Bestmile announces the opening of an Asian sales office in Singapore and will debut its presence with an exhibit the Connected Car/Smart Mobility Asia 2018 conference held September 5-7 in Singapore.
Bestmile’s Asia sales representative Wee Kiat Kay be and hand and he will be featured in a panel discussion on “Connected Vehicles and Future Mobility” at the conference.
“We’re expanding as demand for our Mobility Services Platform grows,” Cottle said. “We are basing our Asia operations in Singapore for its strategic location and because the country has long been a leader in smart transportation.”
Bestmile’s Mobility Services Platform is used by transit operators, transportation network companies, taxi companies and OEM mobility providers around the world to plan, deploy and optimize autonomous shuttle, ridehailing, robotaxi and micro-transit services. The turnkey solution has everything mobility service providers need to get new services up and running quickly, from traveler mobile apps to sophisticated dispatching and ride matching algorithms.
“It’s an exciting time to work with mobility service providers in Asia,” Kay said. “In many cities and countries, public and private operators are already deploying new mobility services at scale and the Bestmile platform can help them accelerate deployments with a turnkey solution.”
Asia is home to many of the fastest-growing cities in the world, and Connected Car/Smart Mobility Asia will draw some 3,500 representatives from public and private transit businesses throughout the region looking for ways to leverage new mobility services and technologies to reduce congestion and pollution in urban centers.
The Bestmile platform is unique in that it supports human and autonomous vehicles, any vehicle brand, fixed-route and on-demand services, and integrates easily with operator back-end systems. Operators can offer human-driven ridehailing or micro-transit services today, and add autonomous vehicles and services as they become available. The platform is currently orchestrating fleets throughout Europe and North America, and expanding into Asia represents the next phase of growth.
