“You’ve just landed in yet another city, you’re exhausted…. you don’t even remember the name of the hotel you’re staying at. Yet…total peace of mind. As the plane pulls into the gate you hear two calming sounds. The first one is coming from the cockpit. The second is a text message from GroundLink notifying you that your driver is now waiting for you at baggage claim. And that’s the beauty of GroundLink.”
Daniel Leon, our GM, Mobile spoke the previous words this Tuesday, as he presented the GroundLink mobile app at the PhocusWright Travel Innovation Summit this week. He spoke before a tough panel of judges, experts in the travel industry. PhocusWright is the top travel research company and the annual conference features important innovations from all over the industry.

30 companies presented at the conference, and we were so honored to win in 2 categories!:
The ODIGEO Award for Travel Innovation: Mobile Technology Category
The Creative Alliance Award for Travel Innovation: Established Category
Our surprised GroundLink CEO, Charlie Fraas, headed up to the stage to the ubiquitous “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey and thanked everyone for the support. “It’s a great honor to have the esteemed judges recognize the truly innovative nature of GroundLink, and what were doing for ground transportation,” said Charlie. “This is stunning. We’ve been so excited about this industry segment. It has been an industry segment that has really not gotten the attention of all of the other core industry segments of travel, and it’s finally getting the attention that it deserves. This category is gonna go through amazing changes and thank you for all the support.”
The entire GroundLink team is thrilled, and we congratulate all of our fellow winners at this year’s PhoCusWright Conference!
