July 1, 2022
Better collaboration with cities such as Milan
While Helbiz is expanding its operations in the largest Italian cities, the company signed a partnership with Vianova to be able to centralise information on their fleets management. This decision is aligned with Helbiz's desire to deepen its collaboration with Italian cities through better mobility data intelligence.
This partnership will enable Helbiz to strengthen its position in a key market such as Milan. The city is among the most dynamic European cities in terms of micro-mobility offering, with the highest number in Europe of shared vehicles compared to the population. Since 2020, Vianova had been partnering with Milan’s Mobility and Environment Agency to support them in enhancing their shared-mobility system.
Monitor micro-mobility usages to improve road users' experience
Vianova platform will be used by analysts and area managers from Helbiz in order to get insights from their devices' usage. This includes data from their e-scooters, e-bikes and e-mopeds. Among the insights provided by Vianova are:
- fleets' distribution and usage throughout the city
- aggregated Origin/Destination analysis
- infringing vehicles in no-parking zones
Helbiz will use the platform power to apply regulations set by the city in order to ensure safer mobility and more liveable streets.
More specifically, this partnership will enable Helbiz to better relocate their devices thanks to Vianova's AI feature for fleet rebalancing. This tool will make it easier for every road user to find a device wherever needed to complete their journey or go to a place that is more difficult to reach with public transport.
Through this collaboration, Helbiz and Vianova aim at building more efficient and sustainable transport systems for people.
