Warrnambool Radio Taxis, from Australia has chosen the Simoco Xd Tier II DMR system for installation across its fleet of vehicles. The deal marks the first end-to-end use of the Simoco Xd range for operation in a fleet of taxis.

The order for Warrnambool Radio Taxis - which has operated for nearly 40 years - was secured by Simoco channel partner Tctek Services. The installation includes a new single-site Simoco Xd DMR Tier II network, ensuring coverage across the region. Simoco Xd mobiles will be fitted to the 12-vehicle fleet.

The taxi company needed a system to replace its existing analog radio and complement its extant mobile-based national dispatching system, while maintaining security and privacy across its fleet. The Simoco system will give increased call capacity and digital voice clarity, and improve customer service, responsiveness and driver safety.
