Fleetonomy provides cloud-based, end-to-end fleet management platforms for automakers and smart mobility operators, designed to maximize fleet efficiency, reduce operational costs, and create new revenue streams based on smart mobility services.
Fleetonomy’s platform contains everything needed to operate efficient and profitable smart mobility services such as ridesharing, dynamic shuttles, car subscription, and on-demand car rental services using the same fleet of vehicles. Fleetonomy’s technology is powered by dynamic routing, task allocation, and AI-based demand prediction engines that maximize efficiency and ensure the highest vehicle utilization.
The Tel-Aviv based startup company is currently deployed globally with top tier automotive OEM’s, transit agencies, and smart mobility service providers helping them predict demand, increase fleet utilization, and create new revenue streams.
Fleetonomy’s Full Stack EV Smart Mobility Platform
In 2019, Fleetonomy unveiled the first end-to-end AI-based fleet management platform in the world that enables planning, launching, and operating multiple smart mobility services such as ridesharing, dynamic shuttles, on-demand rent, and car subscription services using a single fleet of ICE and/or electric vehicles.
According to Nico Gropper, Audi Business Innovation GmbH, in a statement provided to TechCrunch, “services that include both electric and ICE vehicles have to deal with additional levels of complexity in order to run smoothly. Solving these complexities with the right technology partner is crucial to the operational and financial success of the entire mobility service”.
The company’s technology ensures that smart mobility operators are putting their fleet to best use by minimizing idle time and maximizing vehicle usage. Fleetonomy’s full-stack Electric Vehicle Smart Mobility Platform includes advanced prediction engines that allow accurate real-time predictions for parameters such as the battery status of each vehicle in the fleet, charging recommendations, the time it will take for each vehicle to be delivered to end-users, matching each vehicle to customer needs, easily managing flip requests, and more, with the goal of allowing operators to constantly operate efficiently according to data-driven insights.
Whether it’s an EV-based or mixed-fleet mobility service, Fleetonomy’s platform allows full control over every aspect of a fleet’s operational costs and helps to reduce them while constantly overseeing battery levels across the entire fleet, and helping operators making accurate choices at any given time regarding which vehicles need to be charged, when and for how long.
