B2B Payments

New B2B Taxi Mobile Launches

Easy Taxi, a global B2B mobile taxi app, is expanding operations in Qatar.

“With the Easy Taxi App, taxi goers no longer need to aimlessly wait for a taxi to come, or deal with the confusion of explaining their location-which is even more challenging if there are language barriers,” said Bilal Taha, City General Manager in Qatar. “Our services are fast and reliable, which is essential as Qatar continues to grow. Easy Taxi offers expats, visitors, and citizens the convenience of affordable transportation as they go to events, work, or school.”

The company said the app has reached more than 10 million global downloads and has more than 200,000 registered taxi drivers. Easy Taxi is available for Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows Phone devices, as well as for B2B clients through Easy Taxi Pro and Easy Taxi Corporate solutions. Easy Taxi is backed by iMena Holdings and Mobily Ventures, and is part of the Middle East Internet Group (MEIG), the leading Arabic internet platform which currently operates in seven countries. MEIG is home to three successful internet companies: Carmudi, Easy Taxi and Lamudi; and is supported by two global experts in e-commerce and the Middle Eastern markets: MTN Group and Rocket Internet.



The pressure on banks to modernize their payments capabilities to support initiatives such as ISO 20022 and instant/real time payments has been exacerbated by the emergence of COVID-19 and the compelling need to quickly scale operations due to the rapid growth of contactless payments, and subsequent increase in digitization. Given this new normal, the need for agility and optimization across the payments processing value chain is imperative.
