Name, job title
Daniel Price, co-founder and CEO, Jyrney
When were you founded?
Jyrney was founded in 2020, we wrote the first lines of code for the platform about a week before the first lockdown, so Jyrney was completely built over video calls while the team were working from home.
What do you do?
Jyrney is a transformative mobility platform connecting business travel management companies with thousands of ground transport options.
What problem does your innovation solve?
Today less than 3% of business travel bookings through a travel management company have a mobility option attached, which is crazy when you consider every flight, train and hotel booking has at least 2 ground transport trips. Due to a historic lack of technology, these bookings are placed out of policy and leave the traveller exposed to increased costs and safety concerns. Jyrney provides an integrated and audited taxi supply directly into the passengers booking flow, making it easier than ever to booked connected ground transport.
What are the benefits to travellers and organisations with travellers?
When a taxi booking is brought within policy the traveller doesn’t need to worry about the booking, we manage it from start to finish ensuring they is collected by a pre-approved taxi company. They no longer need to process invoices or handle cash, their TMC will send an invoice directly to their company. They can even use their trusted local taxi company or well-known international brands. The company benefits from reduced cost, full Co2 data and an improved ability to meet duty of care responsibilities.
What are your plans for future growth?
We have recently signed contracts with several Travel Management Companies and plan to help them better integrate taxi and mobility solutions for their customers and travellers. We have several partnerships in the pipeline to help us develop new markets so watch this space!
What will it mean to you to win the Innovation Faceoff?
Winning the Innovation Faceoff will help Jyrney on its mission to lift ground transport to its rightful place in business travel next to air, rail and hotel. Ground transport is the most often forgotten part of business travel, it’s the final frontier for Travel Management Companies and we want to use our expertise to help them explore this new territory!
