E-scooters rentals are gaining ground in large cities because they offer much more flexibility and time savings than cars and public transportation. The success or failure of business models in the so-called share economy ultimately depends on the interaction of product and software. It is in this field that GOVECS has made a name for itself worldwide.
The company is a pioneer in the industry and has an outstanding market position: The GOVECS customer portfolio includes major players in the eScooter Sharing industry such as Cityscoot in France, eCooltra in Spain, Portugal and Italy, emmy in Germany or Felyx in the Netherlands. Most providers are already in the starting blocks with regard to expanding their sharing services to other cities.
When Cooltra, today the largest scooter rental company in the world, provided the world's first electric scooters in Spain in 2012, the fleet consisted exclusively of GOVECS vehicles. The business model developed rapidly and soon turned into scooter sharing all over the world. The cooperation with the world's first e-scooter sharer Scoot Networks from San Francisco (USA) was established in 2014.
Electric scooters are also becoming more and more popular in the sharing business for cost reasons. This is because suppliers can make enormous savings in fleet management: fewer wearing parts mean less maintenance and, as a rule, hardly any downtime. If the quality of the components used is right. This is because sharing scooters are subject to particularly high loads and must be correspondingly robust.
