Of course, you could also use Number masking!
If you want to take further steps, so there is no contact between the client and the driver, outside the hire. Then you can allocate virtual numbers, that mask real numbers for the duration of the hire.

"... with CDS Connect you are joining a family of like-minded individuals and companies nationwide. This allows you to satisfy your customers' requirements, even when journeys are being covered by your partners"
- for your clients
When you are doing a job for one of your partners, who is not on CDS. Then we believe it is important that you can preserve their brand interest and identity. With this in mind, not only do all communications to your client have their brand logo, identity, and contact details. Moreover, this preserves your relationships with partner chauffeur companies, and helps to gain their trust.
Keeping control of your Pricing and invoicing
Another key point, so that the job owner can retain control of the hire. Either you work out the cost to the client and price to the partner, and lock it in. Then pass it across to your partner in your chauffeur network, who then does the job for you. Or, you can give your partner the freedom to set the prices and you just add your margin. However, it is you who always invoices your client.
