Adapt to the future of shared mobility with rich data to improve operations and customer experiences.

As consumers around the world become more conscious of the environment, private vehicle ownership is declining, in favor of car clubs peer-to-peer car sharing and other carsharing companies. However, to deliver user experiences that will help them compete, these organizations must make optimal use of the connected car data that is available to them.


Current challenges Car Clubs are facing include:

Vehicle Security

Unreported Accidents

Car Service

Driver Safety

Vehicle Security & Theft

Unreported Accidents & Accident Detection

Long-standing problems exist around unreported accidents taking place during vehicle use and vehicles are frequently dropped off without the owners or operators being able to inspect them upon return. Insurance claims, including issues of fault, can create complexities for car clubs trying to accurately re-create any incidents or accidents that take place while the vehicle was being driven or if it was damaged or stolen in a parking area.

Vehicle Usage & Maintaining Customer Experience

Because of the rapid turnover of drivers, daily or hourly use of vehicles in car clubs or car sharing services pose a difficult challenge: keeping vehicles in service as much as possible. Ensuring the car’s availability is key as drivers seeking to make money by including their vehicle in a shared mobility program need assurance that the car will be there when they need it. Delayed drop-offs can impact customer experience if no car is available and can cause car clubs additional costs.

Driving Behavior

Driver behavior is a growing concern for car clubs. All too often, people rent cars and drive them irresponsibly, lend them to non-members or damage them in ways that they do not report. Reckless driving behavior can lead to increased maintenance and service costs and bad publicity for the brand and might mean cars are out of service, ultimately delaying hires and affecting customer experience.
