One of the issues that has emerged during this phase of reopening economic activities is related to the mobility of company employees and collaborators.
The choice of Corporate Car Sharing in fact, in addition to representing a mobility solution for company employees in this complex travel phase, optimizes management of the company car fleet, providing monitoring of vehicle usage and mileage, reducing fleet management costs and CO2 emissions.
Targa Telematics application technologies allow LeasePlan to offer a user-friendly mobility solution for the driver and to support the activities of fleet and mobility managers, engaged, even more so in this post-Covid phase, in managing the travel of their colleagues in safely. Corporate Car Sharing, in fact, is aimed at a corporate community, monitored from a health point of view according to the company policies imposed by ministerial decrees, and represents a valid alternative to public transport.
LeasePlan turned to the expertise of Targa Telematics for its Corporate Car Sharing solution, including a web portal and an App dedicated to the driver, through which it is possible to book the vehicle, indicating the time, date and place of pick-up, contact the help-desk available 24/7 to solve any problems, view the scheduled trips, see the history of bookings made and receive notifications. Moreover, the keyless technology adopted makes it possible to offer an easy-to-use service, accessible at all times and without the need for direct contact between users, which is important in this particular period.
Many fleet managers, especially in the supply chain of essential services, are showing interest in the shared corporate mobility solution proposed by LeasePlan and Targa Telematics. There are more than one hundred companies, mainly corporates, in the northwest of the country, in particular in the pharmaceutical, chemical and commercial sectors, 80% of which are interested in cars and 20% in commercial vehicles. The most popular powertrain, together with diesel engines, is full electric, completely supported by Targa Telematics‘ hi-tech solution, responding effectively to the growing demand for sustainable solutions, a priority objective for both companies.
“We are very proud to have chosen a reliable and authoritative partner such as Targa Telematics for this important product, which, with the difficulties of public transport in this reopening phase, can make a concrete contribution to mobility and the eagerly-awaited recovery of the automotive sector in this country and the economy in general,“ said Alberto Viano, CEO of LeasePlan Italia.

Thanks to our expertise in smart mobility and to LeasePlan’s dynamism and market leadership, we have co-created a Corporate Car Sharing solution suitable for the constantly evolving needs of customers, which will support them in managing their new corporate mobility needs,“ said Nicola De Mattia, CEO of Targa Telematics.
