We are the Marketplace for the

Mobility Ecosystem

A B2B brokering platform that does it all. Providing an open, neutral, state-of-the-art, secure and trusted marketplace for all participants. We make it easy to search & compare data and customers to deal with, the implementation is fast, legal, cost effective & reliable, operations and monitoring are transparent and on time.

The Marketplace

Unified access to harmonised data & services

Our platform generates significant cost savings for all the market players operating in the highly fragmented mobility ecosystem. Through a single point of access, partners will be able to connect to a large range of different suppliers and customers. All the data available on the platform is being harmonised to match into a precise data index, providing all partners full transparency of the exact data points available.
This standardised data format means that service providers need only integrate with us through our APIs once, rather than entering into many different relationships with automotive OEMs and other data providers, while also wrestling with a variety (and changing) array of data formats and categories across companies.

Stay ahead of the curve &

connect to our open platform

Our marketplace supports the monetisation of your connected & static vehicle data and services. We bring together all providers, harmonise their data, match them with customers and help identifying the market price for their offers – all independent of the respective technology (e.g., OBDII, Extended Vehicle).
We are focussing on providing the data brokering infrastructure and are not offering data or services ourselves. We are the enabler, not a competitor to our partners. This true neutrality is important & reflected in our shareholding too.

If you want to monetise your assets you can easily create a listing including description, meta-data, pricing model and T&Cs of delivery.
We’ll tackle the technical integration together & after successful implementation you’ll let the data flow.

You need some guidance? – No Problem.

We support your journey to the mobility marketplace. With our experience from other onboardings, we can give you a head start and be your go-to-market accelerator. We help to shape and set goals & define KPIs, support in use case elicitation, documentation, prioritiation and help to pitch the business cases for internal decision making.

Based on a highly scalable cloud service stack ensuring reliability, performance and flexibility

We have invested heavily in the technical infrastructure to support a machine to machine flow of data in a standardised format in near real time, once a purchase or data subscription has been arranged.
Providing a secure platform and respecting the privacy of data owners is vital to the future success of the whole ecosystem. As a result, our platform is secure by design, built on AWS with Auth0 authentication, plus every data and service that a company wants to onboard is checked for GDPR-compliance.
Additionally, we developed a Oauth2-based infrastructure for end user consent management and consent propagation in a data logistic chain that stretches across several partners.
