SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Deem, the leading Commerce-as-a-Service (CaaS) company, and the Limousine Association of New Jersey (LANJ), the professional membership organization for chauffeured transportation operators and suppliers doing business in the Garden State, today announced that LANJ recommends Deem Car Service as a technology provider for its 130 association members.
Deem is leveraging 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, effectively leveling the technology playing field against the new class of transportation network companies (TNCs). The cloud network and mobile application will optimize operations and maximize fleet utilization for chauffeured transportation operators, provide advance reservations and ride-hailing services for corporations and customers alike, substantially enhance customer care and safety and, most importantly, customer privacy and data security.
"The Limousine Association of New Jersey is one of the most respected voices in the chauffeured transportation industry and their recommendation provides yet another major stamp of approval for what will be an industry-changing technology initiative," said Patrick Grady, Founder and CEO of Deem.
Since Deem announced a groundbreaking strategic alliance with the National Limousine Association (NLA) earlier this year, scores of leading operators, including global leaders such as Carey International, Music Express, Pure Luxury, EmpireCLS and Flyte Tyme have signed agreements with Deem for its new Car Service Cloud Network and Mobile application. In total, more than 100 chauffeured transportation operators have signed with Deem as their exclusive technology provider and joined Deem's Affiliate Connect network, the largest and most trusted network of chauffeured transportation companies globally, spanning more than 80 countries and 700 cities.
"Our industry and its operators have been eagerly awaiting a technology solution to improve our operations and deliver the level of service our customers expect from chauffeured transportation," said Jeffrey Shanker, President of LANJ. "Deem certainly provides a credible and comprehensive Cloud Network and Mobile service and we're incredibly excited to collaborate and support the strides made by Patrick and his team to help transform our industry."
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.
