About the client
Founded in 2010, Pickmecab specializes in 24/7 private transporation. This innovative company offers a reliable, cost-effective and eco-friendly transportation alternative.Pickmecab quickly expanded into major French cities such as Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nantes, and Toulouse.
The client chose Pentalog and our Pentalabbs incubation program to develop a project strategy and technology tools to meet the needs of their market. We provided these services:
- Declining the platform on mobile devices (responsive design, declining on iOS and Android);
- Adding new features to back office and Android applications: management, assignment of routes to drivers, and validation of routes by drivers from the tablet application;
- Developing a carpooling iOS mobile app.

Pentalog’s business analyst, who was a liaison between the client and our development team, wrote the project specifications and executed acceptance tests.
Pentalog quickly provided a qualified and experienced web services team to meet Pickmecab’s tight schedule and eliminate project roadblocks. Our professional business analyst guided the client during every stage of the project.
After review to pass on a responsive design, the Pickmecab site enters iOS and Android application and offers many features to customers and drivers :
- The integrated Paybox solution allows customers to conveniently and securely pay for trips
- The geolocation function displays an assigned car’s position and estimated time of arrival, plus available cars nearby;
- The Android application for drivers provides a better tool to manage current and potential trips;
- We modified the site design to include new widgets for simplifying trip reservations and using airport shuttles, which has increased Pickmecab’s service locations;
- The carpool iOS application, equipped with the geolocation feature, allows users to operate in driver mode or passenger mode and integrates the immediate or scheduled booking of a trip request.
In addition to the front office, the Pentalog team also collaborated with the back office, allowing them automated processing of reservations and web services. This ensures communication with Magento and integration of a payment module via Paybox.

Pickmecab - What I appreciate about our collaboration with Pentalog is the flexibility
What I appreciate about our collaboration with Pentalog is the flexibility of the team’s size, their high level of expertise, and excellent knowledge of French.
BewellConnect has been working with Pentalog since 2014 on several software telemedicine projects. Their professionalism, expertise, guidance, methodology, and timing have been wonderful. Pentalog is demonstrating competency in the required skillsets and good communications despite the remote working relationship. We want to express our gratitude to Pentalog for their productive collaboration with BewellConnect.
Pentalog helped MoovOne to build a complex application with good backend and frontend developers. It was a big technical challenge and the mission continued after the release to improve the product with our teams. The collaboration and the project were a success. We are very satisfied with this partnership.
