Focus Travel Partnership announces agreement with Jyrney

Jyrney

The agreement sees Jyrney become a Focus preferred technology supplier meaning the consortium’s TMC Partners can now opt to integrate Jyrney’s platform easily and quickly via API within their own technology stacks.

Focus Travel Partnership, UK’s consortium of independent SME travel management companies, has added a significant ground mobility element to its ecosystem of technology solutions after signing an agreement with transformative ground transport tech provider Jyrney, creating a strategic partnership for the benefit of Focus TMC Partners.

The move is the first initiative from Focus Travel’s Innovation Group, which was recently established (in September 2023) to drive delivery of business solutions that support the future needs of the consortium’s TMC Partners. This strategy includes working with relevant cutting-edge providers to fill the gaps in TMC Partners’ existing tech stacks and operational processes.

Jyrney is an innovative solution for TMCs, businesses and travellers seeking seamless ground transport options. The proprietary platform consolidates the traditionally fragmented booking and management of multi-modal ground transport options, including taxi, ride-hail and chauffeur within a single solution.  Jyrney works with travel management companies, online booking tools and GDSs through white label solutions and APIs, as well as connecting suppliers with corporate customers.

In addition to providing access to a range of transportation choices, Jyrney’s platform also manages the ground element of the trip. If there are any unexpected taxi delays, Jyrney’s AI software immediately steps in to ensure the passenger arrives at their destination on time by reallocating the booking to the closest available taxi or ride-hail company.

Tony Edge, Business Solutions Manager, Focus Travel Partnership commented: “The initial objective of the Focus Innovation Group has been to identify our TMC Partners’ pain-points and map options to solve those challenges by plugging gaps in their technology offering with cutting edge solutions to help them future-proof their businesses. One area of importance that emerged was the ground transport component. We are therefore delighted to be working with Jyrney to give our TMC Partners the ability to incorporate this innovative end-to-end ground mobility platform seamlessly into their own technology suite.”

Daniel Price, CEO and Co-Founder of Jyrney said: “We are excited to be working with Focus and their TMC Partners, giving them access to the world’s leading ride-hail companies alongside local taxi and chauffeur companies.  We will be working closely with Focus’ technical partners to integrate ground transport into the TMC tech stack.  Bringing ground content directly into online booking tools, GDS and mid/back office systems reduces the administration for TMCs and enables them to lead the convergence of mobility into business travel.”
