The latest wave of operators is led by Carey International, the world's largest chauffeur transportation company, and includes their Embarque and Carey services.

"We are thrilled to have this wave of market leaders on board led by Carey International, the world's largest chauffer transportation company and a world-class organization and brand."
"Deem brings a unique set of assets and advantages to the ground transportation industry including proven cloud and mobile capabilities and significant intellectual property," said Gary L. Kessler, CEO of Carey International. "As a longtime partner, we look forward to connecting to Deem's cloud and mobile services as a key part of our broader distribution strategy."
Deem continues to leverage its $200 million investment in its one-of-a-kind cloud and mobile platform to deliver a highly-scalable real-time network and mobile application to the chauffeured transportation industry, effectively leveling the technology playing field against the new class of transportation network companies (TNCs). Deem Car Service Cloud and Mobile will allow operators around the world to focus on their longstanding core strength of delivering the safest and highest quality ground service while corporations will be able to combine Duty-of-Care with savings and business travelers and consumers will enjoy world-class convenience, safety and service.
Companies can manage their corporate chauffeured transportation programs by using Deem Car Service as a standalone application or pairing it with Deem Travel, Deem Expense or the complete Deem suite to unlock the full savings potential of spend and expense management on the Deem platform. By combining user preferences, corporate policies and the negotiated rates between corporations and their preferred operators, all in a consumer-grade cloud and mobile experience, Deem Car Service will enable the perfect transaction for all stakeholders. In addition, users can create both business and personal profiles and seamlessly navigate between each to book advanced and real-time reservations for both business and leisure trips.
