Stage Intelligence Partners with Smovengo to Optimise Paris’ Bike Share Scheme with Artificial Intelligence
Riders Across the Largest Bike Share Scheme in the Western World Benefit from an Intelligent, Efficient and Data-Driven User Experience
Stage Intelligence, the leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform provider for Mobility and Logistics, has partnered with the Smovengo, a consortium made up of Smoove, Moventia, Mobivia and Park Indigo, to deploy its BICO AI optimization platform across the Velib in Paris, France. The partnership enables Smovengo to use AI to increase the usability of more than 21,000 bikes of which 7000 will be electric.
Smovengo uses BICO to collect and visualise data, automate processes and optimise working environments, resulting in new efficiencies, cost reductions and a better Bike Share experience.
“Our partnership with Smovengo is a milestone in our business and we’re proud to be serving the largest Bike Share Scheme in the Western World. It demonstrates BICO’s scalability, resiliency and ability to simplify a complex and dynamic scheme. This partnership shows that we can execute at the highest level,” said Tom Nutley, CEO at Stage Intelligence.
As part of the partnership, Stage Intelligence is expanding BICOs features to include the management of E-Bikes and Hybrid Bikes while also adding Broken Bike and User Availability applications. BICO is continually evolving by supporting docked and electric bikes as well as solving logistics, transit and user-based rebalancing challenges whilst revolutionising the mobility, logistics and operating space.
“The BICO AI optimization platform enables us to drive operational efficiency while offering riders the best possible experience when they use our Bike Share Scheme. We have already seen rides of 6 to 10 per bike per day on our mechanical and e-bike respectively. That benefits our organisation but more importantly it makes Paris a healthier and more sustainable city,” said Pierre Heyraud, COO at Smovengo. “We selected BICO because it unlocks the potential of data in our scheme and enables us to move faster to serve the needs of riders. It is an essential tool for optimizing and growing a Bike Share Scheme.”
Stage Intelligence has deployed BICO in Chicago, US, Guadlajara, Mexico, and Helsinki, Finland. In November 2018, Stage Intelligence was selected by Tembici to deploy BICO in cities across Brazil including Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Recife, Salvador, Port Alegre and Vila Velha. Phase 2 deployments include Santiago, Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
