Bike.Rent set to become the booking.com of the bike industry

Industry-leading Bike.Rent Manager has launched a new platform to connect consumers with rental shops worldwide, Bike.Rent.

Working with over 650 bike stores worldwide, Bike.Rent has combined its trusted rental management software with the new platform. Cyclists will have visibility on how many bikes a shop has got and when they are available.

The unique expansion to Bike.Rent Manager means cyclists can browse and book third-party rental providers, in real-time.

After raising over £750,000 in capital for the venture, the founders of Bike.Rent will use their 10 years of experience in the SaaS world to launch the booking.com of the bike industry.

Before Bike.Rent, cyclists would search and contact multiple websites to book their bikes. The new platform avoids the issue of users navigating multiple websites, accessing the real-time availability of over 650 bike shops in one place. The stores on Bike.Rent operate the powerful BRM (bike.rent propriety software) to manage all their bookings. In this way, fulfilment is guaranteed.

With powerful search ability, users can narrow their search by location, date, bike type, bike shop, and specific bike availability. This multilayered search approach, combined with the live data stream to the back office of bike shops means customers can have confidence in exactly which bike they are picking, and that it will be prepared and ready, as requested

Commenting on the launch, Doug Stoddart, CEO of Bike.Rent Manager said: “We are thrilled with the launch of the platform which allows us to directly serve the needs of cyclists. Bike.Rent aims to increase the choice and confidence of users in what they book when they rent a bike. Through our industry-leading Bike.Rent Manager platform, we work with hundreds of bike shops where we run their bike rental fleet management software. This gives us access to exactly how many bikes each shop has, the type of bike and when they are available.

“Our platform, for the first time, combines this technology to provide a searchable and bookable system for cyclists. With over 40,000 bikes across 27 countries, cyclists can search the database to find the perfect bike for them. No longer do they have to find a store online before making a booking by phone, email or online, instead, they can simply use our site.

“But this is really just the beginning – we plan to add thousands of stores over the coming months and years. In fact, we are calling on our growing community of cyclists and store owners to help us grow this community. As we build out the population of stores we will be adding powerful new functionality to benefit both the cyclist and bike store.”

Using the combined rental fleets of all 650 bike stores across the network, Bike.Rent is making the bike rental experience seamless and fully integrated from a single application.
