On hearing the news, their CEO, Raoul Jarvis told PocketGPSWorld.com "I can't believe we won, I am very excited". He explained that their phone application, Taxi4me will get you the best taxi service for your trip, anywhere in the world, circumnavigating language barriers. Local taxi companies confirm availability and make offers. The customer then chooses the best time and price to suit.

Dial Plus's solution enables enhances the standard phone call experience by automatically and simultaneously providing dynamic, contextually relevant visual information about the called or calling party before, during and after the call is over.

Colombia Games’s solution, ToGetThere, allows people that want to share a ride to create a trustful community that helps save fuel and money by traveling together.
