Almost twelve flight hours and 9,435 kilometres beeline are separating San Francisco and Munich – halfway around the world. And still: Munich-based GOVECS GmbH managed to sell 150 of their electric scooters to the sunny city at the West Coast of the USA.
Our customer is the company Scoot Networks. It is the largest free-float provider for electric scooter sharing world-wide. Well, most tend to think that this should not be a problem, as there are enough manufacturers. However, the crux of the matter was that Scoot Networks wanted to integrate a software in the scooters that is absolutely indispensable for the sharing business, but there was no manufacturer able to directly and easily implement this integration. It would have involved time consuming and cost intensive reconstructions.
