MAKING CLIENT TRAVEL MORE SIMPLIFIED & CONVENIENT WITH
CONFIRMATIONS AND ALERTS

 

January 2014

 

By investing in leading innovative technology, Concorde Worldwide takes the customers experience to the next level. We continually discover ways to make traveling with us easier and memorable from the beginning of the reservation to the very end of the trip.

 

Reservation Confirmation

Concorde Worldwide’s automated Reservation Confirmation is emailed to the client once the trip is placed and confirmed in our advanced reservation system. A second confirmation, a helpful reminder, is sent to the client 24 hours prior to the scheduled pick-up time. This includes detailed information with the reservation #, account / passenger name, pickup date / time, pickup and drop off location, etc. We ask that our clients review all the information for the utmost accuracy.

 

Care Alerts
Concorde Worldwide Care Alerts are a highly sophisticated program that allows you to receive alerts in real time. These alerts give detailed notifications of your chauffeur’s status. Alerts can also be sent to a different individual (other than the passenger) to reassure them that the vehicle is on location, the passenger is in the vehicle, the passenger has been dropped off, etc. The Care Alerts provide you with the ultimate in security and peace of mind 24 / 7 / 365.

 

These Care Alert options can be easily activated by calling or sending an email to our reservation agents requesting to “opt-in” to the program. Our clients can request the method of communication in which they want to receive the alerts: email, text message or both and we incorporate that information into the passenger profile.  If requesting alerts to your cell phone, you must provide your carrier name as well.

 

Care Alert Options
Once you determine if you want your care alerts sent via email and/or text messaging, you can select from the alert options below. At Concorde Worldwide we always give you the information you want, the way you want it and best of all, you can mix and match the Care Alerts so you only get the ones you want!

Concorde Worldwide recently added a 2013 Mercedes-Benz Executive Sprinter Limousine; which makes an excellent addition to our fleet of sprinter van-class vehicles. The choice was easy when it came to deciding on adding another executive sprinter vehicle by Mercedes-Benz, whose name is synonymous with safety, quality and comfort. This executive sprinter limousine is earning its popularity with clients due to its multi-purpose use.  

 

Choosing to customize the executive sprinter limousine accommodates two major segments of our business: Corporate Executives & Special Occasions.

The New Role of Customer Service at Concorde Worldwide

September 2012

 

 

(Freehold, N.J.) - Concorde Worldwide has taken a look at how the exploding growth of the transportation industry and technology has supported the changing role of customer service and reservation agents. These are the people who represent the voice of the transportation industry and whose true value may sometimes be overlooked at times. In the past, their title portrayed a job description of primarily answering incoming calls and placing reservations into the computer.  With the transportation industry on the rise and advancement in technology growing, responsibilities have grown and changed.
 
Concorde Worldwide started in 1984 and the staff was placing reservations for clients who lived and worked no further than a 60 mile radius from our headquarters. Reservations were mostly booked in sedans; transporting clients to and from area airports or a night out on the town.

 

In 1996 due to the explosive growth of the ground transportation industry, the company expanded the operation to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; increasing the need for more reservationists.  In 2003, Concorde began accepting real-time online Internet reservations and clients were able to get access and manage individual profiles, view upcoming reservations or travel histories, print travel itineraries and get receipts through our website. Reservations were taken by phone, company website and travel agent booking tools. All reservations had to be reviewed electronically for accuracy and emails had to be accepted and responded to in a timely manner.  This new form of technology allowed the process of booking to become more efficient.

 

With the company’s NGT (Network Ground Transportation) program, Concorde built strong relationships with ground transportation affiliates to service our client’s around the globe. The process is managed by our staff who works diligently with professional companies who provide the same high-quality, reliable service and continue to exceed the expectations that our clients’ demand and deserve. Our team continually monitors and communicates with our preferred affiliates. Our client base grew to include the continental USA, Canada and stretches around the world to cities such as London, Luxemburg, Ireland, Barcelona, and India. Our reservationists take reservations anywhere in the world! They assist clients with logistical planning of various time zones and matching vehicles according to client’s requests or special needs. Reservationists place clients in vehicles from sedans, limousines, vans, sport utility vehicles, executive vans, luxury minibuses, and motor coaches up to 57 passengers. Concorde Worldwide can also provide handicap equipped vehicles upon request.

