NYC Tech Quote of the Week

“Traditional B2B providers in the U.S. and abroad have long underserved small- and medium-sized businesses. We recognize that businesses require a mobility solution that has quick access to inventory, high-touch customer care and is both easy to use and convenient. The introduction of B2B services to the U.S. will help us scale quickly and complement our existing consumer approach.” — Jan Hansen, SVP of B2B at FINN

FINN launched its B2B offering in the U.S. FINN, a car subscription service based in Germany, allows users to order a new vehicle every six to 12 months with an all-inclusive rate that covers the cost of insurance, maintenance and roadside assistance. The company also offers a business-to-business service for companies with vehicle fleets. This B2B service, which has already been rolled out in Germany, was introduced to the U.S. market last week.  The first vehicles will be delivered by February 15. [Built In NYC]
