Overview

Cabify, founded in 2011 in Spain, offers chauffeured car transport services aimed primarily at business users, with online ordering via web or mobile and convenient account or credit card payment options. Cabify has more than 100,000 users in Spain, rising by 20 percent a month, and is also growing rapidly in Latin America.

Business need
Cabify faced rapid data growth as it expanded globally. How could the company ensure sufficient scalability without tying up valuable technical resources in low-value, routine database administration?

Solution
By migrating to IBM® Cloudant®, a NoSQL database-as-a-service platform built for the cloud, Cabify has gained a flexible, extremely scalable data management layer that supports its growth ambitions.

Benefits
Enables Cabify to focus on improving its product and customer service. With data protection, 24/7 global support, cost-efficiency and scalability, there are no limits to further successful expansion.