 

Concorde has recognized the change in the role of a reservationist and recently changed the titles of Reservationist and Customer Service and replaced them with Transportation Specialist. The title change reflected the position evolving into becoming more of a "strategic partner” to our clients. The position involved more than just giving out rates, placing, changing and cancelling a reservation.  Now the responsibilities range from educating clients to their choices of vehicles, the logistical planning of ground transportation and providing all alternatives and cost effective ways to work within a client’s budget, and arranging car service in the client’s destination city whether it’s domestic or international. The Transportation Specialist also keeps our client’s abreast of Concorde’s new specials, updates and signs them up for our Frequent Rider Rewards program where they can receive free base fares and upgrades each time they travel. 

Due to the innovations in technology, our clients have more choices when interacting with Concorde. We provide online reservations, account management tools, and a Live-Chat line for clients who want to reach us instantly to ask questions. We provide a dedicated company email – reservations@concordeworldwide.com that is checked daily for those customers who choose to receive additional company information, rates or want to join our mailing list.  The advancements in technology have allowed our business to service clients in a more efficient and timely manner.

 

The growth of the transportation industry and technology has given us the opportunity to expand our business. This new role of our Transportation Specialists incorporates many responsibilities and at the end of the day -- all responsibilities always focus on meeting and exceeding the expectations of our clients!

Concorde President Honored to Meet Robert L. Crandall

March 2012


Robert Crandall & Robert BellagambaRobert Bellagamba, President & CEO, of Concorde Worldwide and members of his staff attended the 28th Annual International LCT Show in Las Vegas in February 2012. The LCT Show is the biggest convention for limousine, charter and tour operators in the world. The event is the ultimate destination for operators around the globe seeking education, product showcases and business networking.

The Keynote Presentation: Leading Through Tough Times, was presented by Robert L. Crandall, former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of American Airlines. During Crandall’s 25-year tenure at American Airlines, he was instrumental in introducing several changes, which revolutionized the travel industry. The Wall Street Journal has called Crandall, “the man who changed the way the world flies.”


Crandall sponsored a project to modernize American's SABRE computer reservations system, thus laying the groundwork for what eventually became The SABRE Group, now a leading provider of computing and communications services for airlines throughout the world. Crandall created Super Saver fares, which introduced the concept of deep discounts for advance-purchase tickets. Subsequently, he led the development of the industry's first yield management system, a revenue-maximizing approach now used throughout the airline industry. He created AAdvantage, the industry's first frequent flyer program and launched an expansion program which more than tripled American's size. Mirroring the same type of program, in 1987 Concorde Worldwide created the ground transportation industry’s first Frequent Rider Rewards program. Clients automatically accrue points every time they use our service locally or worldwide. Accumulated points can be redeemed for upgrades and free rides.

 

Crandall retired from American Airlines in May 1998. Among the many national and trade publications that have honored Crandall for his achievements and executive leadership are BusinessWeek, Industry Week, Aviation Week and Space Technology, Financial World and Air Transport World.

NFIB Member: Bob Bellagamba, Concorde WorldwideNational Safety Council CEO’s “Who Get It” – March 2009

Location: Freehold, N.J.
Employees: 80

Issue: May/June 2011 NFIB My Business Magazine

 

When you think about innovation, you might picture Apple or Google or Nike. While those corporations get a lot of attention, the reality is that smaller companies across the country are overcoming huge obstacles and innovating every single day.

 

Wouldn’t it be nice to post a better bottom line than competitors as a result of investing in green technology? Just talk to Bob Bellagamba.  

 

Bellagamba, who owns New Jersey limousine service Concorde Worldwide, bought a solar energy system in 2008 for $625,000. (The 6,000 square feet of solar roof panels cover the company’s garage.) A hefty investment for a small business, no doubt. But Bellagamba decided long ago that green investments were the right innovation for his growing company. 

 

The solar panels allow Concorde to produce 65 percent of its own electricity, and sell additional electricity “units” through a special market. For every 1,000 kWh of electricity the solar panels generate, Concorde earns one solar renewable energy certificate, or SREC. The SRECs are then sold to electricity producers across New Jersey. Last year, Concorde sold $60,000 worth.  

 

That’s not the only green investment Concorde made. In 2002, the company started heating its garage with waste oil and transmission fluid. That saves about $2,000 a year in heating costs. Plus, Bellagamba decided to change the fleet’s oil every 7,500 miles instead of every 5,000, shrinking oil consumption by half. And the old oil filters get crushed into scrap metal to be sold to a yard across town. 

