Fleetondemand has launched Mobilleo, which it calls the world’s first Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform, following three years of research and testing.
The platform, which is available for businesses via desktop, IOS and Android, follows a multi-million pound investment from Business Growth Fund (BGF) in Fleetondemand. It was built to help organisations from SMEs to global companies with their corporate mobility objectives.
The app integrates thousands of public and private transportation providers into a single, configurable platform. It allows TMCs to find, book and pay for a client’s business journey – including parking, car hire, flights, trains, accommodation, restaurants, airport lounges, car clubs, buses, taxis and more – in one transaction and on one device.
Mobilleo assesses the journey and presents all available modes of travel, including comparative costs of driving personal and company vehicles on business. It accesses hundreds of data sources to accurately provide a total cost of journey breakdown in a door-to-door itinerary.
Using the desktop application, travel managers can adopt mobility policies and explore data on an employee level to identify total cost, behaviour and whether there has been a breach of policy. Users can also track and analyse their employees’ travel data to inform their company’s mobility strategy, which Mobilleo says can help reduce congestion, CO2 emissions, employee satisfaction and business operating costs.
Travel managers can also set regulations for employees, such as a maximum spend limit and restrictions on routes, providers and ticket class.
Justin Whitston, CEO of Fleetondemand, commented: “When we started planning and scoping Mobilleo back in April 2015, we had a firm vision to build a platform that could change the face of mobility, giving employees and businesses globally the opportunity to optimise their transport policies, reduce emissions and make significant cost savings.
“The technology can be configured for different mobility use cases from SMEs wishing to save costs by consolidating travel booking and spend, to a large corporate whose mobility objectives include alternatives to company cars, or to drive total cost of mobility intelligence.
“The launch of Mobilleo is a proud moment following thousands of development hours and an incredibly difficult solution to build from the ground up. As a business, we placed a stake in the ground around mobility early and have invested heavily to build this first-of-a-kind platform. We are incredibly excited about the future development roadmap and look forward to expanding into Europe and beyond.”
Mobilleo featured on the 2018 BBT Hotlist as ‘one to watch’ for its potential to change the way businesses book travel. If you’d like to nominate a person, product or service for the 2019 list, click here.
