Brussels, March 26, 2019 – Ptolemus Consulting Group, strategic advisory firm renowned for their expertise in mobility ecosystems, published their ranking of two categories of ‘mobtechs’ or mobility platform providers. In the category of Mobility Platform Providers (MPPs), which aggregate multiple operators and modes on their platform, SkedGo was ranked best provider.
“SkedGo stood out in our Mobility Platform Provider research, not only for its long market experience, but also its ability to scale its partnership strategy. It has successfully integrated a very large number of transport operators in cities all over the world”.Frederic Bruneteau, Managing Director, PTOLEMUS Consulting Group
The international software developer with HQ in Australia came ahead of Fluidtime, Moovit, Siemens, Cubic, A-to-Be, Moovel/Reach Now and Optimile.
“This is excellent recognition for all the hard and smart work our team has put in over the years. A lot of companies now say they offer multi and mixed modal routing, but we are still the only business in the market allowing for the combination of ALL transport modes – private, public and commercial – into sensible, personalised trip chains.
It’s great to see this has been validated externally and the smart people at Ptolemus have picked up on it.”Claus von Hessberg, Founder and CEO of SkedGo

- The company’s experience and length of time in the market,
- The scalability and geographical reach of their solution,
