What is sharing mobility?

As much as you can love your city, the urban environment presents some problems that we face every day, first of all traffic. If public transport is enjoying fluctuating success due to crowded conditions and delays, today there is an increasing focus on sharing mobility systems , to reduce traffic, individual costs and pollution. But how to manage them effectively?

Sharing mobility, a step towards the future

By sharing mobility we mean theuse of vehicles made available by ‘rental’ services, scattered throughout the urban area or available in strategic hubs of city mobility: on the user side we are witnessing the internalization of a new mentality that favors sharing over possession, while on the business side we see the emergence of new commercial realities, which aim to offer this service by declining it in different forms.

In Italy, albeit with a delay compared to other European countries, sharing mobility for cars has become more and more widespread, in two main forms: the traditional one, in which you book the desired vehicle and collect it in a partner parking, where it must also be returned at the end of the period of use, on the basis of which the amount due will be calculated (based on the type of vehicle, time and kilometers); the so-called ‘free-floating’ one, on the other hand, is not bound by predetermined collection and redelivery points, preferring a decentralized approach in which the user is provided with a map of the cars (specially set up) closest to his position and an app on the smartphone to unlock and guide them, with payments directly deducted from the credit loaded in your account

The red thread that binds these examples is the need for digital platforms capable of monitoring the position of the vehicles and who is using them, offering prompt assistance in case of need. In addition, the control of processes, a factor not considered, but essential to make the service scalable and efficient.

Control Room is the IT service provided in outsourcing by Intoowit , which allows 24/7 monitoring of all connected devices: this service allows you to have everything under control in real time, providing useful information to both the user and the manager, preventing problems and providing better assistance.

Discover Control Room

Control Room is declined on three approaches, depending on the specific needs of the customer and the sector:

  • TOC (Technology Operation Center), which monitors system infrastructures, application layers and geographically distributed peripherals
  • NOC (Network Operation Center), for 24/7 control of network structures, company equipment and geographic connectivity
  • SPOC (Single Point of Contact), which centralizes the technical Help Desk service and defines ticket management

As stated, sharing mobility is increasingly widespread in Italy: over 5,000 shared vehicles on which 1,800,000 hours of rental and approximately 30,000,000 kilometers were made, divided into over 4 million bookings with a growth of 35% in first half of 2018.
