Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the business travel industry, announced a partnership with SuperShuttle, owned by the largest provider of multiple modes of transport in North America, Transdev, to bring ground transportation to all levels of business travel. The new partnership adds SuperShuttle content, including shuttles, black cars, and SUV’s, alongside other ground transportation providers, inside Deem’s corporate traveler booking platform, Work Fource. The integration with SuperShuttle provides customized options to travelers based on policy, location, and itinerary – dynamically and in real-time.
“Incorporating SuperShuttle’s services into our ground and travel platforms continues our vision of creating a seamless travel experience for travelers everywhere,” said John F. Rizzo, CEO, COO and President, Deem. “With this addition, travelers have more options and more personalization when booking their transportation service. Just like booking hotels and air, ground transportation is seamless and easy.”
“We look forward to collaborating with Deem to give travelers faster access to SuperShuttle’s services,” said Jeff Kizilbash, President Consumer Services, Transdev North America. “We offer effortless options for getting to the airport and back, with rides customized perfectly to our traveler’s needs.”
Historically, chauffeured transportation was restricted to VIPs and high-level executives at corporations. Now, travelers using the Deem platform can access multiple tiers of ground transportation through all the Deem channels, including Deem Work Fource, Egencia, and GetThere. Travelers can also book anywhere, anytime through Deem’s mobile application.
“Our mission at Deem is to make the traveler’s life easier, all the while saving their companies money,” said Mike Daly, Vice President, Travel and Car Services, Deem. “Now, with the SuperShuttle integration, corporate travelers, travel management companies (TMCs), and corporations can book every component of their business trip in one place in only a few minutes.”
