Ravensburg-based joint venture of VAPS and Choice receives award for contribution to the adaptive CITY eTaxi.
Ravensburg, August 31st, 2018 | For its contribution to the project "Adaptive Mobility 2 CITY eTaxi", remoso GmbH was awarded the prestigious TOP 100 Award as one of the most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany. This is one of the few lighthouse projects of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. "Less is more" is the motto of this research project. The aim is to operate a fleet of electric taxis for urban areas with flexible deployment options. An essential part of this mobility concept is the intelligent fleet management of remoso GmbH, which ensures smooth demand, control and processing of the rental process.
Christoph Schwarz, Managing Director of remoso GmbH, says: "We are very happy about this special award, which widely confirms our team’s innovative strength, and we will continue to do our utmost to provide our customers with state-of-the-art solutions based on research results."
The official award ceremony, hosted by science journalist, physicist and TV presenter Ranga Yogeshwar, took place on June 29th, 2018 in Ludwigsburg, Germany. The TOP 100 innovation competition was launched in 1993. It is the only competition in Germany that honors innovation management. Over the years it has established itself as the most important award for innovative medium-sized companies. Jury members include numerous leading figures from politics, the media, business and society.
"Innovative companies are an important and distinguishing part of the business location Ravensburg. The remoso GmbH is a highly innovative company and develops products and concepts in a business field with a strong future. I congratulate the entire team of remoso GmbH for this great award, personally and in the name of the city of Ravensburg", says Daniel Rapp, head mayor of Ravensburg.
In managing director Christoph Schwarz’s opinion, the mobility of the future will be much more colourful than ever before. "The classic drivetrain and vehicle concepts will continue in the longer term, but they will be enriched with new forms such as highly flexible car sharing, ride sharing, automated driving and the use of various mobility offers within a single booking process. This is made possible by an overarching platform that brings together all kinds of mobility options. Together with our customers, we research and implement ideal software solutions for future individual mobility requirements", he explains. Accordingly, remoso GmbH is involved in various research projects.
