“We believe that GroundLink’s New York City customers will be excited to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi powered by Karma,” said GroundLink CEO Bruce Rogoff. “Our clients have come to expect a level of innovation and service from GroundLink that goes beyond any other ground transportation provider. This partnership with Karma is a natural fit that furthers our commitment to providing the most cutting-edge, technology-based service in the industry.”
“We love how GroundLink’s premium service helps riders get around town. Now, with the addition of Karma Wi-Fi, we’re making everyone’s ride a connected one,” said Karma CEO Steven van Wel. “This partnership with GroundLink marks the next step in Karma’s global initiative to unlock access to Wi-Fi on-the-go.”
Karma’s free Wi-Fi will be available for riders, in select GroundLink vehicles, to use with their mobile phone, tablet or laptop. This new feature will only add to GroundLink’s industry-leading technology that already allows for multiple booking options (online, phone or via an award-winning mobile app), provides the industry’s only on-time pickup guarantee policy, offers worldwide availability, delivers transparent pricing, has the ability to track rides in real-time and affords a centralized dashboard for corporate users.
Rogoff expects Karma’s Wi-Fi to appeal particularly to GroundLink’s business customers. In fact, for travel managers, GroundLink provides a complete set of tools designed to help corporations track and manage their ground spend. Leveraging a web-based central dashboard, GroundLink is able to provide travel managers with a list of all upcoming and completed rides, overall spend and a breakdown of the company’s top routes and passengers. In addition, travel managers can easily add or delete employees with the click of a mouse, making program management a breeze. Wi-Fi in select cars in New York City is just one more reason travel managers are looking to book with GroundLink.
GroundLink is the next generation car service that leverages a proprietary technology platform to provide easy, reliable ground transportation for business travelers worldwide. The GroundLink mobile app was cited by USA Today as best in class. GroundLink was also awarded the ODIGEO Award for Travel Innovation and the Creative Alliance Award for Travel Innovation by leading travel industry firm, PhoCusWright. GroundLink has teams in North America and Europe with headquarters in New York, NY.
