Working with the previously silo'd legacy dispatch system/software providers (Fasttrak, Livery Coach and Limo Anywhere to date), GRiDD has developed a 21st century integration solution to bridge the technology gap that has, until now, prohibited the development of seamless communication between operators and their partners.
This first step in creating a transparent ecosystem of operators and fleets will power many new solutions to meet changing buyer preferences, open up new sources of revenue, and new distribution channels to deliver your services.
GRiDD’s GNet platform is in the final stages of building-out partner systems and testing. Production releases are in place and others are being rolled out.
We anticipate that our system integrations will continue as more operators and systems around the world realize the potential of the platform and the advantages we deliver:
GNet is a B2B open and neutral market platform designed by GRiDD to enable operator to operator reservations, to provide transparency and greater functionality to existing apps and to facilitate new market channels and new business opportunities for operators from outside and within the industry.
GRiDD’s GNet platform is a communications/translation platform. GNet is not a booking or dispatch system nor does it sell transportation services of any kind. The GNet Platform is a bi-directional switch; an operator may send or receive reservations and other information/services with other operators as well as other travel and transportation distributors, including online travel portals, Travel Management companies, online travel agencies (Expedia.com, etc.), mobile booking applications and other aggregators and sources of business.
These connections are designed to expand the visibility of the network participants (operators), drive participation in new market segments and help create business opportunities for all participants.
GNet members have complete control of their level of visibility in the marketplace (both to other operators and/or other sources of new business) and may establish relationships with any other company on the platform that they wish to do business with. By facilitating operator visibility and providing access to global Travel Portals, mobile applications and other verticals and/or technologies, GNet arms operators with the tools necessary to exchange information via their existing dispatch systems.
Global visibility to Travel Portals,Travel Management Companies and aggregators.
Connecting to GNet is facilitated by your software providers.
Real-Time Status updates:
Information automatically synced on both sides of the transaction as changes occur.
Real-Time Vehicle location:
GNet provides the latest location of a vehicle and trip status back to both sides of the transaction.
An Open Market Platform:
Send or Receive electronic reservations and other information via your back-office system from any other GNet network participant.
Foundation for the Future:
The GNet platform integration with each dispatch system will serve as the foundation for on-demand service fulfilment by operators.
Cross-Mobile app capability:
Your passenger mobile apps can show you, and your passenger, the location of the passenger’s vehicle, whether the vehicle is yours or your affiliate’s regardless of difference in technologies. Your passenger app becomes a “Universal App”.
GNet is a transaction based system requiring no upfront payments, and there is no investment in additional hardware or software required or necessary. Registration on the GNet platform is free of charge.
Once an operator begins sending and/or receiving transactions via the platform, you will be charged a flat transaction fee for each completed reservation you send or receive. There are no additional charges for updates, cancels or querying the location of vehicles. You will be billed monthly, there are no commitments or binding contracts.
GNet is a fraction of the cost of all other options in the market.
GNet is connected to multiple dispatch systems. If you are using one of these systems, you are already connected. Make sure you are registered on GNet in order to be seen by other operators, distributors and other sources of new business.
If you are using one of the GNet connected dispatch systems, then your software provider has made all of the necessary changes to your programming to enable the transmission of reservations and information to/from your system. You will not be required to install any additional technology or equipment, you will simply need to reach out to your software provider for the necessary instructions and support documentation to activate the new capabilities.
If you are not using a GNet connected dispatch system, GRiDD will be happy to develop a customized integration process for you and your system.
