On Thursday 7 November 2019, the Fleet Europe Awards ceremony took place in Estoril, Portugal. Vaigo was nominated in the category ‘Smart Mobility Start-Up of the Year’ and managed to obtain the first place and claim the prize. Hard work pays off!
Together with 10 other finalists nominated in the same category, we flew all the way to Portugal to attend the Fleet Europe Summit in the beginning of November. Feeling already excited to be nominated and recognised internationally for our work regarding smart mobility solutions, actually winning the award was something we could only dream of. You could say we were more than thrilled when we heard Vaigo was announced as the winner of 2019!
The winner was determined by a combination of jury votes (70%) and public votes (30%) via the Fleet Europe Summit website. We topped Nauto, an AI fleet management and tracking system, and Chargery, a full-service platform for future mobility, who obtained a second and third place respectively.
What made us stand out?
Our platform unburdens fleets of mobility services vendor management, from managing B2B-contract to encapsulation of a wide range of consumer applications. Our customers also select our tool for its ability to enable a multi-MaaS strategy across different regions.
“Vaigo is the connection between flexible mobility policies, employers and their drivers,” said our CEO Roeland Vanrenterghem during his pitch at the Smart Mobility Area of the Fleet Europe Village. “Why we won? I think it’s because we provide a really unique solution that solves the issue many HR directors struggle with.”
There’s more: media support package
Besides our first place and a shiny award, we also received a media support package from Fleet Europe worth €10,000. Both runners-up were also lauded for their achievements with a package worth €5,000 and €2,500 respectively.
A big thank you to everyone who voted for us and for believing in this new way of mobility. Together we can make the change!
