Jyrney Land Transport Platform Wins BTS Europe Innovation Faceoff


The Jyrney ground transport mobility platform has won jury honors at the Business Travel Innovation Faceoff 2022 at the Business Travel Show Europe in London.

The judging panel, which included Microsoft travel technology Steve Clagg, Service Now EMEA regional travel manager Carine Morin, EY innovation and technology leader Ian Spearing and Jack Dow, CEO of Grapevine and the winner of last year’s showdown, ranked Jyrney first among nine competitors. show presenters. Clagg said the company is “on its way to becoming the advanced decision engine for selecting, managing and purchasing all ground transportation.”

Based in Manchester, UK, Jyrney has developed an API as well as a white-label platform that can connect travel professionals to thousands of available ground transportation options, including taxis, vehicles with driver and car rental suppliers. Last month it partnered with the UK’s Advantage Travel Partnership to launch a mobility hub through which members of Advantage’s travel management company can offer bookings to customers through Jyrney.

The jury praised Jyrney’s data aggregation capabilities, advanced analytics app and rebooking capabilities, which can monitor dispatch data and move travelers to another provider if their service is late. . They encouraged Jyrney to expand its sustainability options and consider adding features to include internal mobility options, such as corporate shuttles.

Jyrney CEO Daniel Price, who made a presentation on behalf of the company, said ground transportation presents a giant revenue opportunity for TMCs as it currently accounts for less than 3% of all transactions. The opportunity is even greater as companies shift to working from home or hybrid office setups, he said.

“The daily commute is now a weekly commute, and it’s a business trip,” Price said.

The judges also awarded honorable mentions to two presenters: Arise, a delivery technology provider that connects hotels to TMCs and online booking tools; and TripStax, a travel technology provider that connects a variety of business applications to a central data processing core for easier data integration and management. Other puck drop presenters include Amadeus’ Cytric, Corporate Traveler, HRS, Simard, Table4one and TripShift.
