Timesaving Mobile App for Superior Car Service

With e-receipts, a web-based dashboard and a space for notes, this timesaving mobile app offers superior car service.

By Barbara K. Adamski

Driving in the greater Toronto area — or even using a taxi service — can be a harrowing experience. And that’s where HireWinston can help. HireWinston is a mobile app that will make car service simple, convenient and stress-free for you and your team of road warriors.

HireWinston’s simplicity comes from three important features: intuitive technology that runs on an iPhone or Blackberry (Android and SMS versions coming soon), polite and reliable drivers, and a paperless payment system that includes automatic payment processing, trip details in a web-based dashboard and a receipt sent to your email. You can even set an automatic tipping rate with HireWinston to save the need for complex math.

Peter Schindler, senior engagement manager with Oliver Wyman, has been using HireWinston since the New Year, and averages one or two trips a week for both business and pleasure. HireWinston has some great benefits, according to Schindler, such as “being able to see the driver’s location while enroute to pickup.” In fact, Schindler likes HireWinston so much that he hopes they start a loyalty program. HireWinston is currently available only in the Greater Toronto Area. hirewinston.com
