Our team have held senior roles at some of London’s largest taxi companies including Addison Lee which
places us in the unique position of having real-world experience of the industry and genuine operational
This means that we have custom-built our software in response to genuine needs in the industry. Our
solution is flexible, scalable, configurable and continuously updated to keep delivering you new features
as the market changes. Sherlock Taxi is developed by Haulmont Technology which was co-founded in 2008 by
our Managing Director, Paul Lacey. Prior to launching Haulmont, Paul worked at Addison Lee as project
lead when they revolutionised their taxi dispatch software in the early 2000s. The goal for Addison Lee
was to develop a taxi solution which could automate most bookings to increase fleet efficiency and enable
rapid scalability and growth.
Paul and the Addison Lee team were originally working with another software provider
when they realised that actually, there could be a better way to deliver the project goals. Paul and his
business partner, Alex Zotkin created Haulmont Technology. They built Addison Lee’s Shamrock system and
the world’s most advanced auto-allocator which can automate up to 100% of jobs. A decade later, Haulmont
remains Addison Lee’s exclusive taxi software partner.
In 2011, the team began working on Sherlock Taxi, the sister solution to Addison Lee’s Shamrock system and
we now support taxi fleets across the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
The Sherlock business unit is now one part of Haulmont Technology, a company which employs over 600 staff
in various locations. Sherlock’s team has grown since its inception and now comprises 60 staff, many of
whom have worked for the business for multiple years. We are proud to be an excellent employer that
retains staff who as a result, have excellent knowledge and exposure to various customers across the globe.
