Deem, a mobile and cloud technology provider for ground transportation operators, and GroundWidgets, a ground transportation software and technology development company, announced they have resolved all legal disputes between them and entered into an agreement for the integration of the SantaCruz platform with Deem’s Cloud and Mobile Network Platform.
This integration, to be completed in 60 days, will allow reservations booked through the Deem platform to reach the SantaCruz back-office system and its fleets of chauffeured drivers.
“We’re pleased to have put our differences behind us and renew our business relationship with GroundWidgets. We look forward to integrating their technology with our own,” said John Rizzo, president and COO of Deem. “Deem and GroundWidgets have been at the forefront of getting chauffeured transportation operators deployed on next-generation technologies and our partnership moving forward will benefit the ground transportation industry as a whole.”
The SantaCruz platform was developed to integrate all facets of technology like mobile communications, GPS, telephony, corporate bookings and social media into a cohesive platform. The open architecture and work flow enable the system to be customized for each operator’s unique business requirements.
"We share Deem's excitement that we can move forward together as industry collaborators to create a very bright future for the ground transportation industry," said Apurva Patel, chairman and CEO at GroundWidgets. Apurva will be participating in a technology panel at the LCT Leadership Summit, May 22-24 in Miami Beach.
The Deem Car Service applications include a SaaS back-office, auto-dispatch capabilities for advanced-schedule and real-time reservations, mobile and online applications, and more. Operators on the Deem Car Service network are also able to offer their customers access to Deem’s full range of travel and expense management applications.
