I find it interesting to read about people who have worked hard on building a business from the ground up. Amos Tamam has done just that. He trained as an electrical engineer at Tel Aviv University in Israel, then he came to the United States and began servicing taxis at a fleet garage in New York City. Now he is the CEO of Verifone Transportation Systems, Inc. Amos Tamam possessed ingenuity and a creativity to develope the processes and products to solve problems for fleet owners. Ultimately, the greatest invention was to provide the fleet owners the ability to process credit cards using wireless technology.
The company has a record of the passengers and if a passenger leaves something in the taxi, it can be returned. This was also a great benefit for the taxi companies and the people using taxis. It provides a receipt for the passenger and the convenience of not worrying about cash. Amos Tamam is a man of great ingenuity that we can all benefit from.
