The rise of the mobility integrators / SMART MOBILITY MANAGEMENT / News / Mobility industry

The rise of the mobility integrators /  SMART MOBILITY MANAGEMENT  / News / Mobility industry | Mobility | Scoop.it
Although many of the pioneering mobility projects being implemented today by suppliers and corporations are at the micro-level, the market and social conditions which have led to their creation originate at the macro level.
 
At the second annual Smart Mobility Forum in Brussels last week delegates heard from Martyn Briggs, Mobility – Automotive &Transportation Programme Manager at Frost & Sullivan, about the macro level factors that are driving mobility changes at the micro level, and why corporations should be exploring this space in the search for better business behaviours.
 
Mega trends driving mobility
 
Martyn identified the three key mega trends which are impacting countries, cities and corporations, and driving change in the mobility marketplace.
 
Firstly, rapid urbanisation, the growth of cities and increasing numbers of people living in them is placing strain on existing infrastructure.  This is leading to a tipping point for congestion, and theassociated problems with localised environmental pollution.  These factors, impacting the economic ability of the city, are creating a tipping point from cities and citizens where relationship with the car is under intense discussion.
 
With public transport under strain too, how cities design transportation systems and how citizens can effectively use these has become a headline agenda item for city planners.  This is where big data and technology enter the equation, with the integration of different transport modes being enabled through mobile and on the go booking – all possible in real time.  By joining the dots between different transport modes suppliers are presenting smarter solutions for corporations and their travellers.
 
Considered against the wider economic backdrop of scarce financial resources at a national and citizen level, new models of ownership and usage are starting to emerge based on collaborative consumption.  This change in social attitudes towards pay as you go rather than ownership is creating a fertile ground for new business solutions in the mobility sphere.  Mobility is transitioning from a product to a service.
 
It is these conditions that have combined to create a marketplace for a new type of player – the mobility integrator.  A mobility integrator is, according to Frsot and Sullivan research, “an entity or a combination of entities in the value chain which provides the right combination of various modes of transportation to offer an integrated, multi-modal door to door solution using a mobility platform by leaveraging technological expertise, operational excellence, infrastructural advancements and innovative business propositions.”
 
Mobility integrators make better use of existing infrastructure through, as the name suggest, its integration.  By doing so travellers are enabled to access all types of vehicles (motorised and non motorised) as well as the services offered by public transport operators, though mobile devices in real time. 
 
Briggs added that into this mix are suppliers offering workspace solutions too, with the NS Business card in the Netherlands cited as a prime example of a holistic service offering incorporating both mobility and workspace. As the nature of workspace changes suppliers in the travel, fleet and workspace sector are recognising the value creation opportunity that is possible by offering a one stop shop solution. 
 
This holistic thinking and the potential it presents for new revenue streams and differentiation in the marketplace is driving investment in new business models that have mobility as the cornerstone.
 
Emergence of mobility budgets
 
With new offers in the market corporations are beginning to explore what this means for their fleet and travel policies, and how through the adoption of new solutions efficiencies can be realised and productivity improved. 
 
One area of development according to Briggs is in the area of mobility budgets. Corporations are beginning to empower their employees through the adoption of a personalised mobility budget that enables employees to select the best available mode of transport at any given time.  This dynamic solution requires mobility providers to broaden their offers, and as they do so, the visibility and benefits of new approaches will continue to broaden. 
 
The pace of change is unprecedented.  With the area of mobility and the players in it constantly evolving, there will be new opportunities and new start-up companies presenting solutions that will revolutionise how corporate buyers procure, manage and use mobility solutions in the near future.  It is a space to keep a very close eye on.  /
