Deem Launches New Travel Platform for Travel Management Companies Serving the SMB Market

Leading TMCs Partner with Deem on Self Service Technology for Small to Mid-Size Companies

 

San Francisco, Calif., July 26, 2018 - Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the business travel industry, today announced the launch of Deem Rise, a new travel booking and management experience created for travel management companies (TMC) to profitably serve the needs of small to mid-sized (SMB) corporations. Deem released the product with a number of key TMCs, who are using the product for a growing customer base and an aggressive innovation roadmap, including Acendas Travel, Campbell Travel, Direct Travel and Ovation.


“Deem Rise advances the consumerization of corporate travel and expense by dramatically improving the economics of deploying new SMB customers,” said John F. Rizzo, CEO, COO and President, Deem. “No one is happy with the current SMB solutions on the market – they’re clunky, lack enterprise level functionality and lock TMCs into contracts that erode their overall business. They are not self-service or easily configured by corporations, which means more work for TMCs and their travel agents. The industry needs a platform that’s highly-functional, flexible, easy and cost-effective to implement - that’s why we created Deem Rise.”


Deem Rise is a mobile-first, self-service solution for TMCs who serve the needs of corporations and finance teams with small to mid-sized travel programs and fewer customization needs. It provides the most “traveler-loved” features of Deem’s enterprise level platform, Work Fource, and the integrated service provisions of partner TMCs, at a cost-effective scale.


“We believe the industry wants an online booking solution that transforms the business model for TMCs while optimizing traveler convenience and lowering travel costs,” said Rizzo. “Deem Rise is the only white-label solution of its kind where travelers can access personalized air, hotel and car content and functionality where ever they want it, that’s fully supported by TMCs.”


“The new experience is designed with mobile interactions in mind,” said Neil Markey, SVP Product and CIO, Deem. “This focus on efficient design and accessibility helps corporations manage their growing travel program - which helps them save money, improve their duty of care and ease employee frustrations with booking and managing travel.”


Deem Rise is a proven platform, with more than 47,000 Deem customers using a similar platform to book hundreds of thousands of trips a year and save their companies thousands of dollars in travel spend. The platform is easily configured by corporations and offers critical features travelers need to book and manage their trips. Deem recently announced the launch of a similar platform called Deem Emerging, which offers the same features and functionality directly to corporations.


TMC partners can integrate back-end systems with little effort and service clients efficiently. Deployment is simple and requires no professional services or customer support commitment. Deem Rise is designed to grow with the corporation – as their travel program expands, so does the travel booking experience. Corporations can move seamlessly to Deem Work Fource and into fully customized features and high-level support.


TMCs can super charge their travel management growth and profitably with the Deem powered booking experience, by providing essential functionality, including:

  • Easy configuration in less than 5 minutes to speed deployment
  • Managing end-to-end travel itineraries that align with their preferences and corporate spending 
  • Search results from Google, Sabre, Travelport 
  • Free and automatic 24-hour check-in for Southwest Airlines
  • Personalized air, hotel and car recommendations
  • Optional expense integration
