Media release

  • Two cutting-edge MaaS technologies fostering MaaS in cities and regions
  • Presentation of joint portfolio: Fluidtime’s platform technology coupled with front-end solutions and meta routing from SkedGo

Vienna/Sydney, May 29, 2019 – At the ITS European Congress in Eindhoven from June 4-6, Fluidtime and SkedGo are presenting a joint portfolio for the next digital level in enabling MaaS at Marquee 1, Stand 0.10.

With the goal of better servicing more complex MaaS ecosystems, Fluidtime has integrated SkedGo’s award-winning multi and mixed modal routing platform into its own mobility technology. Combined with SkedGo’s various front-end solutions and Fluidtime’s business management tool for account, user and tariff management of the apps, this results in the largest MaaS product range of this kind: “MaaS thrives on integration. We need a strong network in the MaaS ecosystem and partnerships at eye level,” said Michael Kieslinger, CEO and founder of Fluidtime. “With our unique offering of MaaS solutions, we bring you future mobility today. We help our customers and partners integrate, standardize and combine transport data into new and comprehensive offerings, increasing quality and spurring competition within the market. Together with SkedGo, we connect cities and regions to make MaaS a reality.”

“MaaS offerings must seamlessly combine multiple capabilities to deliver superior user experiences and operational efficiencies. SkedGo and Fluidtime have complimentary platforms, which can deliver a much wider and more comprehensive product range to customers. It accelerates our clients’ MaaS agenda, to deliver complete solutions and excellent UX sooner. SkedGo’s routing algorithm is currently best-in-class and together with Fluidtime’s expertise in business management tools, it’s quite the game changer.”

Smart platform technology with two extension modules

Austrian software company Fluidtime has developed the platform technology FluidHub for the expansion of MaaS in cities and regions. With FluidHub, cities, public transport companies and commercial MaaS operators receive a comprehensive tool set for highly scalable implementation and operation of their integrated mobility services. Urban and regional authorities can use FluidHub to orchestrate their B2B MaaS ecosystem to meet today’s traffic needs in both urban and rural areas. The Fluidtime MaaS platform is the link between the mobility needs of customers and the transport services available, providing multiple added value:

  • Integration and standardization layer for transport services, booking and payment services
  • Support of a multitude of interfaces and standards for the integration of transport offers
  • Tailor-made configuration options, e.g. for the introduction of on-demand traffic services, including first/last mile solutions, or for apps in the area of corporate mobility
  • Configurable mobility packages for subscription models
  • Monitoring of KPIs and detailed reporting on the demand for mobility services (modal split, time, location, duration, etc.) for data-based regulation and influencing of transport networks

In addition, the FluidHub platform technology can be supplemented with a comprehensive commercial back office for clearing, invoicing and CRM as well as a white label app (information, intermodal routing, booking, account, different payment modes, reports, etc.).
