24 Seven Teams up with KAZAM to Boost Cabbie Coverage

24 Seven Communications Ltd has teamed up with British smartphone brand KAZAM on a project aimed at ensuring taxi drivers stay connected to a mobile network more of the time. 24 Seven’s roaming SIM Jump, which can switch between three of the UK’s biggest mobile networks, will become natively compatible with two of KAZAM’s leading models, offering taxi drivers better mobile coverage.

24 Seven launched the Jump SIM card in 2015 and have seen impressive uptake. One of the foremost industries to take advantage of improved coverage, was Private Hire and Taxis firms, with thousands of the Jump SIM cards now keeping taxi drivers connected more of the time. However, this is the first time 24 Seven has partnered with a manufacturer to ensure Jump is an officially supported network carrier. This deal means that Jump will now be the first natively compatible roaming SIM with the KAZAM Trooper X5.5 handset, allowing for an integrated solution and seamless connectivity.

David Samuel, MD and Founder of 24 Seven, said: “Private hire has been a breakthrough industry for the Jump SIM. Taxi and private hire firms can see the benefits of better coverage by using a national roaming SIM, and our partnership with KAZAM will give an even more compelling reason to choose this solution. We pioneered the UK’s first national roaming SIM and since launch, it’s helped numerous businesses to stay connected.”

Andy Lee, Country Manager (UK & Ireland) of KAZAM said: “If taxi professionals lose connection, it can be totally debilitating for their business. When they slip into a mobile black-spot, or if their network fails, that can make a real difference to profitability. Taxis need to stay connected (for voice and data) more of the time, from the point of view of accurate fares, ensuring reliable directions and not least from a safety point of view. When you combine the benefits of the Jump SIM with KAZAM’s unique proposition (Free screen replacement, 3 year warranty and KAZAM Rescue), it is a truly compelling solution.”
