Limos.com Introduces ForGround.com, a Free Online Business Travel Management Solution
Former Hotwire.com team aims to save companies millions by giving business travelers access to the world's largest online competitive marketplace for limousine services.
Limos.com announced its new business travel product this week - called ForGround.com. The company expects ForGround.com to save business travelers an average of 30% on chauffeured car services worldwide by combining its competitive online marketplace of local transportation suppliers with travel manager controls for policy settings and reporting.
So we set out to save business travelers time and money with the easy online access to the world's best local limousine companies - and give travel mangers the best controls over this tough category - that's ForGround.com."
Clark states that ForGround provides 24 hour traveler support, $5 million insurance coverage over all rides booked via the site and private-labeling for companies that would like to apply their own logo and web address (e.g., Acme.ForGround.com). The ForGround.com team was recently joined by Leslie Bernauer who directed global travel for Lehman Brothers and managed a ground travel budget of over $50 million per year.
"We were thrilled that Leslie joined us to bring her wealth of expertise to our product - and to help our travel manger clients directly" states Clark. ForGround.com was featured in an NBTA Spotlight presentation on Monday, where Clark stated that users from over 4,000 companies signed up for the service during its 2 month beta period. He stated that ForGround.com offers all of its online services for free with no online booking fees. The service is now live and travelers or their travel mangers can create free accounts at forground.com.
