The cloud-native micro-services architecture enables modular feature delivery, 24/7 availability and on-demand scalability, enabling the platform to offer near real-time data integration and advanced analytics power and paving the way for future developments in machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Sofico is already working with a number of existing clients to use the new services platform to help them transform their current operations and expand into a broader portfolio of service offerings and business models with a wide portfolio of different mobility modes and providers, and various integrations of data flows and financial transactions.

The new platform is also powering latest mobile, web and analytics solutions. This includes Sofico’s latest driver companion app, which brings a range of powerful location-based features for on-the-move users and can be offered as a white-label solution and tailored to meet specific needs.

The platform also underpins Sofico’s work on a new generation of customisable and brandable web portals for fleet customers, drivers and other business partners, with greater functionality and integration with Content Management Systems.

Sofico chief technology officer Piet Maes said the new services platform, and the new mobile, web and analytics solutions powered by it, would provide Sofico’s customers with the system they required going forward to future proof their businesses in the light of fast-changing market conditions.

“Although Miles is the world’s leading hybrid fleet and retail contract management system, the mobility ecosystem is being disrupted rapidly and we need to continually run to keep ahead. Our clients need quicker time-to-market for new service offerings, with access to faster processing, large amounts of data and business intelligence upon which they can take better informed business decisions, across a variety of different channels and delivered through the cloud.”
