HIGHLIGHT… glide.io 

First established in 2015, glide.io is now part of the Mobilize ecosystem and is the developer of a platform of carsharing services that optimize fleet management. Building on its experience with operating shared mobility services, glide.io designs, develops and runs its platform for all types of customers, while also developing software solutions tailored to their needs.  

The technology delivered by glide.io can be easily connected to vehicles of any type – ICE, hybrid or electric – regardless of whether they are new or pre-owned. It is made available to companies, which then offer it to their employees, for work and/or personal use. In addition, glide.io caters to mobility operators as well as to car rental companies looking to expand their carsharing services to include the general public or to digitize an existing business activity. Car manufacturers, such as Renault, also use these digital tools to bring innovations to their dealership network, especially for the management of replacement and demonstrator vehicles. 

Today, the glide.io platform aggregates more than 6,000 shared and connected vehicles, and more than 200,000 users avail themselves of its carsharing and sustainable mobility services.
