Kirkham Chauffeur services, a long established family business, based in Cambridge have made the move from the more taxi-based Cordic system, to implement our cloud-based chauffeur system.
Following their merger with Voyager Executive Cars, also in Cambridge, Kirkham Chauffeur Services now has Joanne Hickman, daughter of the founder at the helm. Going forward together, this merger sees the creation of a unified professional front to take on the chauffeuring industry in the Cambridge area.
Kirkham Chauffeur Services are immensely proud of where they have come from, having accumulated 40 years of chauffeuring experience in the industry. The company began in 1976, and were one of the first companies in the region to provide airport transfers to the local business community.
Today, as then, they have built their enviable reputation, focusing their efforts on providing the best service with ultimate professionalism. This is reflected in their choice through the years on the most prestigious vehicles for executive transport, from the Ford Granada and Jaguar to the Mercedes today. Furthermore, the drivers are always presented in a smart uniform, and trained to provide the best service quality to their clients.
Jo has worked hard to bring the company into the modern age, adapting and changing the company to succeed in this challenging industry. She has ensured that the Kirkham name remains synonymous with excellence, quality, reliability, professionalism and duty of care. And, being located near Cambridge they are ideally placed to continue to service their corporate and private clients, with the core base of the business concentrated on corporate ground transport and airport and port transfers.
The transition from the old working practices to the use of technology can be a challenge, but one that is vital to remain competitive and current. In Jo’s words
“When we first started in 1976 we wrote everything in a diary. After that we progressed to sticky notes so we could move them about from driver to driver. When computers and the internet arrived we designed our own basic database.
Moving on from there we went to Cordic, eight years ago but found it very rigid and aimed towards taxis not chauffeurs. CDS so far has been fabulous!”
Our Chauffeur Software is designed to be used from owner drivers, right up to large companies operating from different bases, and it even works seamlessly between countries due to it being a genuinely 100% web-based system. The system focuses on delivering a quality of service to the client, they are at the very heart of the business. In contrast to the taxi systems out there that prioritise maximising hire throughput. We believe that the chauffeuring industry is significantly different, and as such we want to help you build and consolidate your reputation and brand, by creating solid client relationships. The system is designed around how you operate as a chauffeur company, and we ensure that the design and continual evolution of the system is based on feedback from our clients, the experts!
We want you to call us and talk over your requirements, we will never try and sell you our system if we feel it won’t suit your particular situation. If after an initial chat you decide you want to see the system, we organise an integrated online demo around your schedule, we know you are busy, so evenings, early mornings and weekends are possible. It should take around an hour of your time, and if you are still interested, we offer a month’s free trial.
