The addition of GroundLink to the organization will help to finalize their direct on-demand product for the corporate travel space. MTG and its affiliates will now be able to provide Fortune 1000 companies with an on-demand solution that will meet both their standards of compliance and corporate travel needs. As part of MTG’s Duty of Care, the company will continue to perform the extensive background checks and testing expected from corporate clients. The addition of the GroundLink distribution channel will immediately benefit from the increased capacity and geographic advantage of MTG’s existing global network.
“Our acquisition of these separate and unique technology platforms is a game changer for the industry,” said Scott Solombrino, Marcou Transportation Group spokesperson and president & CEO of Dav El/BostonCoach. “These companies provide us the opportunity to directly compete with the TNCs, as they try to infiltrate the corporate travel market, and will allow the industry to compete in the on-demand market faster than originally anticipated. The implementation of auto dispatch and geospatial pricing can now be integrated into our already existing product to roll out the industry’s first on-demand service in the corporate market.”
MTG is taking measures to ensure that the Limo Anywhere software platform, which is a provider to thousands of operators throughout the world, remains a leading platform available to the chauffeured ground transportation industry. With developers all over the world, including India, Serbia, Ukraine and America, MTG will have the largest development team in the industry, which is necessary to level the playing field with the TNCs.
“We are thrilled to have a strategic investor that will help to advance the technology on our existing platforms,” said Liz Carisone, CEO of GroundLink.
According to Solombrino, “This will give companies using the Limo Anywhere software platform the opportunity to integrate and transact business in an easier and more efficient manner and to provide growth to their companies. The combined network of companies will give us the largest footprint of legitimate and compliant chauffeured car operators in the world.”
Liz Carisone and Mark Gentry, president of Limo Anywhere, will remain with the company and in their current roles. Limo Anywhere will remain independent and separate from the chauffeured car operations.
Terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.
