During a visit to Limo Anywhere’s headquarters in Irving, Texas, I interviewed president Mark Gentry and founder Max Paltsev about their latest product, The Driver Anywhere Network (DA Net). Founded in 2004, the company has carved out a sizeable market share in the industry with its easy-to-use, cloud-based reservation and management software.

Now, they are making it easier for small- and mid-size operators to farm out rides to other markets by using the Driver Anywhere Network. The function is accessed through the Limo Anywhere main dashboard, where operators can quickly query a ride in one of 40 cities across the U.S., and see availability in standardized pricing.

All affiliate limo companies are Limo Anywhere users and have been vetted. The chauffeurs also use the Driver Anywhere App, which lets chauffeurs make real-time notifications on the status of the trip, such as “client picked up” or “client dropped off.”

Limo Anywhere founder Max Paltsev believes that with the new DA Network function, operators will be able to increase their services to their clientele without having to invest in the infrastructure of an affiliate manager.

    It is a great feature except for the insurance part. I've tried addressing this with Mark but that did not go anywhere. I will not use it until they figure out how to cover all bases with respect to insurance. All they can offer to me is General Liability Certificate, which not the same as Commercial Auto Liability. Everyone who uses this system simply go for $$$ by ignoring liability aspect. There is a way to go around it by no one reached back to me.
