iCars Conquers the Data Layer


Last month, Compose sat down with Alec Summers, CTO of iCars, an on-demand technology service for ground transportation focusing on black car service. If you need real black car service for your business, iCars takes care of everything.

As an on-demand service, iCars has to process data quickly and reliably. For example, every morning, iCars gets the flight info for an airline's pilots and flight crew. They quickly import the information and coordinate with black car drivers to ensure that the crew is picked up, taken to their hotel, and returned to the airport before their next flight.
