Finding your place in future mobility ecosystems

The transportation of goods and people is undergoing rapid disruption. New technologies and services, socio-economic trends, and differing demographic needs are transforming mobility. New technology promises faster, safer, cheaper and personalised mobility. Yet effective implementation requires the seamless integration of mobility chains, which presents a challenge to your old infrastructure. 

As a provider in today’s climate, you face many demands, from secure and sustainable mobility to greater travel convenience. If you’re unsure about how to leverage technology to optimise operations and improve the customer journey, then we can help you. 

At Zühlke, we put your needs first, embracing the new passenger-centered mobility paradigm. We’ll help you build a sustainable market position by navigating technology trends such as 5G networks, extended reality, IoT and sensor technology, advanced analytics and artificial intelligence.

End-to-end travel experiences with Mobility-as-a-Service Offerings

To meet new customer demands, you need to deliver new experiences across the whole value chain - everything from seamless multimodal travel, to pay-as-you-go payment to integrated insurance. Meanwhile time, convenience and cost remain key factors to differentiate your business. However, these new services all require the safe collection, management and sharing of data.

To keep pace, you may need to change your business model to find a place in a complex new ecosystem. Mobile-ticketing platforms and automated fare collection systems are no longer just ‘nice to have,’ but a requirement for many travelers. 

Zühlke can help you develop business opportunities based on mobility-as-a-service (MAAS) solutions. We provide expertise in areas such as data science, data security, cloud computing and platform development. And crucially, we’ll assist you in navigating and managing the complexity surrounding data and multiple partners.

From a Vehicle-Centric to Data-driven Business Models

The world of operations is challenging, from your short-term cost reduction measures and long-term strategic initiatives to the digital transformation of your operation. And sometimes, you’re left with no choice but to reinvent your entire business. So, you can find a place in the travel ecosystems of the future

Data helps you make better decisions, while AI and machine learning makes your processes faster and more customer focused. But the technology’s greatest promise is its potential to develop radically new products and services. 

Zühlke can help you learn how to leverage the right technologies and seamlessly transition between on-demand, private and public transport services.
