Accessing Limos Anywhere

Posted on December 31, 2009 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

SAN FRANCISCO — Reservation/booking provider Limos.com and software provider Limo Anywhere have integrated their technologies to allow reservation information from limos.com to feed directly into the computer systems of operators using Limo Anywhere.

This direct interface of the two systems — the first and largest such integration in the chauffeured transportation industry — will avoid the need for third party technologies.

Limos.com arranges limousine service online via its Web site. Users compare free instant prices based on their location, vehicle preferences, and destinations, and then limousine services signed up with limos.com compete to earn the client’s business.

Limo Anywhere is a limousine reservation management software for small to mid-size transportation companies that offers features such as customer account management, accounting, secure online reservation placement, real-time credit card processing, flight tracking, and mapping.

As the leading software for the chauffeured transportation industry, Limo Anywhere has more than 1,700 operator-users in 24 nations worldwide. Meanwhile, about half of the 1,500 operators signed up with limos.com use Limo Anywhere.

“This puts reservations into Limo Anywhere and will be a huge advantage to users and operators,” said T.J. Clark, CEO of San Francisco-based Limos.com. “This can bring can bring limos.com details into the reservation system.”

The integrated arrangement is being “beta-tested” by about a dozen operators in January, said Max Paltsev, president of Dallas-based Limo Anywhere. It will be officially launched at the 2010 International LCT Show in Las Vegas Jan. 25-27, 2010, and customer conversions will be made into mid-February.

“This saves time, money, and human error,” Clark said. “Our goal is to streamline process of taking customers from web customers.”

The integration, developed over several months, is one more way technology helps operators network and overcome barriers to trade rides and take jobs through the Internet, Clark said.

The integrated system does not involve any additional transactional fees for operators.
