Rearden Commerce’s goal is to save their customers time and money by connecting to third-party web services and automating common tasks. Their main service now is designed to make executive travel planning more efficient, and easier to track in the corporate HQ. The service interfaces with hundreds of travel providers, from car companies to hotels, and allows the user to access each of them from the same unified interface. It also learns a traveler’s preferences, and streamlines the booking process by automatically selecting preferred options. In the future, Rearden Commerce will expand into similar spaces, especially in automated booking of small businesses, such as dentists’ and doctors’ offices.
