Mobility service Jyrney has formed a strategic partnership with taxi dispatch specialist Magenta Technology to provide passengers with enhanced journey connectivity.
Jyrney’s platform brings together all modes of ground transport, from taxi to chauffeur to car rental and car share. The company is targeting integration of its API driven solution with business travel management companies and mobility platforms wanting to offer mobility options to their customers.
Through the partnership, Magenta’s private hire fleet operators will be integrated into Jyrney’s network and become available to its customers.
The partnership creates automated end-to-end booking processes, delivering benefits such as:
- on-demand driver availability
- journey tracking for on-time arrivals
- data-rich reporting.
This announcement comes as Jyrney prepares for formal launch this autumn.
Daniel Price, co-founder and CEO at Jyrney said “At Jyrney we believe in making ground transport more accessible and connected for travellers. In partnering with Magenta Technology, we are adding high-quality fleet operators in crucial locations as we build our leading mobility services network.”
Nadia Temple, Head of Product and Customer Experience at Magenta Technology “Magenta Technology is excited to be integrated with the Jyrney platform. Our Dynamic Fleet Optimisation and Shared Ride technologies combined with Jyrney’s innovative approach to managing business travel opens new doors to mobility markets for Magenta users and truly makes them a part of a wider MaaS eco-system.”
Jyrney is a Manchester based start up with a founding team highly experienced in mobility. Working with established travel businesses, Jyrney helps extend their mobility offering for their customers through a simple integration with their industry leading API.
