Kinto UK drives mobility offering under Mobilleo tie-up
Kinto UK, formerly Inchcape Fleet Solutions and now part of Toyota, is accelerating its mobility offering with the deployment of Fleetondemand’s Mobilleo MaaS platform.
Kinto is now the global brand for Toyota’s mobility services and the UK outfit was formed in June this year when Inchcape was rebranded following its acquisition by Toyota Fleet Mobility in December 2019.
The business will provide a full range of mobility services, from car sharing, carpooling and subscription to leasing solutions in the UK.
It’s using the Mobilleo platform to drive developments, providing a MaaS platform that can be deployed by any business and used, via desktop or smartphone, to suit the different policies and mobility requirements of any organisation.
Benefits include cost savings through consolidation of travel booking and expenses, alternatives to company cars, cash allowance and grey fleet usage, enhancing employee benefit programmes, improving CSR policies, or driving total cost of mobility intelligence across the business.
The multi-modal solution can also be used to get instant access to thousands of global mobility providers in one place for car hire, car clubs, taxis, buses, demand responsive transit, trains, trams, tube, flights, ferries, bike sharing, hotels, parking and more. It enables users to find, book and pay for their entire journey in seconds, supported by a mobility budgets feature and a bespoke management reporting suite for employers.
Commenting on the tie-up with Mobilleo, Matthew Rumble, CEO at Kinto UK, commented: “For Kinto in the UK, this is a huge step towards our goal of becoming a mobility company of choice for our valued customers now and in the future.
“We understand that the way people and businesses move is changing and our new solution will enable us to support our customers as they begin on their mobility journey. With a number of schemes already in the pipeline, I am excited to see how we can help shape the future of fleet & travel for many companies across the UK.”
Fleetondemand’s head of business mobility as service, Matt Terry, added: “The acceleration of business MaaS is reaching an inflection point as we head into 2021. Businesses are now starting to consider the wider mobility mix going forward and what this means sitting alongside the use of company cars.
“Looking to the future we are extremely excited to be working with Kinto UK. Our partnership ensures their customers will be the first organisations in Europe to have access to all-encompassing total cost of mobility schemes.”
