Minicabster Announces Part-Acquisition of Rival Minicab App, Bounce
Minicabster is thrilled to announce the exciting part-acquisition of competitor Bounce, as it continues to lead the evolution of the minicab sector in new, dynamic ways. The leading London minicab booking service has taken over a number of Bounce’s clients and their app after the company ceased trading last month, demonstrating Minicabster’s ongoing commitment to innovation and growth within the highly competitive minicab sector.
The part-takeover looks like a match made in minicab heaven – Bounce was an app which allowed users to book their nearest TfL licensed minicab, with a firm focus on quality control and guaranteed low prices. These key features are in perfect alignment with Minicabster’s own ethos, which is based around convenience, comfort and affordability when navigating the UK’s busiest cities.
The move also means that existing Bounce users will not be left stranded by the app’s closure. They’ll now have access to Minicabster’s network of more than 10,000 licensed minicabs nationwide – and with the recent launch of the brand new Minicabster app, it takes just two taps to book affordable transport to any location.
Irshad Khan, Business Lead and Head of Technology at Minicabster, states, “Running a tech business in the competitive minicab space has been a challenge over the last year, but we’re thrilled to be the first European cab tech company to buy a competitor’s assets in this way. It’s been a turbulent few years for the industry as a whole, with many disruptive new apps hitting the market, but we are always pushing for new ways in which we can take the lead within the minicab sector. I see more mergers and acquisitions taking place in the near future, as Minicabster continues to foster innovation in this fast-evolving industry.”
Sadie Gee, Business Lead at Minicabster, adds, “The part-acquisition is really exciting news for us here at Minicabster, and we’d like to warmly welcome all existing Bounce passengers to our service. We’re proud of our record on punctuality and reliability, and our consistently high standards of customer service will ensure that the transition from Bounce to Minicabster will be a seamless one for all passengers.”
Over the coming weeks, the Bounce app already installed on many smartphones will turn into the brand new Minicabster app – an industry-leading development which now requires just two taps to order a punctual, affordable minicab to any location. All of the new features within the app were created with the passenger in mind, and a slick, streamlined interface makes the user experience a dream. Whether users are heading to an important meeting, jetting off for a city break or unleashing their inner urban explorer, Minicabster takes care of the journey, so passengers can enjoy the destination.
