle the added complexities of managing an electric fleet, such as taking into account variables such as range and charging network limitations.”
