Munich, 25 September 2018. Alphabet, the corporate mobility provider for Europe, Australia and China, introduces the Mobility Consulting Tool – the world’s first bespoke consultation tool designed to offer customised fleet solutions. With this innovative tool, customers worldwide can now benefit from holistic consulting on CarSharing, rental packages, saving costs and integrating electric and hybrid vehicles based on their own fleet data.
Companies that rely on Alphabet’s innovative mobility services and solutions across Europe and beyond can now take advantage of the Mobility Consulting Tool. Available since 2016, Alphabet’s Mobility Consulting Tool (MCT) is highly flexible and continues to be updated to reflect changes in the market and customer requirements. With this tool, each client receives a holistic analysis of their fleet’s current usage and subsequent recommendations on how to build a more efficient and cost-effective mobility concept to meet their needs.
Every fleet is unique, so the first step with the Mobility Consulting Tool is to conduct an in-depth analysis of the client’s current fleet. This is easily achieved by installing GPS trackers into the vehicles selected by the client, to collect vehicle data over the course of a month. This data includes: the common destinations for each car, the distance travelled per day and per trip, how often the car was used and where and how long it was parked for. This data is anonymised and analysed to calculate the overall fuel consumption, Total Cost of Mobility, CO2 emissions and to generate a number of usage patterns. With these usage patterns Alphabet can offer recommendations about where to consider building or making the most of facilities to charge electric vehicles, implement AlphaCity CarSharing or save money on parking.
Using the Mobility Consulting Tool (MCT), Alphabet can carry out a full Electrification Potential Analysis (EPA). This means that Alphabet can point out exactly where a client can introduce EVs or plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) alongside the more traditional combustion engines. With this data, Alphabet can identify specific ‘mobility spots’ and pinpoint the number, location and types of charge points a client’s fleet needs so nobody will run out of power. Alphabet also takes care of setting up these facilities – providing all of the charging infrastructure needed both at employees’ homes and at the office with AlphaElectric.
Thanks to the Mobility Consulting Tool, Alphabet can offer end-to-end consulting which consists of recommendations of where and how to introduce EVs and PHEVs as well as the relevant charging infrastructure required to run these cars and numerous additional services to keep each fleet running smoothly. This includes rental options and driver support, to ensure that drivers are covered in all situations and all can benefit from uninterrupted mobility.
Giuseppe Sacchi, Product Manager for eMobility at Alphabet says “more and more customers are approaching the fleet business, travel management and sustainability together. Alphabet’s plan with the Mobility Consulting Tool is to bring all of these things together as we collect data on fleet usage, provide analysis of the amount of CO2 being produced and identify points of interest or potential mobility hubs for our clients.”
Sacchi continues, “in the future, we expect our Mobility Consulting Tool to give us even more opportunities by collecting data from connected vehicles and to help us to be one step ahead. This data would then be used to help our customers in making smarter decisions.”
By introducing the Mobility Consulting Tool to its range of innovative products and services, Alphabet is strengthening its unique, tailor-made approach to Business Mobility. This approach means that Alphabet can continue to meet client needs and build on its unparalleled knowledge and expertise within the fleet management and mobility industries.
