From smartphones and cloud computing to ride-sharing services and electric cars, disruptive technology is changing the way we live – and nobody understands disruption better than startups. Whether they’re independent entities funded by VCs or emerging companies within the walls of a large corporation, startups recognize the power of technology to solve problems and improve lives, and they have been instrumental in challenging the status quo and shaping our society.
But startups can’t be expected to do it all alone. Lean operating budgets and a need to move quickly demand that these organizations make efficient use of their limited resources – and that means not “reinventing the wheel” when it comes to their underlying tech. By working with the right partner who can provide the right resources and expertise at the right time, startups are free to focus on what matters most: bringing their innovation to market.

This ebook looks at the critical role location intelligence can play in helping on-demand organizations make that extra drop-off each hour.
By reading this ebook, you will discover:
- How accurate location, asset and routing data can aid fleet optimization and improve service response times
- How accurate pick-up and trip destination ETAs ensure time isn’t wasted connecting users with drivers

Car-sharing, ride-sharing and ride-hailing aren’t
new. Uber and other personal mobility services
have redefined how people move from place to
place. And now these services are beginning to
redefine traditional car ownership itself. As people
move from one vehicle to another, their personal
information and preferences need to follow them,
so the car they use feels like their own. Blockchain is
defined as a shared, immutable ledger, and it can
address many of the challenges that new types of
personal mobility present.
Today, in the age of information, people are paid for their ideas: to create original knowledge products or add value to existing products. Given their self-reliance, it is not surprising that workers take pride in their outputs—up to half of employees take a portfolio of files with them when they leave.
When employees move on, many feel entitled to the work they’ve created.They presume it is acceptable to transfer work documents to personal computers, removable media, tablets, smartphones or online file sharing apps. Some pilfered data is innocuous and already in the public realm. But some of it is classified. Read this paper to find out how to collect and secure data to protect operations, reputation and continuity when employees leave.
Business travelers in the U.S. will take close to 500 million trips in 2016. That means, every day, nearly 40,000 people are booking ground transportation¹. Meanwhile, a stream of devices and applications are emerging to help travelers get to their destinations in more efficient, safe, and affordable ways. This constantly-changing landscape can leave your team lost, fighting other business travelers for space and trying to keep up with the best apps. And lost is the last place your team should be, especially when they’re traveling for work.
