NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Last month, CMT announced the sale of Mobile Knowledge, a taxi dispatch solutions provider, to iCabbi, a provider of cloud-based taxi dispatch programs throughout Europe and North America.
As part of this newly formed global strategic alliance, CMT will become iCabbi’s preferred payment provider for its global customer base and, in return, iCabbi will become CMT’s preferred dispatch partner for its customer base.