 

While Bellagamba touts his business’ greening efforts on Concorde’s website, the “carbon footprint stuff” has not helped attract customers. “I honestly think they don’t care,” he says. “Price is the No. 1 driver.” 

But the long-term impact on his business is clear. Once revenue from the SRECs offsets his initial investment for the solar panel system—in 2016, Bellagamba estimates—the company will be able to post a much healthier bottom line than competitors. Year after year.

A Letter From the President:

March 2011

 

Hello Concorde Worldwide Client!

 

We are very excited about the delivery of our new Ford Flex sedans. As you may or may not be aware, the production of the largest full size American sedan, the Lincoln Town Car, will come to an end in August 2011. The Mercury Grand Marquis ceased production in July 2010. The extensive search and evaluation process for replacement vehicles among all manufacturers and models led to our selection of the Ford Flex for our basic sedan service.

While we investigated all options presently available, our highest priority was the comfort and safety of our passengers as well as our professional chauffeurs. The Ford Flex has earned the highest safety ratings and includes some of the following safety controls:

 

  • * Six standard airbags including the Safety Canopy System with rollover sensor
    * 3-point safety belts for all passengers
  • * SPACE (Side Protection and Cabin Enhancement) Architecture
  • * Personal Safety System™ for driver and front passenger

The convenience features of the Ford Flex are more impressive than most vehicles we evaluated. These amenities include:

 

  • * More legroom and headroom than the Lincoln Town Car or Sedan / Crossover 
  • * Ten cup/bottle holders, reading lamps, and privacy windows
  • * 110 volt inverter with AC outlet, four 12-volt powerpoints
  • * Independant rear temperature controls
  • * Upgraded Audio System from Sony® with 12 speakers in 10 locations. The stereo
  •    delivers great sound and you can even listen to your IPod/MP3 collection!

The support for parts and service from the manufacturer is very important. This allows us to properly maintain the fleet for reliable and safe operations during the life of the vehicle. Concorde maintains and utilizes Ford’s diagnostic equipment software so our full-time mechanics and detailers can work daily to maintain our vehicles onsite. We also use All Data systems to keep us up-to-date on any service bulletins or item recalls.

 

In addition to this Ford Flex, Concorde will continue to operate the Lincoln Town Car L-Series throughout 2012; the end of the vehicle's lifecycle. Since all automobile manufacturers have greatly reduced the selection of vehicles to choose from, we will continue to monitor vehicle offerings as we move toward new economies in the automobile manufacturing business. We look forward to your comments and suggestions as we strive to incorporate vehicles that best fit your ground transportation needs. This will assist us in providing the service you deserve, all at a fair and reasonable price for the costs associated with operating that automobile.

 

Please let us know your thoughts at Reservations@concordeworldwide.com. Thanks again for choosing Concorde Worldwide, Your Global Transportation Partner.

 

At your service,

 

Robert Bellagamba
President/CEO

 


Concorde Adds Mercedes-Benz Executive Vans to Fleet for 2011

January 2011

 

Executive VanFor over a quarter of a century, Concorde Worldwide has continued to grow their business by offering impressive services and adding luxurious and diversified vehicles to fit the needs of their clients.

 

On December 27th, the Company added 2011 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters. The Sprinters make a superb addition to the Executive Van class of vehicles, manufactured by Ameritrans, Elkhart, IN. The Sprinters were designed and customized specifically for Concorde Worldwide.

Concorde chose to have the company design their executive classic vans to accommodate one major sector of their business: Corporate Executives.

This world-class vehicle seats ten passengers and is equipped with all the amenities necessary to run a business while away from the office. As executives relax in comfort they can conduct business on their laptops with connection to the LCD monitor, access outlets to recharge personal electronics and connect to their Bluetooth.

 

In addition to its design, another selling point was Mercedes-Benz’s BlueTec engine which is one of the cleanest diesel engines in the world; transforming harmful emissions into harmless nitrogen and water — all without sacrificing power, efficient drivetrain, or quiet rides. Concorde anticipates up to a 100% increase in fuel mileage than the vehicles they replace.

 

The Executive Van is also a perfect choice for any special occasion or night out on the town. The interior creates a relaxing atmosphere in which a group of friends can enjoy the state-of-the-art entertainment system that includes a 32” LCD TV with DirecTV, CD/DVD/ MP3 and IPod connection. This vehicle brings a whole new energy while experiencing the surrounding cities of Manhattan, Atlantic City, or Philadelphia.

 

No matter what event you book the Mercedes Benz Executive Van for…
You Will Book an Experience.
