San Francisco, CA, July 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the business travel industry, announced a partnership with Lyft to integrate ride-sharing services into Deem’s ground transportation software. The Deem platform is used by more than 35,000 corporations and travel management companies (TMCs) around the world.

The proposed integration will add Lyft as a ground transportation option which will enable their service to all those using Deem’s ground applications. Millions of business travelers will have access to Lyft as a ground transportation option within the Deem Work Fource platform.


“This is a landmark partnership,” said John F. Rizzo, President and Chief Operating Officer, Deem. “We’re looking forward to integrating Lyft into our booking channels. Instead of using or connecting multiple applications, we want to make it easier for travelers and their travel agents to reserve a Lyft ride, right alongside their flight and hotel, in one simple, seamless process.”


Deem will integrate Lyft via its content aggregation hub. This will populate Lyft content to appear automatically in all existing Deem ground distribution channels, including Apollo, the Sabre Red Workspace, TripCase and within the online booking tool, GetThere.


“We are excited about working with Deem to improve the traveler experience and make Lyft more accessible on their platform,” said Amit Patel, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Lyft.


“Corporations, TMCs, travel arrangers and travelers themselves have been asking for a fully integrated ride-sharing option in their travel programs and we want to make it a reality,” said Mike Daly, Vice President, Travel and Car Services, Deem. “We'd like partners using Deem Work Fource to have the ability to add Lyft reservations directly in the global distribution system, which enables complete itinerary management and reporting.”
