Free-floating car sharing and e-mobility in one platform

Dr. Stephan von Schorlemer | Head of Mobility Platfrom App Developmemt | Volkswagen AG

We provided significant support to the VW subsidiary UMI in the development of an e-car sharing platform. From architecture to agile coaching to development, our employees took on leading tasks in almost all areas and components of the project.

Key areas of cooperation


The goal of the collaboration was to realise a future-proof and sustainable e-car sharing platform as well as a functional MVP in a few months. Above all, the ambitious schedule for a market-ready product with high scaling demands presented many challenges.

Key factors

  • Business Intelligence/Data Science
  • Cloud-native
  • Continuous Deployment
  • DevOps
  • Performance and Scalability
  • Serverless Computing
  • Scrum


  • Integration and implementation of agile principles
  • Implementation of complex requirements for middleware and website
  • Conception of the platform architecture
  • Provision of KPIs for UMI
  • Front-end development for extensive back-office and customer care applications
  • Development of native apps for iOS and Android
  • Use of modern design principles


As of 2019, the innovative application was successfully in operation in two cities with more than 200,000 users with approximately 2,300 e-vehicles. In addition to fast registration via automated identification procedures, the platform also impresses with the automatic billing of parking fees and an app-controlled vehicle locking system. Thanks to its high performance, the platform scales as planned even with strongly increasing usage.
