We make taxis more fun!
Cabture is an ad-tech company, founded in 2014 in Amsterdam. It focuses its business activities around the transportation, being especially active in the taxi industry. Cabture originates from a passion for traveling and a desire to utilize lost travel time. During our journey, we realized that this topic is much more complex than just providing onboard entertainment. Data collected and analyzed by Cabture allows taxi organizations to allocate their resources more efficiently, increase service and offer additional features.
Revenues of Cabture come from advertising in and on taxis, and from taxi drivers and companies who are happy to pay for increased quality, effectiveness, and for an additional service for their customers.
Being currently active in Amsterdam, Cabture is preparing for international, and sectoral expansions.
CabTab is a digital screen, available for passengers sitting on a back seat of a taxi. It delivers information about the taxi driver, the city, shows a map, allows you to read news, book tickets for museums, check-in for your next flight, watch a movie, or just browse the internet. It provides Cabture with revenue, through sold advertising space. Above, you can see our brand new interface prepared for use of TCA in Amsterdam.
Management dashboard allows taxi companies to see all their vehicles in the real time, access all statistics about their drivers, or check the ratings. Cabture’s team is uploading advertising banners, and accessing a significant amount of data through the dashboard. Additionally, it is possible to contact any selected, certain groups, or all drivers through the portal.
Hospitality solution allows hotels, business buildings, restaurants, and others to order a CabTab taxi. Venues are sure that their guests will be always picked up by the highest quality taxi, they can precisely know what time will it arrive, book cars for exact time and amount of people required, or cancel the order without making one phone call. After entering the taxi, passengers are welcomed by CabTab on behalf of their origin venue- thanking them for their visit and inviting them again.
Cabvertisement was the first source of revenue for Cabture. Applying stickers to the vehicles changed them into moving billboards. This solution attracted multiple clients allowing Cabture to cooperate with world’s biggest companies.

After years of systematic work, we have a product that we are proud of and that is ready to be shown to the world. Advanced functionalities, modular construction that allows easily add new modules, and the quality of the software put us in a position where we always wanted to be.
Taxi partners across the world are contacting us to receive a proposal. New York, Stockholm, Istanbul, Doha, Kopenhagen, Berlin, Frankfurt, Antwerp, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Capetown, Prague- these are the cities that expressed an interest in acquiring our technology.
We are in more advanced stages of negotiations with taxi partners in Dubai, Vienna, and of course Amsterdam. Starting at the end of September, our new software will be deployed in the fleet belonging to TCA taxi- the biggest and the most renown taxi company in Amsterdam. Our aim is to be active in those 3 mentioned cities within 6 months from now. In Amsterdam, we would like to build a network of around 1000 vehicles by the end of 2018. In Dubai, we will aim for at least 5000 CabTab taxis and in Vienna at least 500 taxis with our solution, also by the end of 2018. This year, we want to have pilots running in Vienna and Dubai, and full-time operations- as we already do- in Amsterdam.
Additionally, we are in an advanced stage of negotiations related to an A series. We hope to close a €1M.+ investment this year, and based on our progress, we have no doubts that it is feasible. Such investment would greatly accelerate an expansion into the new markets and would allow us growing at unachievable so far pace. Please, contact us for more details.
We are working on our A-series and things are looking more and more tangible. However, a process of acquiring such a big investment always takes time. In the meantime, we have to keep growing and deliver on certain contracts. To do so, we need some additional funding, which is why we are addressing investors, asking for support. We want to include additional features in our software, which will make it easier for us to sell our solution to further taxi companies. We have to grow our sales team, to be able to achieve better results. Eventually, we need capital reserves to be able to deal with payment term pressures from the side of our customers and suppliers.
