Veezu celebrates another successful year at Fast Growth 50

Following yet another exciting year of growth, Veezu has made it in to Wales’ Fast Growth 50 Awards for a 4th year in a row, which was attended by over 900 representatives from Wales’ fastest growing companies. The business achieved growth of 115.8% between 2015 and 2017, which helped Veezu win the prestigious award for Sustainable Growth (sponsored by Barclays) for a 3rd year running.

Nathan Bowles, CEO, said “The success of Veezu is a result of an incredibly strong team, along with our continued investment in our consumer booking application. By introducing the booking app we have simplified the process of ordering, tracking and paying for a taxi in the local communities we operate in. This is a first for these towns and it has proved extremely popular, we are now seeing over 40% of our passenger journeys being booked using this platform.

We have also been fortunate to benefit from the fantastic support of our funders Santander and Beechbrook Capital who have provided us with the capacity to execute our exciting growth plans, this has seen us continue our organic and acquisitive growth strategy.

We are proud of our local brands, Dragon Taxis, A2B Radio Cars, V Cars and Amber Cars and we intend to build and develop on this regional platform in the next 12 months, using advanced digital marketing techniques to better talk to our customers.

The continued success and growth of Veezu will rest on our ability to develop strategies that deliver excellent experiences for the passengers who rely on us to move easily within their towns and cities.

We are fully committed to leading the way in the private hire taxi sector and as part of the burgeoning Mobility as a Service (MaaS) sector. Our ongoing investment in technology, safety and customer service initiatives, will also ensure we provide an excellent passenger and driver experience. This, along with a great team will lead to an exciting platform for growth going into 2019.”
