Meet Sid, a taxi driver in London who has downloaded apps on his Doro that help him at work and to keep in touch with his family.

“I’ve discovered so much and it’s taken very little effort.”

Sid, 69

Taxi driver and grandfather

My wife Elaine and I live north of London in a town called Borehamwood. Elaine has been more adaptive when it comes to modern technology, but now I’m beginning to see the uses of it. My daughter thought I would never be able to get used to a smart phone, but it’s much easier than I thought. It really is a very practical tool.

I’ve been a London cab driver for over 45 years. I know my way around the city, but I still don’t know every single street in London. Construction, road maintenance and traffic are also variables I cannot control but are useful to know. With Doro, I can easily use Google maps on my phone instead of an atlas to know what the roads look like in real time.

I’ve also downloaded some other applications specific to my line of work that help me get more customers. I can also take credit card payment via my phone, which is amazing. In modern technology we’ve come a hell of a long way haven’t we?

 

A smartphone has helped in my personal life as well. My daughter sends me photos and videos of the grandchildren and – though I’m not entirely sure why – my wife and I definitely communicate more. And now, after using Doro, I’m not afraid to try other new forms of technology.
